These days, dogs are dressed to the nines. Never mind all the geographic differences (it seems like every major city now has to claim its own distinct way of doing up a hot dog). Chefs and food trucks are getting in on pushing limits, too, topping hot dogs with everything from kimchee to mango chutney.
