Two Hands continues its New York expansion plans with a second location

The city’s selection of Hot Cheetos-dusted, fried potato-encrusted Korean corn dogs continues to grow this week. Two Hands, a national Korean corn dog chain that debuted its first New York location in the East Village this spring, has opened a new restaurant in Soho, at 250 Mott Street, between Prince and East Houston streets, where its serving the popular mozzarella and sausage dogs for takeout and delivery.

The restaurant specializes in Korean corn dogs, the sugar- and crispy rice-coated creations that are popping up — and drawing lines — across the city. The Soho outpost is the second New York location for Two Hands, a national brand with close to a dozen locations across California, Texas, and Arizona. Nationally, the company has nearly 30 additional locations in the works, according to its website, including two in New York, though their locations are not known at this time.

Takeout and delivery are available Monday to Thursday from 12 to 8 p.m., and Friday to Sunday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
