A Californian hot dog spot has plans for an outpost in Vancouver, and we can’t wait to try its menu of suped-up creations.

Umai Savory Hot Dogs, a mini-chain hailing from San Jose, California, will be opening a spot at 1331 Robson Street (the former location of Chef Lien Vietnamese Cuisine).

Founded in 1992, Umai’s Vancouver eatery seems to be the concept’s first foray into the Canadian market, as they have a handful of locations in the US already.

Umai Vancouver told Daily Hive they are aiming for a late August opening date around the 20th of the month.

We’ll keep you posted if anything changes.
