  • Small Handful Fresh Coriander
  • 1 tsp Black Sesame Seeds


  1. Cook the hotdogs as per the packets instructions in a pan full of boiling water. 
  2. While the frankfurters are cooking, prepare the toppings, and slice the hotdog rolls down the middle.
  3. To assemble the hotdogs, spread the inside of the rolls with Kewpie mayo, place a frankfurter inside each roll, and squeeze a line of mayo along the top of each frankfurter, so that the rest of the toppings stick. Divide the shredded lettuce between the hotdogs, followed by a layer of kimchee. Squeeze a zigzag of sriracha over the top of the kimchee, and finish each hotdog with a sprinkling of spring onion slices, fresh coriander and black sesame seeds.
