Introducing the Japadog – A new kind of Hotdog: Vancouver BC

The Oroshi

As Annie and I were driving around to look for a place to eat in Downtown Vancouver a few months ago, we spotted this hotdog cart with a huge line. The sign on the cart said “Japadog”. Could these Japadogs put the infamous LA bacon-wrapped we know and love to shame? And so the love affair began. The Menu: The Terimayo ($4.25) is the most popular. An all-beef dog, grilled and topped with nori (seaweed), grilled onions, teriyaki sauce, and wasabi mayo. The Misomayo ($5), a turkey dog topped with sesame sauce, wasabi mayo, and kaiware. (daikon radish sprouts) The Oroshi ($4.50), a pork sausage topped with daikon oroshi (grated radish), scallions, and soy sauce. Annie tried the Oroshi and substituted the pork sausage with a vegetable hotdog. After a few bites, she wished she hadn’t made the substitution and trashed it. I ordered the Terimayo and I got it with a turkey hotdog instead of the beef. I had high expectations, it looked really appetizing, but it was such a weird combo, and wasn’t an instant hit. We both agreed afterwords that it probably is an acquired taste and could be really good if we found the right combo of condiments. And so our love for LA bacon-wrapped hotdogs grew that day. We will never doubt you again… Japadog website The Terimayo and Misomayo
