The Oki Dog: Fusion cuisine to da max
Betty Shimabukuro, Honolulu Star-Bulletin, Sept. 1, 2004

An Oki Dog begins with a hot dog (any type, but red is aesthetically best), a dollop of chili (must be from Zippy's, founded by the Okinawan Higa family), a few slices of shoyu pork (this is what truly makes it Okinawan), shredded lettuce (iceberg, for crunch), wrapped in a flour tortilla (for ease of transport)... Consider it an example of four-part fusion: American/ Mexican/ Tex-Mexican/ Okinawan. Or consider it inexplicable.

Saw this at last year's Okinawan Festival, but was too chicken to try it. I'll stick with my old standards: shoyu pork and andagi. :D

Looks interesting but I suppose you can't buy it here other than at the festival?
