Review: Japa Dog

by gigi on August 9, 2007

Jenkins and I decided to check out Japa Dog the other day. It is a Japanese-style hot dog stand at Burrard and Smithe just in front of the Sutton Place Hotel.

They have the same hot dogs you would typically find at any hot dog stand, but the real specialty here is the Japanese hot dogs.

I decided on the Terimayo hot dog, which is a beef hot dog with teriyaki sauce, fried onions, mayo, and seaweed. The only real difference between this and most hot dogs that I eat is the mayo and the seaweed. It was good, but a tiny bit too salty for me. Next time, I may ask for less sauce and that may help.

Jenkins had the Oroshi dog. This was a pork bratwurst with grated radish, green onions, and “special house sauce”. I found this to be more original than the terimayo dog. This was also a bit on the salty side, but other than that, was very good.

Japa Dog is definitely a place you have to try at least once..just for kicks. :) The hot dogs are unlike any that you have tried at a typical hot dog stand. They also had a turkey smokie, which came with some baby watercress and miso mayo.

Details:
Corner of Burrard St and Smithe St, Vancouver
This stand appears to be seasonal…I haven’t been able to find it there once the weather turned cold!

Summary:
Food: [rating:3.5]
Service: n/a – there was no real “service” per se but the people who cooked our hot dogs were very friendly.
Price: $
