Berkeley's Top Dog in Hong Kong?
I never had the chance to go to Top Dog in Berkeley, but it seems like every Cal alumnus I know can't stop raving about it. And I remember some of them saying years and years ago that they opened one in Hong Kong, and yet I still never got the chance to go. Today, as we went down to the Star Ferry terminal to cross the harbor, we noticed a Top Dog stand there (Shop D, Upper Deck, Central Pier 7, 2167-8991). Cool - the portions at Mak's were too small to last us anyway!
We grabbed that kraut dog pictured above as well as a bratwurst, the latter of which was more exciting given the delightful presence of crackling sprinkled on top. I wasn't a big fan of how cold they kept the pickles in the fridge but otherwise these things did the job. Now that I look at it again though, I don't think this is the same Top Dog as the one in Berkeley. Can anyone verify? We'll have to go there next time we're out there either way.
