This Thonglor shop-house is synonymous with sausages and frankfurters. It’s plain to see why: pillow-soft buns, proper sausages from the likes of Sloane’s, and other ingredients from serious local suppliers. Hot dogs range from the straightforward New York classic (beef frankfurter, sauerkraut and mustard, B150) to the creative Bombay Bangers (B180) which includes tikka spices, cucumber-mint raita, grilled onion and mango- ginger chutney. Best slurped up with a creamy vanilla shake (B140 or 180).
159/10 Sukhumvit Soi 55, across from Eight Thonglor, 02-392-1556. Open Mon-Sat 4pm-1am; Sun 4pm-midnight
The tiki-themed bar does some pretty awesome American pub grub. Chief among our favorite dishes is the Mad Moa hot dog (B220), which combines a bun from Pollen (the same supplier as Seven Spoon) and a munchy pork sausage with their special salsa mayo. Pair it with one of the under-the-counter home-brewed beers from Udomsuk Brewing (B140).

Even though they now have a fixed spot at Esplanade Ratchadapisek, you can still regularly find the Hot Dogs and Buns cart at markets and food fests. Of their American-style hot dogs, we recommend the classic New York Dog (B125) and the gourmet chili cheese dog (B145)— the sausage is tasty, while the chili on top adds some serious kick. They boast that their sausages are made from grass-fed beef, happy pigs and pastured poultry.

Following the closure of its stall at BTS Nana, Superbdog has opened a new counter on the ground floor of Park Ventures Ecoplex. The store on Sukhumvit Soi 53 remains, too, with some changes to the menu. They specialize in New York-style hot dogs using premium quality beef, pork and chicken frankfurters with no preservatives added. Try the best-seller Yankee Dog (chili, Wisconsin cheese, mustard and diced onion, B120) or build your own hot dog starting at B80 for a bun and a sausage, plus B20 per topping.

You’ll find this trailer truck parked right in front of Srinakharinwirot University’s entrance 3, which connects with Sukhumvit Soi 31. Beside their homemade corn dogs (starting at B75), they also serve delicious hot dogs, with options ranging from the plain baconwrapped hot dog (B95) to chilli cheese (B110) and pizza dog (B110).
Sukhumvit Soi 31, 087-710-6818. Open daily 7am-7pm
This truck specializes in, you guessed it, hot dogs and burgers. The regular dog, coming in at measly B70, features a homemade pork sausage, onion, ketchup and their original sauce, while the flagship Hip Hot Dog (B95) is topped with chili. Other special ingredients such as mushroom or foie gras are available occasionally. Catch them at The Walk Nawamintr on Tuesday and Thursday nights and other locations like Ramkhamhaeng airport rail link. Do check their Facebook for locations.
The yellow truck in front of J Avenue offers an alternative hot dog experience. Its specialty is Danish dogs, namely rød pølse (B180), in which a long and crispy sausage is served in a bun with mustard, ketchup, imported remoulade sauce, and chopped and fried onions. They also do variations including a French hot dog (B170) in a baguette, salsa dog (B200) and curry dog (B200).
Previously known as the BBQ Sandwich King in Soi Samakhee, this small American-style diner moved to Nichada, rebranded itself and launched a longer menu. Try their salad-on-top Chicago Dog (all-beef hot dog, yellow mustard, sweet green relish, yellow onions, tomato wedges, pickle spears and spicy peppers, B260) or Coney Island Chili Dog (B240). We really love their pickles and their tater tots (nugget-shaped hashbrowns), served with all dogs.
33/1 Samakhee Soi 29, 086-773-4140. Open Wed-Mon 10:30am-9:30pm
