Tried out hapadog, a japanese hotdog franchise, a few days ago. It’s really a teeny tiny space. 2 tables of 4, and a 6-seater facing the wall. I asked the server which one was their most popular hotdog. She said the hapadog, so I tried that.
|The hapadog 175 php
topped with seaweed, caramelized onions, japanese or wasabi mayo
|I wonder if it’s as good as it looks on their menu! ;P|
I always tend to rush when ordering. It was only when ate pointed out to me their tuesday half-price special that I noticed the Tempuradog. Sigh… so guess what. I got that too! I couldn’t let a good deal pass, right??? :P
|Temp-tation or Tempura Dog 175 php (but slashed down 50% every tuesday!)|
I’m a sucker for burgers & hotdogs. But my kids are the full meal type (read: kanin/noodles!). So instead of hotdogs, they got these instead…
|hapa-nese nachos 95 php
Too bad ate didn’t enjoy the wasabi/seaweed twist. The 2 were kinda ok with it.
|Karaage (japanese fried chicken) 95 php|
|Poppukondoggu (tempura fried sausage) 55 php|
|The 6-seater counter we squeezed ourselves into! ;))|
|Chicken Donburi 175 php|
|Beef Donburi 195|
I got a little confused when our bill came though, coz it came in this dimsum basket. Ermmm, aren’t dimsum of chinese origin? ;))
It’s refreshing to try out new restos from time to time. Diversity & variety is good -and I can say I liked what I had. But even with my torrid love affair with hotdogs & anything japanese, I think we’ll stick to smokey’s next time! :)
