$7; Haiyo Dog at EatsPlace, 3607 Georgia Ave. NW; 202-882-3287

Takoyaki is a ubiquitous street food in Japan, traditionally made with deep-fried octopus topped with bonito flakes (dried and fermented fish) and Kewpie mayo (Japanese mayonnaise made with rice vinegar). EatsPlace, the restaurant incubator in Park View, recently started serving a hot dog inspired by the dish: A turkey, beef or veggie dog is served on fluffy milk bread and topped with Kewpie mayo, bonito flakes and nori.
