Oki Dog...

  • 4

I remember going to the one on Pico when I FIRST moved to LA, and eating some collasal, gargantuan grease pit of a sandwich (can't remember the name of it)...it was AWESOME....Driving down Fairfax the other day, i saw an Oki Dog (Fairfax and Melrose area)..
How is that Oki Dog?
And what' the name of that Sandwich, and what was in it???

  1. Are you sure it wasn't a burrito, and not a sandwich? The eponymous Oki Dog is a hot dog rolled in pastrami, married to some kim chee and encased in an tortilla, making for quite a gut bomb. Their fries used to be great, fried in month-old pastrami leavings, I'm sure.

    1. mmmm... you just took me back to junior and senior high!!!! (yes, I went to Fairfax!)
      They had the Oki Dog. It's more of a burrito than anything else. It's a giant tortilla with 2 hot dogs (because 1 is just not enough!) pastrami, chili, mustard and I think pickles. All wrapped up into a giant pillow of goodness..... Make sure to take your cholestral meds

      1. Actually they do have Greasy Pastrami & Teriyaki Steak sandwiches

        1. Tried one in 1984 - I'm still digesting it...
