You can get a $250 'Hot Dog' for 4th of July
Hot dogs are yet another symbol of America, just as Hollywood, hamburgers and Coca Cola. So what would be the best way to celebrate the 4th of July, one of the most important public holidays in the USA, if not by eating some tasty hot dog?
But if you want to really celebrate, do it with some style and splendor, like for example – with a $250 hot dog. At least this is what Marky's Caviar, the newly opened Madison Avenue caviar bar, says.
Their $250 hot dog is actually not that much a hot dog anymore. It's just something that resembles it only with its shape, as the rest of its ingredients are totally different. Any self- respecting street hot dog seller wouldn't actually call it as a hot dog, but as something "bizarre."
So what actually consists of that luxury and decadent meal for people with too much money to spend?
It's actually not even made with pork or beef like all hot dogs are. Its main ingredients are "Alaskan King crab merus on a brioche roll topped with beluga caviar, pickled mustard and sour cream," like Marky's Caviar said in its press release. But that's the light version, that costs "only" 45 USD. There is also an option to upgrade it to the Platinum level, adding Black Truffle Ketchup and an extra ounce of caviar. And this version would set you up for $250.
Mark Zaslavsky, co-founder of Marky's Caviar says that it's "still the bargain, as the full ounce of Beluga di Venezia caviar alone, would typically run you $275".
Somehow we are not convinced yet, and we think that we will stick to our favorite and classic $5 hot dogs, available on every corner of NYC streets.
