Agree on Cafe 100, so many choices. My fave, fresh grilled (not fried) fish loco, usually mahi mahi or ahi. With brown rice, even healthy. Great local experience for sure.

Hilo's own.... the 'Loco Moco'

History and origin
The dish was reportedly created at the Lincoln Grill restaurants in Hilo, Hawaii, in 1949 by its proprietors, Richard Inouye and his wife Nancy, at the request of teenagers from the Lincoln Wreckers Sports club seeking something that differed from a sandwich, was inexpensive, and yet could be quickly prepared and served. They asked Nancy to put some rice in a bowl, a hamburger patty over the rice, and then top it with brown gravy. The egg came later. The teenagers named the dish Loco Moco after one of their members, George Okimoto, whose nickname was "Crazy". George Takahashi, who was studying Spanish at Hilo High School, suggested using Loco, which is Spanish for crazy. They tacked on "moco" which "rhymed with loco and sounded good". To Spanish-speakers, however, the name can sound very odd, given that they hear it as "crazy snot" (moco is Spanish for "mucus").

We did not know that BH - thanks for clarifying .We are not owners nor do we know the owners.The water is free if you request complimentary water. We always get egg scramble instead of runny un cooked egg.
Brown rice is short grain and cooked /steamed to perfection .

Plus the price is best in town for a Loco Moco .

BH, love that local lore. Mrs. M. At Cafe 100, I order my egg over medium & it's perfect. But didn't know about the brown rice option.

I dont think Ive ever had any bad Loco Moco no matter where Ive had it. pretty hard to mess that one up. It would be edible with minute rice and canned gravy.

I have a sudden craving for popcorn..

You've said you are in your 90's, wouldn't your "grand kids" be in their 40's or 50's? We had grand kids in our 40's. Jus sayin

Yes in our 90s - to be clear - our many off spring range in ages from 40- 50 and their off spring are 20-30 and their kids are ages from new born to ages 12 - 15.So by saying grand kids - they all are - quit nit picking .

This thread is about Loco Moco and our fave is Cafe 100 in Hilo especially when we have the great great great grand kids are with us after or before the beach and after soccer or basketball or girl scout activities .

At Cafe 100 - when ever a person gets a Loco Moco they will stamp a pink card and after you get x number of L.M's you get one free/We have a zip loc bag full of stamped cards so next time we take the great great great great grand kids to Cafe 100 - a free meal for the ohana.Always ask them to stamp your card - not really free but a refund of sorts.
Hikats - how was the corned beef ?

We also like their beef stew with out sauce .
On brown rice but no mac salad .
Keeping our kala local even though the kiddo's wanna eat at Mc Pukes.
Their parents can eat there - not us -Mc Pukes does not have brown-rice .

Glass numbers - have you had a chance to eat at Cafe 100 yet ?
