You'll have spotted the lunchtime line-ups at the Japadog hotdog stands around town, but a storefront was also opened in 2010 by the celebrated, ever-genki Japanese expats. The menu is almost the same here – think turkey smokies with miso sauce and bratwursts with onion, daikon and soy – but there are also naughty seasoned fries (try the wasabi version).

The tiny tables are usually taken, but the take-out window does a roaring trade. And this is the only location where you can get the perfect dessert: ice-cream in a deep-fried hotdog bun.
