$19.00 Kobe Beef Hot Dog - Sun, 05/18/03 8:44 AM

There is a place in Manhatten called the Old Homestead which serves the famous Kobe Beef. Recently they began serving a $41.00 Kobe Beef Hamburger. Today on the local news, they did a piece on this place. Now they serve a $19.00 Kobe Beef hot dog. A butcher told me that using really good meat like prime would make a mushy hot dog. He said that the spice mix is more important than the beef used. I can't see paying $19.00 for a hot dog, but I may have to for the sake of research.

John,
I'm afraid I would read about it but not try it!! That's like buying a $5.00 gallon of gas to see if your car runs better on it! What if you decide you like the big-buck dogs???There goes the kids college fund !

We only go around once in life, John Fox. While it may seem ridiculous, I'd try both the hamburger and the hot dog. You'd probably just waste the money on beer, anyway. (Not that buying beer is a waste of money.)

I'd do the hamburg because with beef like that you want it rare. It would be wierd trying to order a rare hot dog.

In roaming around high-end food emporia on the 'net I've run into something called, approximately, Kobestyle Beef. It is beef from whatever breed is used for the original product, but raised in this country and allegedly fed and pampered identically to the original. Makes one wonder: "emperor's new clothes" or "the sizzle rather than the steak," or both?

Geez, I wonder what kind of special eyeballs and a**holes they use in the preparation of those hot dogs!

Two hot dogs, an onion ring, and a diet coke at Rutt's Hut cost us $7.44 the other day...and Kobe ain't gonna top that meal, even for $100!!!!

That seems to against all grain to have to pay that much for a hot dog, especially if it isn't a Vienna.

I dunno -- I think half the mystique of a hot dog is the blend of meats and spices. I think Kobe beef would be wasted on it. They have the $40+ hamburger down in LoDo in Denver too. I might try it....once.

Hey John;

I enjoy reading your posts on Hot Dogs, should you try the Kobe Beef Hot Dog and write a review I'd gladly contribute to offset the bill......
And like most others here I doubt that I would try one myself.

take care
Don
