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.
