Weiner Hot Dogs @ Da:Men Mall, USJ Subang Jaya

Satisfyingly sloppy hot dogs, served in hefty portions that convey substance & weight, constructed with succulent, real-meat sausages, blanketed in richly flavourful, interesting toppings: Weiner ticks pretty much all the right boxes for a winning wiener.

Choose from playful possibilities like a pork hot dog bundled with mac & cheese, crab meat & dill (RM22) or with wasabi mayo, bonito flakes & seaweed (RM20), beef dog with whiskey-braised onions, pickles & maraschino cherries (RM22) or chicken dog with rogan josh curry, crispy onions & coriander yogurt (RM19). The buns prove soft & fluffy, leaving scant cause for complaint, while the house-made sausages are very well-textured - the beef's our fave, tipping tastily closer to fat than lean, followed by the pork, fresh & luscious. Each ensemble is complemented by an extravaganza of toppings, plus crushed tortilla chips & crackers, that spill across abundantly. Proportions feel fulfillingly near-perfect; no bite bears more bread than meat & toppings.

Weiner, a relatively small & intimate space that aims to channel the bustling, colourful exuberance of an NYC diner, is actually part of Da:Men's most intriguing family of restaurants, spearheaded by the people behind Singapore's Sarnies cafe. So far, they've unveiled Weiner as well as The Big Cheese (specialising in grilled cheese sandwiches) in this mall; by October, a joint for meatball enthusiasts called PMB (Pimp My Balls) is scheduled to launch here, alongside the very first Malaysian Sarnies.

Mercifully, Da:Men now has a venue for cocktails & stiff drinks: All day long, Weiner's bar keeps rockin' with temptations like an Espresso Martini (RM20), Saigon Sally (RM28; gin with pandan syrup, egg white & cream), Pimm's Cup (RM24) & spiked milkshakes including Bourbon Fudge (RM22). Tip: Head here between 2pm-8pm for happy hour savings of up to 30 percent.

    1. Phong Hong: yeah, in the end we ended up trying four hot dogs cos we couldn't settle on just two! ;) PMB is quite a brilliant name for a meatball joint ... And you'll be able to customize your meatball order with different accompaniments! ;)

  6. Overall dinning experience is disappointing. We ordered 2 of their sausages meal and we find it tasteless, dry and the bun is hard. The fried potato is hard and tasteless too. And they served it in a kind of tin pan that keep moving around on the table because of the smooth surface of the table. Saving grace. The ice lemon teas is refreshing and the staff is polite.

  7. Sensational weiners! Everyone seems to be talking about this joint and I can see why. All I can say is go and see for yourself.

  8. Love this place, great find in MY. The interior is super cool, awesome artwork up on the display.

    I had the MacDaddy, super tasty, really enjoyed it. Unlike any other hotdog I've had. The ingredients were super fresh and the portion was hearty, very worth it. The staff were awesome as well. Friendly and happy to help.

  9. Right now you’re probably reading this message because you’re desperate to finally learn how to not only train your dog quickly and effectively, but you also don’t want to have to spend a huge chunk of cash on professional dog trainers or read yet another dog training book that doesn’t get you results.

    Don’t worry, you’re NOT alone in your frustration!
