Archive for the ‘Loco Moco’ Category

The Mouse’s bowl, it had the “spirit” of a loco moco, just different. 🙂

Brown rice (instead of white), steamed egg (instead of fried), anchovies with oil (instead of hamburger patty with gravy). Mmm!

The Mouse acknowledges this might be an acquired taste (especially the anchovies), but The Mouse really liked.

And the steamed egg (three minutes) created a better “gravy” than a fried egg (squishier). Less clean-up too. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

So, the place The Mouse picked up his maguro burger from also has omurice on the menu. The Mouse wants. There was a thought that after doing some work at the warehouse yesterday, The Mouse would get the omurice. The Mouse stayed a little longer than planned and didn’t want to drive across town for food.

The next best thing, drive through at Richie’s Drive Inn.

Loco Moco

Massive. Two scoops rice, two eggs, two burger patties, scoop of mac salad, and gravy all over. All for less than $10! Cheap eats.

The warehouse butcher supervisor is right, their gravy is the bomb! Nothing fancy, probably packaged with some in-house modification, no French name, but oh so good.

Plus there are some of the components of omurice (it’s a stretch, but work with me), rice, eggs, gravy. Kinda yeah?

Of course, a visit to Richie’s cannot be without a cup of green river.

Don’t worry, The Mouse couldn’t and wouldn’t eat the whole thing in one sitting (maybe thirty years ago). Even eating less than half put The Mouse into a food coma.

One day, one the timing is right, omurice! Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

Fifty percent off breakfast, this weekend only. The Mouse tried after blood test. Place used to be owned by one of The Cat’s clients but sold. New owners, hence the soft opening.

Kalua Pork Loco Moco on Fried Rice

No extra charge for the fried rice (sometimes, at other places, fried rice is an upcharge), so The Mouse went with it. Two eggs, nom! In hindsight, with the kalua pork and gravy, the fried rice was a flavor bomb. Too much for The Mouse to handle. But tasty. The rice kinda looked like broken rice. Wonder if it was due to the tossing in the wok (The Mouse is assuming a wok was used) or maybe the flattop?

And since it was fifty percent, and a blood test was involved …

Ube Pancakes – Small Stack

Pancakes with Okinawan sweet potato cream. Jus’ to try.

Overall, good job, except for the fifty percent off, a little pricey for The Mouse, if prices were just a little bit lower, say a dollar or two, The Mouse would be more comfortable. Maybe that’s just the “pake” in The Mouse. Jus’ my opinion.

Enjoy. Eat well.

This is what happens when Windows and the phone have updates. Time spent swearing at the computer and phone because pictures can’t be transferred. Ugh!

Anywho, Tuesday’s eats.

Made a run to the chocolate shop, now kinda out-of-the-way. Been wanting to try the nearby tofu themed lunch place for awhile.

Very short menu, three or four items and a daily special. I picked …

Loco Moco

Loco Moco

Hapa rice, hapa patty (half beef, half tofu), mac salad, tossed greens. One sock off (coulda used a little more gravy and a wee bit more fat in the gravy). Still, would go back.

Complimentary fresh made warm tofu (oboro? tofu).

And a cup of antioxidant water.

I dunno, tasted and looked like water to me.

In keeping with the theme, dinner was also “loco”.

It started with leftover pastele stew.

Added “ancient grains” and a fried egg.

The order is a little mixed up, but I was too lazy to “rearrange” the ingredients. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.
