40 Hot Dog Dishes From Around the World

Hannah Keyser

I don't really like hot dogs much, but maybe that's because I live in New York where, judging by this chart by Food Republic, our hot dog selection is pretty uninspired. Perhaps I'd feel differently about these rubbery tubesteaks if I'd first tried one in Brazil or France or Amsterdam (or really anywhere that covers it with cheese or fries). Use the chart to plan your next street food adventure or get inspired to whip up some internationally-flavored franks of your own—or just marvel at how adorable Japan's edible hotdog art is.
