About the Chefs

Kiki Aranita and Chris Vacca own and operate Poi Dog, a restaurant, food cart, and catering business in Philadelphia. “Poi Dog” is a pidgin term that refers to the mixed nature of their hybrid Hawaii-style food. Their menus are rooted in Hawaiian cuisine, but also draw upon cultures that have heavily influenced the food of Hawaii, such as Filipino, Japanese, and Portuguese. In the six years since Kiki and Chris started Poi Dog, they have catered events from beer festivals to galas, taught cooking classes, and traveled around the Philippines learning to make regional specialties from street food vendors.
