49ers unveil Double-Barrel Wagyu Hot Dog with Pork Chicharrones
The San Francisco 49ers organization is in the process of getting moved into the fancy new Levi’s Stadium in nearby Santa Clara as the team prepares for the 2014 NFL season.
Not only is the new stadium a fantastic sports arena — with the technological bells and cutting-edge whistles befitting a $1.2 billion project — but even the concession fare far exceeds the standard of traditional stadium food.
Of course, this is not surprising given the San Francisco area’s reputation as a cosmopolitan enclave with citizens of discriminating tastes.
Among the several highfalutin concession items raising the bar is the Double-Barrel Wagyu Hot Dog with Pork Chicharrones, which is about the fanciest frankfurter ever envisioned.

San Jose Mercury News writer Mike Rosenberg recently profiled the new items that will be offered at Levi’s Stadium, and the fine-dining frankfurter easily tops the list:
The meaty marvel comes from the creative culinary minds behind the stadium’s Bourbon Steak & Pub. It begins with two dogs made of Wagyu beef that are wrapped in bacon, then settled on crispy bread smeared with what appears to be a kind of chunky salsalike sauce.
While that would be good enough for a truly indulgent eating experience, the culinary marvel is kicked up a notch with its atypical toppings, highlighted by fresh guacamole, pico and pork chicharrones. For the uninitiated, chicharrones are fried pork rinds.
