Korean corn dogs, with their colorful toppings and cheese pull, have become a social media sensation since last summer. And Kong Dog serves up the eye-catching treat to Chicago, with the chain's third and newest location opening this month as demand soars.
The experience starts with choosing the core: you can get a whole stick of mozzarella cheese, or go with the most popular option, half-and-half with meat and cheese.
Toppings are where you can really go wild. Choose among 10 different options from Flamin' Hot Cheetos to bite-sized potatoes to even Fruity Pebbles.
And don't forget the social media classic: the cheese pull.
