Ketchup and mustard aren t the only condiments you can put on your hot dog. Po Dog, a gourmet Seattle-based hot dog business, puts a whole new twist on one of America s favorite foods.

At Po Dog, you can have Japanese, Chinese, or Mexican cuisine, but all menu items have one common ingredient: hot dog.

This piece of meat that you just think of as a summer [food], can actually be transformed into something so much better, said Laura Olsen, owner of Po Dog.

Olsen said she opened Po Dog because she s loved hot dogs since childhood. She came up with her creative menu through trial-and-error.

Some wacky but tasty combos include the wasabi dog wrapped in a sushi roll and deep fried, the peanut butter dog topped with sliced bananas and peanuts, and the Mac n Cheese Dog nestled beside homemade maceroni and topped with cheddar cheese.
