The Portillo’s Garden Dog has been announced in partnership with Field Roast as a new plant-based take on the humble hot dog for patrons to enjoy this spring and summer. The hot dog is made with the Field Roast Signature Stadium Dog as the meat alternative, and comes with a range of Chicago-style toppings. This includes mustard, chopped onions, relish, celery salt, tomatoes, sport peppers and a pickle spear all served on a steamed poppy seed bun.
The Portillo’s Garden Dog is available both in-restaurant as well as for order online via Portillo's.com. The Field Roast Signature Stadium Dog maintains the same amount of protein per serving as a regular hot dog, but features less sodium and no GMOs or nitrites.
