Four things about hot dogs

The biggest! —The Guinness World Record for the world’s largest hot dog goes to the Akasaka Prince Hotel in Tokyo, which was 60.3 m in length.

Mind your manners —There is hot dog etiquette. Use tongs when picking hot dogs up from a serving tray. Puncturing them with a fork causes juices to get out.  When dressing a dog, add liquid toppings like ketchup and mustard first, then toppings like cheese, onions or relish. It is best to apply toppings to the dog, not the bun.   

Variations on a classic —Exploring the world of hotdogs, you will find some creative ideas.  Some unique ideas include, The French-fry-encased frank in South Korea, which is sold at road-side artisan stands. In New York, you can find a $14 hot dog called The Ditch Dog in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village. The hot dog is encased in a potato bun and topped with Gruyere/American/Parmesan mac ‘n cheese.

First class dog —Looking to splurge on your hotdog purchase,  Serendipity 3 on Manhattan’s Upper East Side goes for $69. The “haute” dog is a 12-inch-long pure beef frankfurter grilled in white truffle oil. It’s then served on a salted pretzel bun from Germany and coated with white truffle butter. The condiments are extravagant and include duck fois gras, black truffles, caramelized Vidalia onions, heirloom tomato ketchup and Dijon mustard with more black truffles.
