Original Kasper’s Hot Dogs’ (Brief) Revival

The neon sign is lit and the window frames have received a fresh coat of mustard-yellow paint, but Original Kasper’s Hot Dogs, the iconic Temescal eatery, isn’t quite back in business — yet. The eye-catching, triangular building at the intersection of Telegraph and Shattuck avenues has temporarily reopened its doors, reincarnated as campaign headquarters for Oakland City Council District 1 candidate Len Raphael. Why is this good for foodies? Kasper’s owner, Harry Yaglijian, will be back behind the counter this Sunday, serving up his signature tomato-, cheddar cheese-, and onion-laden dogs for the second time in a decade.

Original Kasper’s Hot Dogs will serve its classic hot dogs this Sunday, for free.
