$100 Hotdog?!?!?

The Dougie Dog "Dragon Dog"

The Dougie Dog “Dragon Dog”

I could be considered a hotdog girl. There is nothing quite like a BBQ-ed hotdog on a hot summer day or a concession dog while you are taking a break at the ball field, but recently I saw a news article about a very special hotdog……… one that cost over $100!

Dougie Dog, a Vancouver eatery all about hotdogs has what they call a gourmet hotdog. This amazing hotdog (or so it better be for over $100) is described as “no ballpark tube steak. It contains Bratwurst, Kobe beef, truffle oil, a dribble of $2,000 cognac and some Atlantic lobster.”

So, to be fair, the ‘gourmet’ hotdog has some impressive ingredients – kobe beef in a hotdog? Truffle oil? LOBSTER?! I’ve got to admit, I’m still not convinced. To me it sounds like a mish-mash of expensive ingredients trying to fit into the category of a loved favourite, but let’s be serious, a hotdog is just not meant to be gourmet!

With that said, the next time I am in Vancouver I will stop by Dougie Dog and see with my own little eyes what this ‘gourmet’ dog is all about. From afar though, it doesn’t sound too exciting and to be quite frank, no pun intended, I’m not sure I could stomach the bill to try this hotdog out….



From Victoria, British Columbia

Kristy was born in the interior of British Columbia, but soon after moved to beautiful Victoria. She considers herself to be an “island” girl and hasn’t (and likely won’t) leave the city she grew up in. After graduating high school Kristy attended Camosun College and then went onto the University of Victoria, earning an Associates Degree and Bachelor of Arts along the way. She now works for a real estate development company in Victoria’s suburbia.

With her spare time Kristy enjoys seeing friends and family, camping, being outside, as well as fulfilling her creative needs by painting, cooking and dabbling here and there with interior design. She also takes time to give back to the community by organizing events/projects that benefit different charities and organizations in her community. As a part of giving back to the community, Kristy volunteers with an agency in Victoria, providing emotional support to those who have been traumatized/victimized. One of her biggest passions is food – whether it be cooking it, eating it, smelling it or imagining it. She chooses to live a more low-carb type of lifestyle and so finding and experimenting with foods that have a lower carbohydrate content is what really gets her excited. With that said though, she does take advantage of what she likes to call, “cheat days”, where she eats whatever carb-filled food she likes. (Everyone needs cheat days…)
