The first time I ever went to Colombia, I arrived in Bogota close to midnight. Starving, my friend and I ventured a few blocks away from our hotel in the unfamiliar city and quickly found a corner hot dog stand. Before we had time to object, the hot dog man was burying our perros in mayonaise, mustard, onions, pineapple and all other kinds of curious toppings. I hesitated, but that first Colombian meal was delicious. Now, as the blog Category 305 reports, Colombian hot dog guru Edgar Gomez is opening his first U.S. restaurant, La Perrada de Edgar, on Collins Ave.
