The decadent dog, created by Vancouver-based restaurant Dougie Dog, comes soaked in the $2,000 vintage Cognac, fried in truffle oil and topped with Kobe beef, fresh lobster and the restaurant’s signature picante sauce.

The foot-long Bratwurst carries a hefty price tag of $100, with more than 1,000 people so far coughing up the cash to sample the restaurant’s “Dragon Dog”, since it first launched in 2012. 

Although anyone who wants a taste must order 12 hours in advance.

Speaking to New York Daily News, Dougie Luv, President of Dougie Dogs, said: “When I was designing this hot dog I wanted to come up with something super tasty but also high-end.

“But something that still stays true to the traditional identity of the hot dog – that any hot dog lover would enjoy. Just ask the 1090 people who have dared to spend $100 – they have all absolutely loved it.”

The creation was officially inducted into the Guinness World Records this week as the world’s most expensive hot dog.

    I disagree wiith your lead statement completely… Louis 13 is not a “Vintage ” Cognac or a “100 year old” Cognac. It can’t be farther from the truth. My understanding is It does has a few “drops” of 100 year old cognac, but it is a blend of some young and some old cognac in which it has 1200 different blends and the drops of 100 year old are a part of.

    I’ve soaked my hog in Louis XIII before having it sucked long time!

    The Japanese government DOES NOT ALLOW KOBE BEEF TO BE EXPORTED FROM JAPAN. Unless you were in Japan, you have NEVER had Kobe beef. ANY RESTAURANT CLAIMING TO SERVE IT IS LYING AND RIPPING YOU OFF.
