$100 Cognac-Infused Bratwurst Takes Haute Hot Dogs To New Heights

It’s a wacky world of wieners out there in the restaurant business, and a new “haute dog” on the scene in Vancouver is shoving aside other fancy contenders to claim the title of most expensive hot dog. Diners can dig into a Dragon Dog at DougieDog Hot Dogs for just $100.

But wait! There’s more — the footlong sausage is made with a bratwurst “infused with century-old Louis the 13th cognac, which costs more than $2,000 a bottle,” says the Canadian Press, via the Huffington Post.

Other high-falutin’ ingredients: Kobe beef seared in olive and truffle oil, fresh lobster and a secret picante sauce. Perhaps it’s a sauce made of edible diamonds! One can only hope, at that price.

DougieDog says their meaty menu item is the first in the world to sell for three figures, out-pricing the current Guinness Record holder, a $69 dog at Serendipity restaurant in New York.
