About PUKA DOG
In August of 2000, Puka Dog opened the doors of the little blue hot dog hut in Kekaha at the base of Waimea Canyon on Kauai. For the next two years Puka Dog took a simple, somewhat forgotten staple food, the “hot-dog” or “sausage” and completely revolutionized it. From the tropical and beautiful surroundings, Puka Dog began sampling and, eventually concocting, mouth-watering relishes and secret sauces from tropical fruits and plants grown on Kauai. With the additional flavor of a choice proprietary sausage or veggie dog nestled in the Puka of a freshly baked bun made with all natural ingredients, Puka Dog has become a one-of-a-kind festival of flavor.
In May, 2002, Puka Dog opened our new shop in the Poipu Village Shopping Center offering this newly developed Hawaiian Style Hot Dog. Poipu is a favorite spot for vacationers, business travelers, and locals. We are enjoying the ever-increasing interest and passion for Puka Dog.
