Sam, has anyone yet told you about Japadog? It's a Vancouver, BC thing, so I know it's well out of your way, but I think they're the kind of success story you'd like, even if I have no idea how your supertaster tongue would feel about the fusion of Japanese food and hot dogs.
Okay but I tend to really love the flavors in Japanese cooking and this food looks FUCKING AMAZING. I need to taste a lot of these hot dogs and EsPECIALLY the croquette dog, the avocado dog, the kobe beef with SELECT KETCHUP, the fried bun with ice cream, and the butter-and-shoyu fries.
VANCOUVER! *shakes fist*
Actually it looks like there’s one in LA and I may be in LA next July, so. I WILL HUNT IT DOWN.
BUTTER AND SHOYU FRIES.
