The Japadog stand is a local favorite in Vancouver and a good, unique place for budget-minded eaters. Anthony Bourdain from No Reservations had a japadog here as well as other celebrities (their pictures are posted on the food stand). It looks strange but the mix of seaweed, mayonnaise, and sausage makes it taste oddly delicious.Recommended for:

According to their website, each Japa Dog location has a different menu. At this particular location, I ordered the Kurobuta [Berkshire] Terimayo aka #1 – Kurobuta Pork topped with Japanese Mayo, Teriyaki sauce, and Seaweed. The combination of dry and wet flavors exploded in my mouth and left me smiling. In terms of the dog itself, you could tell it was made from a different meat, but since it’s all mushed up in dog form, it wasn’t what won us over. The toppings won us over. More foods should be topped with seaweed, and Japanese mayo > American mayo any day.
