Japanese style hot dogs in Ctown: Fei Fan Eatery

gourmaniac | Feb 23, 201209:42 AM

Frustrated by two ordering misses at China King's grand opening (petit opening really), I spotted a sign claiming Japanese style dogs outside the old Chinatown food court site (Beach at Harrison). The first floor is now a mini food court that includes Avana Sushi, which has been there for a while, a egg puff stand, and two new entries: Dumpling King and Fei Fan Eatery, both open a week or two. Dumpling king is inexpensive (12 boiled for $3) but they are just frozen bags of dumplings, which they also sell by the bag. They were giving free samples today (OK). Fei Fan however is intriguing. They offer 11 dogs topped with Asian ingredients (think Japadog in Vancouver) such as seaweed, bonita flakes, kim chi, black sesame, etc and a variety of sausages such as kurobuta pork sausage or beef sausage. I had the soba dog which was a 5 to the pound Asian pork weiner in a better than average roll topped with aonori, red ginger, mayo and teriyaki sauce and ...wait for it... stir fried soba noodles. The dog is not American and the mayo tasted like Kewpie. Also, noodles were freshly stir fried. The dog won't make you forget Speeds but its a nice change of pace for the neighborhood and they remind me of Korean street food. Also, they have okonomiyaki and takoyaki which would be great if they are well done. Now if we can convince Dumpling King to hire two nimble fingered grandmas to make their own.
