Thai or other Asian influence creations Fri, 02/19/10 9:39 AM (permalink)
Hey now...is anyone out there doing any Asian flavors with their dogs. If so, what are you doing? Info and or pics?  Not trying to steal anyone's ideas.....just curious as to what combinations of flavors are being used.

      I bet a Wasabi Mustard blend would be excellent. You could try stir frying a small dice of firm Tofu in a little sesamee oil and soy and top a dog with it. Be careful with sesamee oil it is very strong. You could even add those mini corn things. Hoisin, Katsu, and Oyster sauce are all a little sweet and you could top them with that. Grilled full length scallions so they char with a little lime juice at they end.  Try grinding some whole szechuan peppercorns on a Hot Dog. Siracha is a must and it could be mixed with yellow mustard. Even sauteed carrot slivers might be good with a little hoisin sauce....Russ

              I'm a big sushi/Japanses cuisine enthusiast so most of the ingredients don't scare me. (I ate what translated to "sea mouse" at a "locals only" sushi bar in the Ueno district - not bad) but these don't have any real appeal, at least for me. I tried some asian slaw on a dog but wasn't impressed with my creation and didn't think cutomers would be either. I'd try kimche if I could find the rel stuff but I don't think most Texans are ready for this. New York, LA and I would guess Vancouver are much more international cities that would support this. Neve been to Cleveland so I can't help you there. Anyone else think differently?

                I love how the Japadog menu says "Special Okonomi sauce".  Clearly this is a reference to Okonomiyaki.  This was one of my favorite things in Japan.  You know what sauce they use for Okonomiyaki?  It's Mayo.  That's it.  Some special sauce eh?  It's not special mayo either.  It's just in a squeeze bottle.

                This leads me to believe the MisoMayo is the powdered Miso for Miso soup mixed with mayo.  In fact, mayo seems to be their ingredient for everything other than the Oroshi dog. 

                Of these, I'd be interested in trying the Misomayo and the Terimayo only because I'm curious as to how the combination of teriyaki sauce with mayo, or miso with mayo tastes.

                  Hey PT, how you doing Buddy, I hope all is well. I just got back from Mexico, while there I stopped at a few street carts. One of the carts had fish, shrimp tacos, I ordered both. I was watching them prep the tacos with deep frying the fish is a batter and making my homemade tortilla. When she started to assemble it, I asked what the special sauce she was using. She said mayonaisa, I rolled my eyes. They did have real good condiment to put on the tacos, but I thought they would toss the slaw with something different with a Mexican twist. Looks like mayo is a universal condiment............take care, hope you and the family are doing well...................Bill

                    I think the main difference is that the Mayonnaise you both speak of was made fresh instead of jarred. The taste is totally different from what we eat daily in the USA. Plus the oil used in both regions would be totally different....Russ

                      I can see a tempura and panko dipped dog with Chinese hot mustard, hot sweet chilli sauce or a spritz from a squeeze with ketjap manis. This would not be much harder than breading your own onion rings and is the answer to a corn dog.

                      I used to get a Eggroll on a Stick at the carnivals that came with some redish sweet & sour sauce. I don't see why you could not roll up a dog with fresh sheets and maybe some kind of filling.

                        Hey Billy, the family is fine, but I'm tired of fighting with the wife over the hot dog thing.  She will never let me sell hot dogs instead of being a computer network engineer.  I've refurbished and customized my cart and it's in great shape.  Now I'm just going to have to find someone to buy it.

                          It is Kewpie brand mayonnaise from Japan. Very different from Hellmann's / American mayonnaise.
