My sister-in-law recommended this place, not because she had eaten there, but because she saw Anthony Bourdain eat there. I’m not much into celebrity chefs [this portion edited out in 2018. Please see note below]*
Well, once again yours truly was wrong about something. It turns out that Bourdain was on to something. This place is great. It was one of the more original places I have eaten at in a while.
Japadog offers up grilled hotdogs topped of with Japanese style condiments. Imagine if a sushi chef ran into a hotdog salesman. Two great tastes that taste great together. This is a must do while in Vancouver.
*The portion of this post was written in 2009 when I was a younger man and had a much smaller outlook on life. I made a cheap joke about Anthony Bourdain's drug addiction. Now that I am older, I would like to believe that I would have taken the higher road. Rest in peace, Anthony Bourdain.
