VANCOUVER — Just in time for the Chinese New Year and an appearance on CBC’s Dragon’s Den, Dougie Luv, of Vancouver’s DougieDog Hot Dogs, has introduced the world’s most expensive hotdog to his menu.
“I wanted to come up with something super tasty and high end, true to the traditional identity of the hotdog. A hotdog any hotdog-lover would enjoy,” explained Luv, DougieDog proprietor and chief hotdog designer.
The aptly named $100 Dragon Dog is made with Louis XIII cognac, — at more than $2,000 a bottle — fresh lobster and Kobe beef seared in olive and truffle oil.
The Dragon Dog is reportedly the first hotdog to sell for three figures, challenging the $69 “haute dog” sold at Serendipity restaurant in New York.
