A Korean-style corn dog shop that has become a hit on social media is officially coming to a storefront in Hoboken as Kong Dog is slated to grow significantly throughout New Jersey.
Embracing their motto of “trendy, delicious, and handmade,” Kong Dog’s diversely flavored corn dogs have been a hit on TikTok. The restaurant offers several “dogs” including beef sausage, chicken sausage, a plant-based sausage, a mozzarella version, or a “half and half,” which allows customers to choose a protein alongside the cheese.
The brand opened an outpost in Jersey City’s Newport Centre earlier this year and has another location in Union City on Bergenline Avenue. Kong Dog will soon be opening inside a storefront at 502 Washington Street, marking their third New Jersey location.
Toppings are what stand out at Kong Dog, and their original concoctions include a sweet potato dog crusted with bite-sized pieces of sweet potato. A rainbow variety comes coated with crunchy fruity rice puffs, while their signature hot Cheeto comes sprinkled with Cheeto crumbs and a spicy mayo.
A variety of bubble teas and Korean-inspired drinks round out the menu at the restaurant, which will be coming soon to a neighborhood near you. Kong Dog’s future New Jersey expansion plans include outposts in Edison, Cherry Hill, Newark, New Brunswick, Princeton, Morristown, and Union Township.
