CRESCENTA VALLEY WEEKLY — Sidling Up for A Taste
Joining 9021Pho last weekend in Los Angeles was Pasadena’s Dog Haus, the ever-popular destination that offers an array of hot dogs, sausages and burgers that stretches that traditional concept of American cuisine. Having recently formed a partnership with Chef Adam Gertler, Dog Haus has found the ability to attract new audiences with offerings that are immediately recognized as adventurous and intriguing. This attitude was on full display at The Taste where founding partner André Vener helped attendees cope with the heat of the afternoon with a Red Thai CurryWursts with Sooo Cali toppings. It has been said that fortune favors the bold, and this marriage of Eastern flavors on a traditional German dish with a Californian flair certainly did its part in proving that particular idiom correct. This past weekend, some of the best culinary minds in the city presented their offerings to hungry hordes of Angelenos. Restaurants like 9021Pho and Dog Haus proved that this side of town can compete with the best of them.
