Acclaimed craft casual concept rolls out first limited-time offer of its 2019 Chef Collaboration Series, just in time for Hawaiian Foods Week
Dog Haus, the craft casual concept known for its gourmet hot dogs, sausages, burgers and one-of-a-kind creations, is celebrating Hawaiian Foods Week by introducing the Karaage Kid, a special chicken sandwich that embodies the unique flavors of Hawaii.
Available only in June, the Karaage Kid is the first of six special items that will be featured in Dog Haus’ 2019 No Kid Hungry Chef Collaboration Series.
Created exclusively for Dog Haus in collaboration with KING’S HAWAIIAN’s National Corporate Executive Chef Bert S. Agor, Jr., the Karaage Kid features Japanese karaage fried chicken on a bed of Haus slaw, topped with sweet island ginger sauce, spicy mayo and wasabi furikake served on a grilled KING’S HAWAIIAN bun. It’s an island-inspired sandwich that will surf through Dog Haus locations nationwide throughout June, which includes the annual celebration of Hawaiian Foods Week (June 9-15).

$1 of the purchase price from every Karaage Kid sold nationwide will be donated to Dog Haus’ national charity partner No Kid Hungry, an organization dedicated to ending childhood hunger in America.
Each talented chef featured in the Chef Collaboration Series works closely with Dog Haus’ culinary team and Würstmacher Adam Gertler to craft an item showcasing their unique culinary style. It’s an opportunity for diners who may not otherwise be able to enjoy the chef’s work to do so at their favorite Dog Haus location.
“We’re kicking off this second series of limited-time offers with one of our favorite partners, Chef Bert, because we want a truly special item to feature during Hawaiian Foods Week,” said Dog Haus Co-Founder Quasim Riaz. “As always, he came through with an amazing sandwich that will undoubtedly be a popular addition to our menu from coast to coast. We’re also proud to once again support No Kid Hungry and do our part to help feed underprivileged children across the nation.”
The Hawaiian Foods Week campaign promotes the celebration of Hawaiian food culture across the country and encourages consumers to incorporate the “Taste of Aloha” in their culinary adventures. KING’S HAWAIIAN is raising its stake in this year’s series by not only donating all of the KING’S HAWAIIAN bread used for each limited-time offer, but by collaborating with Foodbeast and Dog Haus through the mind and palate of Chef Bert to handcraft the Karaage Kid and share its delicious ties to the Hawaiian Islands. Chef Bert is a Hawaiian native and third-generation executive chef with extensive experience in kitchens on the islands and the mainland.
“I’ve worked with the Dog Haus folks for years, so I’m really proud they asked me to be the first featured chef in this year’s awesome series,” Chef Bert said. “Anyone who has spent time in Hawaii has probably tried karaage, so they’ll instantly recognize the unique flavors. For others, it will be new, but it just might make you start planning your next vacation to the islands!”
