Situated in West Kowloon Cultural District and open every day, this pet-friendly cafe features hotdogs named after different dog breeds such as poodle, husky, and chihuahua. For $68 to $78, enjoy toppings such as guacamole or truffle mayonnaise on a charcoal bun and remember to consider adding a side dish ($28) of either truffle, garlic or salted-egg yolk fries.

If you’re feeling like something a little healthier, salad is an option too. If you feel like you need more of a variety, their menu allows you to create your own hot dog by choosing the bun and the sausage – which includes the classic frankfurter and four others including an omnipork sausage and topping ($78). Available for takeaway and delivery on online platforms, these buns are a movie night-in essential. While you’re at it, you can even order some ice-cream for your puppy!
