“Really unique and fun street food experience!”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

Went to Japadog having never heard of it being from Pittsburgh, PA, but my friend who is originally from Vancouver brought me there. It had a line, but it moved quickly and that was half the fun. They were out of the one I wanted, but I ate a traditional Japadog instead, very interesting combination of flavors. It was all fun and I would recommend to anyone going to Vancouver! I had one at the Richmond location, too!

“Over-hyped”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

This is just a Japanesque hot dog stand. I stopped here to try a dog, after reading so much about it. We ordered the #3, which was bratwurst with radish, green onions, and soy sauce. I would have preferred another type of sauce, the soy sauce made it too salty for my taste. To me Japadog was worth a try, but not worth a repeat. There are plenty of other great places to eat in Vancouver.

“Worth it if there is no queue”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

Walked past the stand quite by accident. Had heard about this so thought I would try it out. Had a tasty Japaneses style hotdog with cabbage, seaweed and wasabi mayo. Wasn't that expensive and was quite tasty. Maybe a tad overhyped but worth a try if there is no queue ... Literally street food so manag your expectations

Reviewed June 19, 2013

Walk by and check out the fun menu but don't bother to order. They really do have some fun selections, however it's just hot dogs with sweet mayonnaise on them and an interesting name.

“Oh-Em-Gee!!”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

An amazing hot dog experience! I wanted to try them all! We ended up sharing the Okonomi, a Kurobuta pork sausage, cabbage, Japanese mayo, and special sauce. Truly a must-do when in Vancouver but go with an empty stomach and try a few.
