The Oki dog is a variant of Hot Dog, a sausage served in a sliced bun and garnished with mustard, ketchup, onions, mayonnaise, relish or sauerkraut. Compared to the hot dog, the oki dog is a bit more difficult to prepare. This dish is made of two sausages on a flour tortilla, covered with chili and pastrami and wrapped up like a burrito. The Oki Dog originated in California back in 1970. It was invented by an Okinawan native, Sakai "Jimmy" Sueyoshi, who immigrated to the United States and had a hot dog stand near the Hollywood's clubs, selling variations of hot dogs till late. He was the first one to serve the sausages wrapped in tortilla. The oki dog is a very popular street food in Los Angeles and may be bought at almost every hot dog stand in the city.
