Japadog (Burrard)- Vancouver’s Most Famous Food Cart Never Disappoints

Rae and I headed to downtown Vancouver for some quick lunch
yesterday and had initially planned on trying the Tacofino food truck. However
we couldn’t find it so we assumed it sold out and packed up for the day already. 🙁 I was so glad our
alternative, Japadog, was still operating because we were starving!!! We went
to the original Burrard location.

I believe everyone can almost memorize the menu already
because if you’re like me, you’ve begun to familiarized yourself with what sort of offerings they have. 😛 Since I’ve never had the Oroshi ($5.25) before and
Rae highly recommended it, I decided to get this. It contains Bratwurst sausage
with grated radish and green onion on top.

Their “Many Celebrities in Japadog” sign was super
interesting to read while waiting for our food.

The Oroshi looks like this. I really loved it because the
shredded radish provided a fresh and light contrast to the meaty sausage. The bun was
soft and nicely toasted which was nice. Be warned, it gets quite messy but whatever, it should never stop you from eating a Japadog! Muahaha

They have a whole bunch of condiments so we just piled it
on. LOL. Rae’s Oroshi looked like this.

My Oroshi looked like this. I love putting wasabi mayo on
my hotdog because it makes everything so ridiculously yummy! I kinda want
another Japadog right now… mm…

  • As much as I admit I liked Japadog in its heydays, I believe they are now just resting on their laurels. Their secret to success ain't much of a secret any more and, once you have tried it, you realize that most of the ingredients can be purchased in your local ethnic market (in this case, T&T or Fujiya). So, in the end, you can pretty much make it yourself. And, yes, I have done so. Had their price point hadn't spiked to the current price point, great, it beats making it myself, I would like it more. Nowadays, I would rather go somewhere else…

    (Oh, it is not shredded daikon; it is grated)

    Sheesh, does KimHo ever like anything ever? Japadog's product is the same as its ever been. If you think you can get Kurobuta sausage at either T&T or Fujiya, you're kidding yourself. Also, you can't fault a product just because you can make it at home. I can make sushi at home, and the ingredients are available everywhere, but does that mean anything? No.

    (Oh, you should stop making pithy comments on various blogs; it is grating)
