New York Hot Dog & Coffee

Mabel and I took my parents to see Carmen last Wednesday. But I needed to find us something quick to eat beforehand.

So I got some wraps from New York Hot Dog & Coffee.

I got kimchi-bulgogi with rice wraps (ssam) which didn't have the hot dog.

They were very good.

I have to admit, I remember seeing this place under construction in 2008 and thinking that there's no way they were going to survive. They seemed really deserted the first several months, but it looks like they've developed a following and are doing pretty well. Also, it probably doesn't hurt that they're part of a big Korean chain.

I think their bulgogi topped hot dog is okay, but it just doesn't do it for me. Something about mixing the two meats doesn't feel right. But I really do like their ssam and am planning on coming back regularly for more.
