SEATTLE — Got a big appetite and a big wallet? A Seattle food truck is now offering the world’s most expensive hot dog. In fact, the Guinness Book of World Records has verified it.
The Tokyo Dog food truck’s “Juuni Ban” has a retail price of $169. It contains smoked cheese bratwurst, butter Teriyaki grilled onions, Maitake mushrooms, Wagyu beef, foie gras, shaved black truffles, caviar and Japanese mayonnaise, all encased in a brioche bun.
To meet the requirements for a world record, at least one hot dog had to be sold in a legitimate business transaction. The co-owners sold six of them in one day, raising more than $1,000. Those proceeds were donated to the American Red Cross. The hot dogs are no longer sold on-demand, but can be prepared with two weeks advance notice.
