The $100 Dragon Dog, which debuted on the DougieDog menu January 23rd of this year, has surpassed the previous record holder, the $69 Haute Dog at Serendipity in New York.

The restaurant received the official world record notification and certificate last week.

"Taking the title away from New York, I feel like we just won the Stanley Cup!" said DougieDog Owner and Chief Hot Dog Designer dougieluv.

The Dragon Dog, infused with hundred-year-old cognac and topped with lobster and kobe beef, has been a popular addition to the restaurant's menu and has already been enjoyed by hundreds of customers.

"A hundred bucks isn't that much to pay for a great, memorable dinner," reasoned Luv. "Plus the Dragon Dog is great for sharing and the perfect way to impress a date."

So what does a hundred dollar hot dog taste like?

"There's no better combination than pork and cognac -- especially when the cognac costs $2400 a bottle."
