You might not expect fine dining at a restaurant named DougiDog Hot Dogs. But the Vancouver sausage joint has a foot-long Dragon Dog ($100) that could change your mind. The pricey bratwurst — apparently the world's only dog that sells for three figures — is infused with century-old $2,000-a-bottle Louis XIII cognac, topped with fresh lobster and Kobe beef seared in truffle and olive oil, and served with a secret picante sauce. "At that price," says Mary Beth Quirk at The Consumerist, you'd expect the sauce to be "made of edible diamonds."
