You have to eat a Puka Dog! A few years ago, we visited the Puka Dog location on Kauai and everybody in my family fell instantly and deeply in love. My husband is a true blue hot dog fan and he makes the bold claim that this is the best hot dog that he has ever eaten. I have to admit that I have been a vegetarian for most of my life but even I tried and liked this delicious dog. Puka Dog has two locations, one in Kauai in the Poipu Shopping Center and the other is on Oahu in the Waikiki Town Center.
What makes a Puka Dog so special? Well, first the bun is made of the most scrumptious loaf that has a puka (a.k.a-hole in Hawaiian) in one end. The bun is toasted and one of 7 tropical relishes, such as Mango, is poured in. Finally the polish style hot dog is grilled and then placed in the bun. On top of this, a layer of secret lemon garlic sauce is added and the final result is amazing.
