Later, poke: Loco moco, a towering combination of rice, hamburger patty and gravy, topped with an egg, is taking your place at the table. Invented in Hilo, Hawaii, in the 1940s, the dish remains a staple in its hometown, and at Nori’s Saimin and Snacks, the teri beef loco is drizzled with homemade teriyaki sauce for a sweet and tangy kick. Los Angeles’ Animal adds foie gras and quail egg to spam and hamburger for a meaty high-end breakfast. And at Bao Down in Vancouver, with a beef patty, garlic fried rice and sunny side up egg, the rest is mushroom gravy.
