Fresh baked baguettes and menu items like the Paris Signature Sosess, the Bavarian, and the Napolitano.
You wouldn't think we're talking about hot dogs but that's exactly what we're featuring in this week's Best Bites.
Sosess Gourmet Hot Dogs, on Menaul east of San Mateo, puts an international twist on an American classic.
To be quite frank, you won't find a traditional hot dog here.
Sosess serves 100% beef Hebrew National hot dogs on a fresh baked baguette from the Swiss Alps bakery up the street.
Menu items include the special of the day like the "My Big Fat Greek" hot dog.
For something with a kick there's the ABQ.
"So in the ABQ we have turkey bacon, we have the Hebrew National hot dog, the melted cheddar, Hatch New Mexico green chile and cilantro leaves," explains chef Rick Pedram.
For something very different, you can try the Asian.
On top of the hot dog is crushed pineapple, Asian slaw made of red cabbage, sesame seeds, teriyaki sauce and a squeeze of lime.
So where does the name Sosess come from?
"The name Sosess is a take on the French word for sausage which is S-A-U-C-I-C-E with an accent," says co-owner Amy Lapidus-Pedram.
However you spell it, Sosess is serving up an old-time favorite with some new twists.
