Papaya King and Barney Greengrass are the two places I hit first when in NYC. But I don't know about the Asianfication of the hotdog, T. I'm more of a "trad" when it comes to weiners.

Kraut and mustard. Chili and mustard. Or if I'm at The Varsity, Chili and Slaw and Cheese and mustard and onions. Adding kimchi to a processed pork tube is asking for ass-on-tap, hon.

As a Bon vivant with a Korean wife, let me encourage you to try cucumber Kim chi. Also as an American let me encourage you to just buy Chicago style hot dogs at every given possibility.

I should hope he knows about the Chicago dog by now!

Let's not even get into where they make it best.

What I really need is a Rosen bun.

Seriously? Kimchi?
I remember what it did to you in the '80's. Seriously!

How could you have it together?? Well, We can not imagine this. I chose this recipe as my today's lunch. (Here is Seoul, Korea)

Yum, kimchi. But hot dogs, no dice. Can't get past the ingredient list, though I want to... delicious and forbidden.

If it ain't a NYC Sabrett, it ain't worth eatin'. The Street Dog of Choice, IMHO.

Gimme an 'Oroshi'. Portillo's had a store here in Tokyo many years ago. It didn't last long. If one can get a supply of Rosen buns, a decent Chicago Dog can be made. Good call. Most buns here are like very long dinner rolls...

Kimchi on a hot dog? Never tried it but sounds fantastic. I've been eating kimchi like crazy lately, same brand as they jar you have. It really grows on you, and I've started to find all kinds of great uses for it.

Chicago Dog = Ew.

CS said...

Koreadog for the win! (Sorry Japadog)

I've never witnessed a kimchi hot dog in Korea(kimchi pizza and hamburger existed briefly), but this sounds like a good idea. Sadly, it is incredibly difficult to find good kimchi in US. So when Americans try kimchi and they dislike it, it's most likely the kimchi's fault.
