      Wow. What a waste of just about everything in that dish.

      I think there should be a secret society formed that stakes that place out and if anyone ever orders it someone walks up to them and slaps them with a kielbasa.

        LOL !

        I hate it when I see foods bumped up in price with the old truffle oil-infused, lobster, or caviar trick. I'd love to see a blind taste test done with these foods (against identical but non-infused versions) to see if people can truly taste the difference.

          Give me a good hot dog (costco with hot peppers are not bad) but let me drink the cognac, don't waste it in a dog

            Agreed! Pairing a Costco hot dog with a snifter of fine cognac = low fi decadence. Infusing the dog with that fine cognac = obscene waste.

            Clearly an idiotic gimmick. It may have been actually edible until he drizzled truffle oil on it. Why not just shave real truffles on top instead of this kerosene flavoured stuff? Not a word on what the bratwurst was made of. The meat of Mangalitsa pigs perhaps? If he is aiming at Chinese customers for CNY - he'll need a live lobster tank. No self-respecting Dragon would buy lobster without first seeing it alive.

              OMG! I thought it was dog, as in WOOF WOOF dog!! I have a habit of opening links and not looking at them until later, so I was totally confused when reading the comments, even with the Costco hot dog comment, it didn't register...until I opened the link that you were talking about a hot dog!
