    Default Manhattan Eatery's $69 Hot Dog Is World's Most Expensive

    Hagen for News
    Trudy Tant of South Carolina bought Serendipity 3's Guinness World Record $69 hot dog.

    Does the world's most expensive hot dog cut the mustard?
    Frankly, yes, declared a woman who forked over $69 for the winning wiener Friday.
    "It was great. Great flavor," said tourist Trudy Tant, 49, who played a key role in helping a Manhattan restaurant savor another Guinness World Record.
    Tant, of Rock Hill, S.C., said she was outside Serendipity 3 on E. 60th St. Friday morning - National Hot Dog Day - when owner Stephen Bruce asked her to spend her dough on the pricey frankfurter.
    The publishing company worker said she relished the opportunity "to do something out of the ordinary."
    The haute dog, prepared by head chef Joe Calderone, comes with truffle oil, a salted pretzel bed, truffle butter, duck foie gras, Dijon mustard, Vidalia onions and ketchup.
    Tant paid for the foot-long with Guinness World Records official Kimberly Patrick looking on.
    The restaurant racked up the priciest dog record right away; there was no previous titleholder, Patrick said.
    Bruce said he chose to set a hot dog record because the frank is as American as apple pie.
    The restaurant also holds the record for the most expensive ice-cream sundae - at a rich $1,000 - and the largest hot chocolate at 4 gallons.
    "It's fun. I always want something bigger and better," Bruce said. "Who knows what we're gonna create next time?"

    That doesn't sound like it would taste too good. Well, not good like a hotdog generally tastes.

    $69 for a foot long. How Freudian.

    That mans smile is almost scary. Im sorry, I cant find it in me to get worked up over a hot dog. Maybe a cheeseburger but not a hot dog. And is that bun made out of pretzel dough? Doesnt seem like a tasty idea at all to me.

    It probably had her on the bog for an hour straight afterwards.

    If I'm going to pay $69 to put something long and tasty in my mouth it AIN'T going to be a hotdog, that's for sure.

    So not at all.
