Weird black Hot Dog (7 pictures)

Japan is known for its selection of weird foods. The Black Hot Dog is one of the most popular fast-food delicacies sold in Tokyo. It’s over 30 centimeters long and looks like it’s been cooked a few hours longer than necessary. Some people claim the buns and sausage are infused with squid ink for coloring, but according to a number of reports in the Japanese media, producers actually uses edible bamboo charcoal powder. Apparently tastes better than it looks.
