Should one be proud or ashamed if they consume more hot dogs in one summer than they have over the course of a few years? Quite frankly, I'm ambivalent; it's simply fact of my life. Fortunately, the total of hot dogs I've eaten is still less than the number Joey Chestnut can down in a minute. So there's that.
The only Canadian food request Brian had was to go to the Japadog, a Japanese-style hot dog stand that started in Vancouver. Although the city felt so Euro to me, it's actually very Asian influenced, and home to Canada's largest Chinatown. The original Japadog stand was just down the street from our hotel downtown so we stopped to see what the hype was about. The Spicy Cheese Terimayo topped with seaweed did not disappoint.
Yes, seaweed. You won't see that on any hot dog in Tejas!
Japadog sure know how to make a mean hotdog. Could the key be high-quality Kobe beef? Texas, it's time to step it up. Hot dogs are so haute right now.
