Yaki's is a Burbank teriyaki stand apparently renowned for a singular creation called the Bulldog, which I learned about, oddly enough, from a comment attached to a totally unrelated article in The New York Times. A Bulldog, for the uninitiated, is a hot dog wrapped in a slice of American cheese, further wrapped in a wonton skin, and then deep-fried into an oozing, golden cylinder whose contents are hot enough to sear away half the roof of your mouth if you're not careful. It is served with a little plastic container in which teriyaki sauce and Thousand Island dressing are swirled into kind of a yin-yang pattern, two sauces that are unlovely enough on their own but coalesce into an unholy Third Way when stirred into oneness with the Bulldog. Enlightenment clearly lies elsewhere.
