Last week, I ended up working a few early shifts at work and had a chance to hit the Brew'au at Whitestone Brewery. We were excited to try Waha Nui' Puka Dog Grill and watch the hula dancers. As soon as we arrived, Mike went to pick up some beers and I got in line to order our hot dogs. The name of the food truck has to do with how the hotdog is stuffed in a special hole in the bread. They used polish dogs, which had almost a sausage taste to them. The Polish dog was the reason I was willing to try the hot dogs at all! There was a little bit of a line when I went to order and their ordering system didn't seem to be as well organized as many of the other trucks we've tried.
I opted for the Original, which had a bun, polish dog, Waha Nui sauce (Lemon garlic), pineapple relish, and guava mustard. Mike picked the Fire Dog, which had the bun, Polish dog, jalapeño sauce, mango jalapeño relish, papaya mustard, and sweet hot sauce. We had a side of Miss Vickie's kettle chips too. The hot dogs were really good. Our only complaint was that the condiment was mostly on the first bite and then deep down in the bun, due to the way the hot dogs were shoved in the hole in the bread. Otherwise, they were great and it was another Whitestone food truck win.
After dinner, we enjoyed another brew and waited for the hula dancers. Little did we know, that not only would we see a show, but we also got to be a part of the show! I was selected for the first group to hula and we learned some basic moves with pineapple (right hip) and coconut (left hip). It was fun and the video even made it to their Facebook page. Mike got selected for the second, much harder hula dance. It was an all male dance and it was much more difficult to learn and follow along. We also enjoyed the Hawaiian decor and had we worn Hawaiian shirts, we may have enjoyed prizes as well. Overall, it was a great night and we can always count on Whitestone to deliver a fabulous time.
