HH and I recently took a trip to Oahu and visited some of the Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. This visit included Hank’s Haute Dogs in Waikiki and Big Wave Shrimp/Macky’s Shrimp Truck in Haleiwa.
Hank’s Haute Dogs was in a business section of Waikiki and the restaurant was under construction – they were expanding. HH and I got to experience the original set-up with a few stools inside at the window counter and picnic benches outside in the converted parking spaces. HH had the Fat Boy, a dog wrapped in bacon and deep fried. I had the Hawaiian wit Kukui Portuguese sausage, mango mustard and pineapple relish. Both were delicious and the natural cut French fries were awesome with garlic aioli dipping sauce.
At Big Wave Shrimp/Macky’s Shrimp Truck, the set-up was a food truck in a permanent setting, HH and I experienced that a lot on Maui too. We had crunchy coconut shrimp and garlic butter shrimp with rice and salad. This place had quite the business going, with the tourist buses pulling up and the to-go plates already for them to grab and eat. The shrimp was very good.
