Japa Dog

Warning: absolutely trivial post ahead. This is a Japa Dog, which I tried and enjoyed in Vancouver. A japa dog is basically a hot dog with Japanese kind of condiments: seaweed, teriyaky sauce, Japanese mayo, soy sauce, plum sauce, etc. I wonder if they have it in Japan or if it is pure Western exoticism. It tastes weird but delicious. I had it only once, but it was memorable. Maybe it is because of the recent riots in Vancouver, but I started thinking about them again and I am in the mood for one. It is one of those little attractions that makes this city different and very Easternised.

Phew. I am relieved that I read on. It looks like the dog is garnished with a locust or grasshopper of sorts. I wonder if pooches ever get nervous when a nearby human says "Hmm I could murder a hotdog"....:-) Awful awful joke I know but I have often wondered why they are call that?
