I love this place! The variety of hot dogs is amazing and the taste is extremely fresh. One thing to know about this place is that there may not be enough seats because a lot of college students come here to eat. If you like hot dogs this is a place to try. Don't forget to try some Japanese tea.

Lots of signs showing the owner with various celebs around the place. Outside seating and a few tables inside. The ordering is a 1,2,3 system. Choose your dog, mostly pork and a veggie styles available. Choose your toppings and then your sides. Wait a few minutes and your dog is ready. I found it no better than a good dirty water dog ion the street. That is to say good but not worth the extra cost. Rates "B" by NYC.

EW EW EW- okay thought it would be good to try since the place had a few crowded tables and pics of celebs on the walls. What a mistake! I ordered the tofu dog and it was so soft like it had been sitting in water for over 24 hours. The roll was like the cheapest bread the owner could find. Than there was some toppings which cost extra$ and it was all tasteless. They handed me frozen endmames. They were insulted when I asked them to return it. I got it back steamed with salt and was finally able to eat them. The price was not worth what I paid for them. Don't stop here, continue to GO.

Combining this new review with a review I previously started to write on my blog. I love JapaDog that much that yes, I would blog about it. I wanted to do a post finally on JapaDog though because I feel like I've finally consumed more than half of the menu and can speak accurately of it's deliciousness. JapaDog is a wonderful little hotdog spot on St. Marks that actually first opened shop up out in Vancouver, Canada. The hot dogs come in a variety of meats from kobe beef shipped out from Japan to arabiki pork, chicken, edamame, bratwursts, and veggie dogs. Personally, I don't have a favorite yet. A few months ago, I tried the Yakisoba finally. It's an arabiki sausage covered with soba noodles, which alone and on the side were tasty but just too overwhelming with the pork. My friend got the Okonomi, a Korobuta pork sausage covered with fried bonito flakes. Honestly, this hot dog isn't great if you are either hungover or drunk. It smells like a pile of stale tuna fish was lathered on top of a perfectly good sausage and just ruins your appetite. Bonito has a very strong smokey fishy smell and taste. The flakes are great for adding into dishes on occasion but here it was just a little too much. Now these are pretty much the only 2 sausages that I've ever felt slightly disappointed with. The Terimayo or Spicy Cheese version is essentially the perfect hotdog to try if you're new to the place. Crazier options that were incredibly rich and decadent were the Love Meat and Croquette. Fried potato fritters on top of a pork sausage, how could you go wrong? I know I will be back because I feel like that they occasionally add on new items to the menu and I really must try both the sausage with beef fried rice on top and another of a pork fried cutlet smothered in tonkatsu sauce and cabbage. Also their various seasoned fries are pretty amazing with an accompaniment of wasabi mayo, bbq sauce, and honey mustard. I was reminded of the deliciousness of JapaDog after I went to PKNY a few weekends ago and of course had to step in to grab a dog on the way home. I stuck with a traditional croquette one and was tempted with the fried hot dog buns that come stuffed with ice creams. Yes, desert hotdogs. It's dangerous for me to be on St. Marks street. Oh, how I love JapaDog.

Boo Boo and her brother met me as St. Marks for a food adventure. Our first stop was at Japadog. We always wanted to try so Boo Boo and I agreed to share one before our entrée/ramen at Minca. We got the original, the seaweed and Japanese mayo. And the little bro got donkatsu one. The damage was around $7.50 for both. We were underwhelmed. The hot dog itself was lesser quality. Similar to the ones you can easily get at a cart just dressed up with the seaweed and mayo. It's cool they serve beer. But, I did not partake. They accept CC. We're glad we tried it but we won't be going back. It did not live up to the hype.

After hearing so much about Japadog in Canada, I knew I had to try it. The sound of hot dogs topped with Japanese toppings was enticing, my favorite is the TERIMAYO which is their signature hot dog. They keep it nice and simple with teriyaki sauce, kewpie mayo and seaweed. There's a lot of different toppings including bonito flakes, meat sauce and cheese. At around $5 per hot dog, it rivals other specialty hot dogs around NY (I'm looking at you Crif Dog). They also serve french fries topped with different flavors such as butter & shoyu, powdered seaweed and salt, curry, shichimi & garlic, etc. I tried the butter flavor and it was tasted like really bad movie popcorn butter so I'd advise against that. It comes with different sauces on the side, the most exciting being the wasabi mayo. I was going to give this place a 3.5 stars, but I bumped it up to 4 stars cause they are AWESOME & loves their customers - I happened to come by on their 1 year anniversary and they were giving away free hot dogs for all. I wouldn't come here by myself, but it's unique enough for me to bring visitors here for a hot dog.

I heard about the legend of the Japadog in Vancouver on TV, so when they opened one up in my neighborhood I had to try it. The dogs are a bit on the pricy side but the dogs are damn good, loaded with toppings and a good size. I've tried the Terimayo and the Okonomi. They also have fries with seasoning such as wasabi pepper etc, they were okay. Look out for the Japadog employee in a sandwich board handing out 50% off coupons in front of Peter Cooper Library.
