So This Is What A $169 Hot Dog Looks Like

For what people are paying, this'd better be good.

If you thought eating cat poop coffee was expensive, just wait until you try this hot dog.

Officially certified by Guinness World Records as the world's most expensive commercially available hot dog, this delicious dog will cost you a cool $169. We've seen expensive hot dogs before, but nothing like this.


Straight out of a Seattle food truck called Tokyo Dog, the "Juuni Ban" hot dog contains a lot of high class ingredients. Guinness World Records has the complete list of ingredients, and it's incredible: smoked cheese bratwurst, butter teriyaki grilled onions, maitake mushrooms, wagyu beef, foie gras, shaved black truffles, caviar and Japanese mayonnaise, all served up in a brioche bun.

Five lucky patrons bought the Juuni Ban on the day of its arrival, bringing in $1,014 in total for Tokyo Dog's charity of choice, the Red Cross. According to Yahoo, the execution of the hot dog was over a year in the making and will stay on Tokyo Dog's menu. Though if you want to order a Juuni Ban yourself, you'll have to order two weeks in advance.

For what people are paying, this'd BETTER be good.
