Dog Dog Japon was the perfect quick and casual joint to grab a bite to eat before heading off to catch a movie. Located in the building that also houses fellow Japanese cheap eat, Mappen, it's basically a hole in the wall with various kinds of Japanese style hot dogs.
It's not too busy early on in the night, and whilst we order at the counter and pay, several of the seats are taken up by Mappen customers. Dog Dog Japon, along with Mappen and Oiden are run by the same group, hence the table sharing.
Hot dog menu and counter
Okonomiyaki hot dog
There are the stock standard hot dog offerings and some that are downright strange. I opt for somewhere inbetween, with a okonomiyaki inspired hot dog.
Hamburg hot dog
Japanese style hamburger patty in a hot dog version
Chips with wasabi mayo
The wasabi mayo really packed a punch, as it was heavy on the wasabi. Good for clearing the nasal passages, though I find myself scraping it off halfway through as it is too much.
Overall, a good place to grab a cheap and speedy snack, but I found the hot dogs on the strange side - I much prefer the traditional version.
