Noriki Tamura grew up in Japan dreaming of in the future beginning his personal enterprise abroad. Then in 2005, he moved to Vancouver, Canada, and observed scorching canine carts on each nook. He knew he wanted to boost the market with some new flavors as a way to stand out as high canine. Thus was born Japadog, a scorching canine stand with a twist, that includes conventional Japanese flavors like radish, bonito flakes and nori. Enterprise took off, and now Japadog has grown to eight meals stalls, two eating places and one meals truck. By combining Japanese and Canadian meals cultures, Noriki is serving up one of the best of each worlds.

    0:45 … "as I was Japanese.." I decided to open a Mexican restaurant – for why should I prostitute my own culture ? But then I thought, "Y'know, Japanese food is Ichi Bundis ", so I came up with, JapaDog. It is neither here, nor there. Nor is it kosher. It is, JapaDog. Like, Lt.Saavik (Star Trek II) , or a child born to parents each of a different gender, JapaDog, is unique.

    Sushi in a bun ? It's probably been tried.

    They are really expensive. So expensive that I have not gotten around to trying one yet. If he cut the price by 2 dollars, I think they would really fly off the shelf. But at 7-10 dollars one thinks, "Well, for a couple dollars more, I could have a beef yakisoba stirfry, or a meal at chipotle mexican grill. Oh well, it is McD's today, again. I hate dishes." .. but then, I made up my mind to get one, and the stall was gone. I guess the franchisee got tired of waiting for people to try one.
