I must admit-this looks & sounds disgusting!! My husband "discovered" this while on vacation in Maui & has since learned it is a huge local tradition all over the islands. This is the recipe he found in a local cookbook before we left. I haven't tried it myself-but he LOVE, LOVE, LOVES it & swears I would too if I did. The cookbook described it as a delicious heart-attack on a plate...yikes!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 scoops sticky white rice
  • 2 fried hamburger patties
  • 2 fried eggs
  • 1 -2 cup beef gravy


  1. Place the 2 scoops of rice on the plate.
  2. Top with the 2 fried hamburger patties.
  3. Top those with the 2 fried eggs.
  4. Cover all with as much brown gravy as you like.

This was quite good... much better than I expected. I was playing café world on fb and my kids noticed a meal called Loco Moco and asked me to make it... So here I sit typing a review...
I used homemade hamburger patties, white rice, farm fresh eggs and gravy. It was very filling and very good. Something I will make again, thank you for posting : )

Now THIS is our loco moco as it is served all over Hawaii. I make this with homemade patties not the frozen kind...makes a big difference in flavor. Thank you for sharing and bringing back memories.

Great Hawaiian comfort food. Like one of the others posted, I first saw this on Cafe World and after a year decided to try it. I'm glad I did. It does not sound right but it tastes fantastic! My picky 8 year old daughter LOVED it! It is filling and satisfying.
