    I remember the NBA shop at Harbourside. I went there around 93 or 94 when NBA cards were all the rage. Got some Skybox, Upperdecks…

    I came to Sydney from NZ on a school rugby tour in 93 and they had a Shaq sized shoe in that shop. It was massive.

    It was more a market down the bottom than a normal shopping mall back then.

    The best thing about that trip was that we could all drink legally, the drinking age was 20 in NZ at the time.

    There was a hotdog joint in the upstairs food court. I occasionally drove from Penrith to there just to get one of their New York Dogs.

    I came to Aus for a month in the 92/93 school holidays after I left school, turned 18 and had my first legal beer here, then went back to NZ and couldn’t legally drink for another couple of years, haha. Not that it really mattered, I got served everywhere when I was 18/19 anyway as I looked older.

    I remember The Keg, Jordans Restaurant, Ettamogah, The James Craig. Was there a Studebakers there? Maybe just the one at Parramatta.

    I'd say its the same place. At that time I dont recall any other hotdog places anywhere. Apart from your basic frank, bun & sauce.

    It does sound like it, it was a specialist place with lots of varieties.

    I lived in East Sydney from 1992 to early 1997 and was a regular at Harry's at the Loo and they had the hot dogs then , I would get one with mushy peas and cheese sauce, I'm 99% certain i was ordering the hot dogs even back in the mid 80s from the Loo site.
