Wassup Dog – The Best Dog from our East Perth and Fremantle Cafe Restaurants
The original can sometimes be referred to as the best and in this case it is hard to argue. There is a hot dog that exists that is such a magnificent combination of delicious ingredients that it can only be described so simply.
Two years ago, I was drunk and listening to music at Mojo’s, at some point my girlfriend persuaded me to try this new hot dog cart.
I had mixed feelings until we had talked to the man behind the hotplate and he described the process of making the Best Dog.
From then the Best Dog has been continually improved, especially with the addition of our favourite ingredient, the home made garlic mayonnaise.
Wassup Dog owner Jules Aknin said that one day he was talking to his Dad in France on the phone and he reminded him that “if you want to call it the best, it has to be the best”.
Wassup Dog follows the example set in France by the family.
The onions are sautéed perfectly and the slow cooked capsicum and corn provide a crisp savoury sweetness to the hot dog. The first bite is shockingly good, mayonnaise might drip everywhere but everybody looks good eating a hot dog.
The beef sausage is butterflied and grilled with 3 years of experience and together with the fluffy bread and garlic mayonnaise it’s going to make you just as satisfied as a quokka in honey.
When it’s all together in front of you, you can taste that it’s the best. You can grab one in store for $13 with chips and home made aioli from either our East Perth restaurant or Fremantle Restaurant (plus other options from our restaurant or takeaway menu).
Do not forget we also do great coffee so if you are looking for an East Perth cafe or Fremantle cafe you know where to find us.
