Hot Dog or Sushi? Here's a restaurant that can do both!

New South Hot Dog & Sushi gives you the best of both worlds by serving up both hot dogs and sushi rolls with flare!

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — As restaurant week continues to push forward, we want to introduce you to New South Hot Dog & Sushi!

This food truck has traditional and sushi-inspired hot dogs as well as deep-fried sushi rolls.

Not only are they bringing a unique flavor to Rocket City, but they're doing so with a smile!

"We started this truck three years ago and ever since then people always call us 'sushi hotdog'. So, what we do different is we bring sushi ingredients, we put it on hot dogs and we're also really good with our customer service," said Owner of New South Hot Dog & Sushi, Albert Toh.

This week the food truck is whipping up something special for Huntsville Restaurant Week: The Dragonball!

The Dragonball is a sushi-esque dish filled with pulled pork, jalapeños and cheddar cheese wrapped in rice and fried, it's drizzled with bbq sauce, citrus aioli, spicy mayo and sprinkled with sesame seeds.

From the Huntsville Restaurant Week Press Release:

As part of the precautions for COVID-19, the CVB is encouraging alternative ways for both residents and visitors alike to support Huntsville Restaurant Week, primarily by partnering with local delivery services Rocket City Delivered and GrubSouth, which are both waiving the standard delivery fee for participating restaurants using the code HRW2021. Patrons will be able to choose from the variety of participating Restaurant Week establishments that currently offer delivery through either or both of the two services.

Despite the pandemic, diners can expect to see several first-time participants on the list for 2021. BeeZr Gastropub, Bubby’s Diner, Oscar Moon’s, Grille on Main, and Frankie’s Crab Shack are just a few of the newcomers to Restaurant Week.

As a bonus feature of Restaurant Week, the Huntsville/Madison County CVB will be hosting ten days of giveaways through social media. Simply tweet or post to Facebook or Instagram using the official Restaurant Week hashtag #DineHsv with your best “foodie” photos, what dish you most want to try, etc. A winner will be chosen each day throughout the ten days of Restaurant Week to win restaurant gift cards and CVB prizes.

The CVB’s own #iHeartHsv blog will be featuring dedicated food and beverage content throughout the month of August.
