South Asia, meet Sabrett's: This Himalayan hot dog ($6) owes its distinctive flavor to imported spices blended in Long Island City. The Nepalese chef of Sarah Jenny (an Americanized pronunciation of his mother's name) adds his spice mix to traditional fries, to the soft potatoes piled on this dog, and to a squirt-bottle condiment (not shown) for additional zing.
Don't be as proud as I was: Let the fellow cut it in half for you, or lean way forward while you're eating.
