Solbin's Super Dog

The husband is a big fan of hotdogs. He's always been in search for the perfect chili dog.  When I first read about Solbin's Super Dog from this blog, I told Mike all about it. And since we were planning that time to visit Seoul for a few days, Solbin Superdog was definitely part of the plan.

Solbin's Super Dog is a famous hotdog shack in Apgujeong's Rodeo Street. It is is known to be the best  tasting hotdog in Seoul. It's a popular late night snack hangout of the locals most especially in the Gangnam-gu area and is also said to be frequented by KPOP idols.

When we went to Apgujeong Rodeo Street, we had a difficult time finding it. Maybe because most of the blogs I've read while researching Seoul, have different ways on how to get to Solbin's. I asked a sales clerk in one of the shops in the area if he can give us directions. He said it was in an alley near The Body Shop. He was right. It was easy to spot after that. We were so ecstatic to finally find this infamous hotdog place! It is near The Body Shop and The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf.

We were early. Solbin Superdog operates around 7PM or sometimes even later until around 5AM.

He's now open for business! Yay! It was freezing but we didn't care.

That's Solbin over there. He's a very nice guy. His English is not yet that good but he knows the basics. That guy with the green cap is a regular customer. He was the one who translates our English to Solbin in Korean.

We ordered the one with everything on it instead of just the chili dog. We were so curious! This comprises of bacon-wrapped hotdog grilled in butter with mayo, tomatoes, jalapenos, garlic, sriracha, cheese, sour cream, potato wedges and his secret ingredient.

I know this is totally un-healthy. But, when was the last time you really had an outrageously delicious hotdog? It was a real treat to experience Solbin's Superdog. That's hotdog the Gangnam way.
