If you’ve watched Anthony Boudain’s No Reservations, you’ve seen him feature the Japadog hot dog cart in the Vancouver episode (around the minute 7:20 mark in this youtube clip)  The one thing I wanted to be sure to do while we were home was to hit that cart.


They feature a few different styles, but basically it’s super duper friendly smiley Japanese folks serving hot dogs, Japanese-style.


Turkey dogs, pork dogs, beef dogs or veggie dogs on a regular bun but topped with daikon radish and miso or teriyaki sauce and nori. I know it really sounds weird, but holy smokes, it’s delicious.

terimayo. nom.

Vancouver has a weird by-law that the only street cart food that can be sold is hot dogs, so this is a fantastic alternative when you just need something on the go downtown. Crazy tasty.

The signage cracks me up too. Ice-Cube! 10 times!


Word on the street is that they’re opening a brick and mortar location on Robson Street so they can serve a few more options than just dogs, so I’m putting that on my list for the next visit. Might help alleviate some of the giant lines too.
