VANCOUVER - A Vancouver eatery is billing its new Dragon Dog as the most expensive hotdog in the world.

The Dragon Dog is made with a bratwurst infused with century-old Louis the 13th cognac, which costs more than $2,000 a bottle.
Other ingredients include Kobe beef seared in olive and truffle oil, fresh lobster and a secret picante sauce.
DougieDog proprietor dougie luv says he wanted to come up something "super tasty and high-end" that stays true to the traditional identity of the hot dog.
The restaurant claims the Dragon Dog is the first hotdog in the world to sell for three figures, challenging the $69 "haute dog" at Serendipity restaurant in New York.
