Wienerama: The Beijing hot dog scene heats up again

I figured the hot dog craze had leveled or even tailed off but it appears that lips and assholes packaged in tubular form are again gaining momentum. Luga’s Basement advertised hot dogs for its recent opening party and Paddy O’Shea’s is doing the same for the upcoming World Cup. And a place called Hot Dog has opened across from Workers Stadium North to join local area wiener joints No More Bunz, Stadium Dog, and the carts in front of Vics and Shooters, among others. For some reason, Hot Dog is using the traditional wiener roller to heat noodles and instead cooking theirs in a toaster oven: Mine came slightly raw in the center, was in a prepackaged bun, and cost RMB15. Not the best dog, but if you’re drunk or hungry enough, it’ll do. And this place has added value for those who want to make photocopies or buy a stuffed animal while they eat (that bear on the top shelf is RMB90, in case you are wondering).

For what it’s worth, I like the grilled dog at No More Bunz and the toppings at Stadium Dog, with the chili dog at Hooters getting serious consideration.

  1. being able to make copies and eat at the same time is the greatest innovation since two in one shampoo and conditioner.

  2. I thought when I read “lips and assholes packaged in tubular form” it was going to be an article on Centro.
