Japan is home to some uniquely bizarre fast food creations. There’s Corn Dog Crust Pizza, Foie Gras burgers, and now, introducing the Black Terra Hot Dog. Created by Tokyo’s Vegas Premium Hot Dogs, the all-black wiener and bun is made using edible bamboo charcoal powder, which is a popular food dye in Asia.
The dog is 30-centimeter long hot dog quickly became popular in Tokyo after being introduced in March, particularly with tourists. Customer reviews have been mixed, but the restaurant claims that the bamboo powder does not affect the taste at all.
Personally, I’m a fan of burnt and burnt-looking food, so I’d be all over this (if I ate red meat).
