I happen to be married to a HUGE hotdog fan, and when we saw this place on a food network show a few months prior to our Vancouver trip, we immediately added it to the list. Mistake. The meat in the dogs is low quality,...More

Normally, I do not eat hotdogs, but we passed a mobile cart near Railway station, so we stop. We had number 2 oconomi and #5 teriyamo. Both where very good with toppings which are hard to describe. Flaky stuff and different sauces. You can make...More

This is a very busy place during mid-day. The hot-dog offerings are unique and very delicious! You have to try these dogs when in Vancouver. There are also a few stands scattered throughout the city, usually with long line-ups.

I've wanted to try Japadog ever since first hearing about them when Vancouver hosted the Winter Olympics. This little hot dog cart definitely lived up to the hype. I ordered their most popular option, the #1 Terimayo. It was covered in seaweed, Japanese mayo, onions,...More

Okay, we don't have Japadog in Hawaii even though we have a big Japanese community. I had to try a Japadog! Had the #2 at first and it was okay. I guess, I don't really like binto flakes! But the #1 was by far so...More
