Bacon Wrapped Hot Dog Event – Behold, the “Felly Dog”!

May 5, 2010

Although this hot dog eating extravaganza was almost a month and a half ago, this food porn is just too good to leave sitting on a hard drive somewhere. If you missed the event, don’t fear! There’s another one coming up later this month – on May 22nd, to be exact – so plan ahead! If it’s anything like this last one, it’ll be a blast.

———-

For those who don’t know, I used to be an avid yelper. I used to go to their events (both official and unofficial) all the time and meet new people, many of whom I now consider close friends. However, due to personal scheduling issues and changes in Yelp’s demographics, I haven’t been going to very many events recently. Javier J.‘s Bacon Wrapped Hot Dog event was my first event back in 2010.

Javier might be the most awesome event planner ever. Not only does the guy provide hundreds of free bacon wrapped hot dogs to almost fifty hungry yelpers but he goes all out on the condiments, bringing both traditional and non-traditional toppings. Forget just plain ketchup, mustard and relish – inspired by Dogzilla’s Japanese hot dogs, Javier packed yakisoba noodles, nori flakes, avocados and wasabi mayo. He didn’t just stop there though – he went even deeper into Asian fusion territory, bringing French baguettes and pickled vegetables for a “bun mi” and kimchi pickled radishes for a Korean dog.

I ate two of these hot dogs – one Japanese inspired and one Vietnamese inspired – but was still looking for that perfect combination. It was then I concocted the ultimate Asian-fusion loaded hot dog: the “Felly Dog”.

(Behold! The “Felly Dog”)

The Felly Dog consists of a veggie dog (yes, that’s right – a vegetarian hot dog) wrapped in bacon (why wrap vegetarian meat in real pork? why not?), topped with wasabi mayo, nori flakes, pickled carrots, avocado, kimchi radishes, with yakisoba noodles. I thought it was pretty tasty (but at that point, I was giddy off bacon wrapped hot dogs so I can’t guarantee that it’ll taste as good for you).

By the end of Javier’s event, I had eaten three whole hot dogs, two beers, two cans of soda, a couple vegan brownies and an individual sized bag of chips all by myself. (Not too shabby, if I say so myself!)

This was a great event.
