North Americans adore eating hot dogs during the summer months, but this Asian black hot dog is something many Americans have yet to experience. Originating in Tokyo, Japan, the Black Terra Hot Dog is one of the most famous delicacies available in the fast food market.

Essentially, the Black Terra Hot Dog is an overcooked hot dog. The sausage meat and the bun have been overcooked to the point of a burnt texture and consistency. With a crispy and ashy tasting bun and rubber-like sausage, it's a shock that people at fast food restaurants are dying to try the Black Terra Hot Dog. While a strange food concept to say the least, apparently the Black Terra Hot Dog is actually healthier for you with the meat served in a burnt state. Who knew?
