Myungrang Hot Dog already serves its Korean street food in Duluth, Georgia, and has long lines of fans at L.A.’s California Market. Now it hopes to generate a cult food fervor in Las Vegas.
Located in suite 101 on the ground floor of Shanghai Plaza, the small Spring Mountain Road outpost is currently serving during shortened shifts before the counter-service restaurant begins its regular daily hours on Aug. 24.
The brief menu offers less than a dozen items, such as the Korean spin on a corn-dog-on-a-stick served as the $1.99 original, the $2.99 sausage and mozzarella dubbed the best, a rice cake version, and a $2.99 upgrade made with beef sausage. Two unusual options include a squid ink batter rendition and a dog wrapped in potato cubes.
Five different sauces and three seasonings are provided with a quick guide to condiment combinations posted to help customers prepare the No. 2 combo of sweet chili, mustard cheese, ketchup, and Parmesan sauces.
Equally compact is its beverage menu, which offers regular, pink, and strawberry lemonade, or a traditional Korean sweet rice drink.
Myungrang Hot Dog, 4284 Spring Mountain Road, # 101, 725-214-7286. Open daily from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
