Hapa Dog has its day

Several months ago, a new hot dog counter popped up in the food court in the Waikiki Shopping Plaza, and word has slowly spread about its taste and value.

Pay attention when you descend to the food court from Kalakaua Avenue, or you’ll miss it. As soon as you get off the escalator, it’s on your right. All dogs are quarter-pound sausages, filleted and grilled to order. Your best bet is to go early, as we’ve seen them sell out — not just because they’re good, but also because all the dogs on the menu board are just $5, including chips and a drink. That’s right, a complete meal for just $5 in the heart of Waikiki. Take a look at what you get for the price.
