Holy Dog


Holy Dog  –  Western Addition


Modern hot dog joint, located at 1552 Fillmore Street. I didn’t know what to expect when walking into this small establishment. My co-worker had suggested that it was a great place to obtain some Kimchi hot dogs. I wasn’t exactly sure what Kimchi was, but I was starved and more than willing to find out! For those of you who also don’t know what Kimchi is, it’s spicy pickled cabbage and just so happens to be the national dish of Korea.

We all ordered our Kimchi dogs and decided to eat them upstairs, because there really wasn’t too much room to do so on the bottom floor.  On the second floor there’s ample seating, a pretty cool mural (pictured right), and an open window to the bottom of the restaurant. I have to say it was pretty weirdly designed restaurant.

But, as I picked it up to take a bite, I realized that it wasn’t actually mustard, but rather something more along the lines of nacho cheese. It served as a good combo to the Kimchi, which has a little bit of spiciness to it in addition to tasting pickled. The dog itself seemed pretty standard albeit a tad salty, but the topping really made it worth the $6.

Holy dog sports a a fair amount of beers at a really cheap price. I didn’t get to partake in their awesome deals like the $1.50 Sapporo everyday, because I had other obligations. Next time I’m in the area, I’ll definitely be stopping by for a dog and a beer.

    Hey Joe, thanks for visiting our blog. I am constantly surprised by what they pair kimchi with these days…in Seoul, there’s a big Mexican-Korean fusion thing happening. I haven’t seen kimchi with hotdogs here yet though!! 🙂
