Tokyo Hotdogs and Mei-Ko-En Beef Bowls at Shirokiya Japan Village Walk

Tokyo Hotdogs
Shirokiya Japan Village Walk has welcomed non-stop crowds ever since its opening last month, and over the weekend I got to try out two of the eateries with @nanigurl808 and @wehearthawaii  - Tokyo Hotdogs and Mei-Ko-En, both of which are Meat Hero, Inc. companies.

We met with co-founder "Aki" over the weekend to sample some of Tokyo Hotdogs' and Mei-Ko-En's eats.

Tokyo Hotdogs offers hot dogs stuffed in buns made by La Tour, topped with a variety of fixings, and accompanied by some fries.  .

The best seller is the Yakisoba Dog - Yakisoba, mayo, dried seaweed, and red pickled ginger.  Aki advised that in Japan, Yakisoba is commonly eaten in a roll split down the middle, so I can see why the Yakisoba Dog is a best-seller.

I tried the Karaage Dog.  I loved it.  The pieces of chicken were juicy and flavorful.

Be sure to grab a knife and fork - most of the hot dogs are piled high with toppings making it nearly impossible to eat mess-free with just your hands.

Other hot dogs we tried that day were the Kimchee Dog and Beef Bowl Dog.

The hot dogs are very filling because they're just loaded with toppings.

For less adventurous eaters, Tokyo Hotdogs offers a Classic Dog with just Ketchup and Mustard, and will soon be offering a Chili Cheese Dog.  A Terimayo Chicken Dog is coming soon as well - I definitely would want to give that a try.

And in case you're wondering what Aki's favorite hotdog is - it's the Natto Dog!

At the other end of Shirokiya Japan Village Walk is Mei-Ko-En.  Mei-Ko-En, which was established in 1978 in Japan, specializes in Gyu-Don, or Beef Bowls.  

For just $8.99, you'll get a generous bowl of rice topped with thinly sliced beef in the secret Gyu-Don Sauce. 

The bowls are huge, and could easily be shared!  Mei-Ko-En also offers beef bowls with kimchee or cheese, as well as a variety of bentos.

Both Tokyo Hotdogs and Mei-Ko-En offer delicious and convenient grab-and-go eats.
