Posted at 1:55 PM, Nov 16, 2016
One of New York's most celebrated hot dog restaurants is now open in Las Vegas.
Papaya King has opened its first Las Vegas location at Harmon Square, across from the Hard Rock Hotel. The restaurant is known as "the tropical oasis in the concrete jungle" and is a favorite among celebrities such as Anthony Bourdain, Andrew Zimmern, Julia Child and Martha Stewart.
It was also mentioned in a "Seinfeld" episode titled "The Movie." In the episode, Kramer leaves a movie ticket line, where he was saving spots for Jerry, Elaine and George, to get a hot dog from Papaya King. 

The fast-casual restaurant offers variety of hot dogs, along with tropical drinks and smoothies. The 1,558-square-foot space is nearly three times larger than the New York locations.
