Get excited Hamilton, we are getting a Korean Hot Dog Restaurant. Chung Chun Rice Hot Dog is coming to Westdale in the near future! (UPDATE: Officially opening June 30, 2021)
Chung Chun Rice Hot Dog was established in 2019 and has a few locations in Canada (including North York, Toronto, Vancouver, and Scarborough). They also have locations worldwide too! Chung Chun specializes “in popular Korean street food – Korean rice dog, that will include rice flour batter wrapped hot dogs, spicy sausages, all mozzarella rice dog and an option that’s half hot dog and half mozzarella cheese. The batter-dipped sticks are coated with optional toppings, from diced potato to breadcrumbs, and freshly fried on the spot.”
Think of a Korean version of our beloved corndog! Some of the menu items included:
Mozzarella cheese Hotdog – Combo of Sausage with Mozzarella Cheese
Ramen chips Hotdog – A Unique crispy Fried Ramen Hotdog
Double cheese Hotdog – A hotdog with mozzarella & Cheddar cheese
I just named a few of their unique creations. You can see their full menu here.
So what is so special about their hot dogs you ask? “The feature of Chungchun Hotdog is sticky rice in dough that fermented for 120 minute every morning. Which gives it a more chewy and crispy taste.”
