Kona Dog Food Truck

5 out of 5 sprouts

The Pina Colada Dog. Yummy.  Delicious. Heavenly.  I love hot dogs.  Love.  However, in trying to eat healthier I have had to give up eating hot dogs.  So when I found a soy veggie dog at the Kona Dog food truck I had to try it.  Wow!  I could not taste the difference between this soy-based dog and a beef hot dog.  I had to even go back and ask to make sure I wasn’t served the meat version.  And I wasn’t.  It was just that good.

The dog then gets constructed and stuffed into a sweet Hawaiian roll.

They move around to the different food truck gatherings around the Orlando area so you have to check the Kona Dog Facebook page to find them.

    One of the things I miss the very very most since going vegan is a great hotdog. We have tried all kinds of vegan hotdogs and they just don’t do the trick (if I EVER would cheat it would be with a good old-fashioned dog.) SO……..if this truck is as good as you say it is, we are finding that Baby when we come down to Orlando :-)
