Pink’s at LAX

Pink's Chili Dog
I’ve seen Pink’s on tv so many times over the years. It’s a landmark in Hollywood and I’ve always wanted to try it.

After dinner at Osteria Mozza, Sid and family drove me to the airport for my flight back to Manila. On the way, Kevin pointed out Pink’s to me. It was around 7:40 pm and there was a long line. There goes my chance to try it not that I wanted to after that wonderful dinner.

Pink’s has been open in the same location since 1939.

Kevin then told me that Pink’s just opened a branch at LAX airport. Pink’s is at the top of the escalator in the international terminal before the security checkpoints.

Even though I was soooooo full from dinner I forced myself to buy a chili dog. I couldn’t even take a bite so I wrapped it well and took it all the way home to Manila and ate it two days later.

I nuked it in the microwave and enjoyed the chili dog. The chili tasted like mashed beans that was mildly spicy.  I did like the hotdog specially the snap you feel when you bite into it. It wasn’t too salty either. I’m glad I’ve finally tried Pink’s. Maybe next time I have to eat a fresh hotdog.

  1. There is only one thing better than shopping in Hong Kong, and that’s eating. From small noodle joints to upscale French restaurant, you will locate all sorts of restaurant, eating hall and snack stall on earth in Hong Kong. Here I found small amount of Hong-Kong-styled snacks online ( This is definitely a good choice before I have $ for another trip.
