The Loco Moco is a dish unique to Hawaiian cuisine. There are many variations, but the essential loco moco consists of white rice topped with a hamburger patty, a fried egg, and brown gravy. Variations may include bacon, ham, Spam, kalua pork, Portuguese sausage, teriyaki beef, teriyaki chicken, mahi-mahi, shrimp, oysters, and other meats.
It may not look like anything fancy – but it’s absolutely delicious!
And apparently, it’s supposed to be topped with fried eggs (with runny egg yolk), but the server asked me how I wanted my eggs. Thank GOD I didn’t ask: “Do you have Egg Beaters?” Anyway, it’s not my fault that this Loco Moco experience was less-than-proper. I would like to apologize to all Hawaiians for this egg-regious error.
