JapaDog May Be Coming to L.A.!

If you've ever enjoyed them in Vancouver (as I have), you'll be happy to know the good people at JapaDog are potentially setting their sights on a new market: Los Angeles!

  1. Did a quick search for JapaDog in Chow and didn't see too much discussion on this for Los Angeles. Has anyone tried it? I too had me some in Vancouver and I thought it was pretty damn good.

        I had it for the first time a few months ago. Thought it was pretty good. Didn't blow my mind, but certainly would not hesitate to get another one if I happened to see the truck.
        The concept seems easy to replicate, so I would imagine if you loved it in Vancouver, you would probably love it here

            Can you describe a JapaDog, and what it tastes like? Do they offer different kinds?

                  lots of varieties to keep you coming back too...

        1. They haven't been posting updates since last week. Hope everything is ok.

            From their Website:
            We will be closed from Sep 14 to 21 at all locations. Sorry for the inconvenience.

              I wonder what the break is about...was hoping to go get one this week. Maybe they're all taking a synchronized vacation.

          2. Japadog is back roaming the streets of LA and I have seen things on the inter webs which suggest that they are opening a brick and mortar somewhere on the Santa Monica Pier.

              I found their Twitter post funny (and cute)...but who cares about spelling if the chow is good. lol

              "We have big news!! We will be opening soon in Santa monica Pier, Los Angels!!!!!!!"

                I hope the JapaDog owners have umbrellas, 'cuz it's gonna be rainin' money!!!

                  Saw them at third and grand today downtown while driving by. There was a line.
