Marmet Edition: Chum's Hotdogs
The hotdog stand with the yellow slaw calls Marmet home, but its reputation has stretched far beyond the Charleston area.
When I had some free time in Charleston, I headed out Chum's to get my hands on one of those yellow slawdogs. Walk up to the right window. Order a hotdog with everything. The man behind the counter really, really struggled with my name before finally just asking my last name. I waited for the left window to open and call my name.
Then, time to dive in. The slaw is a good bit sweet (honey?), the sauce was just a perfect amount of savory hidden under the slaw, and onions were plentiful enough to add a nice crunch to most bites. This is a solid contributor to the hot dog culture in West Virginia - and a different one, at that.
