Want a different experience with a Hot Dog Cart?

Great place to experiment with your hot dog type and the condiments. If you crave a different experience with a Hot dog this is the place for you!

Despite to a lot of restaurants in Vancouver, each better then another, our favourite was Japadog. I'm not a hot-dog lover, but so juicy, delicious and tasty meal I had for first time. I definitely recommend to try! Good luck in your business!

Who knew that this little hot dog stand could pack so much flavor! I am a huge hot dog fan, but not so much a Japanese cuisine fan. However, this is different and it's absolutely delicious. They ran out of the Kobe beef, so we tried the kurobuta pork instead. So very juicy and flavorful. We bought one to try... More

on a friend's advice we stopped to have a Japadog - it was delicious and quite possibly the best food we had in Vancouver. There was always a line, as they make the food when you order. Nothing is sitting all day. Food is fresh and yummy! If we stayed in Vancouver longer, we would've gone again.

When we were visiting Vancouver we were actually staying in North Vancouver. We took the Sea Bus accross to downtown Vancouver. Then we walked over to Stanley Park via the trail by the water. We get to Stanley Park and there's a concession stand. And behind it is a Japadog stand. I've heard about them and wanted to try it.... More

Japadog offers some very unique hot dogs in Vancouver, BC. It's a Japanese - American fusion hot dog stand. I was a little skeptical how a teriyaki mayo hot dog with seaweed would taste, but after I had one I was hooked. This stuff is very good. The only issue I have, is the hot dogs feel a bit overpriced.... More

I was quite excited by the idea for some reason but found the food to be disappointing. There was nothing bad about the actual food and hats off to them for trying something new but I found the flavour combinations just didn't work and I didn't enjoy the food. Also the fries just tasted of MSG which was also unpleasant.

I love finding street food like this unique food cart. Dogs include pork, beef, salmon, turkey, shrimp, and others. Toppings include unique items like seaweed, dried shrimp, or kim chi. Prices are reasonable: $4 to $6. Loved it.

This is the glam dog of hotdogs and the line proves it. You have layers of flavor from the bun, generous-size hotdog, and Japanese dressing. Simple, no frills and delicious. It's a must taste for every downtown Vancouver visit.
