Whenever we’re in Vancouver, we scout out Japadog – delicious, Japanese inspired street cart hot dogs. If you’re in Vancouver, you will know their deliciousness. If you live in LA, you’re in luck! They’ve opened a food truck there and have plans for two more. I’m excited for you!
While LA is a 4 hour flight, Vancouver is only a 90 minute ferry ride. Despite this, we don’t get over as much as we’d like. A $200 with car round trip isn’t exactly a budget weekend adventures. Thanks BC Ferries (note sarcasm).
So, instead of travelling over to the mainland and biting into a delicious Oroshi or Kurobuta, I decided to make our own. Behold, the miso glazed hot dog, complete with various Japanese toppings!
The toppings are endless – you can be as simple or as fancy as you’d like. Each hot dog got a miso glaze mix, then was topped with varying combinations of japanese mayo (the only mayo I’ll ever eat), crispy seaweed, kurogoma (black sesame seeds), and crispy dried ramen noodles.
Other topping ideas are:
- Kimchi (technically Korean, but it’s all over Japan)
- Teriyaki sauce
- Pickled ginger
The options are endless.
