For some reason, I associate Hawaiian food with breakfast. Maybe it’s because whenever I’m in LA, I inevitably end up at one of my favorite Hawaiian haunts one morning.
I’ve noticed in the past few years that more and more Hawaiian restaurants have been popping up in Vegas. I guess it makes sense, what with Vegas being ‘The 9th Island’ and all!
One of the newer ones happened to be on our way to the recycling center one Saturday morning, so we stopped in to give it a try. While I normally get fried rice & eggs (unhealthy, yes, I know), Adam’s favorite is the loco moco, so we decided to split that. I’m glad we did, because it was huge! A mound of rice, topped with two patties and two fried eggs, all smothered in brown gravy. Yeah, I think my heart would’ve preferred the fried rice, come to think of it. But it was tasty. The service was a bit slow, but we didn’t mind too much as they were making it fresh for us.
The restaurant is tiny, and I believe more of a takeout place. Oh, and it’s not exclusively Hawaiian, but half Hawaiian, half soul food. A bit of an odd combination, yet both are comfort foods and a bit on the, err, unhealthy side, so I guess they work together. I’m going back to try their chicken & waffles soon…
