Puka Dog

Kaua'i, Hawaii

My husband and I made this our last meal on Kaua'i before heading to the airport and man, did we make the right choice! Their veggie dogs are amazing, and they way they do their buns is genius.. they stab a hole through the middle and fill it up with dog, relish and mustard so when you eat it, it doesn't leak all over your hands and the dog doesn't fall out. Brilliant! My only complaint is that when you get to the end, there's about 3-4 inches of solid bun left. Either a smaller bun or a bigger dog would be an improvement, but when a vegan can go out to lunch for huge hot dogs, a vegan shouldn't complain!

I visited a local favorite, Puka Dog, in Poipu Shopping Village. They have a veggie dog that is vegan. Puka Dog has a good FAQ section on their website for all dietary concerns. The garlic lemon secret sauce is not vegan, though, so opt to just get one of their relishes or other condiments. I tried it with the lilikoi mustard on my hot dog which is passion fruit mustard (amazing!). There is a lot of bread on this which is its only downfall. It's also kinda large, so you could definitely split one with somebody for lunch.
