The Verdict

If you want to get noticed in the ‘dog scene, slapping an ominous snag in a bun simply won’t cut it. Hotdog Hustle, clearly aware of this, has been paving the way in the space since 2017 with their loaded hotdogs.

At the core of the menu is a base that consists of a smoked, grilled Australian beef sausage along with a fluffy brioche bun. From that point, you’re free to explore the various toppings inspired by LA and Asian style street dogs.

Front and centre is The Hustler, stacked with caramelised onion, kewpie and the in-house Hustler mayo, nori, fresh shallots and furikake—which is that sweet but savoury seasoning you’ll find sprinkled atop many Japanese dishes and rice. 

The adventurist types are appeased with a spicy number known as the Furi, where you’ll find shichimi peppers, jalapenos, chilli flakes and shredded chilli within and on top of your dog.

The money-shot, however, is the Bulgogi Cheesesteak, in which the name says it all. This one’s jammed with Bulgogi steak, three types of cheeses, some spring onion for balance and a slathering of that Hustler mayo. 

Should you still have space, the fries with Japanese slaw is a side worthy of even the most ferocious of appetites. 

Hotdog Hustle is currently open for takeaway and available on your preferred delivery partner app.
