This past weekend, I was in Vancouver and had what is probably the greatest Hot Dog innovation since they were poked with sticks, dipped in corn bread batter and deep fried. The Japadog! Think Hallo Berlin Cart meets Cafe Zaiya…
You would think that New York City would be at the forefront of all hot dog stand innovations. And yet somehow Vancouver totally beat us to the punch on this one. A hot dog topped with Japanese condiments. Simple and amazing. How popular would one of these stands be in Midtown?
I had the Oroshi, and wrote about it for Serious Eats. Read about it here: http://www.seriouseats.com/eating_out/2007/09/serious-sandwiches-the-japadog.html
