I had to try this hot dog joint. Just because Bourdain had been there. With a beach umbrella and surf boards for décor, this little joint makes Hawaiian style hot dogs. Including the veggie dog.
The concept is very straight forward. Select the dog, the level of spiciness and the relish.
We got the hot - hot veggie dog with the mango relish. The veggie sausage was much thinner and not as long as the meat sausage. So it felt like there was more of bread than the filling. They should start using the Tofurky sausage instead of the morning star links.
The only attractive part is the Island flavors. Otherwise, not so great for vegetarians. Of course, if they use Tofurky this place would be my instant favorite!
Right next door is Papalani Gelato. Hotdog and gelato would make a perfect meal. This little place is always over crowded. And as a result, the people at the counter are always edgy. Ask for a sample and she makes a face. Ask for a spoon and she sighs. Horrible service.
We walked away. not very happy, with a scoop each of mango, coconut and chocolate. Not again.
