American Corndogs in Century City

American Corndogs

Century City American restaurant in Century City

A visit to Canal Walk Shopping Centre is not a visit to Canal Walk Shopping Centre without stopping for at least one American corn dog. The corn dog is arguably America's most popular 'meat-on-a-stick'. It is made by taking a delicious sausage, impaling it on a not-so-delicious stick, covering it in corn flour, and obviously deep frying it until it has a beautiful, golden brown colour. Try a peanut butter cup and a very American Dr Pepper or Cherry Coke with it and you'll feel as close as can be to the stars and stripes. This wacky take away outlet is situated right in the middle of the food court and is open 24 hours - very American indeed. This little gem is something to experience.
