Canadian Hot Dog Sensation Japadog Now Open on St. Mark's Place

30 St. Mark's Place, East Village
Status: Now Open
The wait is finally over: the first NYC location of Vancouver's Japadog is now open on St. Mark's Place in the East Village. As the name implies, the shop specializes in sausages topped with all sorts of Japanese-style sauces, meats, and vegetables — one dog is even buried under a pile of caviar and wasabi mayo. For side dishes, they offer "shaked fries," which are fries dusted with an assortment of flavor spices, and for dessert you can get "sweet dogs" which are fried hot dog buns stuffed with ice cream.

The Vancouver shop got a big plug on Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations a few years back, and "Mark Zakerberg" is also a big fan. Check out the menu below, and do send any early reports our way.
