Soft opening: Crowds packed the first #MyungrangHotDog in #LosAngeles on Saturday, December 8, 2018, coincidentally which the L.A. City Council proclaimed as #KoreatownDay.
MyungRang is a Korean variant on the #corndog. Notable is the deep-fried panko crust breading.
Beside the more familiar hot dog, other fillings available include #ricecake, #mozzarella or cheddar cheese with sausage.
After the order is placed, there is a condiment bar with ketchup, mustards, chili sauces, and powdered cheese or honey butter to make your MyungRang savory or sweet.
The three hot dogs sampled here, with the exterior appearance and then a cross section of what it looks like inside, are in order:
• #Ricecake. It has a chewy, gummy texture but no flavor on its own apart from the crust. This definitely needs a condiment. The most pleasant tasting condiments are yellow mustard and any of the cheese powders or the honey butter powder.
• Potato hot dog. This is the most flavorful of the three, as the potato cubes give a flavor of eating a hot dog and a handful of fries in the same bite. The sauce condiments go best with these.
• Squid ink. The most noticeable aspect of this item is its grayish coating. Inside it has both mozzarella cheese at the top of the item, and a hot dog in the back with its tip segmented into a floral pattern. The coating does not have a squid flavor, and if you’ve had something like squid ink pasta, you know the dish is intensely squiddy. The mozzarella can get very messy. You could pull it entirely out with one bite. The cheese flavored powders go best with this dog.
Also, avoid the honey mustard. It has an artificial sweetness that has a cough medicine sweetness.
For the soft opening, prices are cut by $1. The grand opening is scheduled for January 2019.
