Move over the regular hotdogs, the world is now being taken over by its desi version!
Beating international food chains such as Burger King, McDonalds and KFC at the recently held UberEats APAC Restaurant Partners Awards 2019, Vijay Singh Rathore’s desi Johnny Hotdog has proven that desi is indeed the best!
Rathore, an entrepreneur from Indore who runs his tiny shop in the popular street of the city, Chappan Dukan was recently felicitated at the event held by UberEats for the most ordered dish in all of the Asia-Pacific region. His desi and vegetarian Johnny hotdog not only beat the likes of renowned global brands to claim the award but also set the record straight for many of its kind.

INDORE: One food suggestion that almost everyone who ever lived in Indore gave us was to visit this tiny stand-and-eat food place called #JohnnyHotDog at 56 Dukaan Street and have the mutton hot dog. Although it may not look like a quintessential hot dog, but it’s out of this world. A little warning though.. carry a bottle of water with you because it is reeeaaallllyyy spicy. But, totally worth it. 🌶🌶🌶 …. ..

Singh and his younger son had tied up with UberEats only last year and since then their production of hotdogs has tripled. Singh gives credit for his success to the digital revolution in India that is now sweeping even across the smaller towns and cities.
Speaking about his big win Singh stated that while it was a good experience, he prefers to be in his shop cooking.
Having worked for 50 years over a hot stove Rahtore’s hotdogs are a complete delight and extremely popular in the city. Unlike its name, this desi dish is vegetarian which has a spicy potato patty as its filling and is tossed in butter and served in desi style with green chutney.
The event held in Hong Kong by the online food aggregator was a part of the UberEats Future of Food Summit which saw some of the most popular food chain brands being felicitated.
