Forget mustard and relish: this hot dog — officially deemed the world’s most expensive by Guinness World Records — comes with toppings like caviar and shaved black truffles.
The Seattle-based Tokyo Dog food truck recently unveiled this beast, which, at a whopping $169, is the priciest hot dog commercially available anywhere on the planet. It’s called the “Juuni Ban,” and here are all the ingredients: smoked cheese bratwurst, butter Teriyaki grilled onions, Maitake mushrooms, Wagyu beef, foie gras, shaved black truffles, caviar and Japanese mayonnaise — all tucked in a Brioche bun.
In order to win the very esteemed World’s Most Expensive Hot Dog title, Tokyo Dog had to sell at least one of these bad boys in a “legitimate business transaction,” according to an article on the Guinness World Records website. The co-creators ended up selling six in one day — and then donated the profits ($1,014 in total) to the Red Cross.
If you want to get your hands on one of these, they’re on sale at Tokyo Dog for special events and require two weeks notice. Or, you could just keep your $169 and buy yourself one hot dog from a street cart every day for the next several months. Either way.
