Bulgogi Hot Dog-Seoul Food?

So even though I'm still pissed about losing Bruno Bakery (don't even mention Zito's or I'll start to cry), I'm waiting for this New York Hot Dog and Coffee place to open on Bleecker that serves ...wait for it...bulgogi hot dogs and other Korean/American mutants!. Now if you are a fan of chili dogs then why not bulgogi dogs? Sort of a cross between a steak and a hot dog sandwich. Sounds good to me. I'm scouting for the opening. Now that's what I call Seoul Food.

        Yeah but this is a hot dog topped with bulgogi! Bleecker and Leroy

          I don't know if that guy is still around. I've spent many a Saturday night searching for him in vain.

              Please post the cross streets for this stand. I'm in the UES but will come down for it. Is he only around at night? Does he have tempura skewers also?

                Southeast corner of Stanton and Ludlow Streets, Lower East Side
                Hours: Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, after 11 pm

                BUT I'm fairly certain he's been MIA for some time.

                  This is possibly the saddest news I've seen this month. Much more tragic than Will Smith killing his puppy in that zombie movie. If anyone knows of any other Seoul Food carts, please post.

            2. It is definitely in the tradition of great Seoul Food. The last time I was there - perusing and sampling various street stalls - I spied a bizarre variation of a corn dog, only with the hot dog covered on all sides with french fries. Kind of looked like Sideshow Bob on a stick.

              We could definitely use some more Korean street food in NYC.

                There was a bulgogi hotdog stand at the street fair near South Street Seaport on July 4th. They were sold out and packing up already so i didn't get to sample any. The Korean girl told me they'd be at the street fair the next day On 33rd and 6th ave, or something like that...I didn't make it the next day, but it seems that they can be found at street fairs, so you might already have part of your wish come true.

                1. re: HLing

                  I saw this stand at a street fair on 6th Ave in Midtown on July 5 I think it was. There were two girls shouting "Bulgogi hot dogs! Bulgogi hot dogs!" It was a rainy day, so it was a pretty sparse street fair and there were no takers when I walked by. I'd just had lunch, so I wasn't hungry, but I looked, and they just looked like bulgogi on a hot dog bun.

              2. oh my god, bruno bakery closed down?? the one on laguardia?

                  He might mean the location that used to be on Bleecker, which I think closed last year.
