Pop It

Before trying out Loooop in Tai Hang, I was surprised to find a somewhat fancy hot dog joint in the area. It’s very rare that you would find a restaurant that mainly serves hot dogs in Hong Kong because it’s mostly seen as a snack or street food. Hot dogs are mostly sold at amusement parks as a cheap and filling eat but Pop It clearly boosted their hot dog game.

As far as upscale fast food goes, you’ll find a wide range of different toppings and types of hot dogs at Pop it. One big pro side of Pop It is that all of their dogs are 100% USA Kosher beef. Opened by LA-based owners, I’m so glad that they chose to bring in Kosher dogs to Hong Kong because finding Kosher meat in Hong Kong is no easy task. For all of you pig lovers, get your hot dogs elsewhere.

Texas Dog

Slow roasted pulled pork, homemade BBQ sauce and coleslaw dumped on top of a hotdog. This creation basically screams ‘Murica!

Their coleslaw was very creamy and very heavy. Below that was a mountain of pulled pork just sitting above a massive beef dog. Needless to say, this was extremely satisfying and stuffing.

Their hot dogs had a really good bounce texture but a bit too salty at times.

Dirty Dog

I wouldn’t call this a dirty dog because this had a lot of vegetables than most of their other items on the menu. This hot dog was topped up with bacon, avocado, green peppers, onions, ketchup and mustard.

The avocado definitely gave the hot dog a healthier feel with a buttery and creamy texture to it. Of course, after the bacon, you eventually reach this overwhelming sense of guiltless pleasure from the dog.

I prefer the Dirty Dog over the Texas Dog just because the green peppers and onions gave it a refreshing taste other than a mouthful of heavy cole slaw. Either way, they are both good.
