Ssong’s HotDog Delivers Korean Flavor

We thought years of cookouts and high school sporting events taught us everything there was to know about hot dogs, but Ssong’s new Overland Park café (10308 Metcalf Ave.) proves that’s not the case. What the popular Korean hot dog franchise’s first KC outpost serves up will actually look more like corn dogs to American diners since the popular street food is battered and served on a stick. But instead of cornmeal, Ssong’s Hotdog creations feature a rice flour-based batter and a panko coating, with some versions even incorporating chunks of potato into the crust for an extra carb hit. Play it safe and opt for a traditional hot dog inside or get cheesy with ooey-gooey mozzarella filling. Other options include sausage, crab stick, and seaweed spring roll.
