Planning on getting a hot dog for lunch? Well, you probably won’t be buying this one.
The Guinness World Record people have declared the “Dragon Dog” to be the most expensive hot dog in the world.
Created by DougieDog Hot Dogs in Vancouver, Canada, the Dragon Dog will cost you the grand sum of $100, which easily beats the former record of $69 for the Haute Dog at New York’s Serendipity restaurant.
DougieDog was notified of its achievement by Guinness last week.
“Taking the title away from New York, I feel like we just won the Stanley Cup!” said DougieDog Owner and Chief Hot Dog Designer, dougie luv, in a statement.
Perhaps somewhat justifying its price, the Dragon Dog is “infused with hundred-year-old cognac and topped with lobster and Kobe beef.”
Dougie luv said, “There’s no better combination than pork and cognac — especially when the cognac costs $2400 a bottle.”
According to DougieDog, hundreds of customers have already splurged on the 12-inch long Dragon Dog, since it joined the restaurant’s menu in January, which doubtless delights the restaurant’s owners.
