How do you like your hot dog? Ketchup? Mustard? Relish? Molé sauce? At Serendipity 3 on New York City’s fashionable Upper East Side, they like it expensive! A $69 hot dog if you can believe it! The foot long haute dog is popular, especially with the ladies!
The $69 hot dog, or ‘haute dog’ for you connoisseurs, comes with the works. First, that’s no ordinary white-bread bun, but one made from pretzel dough, salted of course. Generously buttered with white truffle butter I might add. Getting hungry yet, girls?
Let us add a medallion of duck fois gras with black truffles. The dog itself is made from high-grade beef grilled with truffle oil. Other condiments available include black truffle dijon mustard, caramelized vidalia onions and heirloom tomato ketchup. Restaurant owner Stephen Bruce and top chef Joe Calderone have done it again with this food sensation. It has set a new Guinness Worlds record as the world’s most expensive hot dog. The restaurant already holds the title for the world’s most expensive ice cream sundae, a mere $1,000 a dish!
Which may explain why the $69 hot dog is a big winner with the ladies. If you are chump enough to buy one for the woman in your life, then she knows she can have whatever she wants. The restaurant rolled this delight out yesterday to celebrate National Hot Dog Day.
