Get a load of this! Korean french-fry covered hot dog!

Am I the only person who thinks this looks yummy? I'd actually be interested in knowing how they make this thing.

It looks like a pogo dog covered with cubes of french fries. I usually put mustard on my pogo dogs, and ketchup on my fries. I don't know what I'd put on this thing....

  1. That has been around for some time. I saw a pic the other day of one wrapped in fish cake and fried -that looked good.

    1. OMG, they sure didn't have those when I was in Seoul in the 80s. I'd weigh even more than I do now. Shic-sa-hap-ni-da! (lets eat)

      1. Moh, I still haven't been, but isn't that what Pick's (on...St. Marc, was it?) sells under the name Kogo?

          I haven't been to Pick's either, but I hear that the Kogo is very similar to this concept. Well, now I know where it comes from! May have to give it a try soon. Convenient, I won't have to book that ticket to Seoul right away!

            The Kogo looks pretty much like what is pictured in the blog entry. It has more batter and less potato, but it's essentially the same thing. You need to get you butt down to Pick's. The service is dismal, but the food is great.

              Yessir right away Sir Captain SnackHappy! If I get my blueberry jam finished quickly, I'll try to head there tomorrow. If not, before the end of the week. The problem is, there is just too much good eats in that neighbourhood these days. I love having too many good choices.

        2. Mustard in the middle and ketchup applied only to the outer ring of tater.


          Your link had me squirming a little (in an almost good way) seeing all those hotdogs layed out- but I wonder if they sort of all taste the same- greasy and salty. (Not that it's a bad thing!)

          1. Crap. Now I have to go to Seoul.

              Well, Davwud, if Janetmweiss is correct and the Kogo is a simliar product, you may only have to come to Montreal. I'm going to have to check the Kogo out soon.

              1. re: moh

                Montreal is very doable from here. Maybe we can have a poutine with it. Or better yet, a poutine hot dog.
