How about enjoying some hot dog? Set at Printemps de l’Homme in Paris 9th arrondissement, Café Jules made it its specialty with a whole range of “hot dogs” revisited French style. A “masculine” café inaugurated on the occasion of the opening of the department store’s new concept, the Printemps du Goût and providing – in addition to hot dogs – a totally innovative place opened all day long, from breakfast to dinner.
The idea? “Respecting the original concept of hot dog by improving it and customizing it with quality ingredients”. As a token of quality, the project has been entrusted to a MOF (Meilleur Ouvrier de France) and a very peculiar menu has been created. “Bold” recipes that offer foodies and other high-range street-food fans “a genuine circuit across France around extremely well-sourced produces”.
The particularity of these hot dogs? They’re all called Jules in tribute to Printemps founder, Jules Jaluzot. Dishes reflecting “the gastronomic landscape of a region around an original sausage especially created to order by a butcher” and around an original bun from Maison Keyser.
For each sandwich, you have a bun, a sausage and sides. You have the “Jules Parisien” based on plain bun, Paris ham sausage, Parisian pickles, crispy onions, pickle dressing, as well as the “Basque” with Espelette pepper bun, chorizo and smoked chili sausage, piperade and crispy bacon.
You can also enjoy the “Niçois” with olive bun, veal sausage, arugula, pistou dressing, young sprouts and diced tomatoes, the “Vert” including cereal bun, beetroot sausage, snow peas, arugula, tartare dressing and a vegetal mix or the “Breton” with buckwheat bun, lobster sausage, guacamole and vegetal mix. As many delicious recipes created in order to respect a certain diet balance.
Hot dogs we obviously enjoyed up to the last crumb! We particularly enjoy the Green, a vegetarian sandwich, slightly sweet and very pleasant in the mouth. We also enjoy the Alsacien or the Alpin, the former based on sauerkraut, the latter on cheese, very fine and subtle. Sandwiches that we also enjoy with French fries or sucrine salad for bigger appetites.
And for those who still feel hungry, you can order the salad of the moment or go for the homemade dessert, the “Augustine” as a tribute to former Comédie Française member and Jules Jaluzot’s wife Augustine Figeac. A frozen treat made of fresh and ripe fruits, enhanced with milk from the milking of the day, as well as meringue, cookies, coulis and topped with Fontainebleau cream that is light and smooth.
Menus fitting every hour of the day: so, at breakfast, instead of a hot dog, you can get organic sunny-sides-up, buttery toasts and jam, orange juice and a hot drink. As for the after work, sausage boards take over, along with a beer or the cocktail of the day. A place where everything is possible… Shall we go there, friends?
