Love a good hot dog, but don’t know where to go? Read this article I wrote for SCMP’s Food & Wine about the best hot dogs in Hong Kong. All hot dogs mentioned in the article were put through the taste test by me. If you know of others please add a comment below.
Note: In the editing process what I wrote about Wonderdog was changed in a way I don’t agree with and what I actually wrote was:
Brave diners should sample the Devil Dog, which aptly comes with a warning on the menu, “this dog is friggin’ spicy”, a warning repeated by the server. The vivid, blood-red sauce is a mix of habanero chilli, mayo and beetroot juice (for colour) and describing it as hot is an understatement. Thankfully the addition of roasted pimento, fresh cucumber, and caramelised onion (and the bun) cools the palate and balances the spicy notes. While the amount of sauce is bordering on excessive the endorphin high makes this one addictive dog.
