In a contest of overpriced hot dogs, New York City's Serendipity 3 has been unseated by Vancouver's DougieDog Hot Dogs, recently crowned the world's most expensive hot dog seller by Guinness World Records.

The restaurant's foot-long Dragon Dog, a bratwurst, is infused with 100-year-old Louis XIII cognac and topped with Kobe beef, lobster, truffles, and spices. This seemingly unappetizing combination brings the dish's price tag to $100.70.
The Toronto Sun reports that DougieDog owner Dougie Luv is planning to fight to hold onto the title, now that his restaurant has beat out Serendipity, the previous title-holder and seller of a $69 hot dog. "We're going to defend this title forever," he told the Sun. "There's going to be a lot of people wanting to challenge us."
