Japa Dog, Vancouver

Northwest corner of Burrard and Smithe streets
Vancouver , British Columbia
Canada V6Z 2K6
view web site ›'s insider take:

Forget the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile. If any place deserves to toot its hot-dog horn, it's this one-of-a-kind Japanese hot dog stand perched at the corner of Burrard and Smithe in front of the tony Sutton Place Hotel. The dogs here are topped with Japanese condiments, so you're likely to hear "Hold the nori!" or "Extra wasabi!" from the hungry hordes ordering lunch. Try the Terimayo—an all-beef wiener with julienned nori (seaweed) shavings, teriyaki sauce, fried onions, and a garnish of thick Japanese mayo—or the tasty Oroshi, a bratwurst decked out with finely shaved daikon radish and green onions, and topped with wasabi and soy sauce. Go a little lighter with the Misomayo, a turkey dog layered with miso mayonnaise, sesame sauce, and kaiware (daikon radish sprouts).—Kasey Wilson

Open, weather permitting, Mondays through Thursdays noon to 7:30 pm, Fridays and Saturdays noon to 9 pm, Sundays 12:30 to 7 pm.
