At the Kimpton Maa-Lai’s first-floor cafe, you can now feast on some dogs with your dog in tow.
Tapping into a burgeoning hot dog trend that seemed poised to take off not long ago (see: House of Hotdogs, Pappy’s), the hotel’s dog-friendly Craft is now serving delightfully over-the-top hot dogs of its own (what they bill as “plus-sized” hot dogs). Big enough for two, they’re available in four fully loaded versions.
The Very Hot Dog offers sai oua (northern Thai sausage), green chili, and pickled cucumber between a coriander-chili bun; the New Yorker features a nine-inch footlong loaded with heaps of roasted eggplant, spicy Japanese seaweed, and crunchy fried chicken; and El Mexican sees fatty and salty chorizo rubbed with smoky chipotle sauce and topped with a sunny side-up egg.
For those going meatless, Craft has the Vegan, a plant-based sausage with creamy avocado, roasted shimeji mushroom, and salsa. 
The prices start at B390 for one; B700 for two; and B1,248 for four hot dogs.
The hotel has lots of other deals going on right now, too. Those include home bartender sets for takeaway at Craft, three-course lunch sets at Ms. Jigger (B890++), and an intriguing-sounding “Negroni-cation”—from Sep 13-19, stay at the hotel, and you’ll get in-room dining, an upgrade to a 108sqm junior suite, Negronis served in your room over dinner, breakfast at Stock.Room, and late check-out (until 3pm) for B8,339/night.
