I saw this dish on a TV Travel channel. It was served at an up scale diner on one of the Hawian Isles. I recall the name of the diner as being "Mike's", but I don't remember the name of this dish!

This is known as a "Loco Moco". It has been said that it originated on "The Big Island" in Hilo. You can find it almost anywhere in Hawaii, and is one of my favorite breakfast meals! You might also want to try a version that was served at a bar I used to work at in Manoa. Instead of brown gravy, they used chili, thus the "Chili-Loco"!
