Japadog: The hot dog of choice in Vancouver
Kobe beef is interesting. If you order a hamburger made from it, you're probably getting scammed. The fat, which is what makes the difference, burns off in the process, and you're eating a burger that might as well have come from an athletic cow. I generally approach a kobe beef hot dog with this healthy skepticism, but time an again, I find that it just doesn't fit with dogs the way it does with burgers. At minibar in Boston, I had a fantastic kobe beef hot dog, and the one I downed at Japadog in Vancouver just confirms it.
Though the Japanese influence is obvious, Japadog makes a concerted effort to connect with its Canadian home. Before munching on your hot dog, take a look at the decorations atop it. The kobe beef dog comes with three Canadian maple leaf shapes on it ... a unique touch on an already unique hot dog.
The Japadog kobe beef dog was the perfect break from the conference I was attending with Corporate Secretary magazine. Even with plenty of free food available, as is always the case at a conference, it seems, it's definitely worth walking a few blocks up the street for a memorable hot dog.
So, that's the top hot dog in Vancover. Take a look at the best dogs in Montreal, below.
