In the coming months, a new Asian-inspired hot dog joint called Spicy Dog’N Go is expected to make its Montrose debut.
The new restaurant is a project of Oh Peou and Bop Huynh, the duo of University of Houston students who first made waves when it was revealed that they were likely responsible for creating a slew of fake Facebook pages for restaurants that didn’t really exist. Then, Peou and Huynh were reportedly working for a digital marketing agency, but now they’ve ventured out on their own for this brand new project.
And this time, it appears to be legit. In March, Spicy Dog’N Go was registered with the Texas Secretary of State’s office as a limited liability corporation. The restaurant’s website indicates that it will open at 3224 Yoakum Boulevard in Montrose, but no permits have been issued for construction on that space as of yet. Over the past couple of months, though, the fledgling restaurant has hosted pop-ups at Brash Brewing Company that appear to have gone off without a hitch.
As far as the food is concerned, Spicy Dog’N Go will serve a menu of Japanese-inspired hot dogs, topped with everything from crushed Hot Cheetos to bonito flakes and garlic-butter cream cheese. Fries, deep-fried macaroni and cheese balls, and a Korean spin on poutine (topped with bulgogi and caramelized onions) round out the menu.
According to the restaurant’s Facebook page, Spicy Dog’N Go is still waiting on city approval to get started building. Eater has reached out to Spicy Dog N’Go for more details on when it will make its Houston debut. In the meantime, the new eatery will host pop-ups at Buffalo Bayou Brewing Company and Sigma Brewing Company in the coming days.
