A unique take on the hot dog. Puka has veggie dogs and it can be vegan if you leave out their special sauces. Load up on the fruity goo instead. Anthony Bourdaine has eaten at Puka, so that says something, right?

Had to try one of these. The server insisted on trying the sauce and relish as I just wanted a plain hotdog. It wasn't bad, but they put too much sauce on to my liking. If you don't normally put sauce/relish on a hotdog, definitely tell them limit how much they put on there.

If you are a fan of the extras, try the spicy sauce and the mango relish.

We had to try these hot dogs. They're quite fun, served in a tubular bun with a variety of toppings, including sauces and relishes that range from fruity to spicy. The four of us each ordered something different and it was a fun and affordable lunch, even for those of us who are not hot dog fans. I think it's fun to try and isn't bad, but was not my favorite....

The Puka dog is uniquely Hawaiian and wonderful. Lots of choices for toppings but the Hawaiian mustard is a must. Could eat this every day.

I visited the location in Poipu and Hanalei, which is located in the Ching Young Village, which is on the makai (ocean) side of the highway. For a first-timer, ask to taste the fruit relish first and get condiment recommendations from the staff before ordering. I tried the pineapple and mango relish. The buns were better than buns you can buy in the supermarket. I learned that the owners haven't updated their website and haven't put the new location (which opened in May) on their web page as of yet. If you're in the area, it's worth checking out.
