Weirdest Regional Foods
Loco Moco, Hawaii
One of Hawaii’s most popular comfort foods, the loco moco consists of white rice topped with a hamburger patty, a fried egg and brown gravy. The dish debuted in 1949 at Lincoln Grill in Hilo, where it was served for 25 cents. Lincoln Grill has since shuttered, but chef Sam Choy offers a stellar traditional version at his Kai Lanai restaurant on the Big Island.
