New York, July 24 (ANI): A New York restaurant has won the Guinness World Record for selling the most expensive hot dog at 69 dollars.

And Serendipity 3 on E. 60th St. Manhattan has tourist Trudy Tant to thanks for its yet another Guinness World Record.

“It was great. Great flavor,” the New York Daily News quoted Tant, 49, as saying.

Tant, of Rock Hill, S.C., said she was outside the restaurant Friday morning - National Hot Dog Day - when owner Stephen Bruce asked her to spend her dough on the pricey frankfurter.

The publishing company worker said she relished the opportunity “to do something out of the ordinary.”

The haute dog, prepared by head chef Joe Calderone, comes with truffle oil, a salted pretzel bed, truffle butter, duck foie gras, Dijon mustard, Vidalia onions and ketchup.

Tant paid for the foot-long with Guinness World Records official Kimberly Patrick looking on.

The restaurant racked up the priciest dog record right away; there was no previous titleholder, said Patrick.

Bruce said he chose to set a hot dog record because the frank is as American as apple pie.

The restaurant also holds the record for the most expensive ice-cream sundae - at a rich 1,000 dollars - and the largest hot chocolate at 4 gallons.

“It’s fun. I always want something bigger and better. Who knows what we’re gonna create next time?” said Bruce. (ANI)
