This is Hot Dog, JLT

by Jannat & Pawan Manghnani on July 1st, 2016


Located in the Platinum Tower of Cluster I, JLT, This Is Hot Dog (An unusual but funky name, reminded me of the dialogue from the Hollywood flick 300: "THIS IS SPARTA") serves one of the best (fusion) hot dogs I have ever had, and trust me when I say, I have had a lot of hot dogs in my life, especially in my dorm days in Australia.

Their sausages are soft and perfect, the varieties on offer are crazy but bang on. ​A hot dog is essentially a grilled or steamed sausage served in a long sliced bun. Sausage is one of the oldest forms of processed food & a popular junk food item across the world. 

The sausages were culturally imported from Germany and popularized in the United States of America, where they were a working class street food sold at hot dog stands that came to be associated with baseball and America.

Hot dogs have become a staple for many a junk-food-loyalists over the decades, especially at parks, cinemas and events. Typical hot dog garnishes include mustard, ketchup, onions, mayonnaise, relish, cheese, chili, etc.


JLT is a buzzing place now in terms of it food scenes! So many different cuisines in multiples are available as up and coming restaurants! I would call some of them hidden gems, because they need to be known or else people are missing out! One such place according to us is "This is hot dog" in JLT Cluster I. They offer the freshest dogs in the freshest home baked bread, topped with a ton of varieties which even includes a challenge dog, where they make you sign a legal document before they serve it to you! They have options for salad as a side option as well as fries! So sorted. 

The Ambiance

Laid back and casual, this place is not about the frills but only the flavour! Wooden comfortable seating with an outdoor option as well, makes it a casual diner. The staff is super friendly and they make sure your order arrives on time whilst giving you suggestions on what you might like!

The Salads

One Bowl Full Of Fresh Goodness. The options are amazing.

The Food

Mexican Dog:
Lush guacamole and sour cream mixed with spring onions, tomatoes, jalapeños and smothered with Cheddar cheese on top of refried beans. The Mexicana version of Hot Dog was by far our favorite of the lot.
Rose Pepper Dog:
A fruity twist on a traditional hot dog. Topped with onions, dill pickles, Emmental cheese, and finished with a splash of gravy pepper sauce. This wouldn't be to everyone's taste. The Rose pepper was more more bitter than spicy.
Hot Dog Masala (Indian Style):
Fresh curry sauce, iceberg lettuce, sour cream and mixed-color pickles. I liked this version, in fact I liked it a lot. They nailed the Indianization of an American favorite with this one.
Smokey Bandit Dog:
Tossed garden veggies (green pepper, jalapeños, iceberg lettuce, sweet corn and black olives) topped with soft cheddar cheese and finished off with rustic smoky sauce. Decent and not that bad. 
Italian Dog:
Parmesan and Emmental cheese both compliment robust pesto flavor with mushrooms, tomatoes, and crunchy onion. Personally, I felt it was a weird combination but if you like all things Italian, by all means, go for it.


Chocolate Fondant:
It does take around 20 minutes to arrive so we ordered it while ordering our meal itself. Rich chocolate cake with a gooey centre served with vanilla ice cream is what this dessert is essentially and it tastes amazing! We had it down to the last spoon almost wanting more, and then some more.
Homemade Cheesecake:
​Fresh, silky smooth with a crumbly finish (Completely gelatin-free). Now, this was a pleasant surprise. We were expecting a generic and preserved cheesecake. Not this fantastic and innovative creation. Every bite was heavenly and we could return here just for this particular sweet ending.
