Slaw like cole slaw, but it's not traditional cole slaw.   It's a mustard based concoction with lots of onions.   And yes, the chili has to be very finely ground meat and no beans.

The chili in MI dogs might be similar to your first link.  But they don't put the slaw on in MI, I believe the onions are just chopped raw onions.  I never have them on mine though, just mustard.

Well they can't because for one they didn't have the homemade ones I had 20 years ago that were so good.  And for 2 it would be narrow minded to think that no other places had bagels as good if one hasn't tried them at all.

I caught an episode of triple D on the Food Network and Guy did an blurb on a restaurant that was all hot dogs...in Hawaii.

Beans do not belong in chili!

I don't have time to look at your links.  That's fine if NYC bagels or pizza were voted best or something.  That has nothing to do with my inlaws opinions.  But that doesn't mean that there aren't bagles in places that are as good.  And you haven't tried my bagle place here so you really can't say.  Shrug

Bagels, pizza and large pretzels are all part of that NY experience I absolutely adore there.  To hear someone disagree with that is just insane, Lol.

The best large soft pretzels are in Munich, preferably served with Obatzda.
