Korean Corn Dogs being sold by Pete Mans Cheez Dog’z

It’s not uncommon to see food stands around Southern California. Ranging from street foods such as tacos, hot dogs, Mediterranean and many others.

I came across a certain type of street food that became viral on the internet being served in the San Fernando Valley. That food being Korean corn dogs, served at a stand called Pete Mans Cheez Dog’z.

I had gone to the stand located in Canoga Park to see what was being served and right there on the menu was multiple kinds of corn dogs. What had intrigued me was the styles of these corn dogs. They aren’t made anything like American corn dogs. The inside of it has both cheese and sausage with the bread having not just regular toppings but different styles such as potatoes, Hot Cheetos, Takis, Fruity Pebbles, etc.

After looking at a variety of different outer toppings, sausage, and cheese, I chose Flamin’ Hot Cheetos with 100% beef sausage and mozzarella cheese. At the stand they have online payment options such as Venmo, Paypal, and Cashapp; I used regular cash. The wait time was pretty quick, about 5 to 10 minutes.

Looking at it, the size of the corn dog was bigger than an average one, about 9 to 10 inches. The outer part of the corn dog was completely covered in Hot Cheeto crumbs. After my inspection I finally took a bite of the food.

The flavor was absolutely immaculate, the combination of Hot Cheetos and mozzarella gave it a wonderful savory flavor. However, nothing could’ve prepared me for the sausage. It was absolutely delicious, better than a regular hot dog that is used for corn dogs. By far, this is one of the best street foods to try out in the valley.

My overall experience with this stand was perfect.

If someone wants to grab a quick yet flavorful and filling bite, Pete Mans Cheez Dog’z is the place to go.
