Papaya King ceo Dan Horan is mulling the possibility of opening Papaya King in LA, according to New York Magazine.

    1. That's interesting! Funny, I was just reading an old article on the wall at Zankou chicken that mentioned that they were interested in opening in New York.

      1. I give up - what's Papaya King? Should we care if it's coming to L.A.?

        1. it's a cheap hotdog joint, like pinks but w/ juice.

          1. Playing the Devil's advocate here...think it will do well in LA without the homegrown (and appreciated), funky charm? A good hot dog is a good hot dog but you can't recreate charm and character.

            I know it's about the details/location but I would wonder the same thing if Phillipe's French Dip opened a store in NYC or elsewhere.
