History was made Sunday, Feb. 23, at the Fremont Market when Tokyo Dog sold the world’s most expensive hot dog for a whopping $169. Co-owner Eugene Woo said he would send the paperwork to Guinness World Records, where the feat will be documented for all of posterity.
The foot-long specialty smoked-cheese brat that put Seattle on the map boasts butter teriyaki grilled onions, maitake mushrooms, wagyu beef, foie gras, shaved black truffles, caviar, and Japanese mayo, all on a brioche bun. Saturday’s sale beats the current record of a $145.49 hot dog in California. Woo said he will donate the proceeds to the American Red Cross. (end)
