A $69 hot dog was unveiled in honor of National Hot Dog Day last Friday in New York. Who would pay so much money for a hot dog in these economic times? A tourist in Manhattan.
“It was great. Great flavor,” said tourist Trudy Tant, 49, who played a key role in helping a Manhattan restaurant savor another Guinness World Record.
The NY Daily News reveals:
“The haute dog, prepared by head chef Joe Calderone, comes with truffle oil, a salted pretzel bed, truffle butter, duck foie gras, Dijon mustard, Vidalia onions and ketchup. Tant paid for the foot-long with Guinness World Records official Kimberly Patrick looking on.
The restaurant racked up the priciest dog record right away; there was no previous titleholder, Patrick said.”
The woman says she was happy to be a part of the record-breaking buy.
