Friends: If you are reading the new issue, you will see that there is a great deal of street sausage in it. But we know that there is a wonderment of meat on the street that’s never made it near our pie holes. So there is a call in this issue to report such omissions to sausage boss @ lky.ph. Matt Cohn, a worldly and dutiful reader, sent in this photo and note about a FRENCH FRY-ENCASED HOT DOG:
Dear Sausage Boss,
The light tap-tap of poppy seeds falling from my hot dog bun onto the paper wrapper below and the ketchup dispenser’s flatulence are the soundtrack to an indelible, edible pastime. There I was, naively eating a hot dog and fries separately, taking the time to dip each fry into a small paper thimble.
The “Kamja (potato) Dog” is a practical, portable homage to the American classic, and it raised some questions. Why had I wasted all that time and effort eating them separately? Does gravity work differently in Seoul? Sadly, I did not sample the Kamja Dog, so I can only infer that encased meat was encased in the fries.
