Asian-style hotdogs at Doggy-Style in Alameda

I stopped by Doggy-Style Hot Dogs in Alameda today and was excited to see a selection of four different Asian style hotdogs. It's good to see them embrace a good idea rather than toy with a single item on a menu. I tried the Umai and the Doggyzilla today, both of which were as good looking in person as they are on their visual menu: http://www.doggy-stylehotdogs.com/men...

The buns have sesame seeds and are ideal for hot dogs and sausages. They're not too crusty and not too sweet. The Umai (beef hotdog w/ Japanese mayo, teriyaki sauce, pickled radish, and seaweed) was a great sandwich overall. I liked the Doggyzilla's pieces (asian slaw, wasabi mayo, teriyaki sauce, and seaweed), and thought the brat was fantastic, but the sandwich didn't come together as a whole. My problem dealt with the position of the pieces in the sandwich, so I think I might ask them to slice the brat in half next time. They have two more Asian style sandwiches and several non-Asian specialties as well.

Any other Asian style sausage sandwiches around? I know a few ... 4505 Meats at the Ferry Building makes great use of kimchi and chicharrones in their zilla style hot dogs, Telegraph in Oakland does a banh-mi style sausage sandwich (hands down, I prefer a traditional banh mi to this), and I've read about the Brass Knuckle cart serving a hot dog with sriracha and bonito flakes. As far as I can tell, all these places use a Western hot dog with Asian ingredients, but I'd love to see someone do something with a Lao style sausage.
