Korea is in the NYC Hot Dog field

Korea has entered the New York City hot-dog market with an outlet on Bleeker Street in the heart of Greenwich Village:

I passed it yesterday, but was in my car and couldn't stop. It took me a while to find references on the 'net, but I got the one above and this one from the Village Voice:

Here's the link to the parent organization (but it's not translated):

It's a well-lit modern-looking place. I'll try it, but will search the menu for just the right dog.

    Scroll up on the above referenced Serious Eats link to see pictures and read the article. Or go here: http://newyork.seriouseats.com/2008/09/bulgogi-dogs-for-everyone-new-york-hotdog-and-coffee-hot-dogs-korean-west-village-nyc.html

    The dog served is a skinless Sabrett. I don't know how it is prepared, but it doesn't appear to be grilled unless it's on a roller grill. It's topped with bulgogi, which is a type of Korean barbecued beef. I've heard it described as beef with a sort of garlicky soy sauce. I'm sure that I wouldn't like this on a hot dog but suspect that there are plenty that do since this place seems to be getting good reviews.
