$100 Hot Dog from Dougie Dog

Many of you may be familiar with the funky hot dog statue when you walk around downtown.  The first time that I walked in Dougie Dog, I was only expecting a fancy hot dog shop with the usual orders that you would get from any hot dog stand. But as I approached the counter and looked up at the menu, I was immediately dazzled by the different ingredients that they put into the hot dogs! Ingredients that you would not imagine such as mac & cheese, whiskey infusion and even pineapples! Besides the crazy but delicious ingredients, Dougie dog was also widely known for its $100 hot dog called the Dragon Dog. Many of you may be wondering what is in the bun that would give it such a luxurious price. According to CBC News, the hot dog contains “Bratwurst (a type of German pork sausage), kobe beef, truffle oil, drips of $2000 cognac, and Atlantic lobsters”.


Here are some of the other hot dogs

Charlie ‘Mac’ Dog: Bacon, Mac & Cheese, Melted Cheddar
Krif Daw: Deep Fried Bacon Wrap, Pineapple, Green Onions

Dougie Dog is also well known for its fresh tap root beer.

Would you pay $100 for the Dragon Dog? If you have tried one before, how was it?

  • I’ve heard a lot of buzz about this place but I haven’t heard anyone willing to fork up $100 for a hot dog. The other items do look pretty awesome!!
