The Waffle Dog Takes NYC at Kings of Kobe
I have some serious noms for you on the blog today and today's feature does not disappoint! I'm talking about Kings of Kobe, Hell's Kitchen spot for hot dogs and home of the drumroll.... waffle dog! Say what?!?! After seeing this delicious delight featured on The Chew, I knew I had to head down to the spot and check them out over the weekend. After Chris and I checked out the menu online (with our mouths watering) we realized we not only had to try the waffle dog but also about everything else on the menu. So for the next 3 days Chris and I planned out the different combos of exactly we were going to order. #SoSerious
Finally the weekend had arrived and it was GO time! We ordered a total feast, including two of their hot dogs -- the Manhattanite and Sweet Munchies. As you can see these aren't just any dogs either.. The Manhattanite is topped with caramelized apples, frisee, shaved cheddar, wasabi aioli and the Sweet Munchies has cola soaked caramelized onions and cream cheese -- getting a little of that Seattle flavor! Not only were these totally unique, but the hot dogs are dang good just on their own.
Because I'm also 28 going on 6 we definitely had to order a side of their mac and cheese balls, which were delicious. Even more awesome? They came with garlic aioli. My cheesy and garlic dreams have combined! You know me too.. I'm all about awesome condiments that take foods to the next level.
And then... without further ado... there was.... the waffle dog! Which can we just talk about what a genius idea this is? After day-dreaming about this little treat all week it 100% lived up to all of my food dreams. To make this genius creation even better it comes with a spicy maple syrup dip. Holy noms!!! Guys, if you live in, around or anywhere near NYC, you need to get your butt over to Kings of Kobe and try their deliciousness for yourself!
