If you’re a hotdog lover in Singapore, here’s a restaurant where you can hang out and enjoy some delightful hotdogs with beer.
Hotdogs Inc doles out high-quality sausages paired with freshly made buns.
Since its inception last year, mainstays such as Wagyu Beef Roll; Soft Shell Crab; and Pork Cheese Sausage have won the hearts of gourmands.
I tried out the new menu dishes at Hotdogs Inc and was delighted with the variety of hotdogs on offer.
My favourite was the Kurobuta Pork Roll which is made from the juicy, tender and high-end meat culled from Berkshire pigs, which boasts delectable marbling.
You can have it with either Asian, German or Japanese topping – I was partial to the German one.
The Kurobuta went down well with the Great White Beer by the New Zealand-based Mac’s Brewery.
The restaurant also serves up delectable side dishes such as Cheeky Spicy Wings and Premium Squid Balls.
