I also saw this restaurant on the Travel Channel and decided to check it out when in Honolulu. Let's just say it was the most interesting "hot dog" I've ever had. I put "hot dog" in quotes as it really isn't a hot dog -- it's more of a polish sausage. But, that doesn't detract from this little stand of unique sausage sandwiches.

The bun toasted on the inside, mixed with the polish sausage, and the sweet yet tangy fruit-based relishes were extremely unique and tasty.

I just wish they had one of these in Boston -- I would be a regular!

I've saw the show about Puka Dog in Kauai years ago and thought that this was a smart idea.

Toasted bun from the inside, add the sauce, tropical relish, and then the hot dog! I had the mango relish....different...but not in a bad way. There was a slight problem with the sauce though....since the sauce is added first, the hot dog pushed a lot of the sauce to the bottom so it gets messy when you get to the end.

I think Anthony Bourdain went there on this show this year so I wonder if they're busier now?

The lady behind the counter was really friendly and we all started chatting it up. She even gave me a free lemonade since it was my birthday weekend. =)

Will try the one in Kauai in 09 and post up another review on Puka Dog then......I suppose it should taste the same right. =T
