Local epicurean Robert Peyton may have been one of the very first patrons of the Touro neighborhood's newest mobile food vendor, Dat Dog Express, which started slinging sausages a little over a week ago in front of Café Prytania. Writing on his blog Haute Plates blog, Peyton related a brief chat with cart helmsman Darren Davis, who said he'd approached Dat Dog owners Constantine Georges and Skip Murray about the possibility of implementing a mobile version of their enterprise. The dog barons gave a big thumbs up and, after repainting the cart he'd been using to sell his own hot dogs and sausages, Davis was ready to roll. According to Peyton, although Dat Dog Express only has an abbreviated version of the full Dat Dog menu, Davis slings both pork and beef dogs, as well as the rotating sausage selections offered by his Freret Street "mothership." Plus, he's right in front of a bar.
