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.
First of all, you consult the surfboard for all the options and pick your dog. The choices are between a regular beef dog, a sausage dog and a soy-based veggie version. Then you pick a Kona sauce, a fruit sauce and/or a mustard. For my pina colada dog I chose the coconut fruit sauce and the pineapple mustard. The dog then gets constructed and stuffed into a sweet Hawaiian roll.
There just really aren’t words to describe how delicious this was. It was simply the best hot dog I have ever had. I would have never thought to add a coconut fruit sauce to a dog. I would have never thought to mix pineapple and mustard. And yet, it just seemed like such a natural pairing after I tasted it. Genius. Absolute genius.
Next time I am getting two dogs. One with the garlicky lemon Kona sauce and the other with the mango fruit sauce and the mango mustard. OK- I will get three and my third will be another pina colada dog. Yes- that is what I will do. An absolute 5 out of 5 sprouts.
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.
