It’s Monday…


Ono Cheese Steak @ Waikiki – Loco Moco: 2 Sunnyside-up eggs heaped over 2 massive grilled beef patties and 2 scoops white rice, then smothered with brown gravy, along with a side of Mac’ Salad. $7.99. Cardiology service sold separately.

It’s Monday, and you don’t feel like getting back to work, but you gotta’. Not to fret. Get some Loco Moco, baby! Oh yeah.

Make sure to mix it up real good into that “hot mess”, just to remind you how you felt when you woke up this morning…


Ono Cheese Steak @ Waikiki – Loco Moco: 2 Sunnyside-up eggs heaped over 2 massive grilled beef patties and 2 scoops white rice, then smothered with brown gravy, along with a side of Mac’ Salad. $7.99. Cardiology service sold separately.

Someone should just shoot the Loco Moco through the ROOF: take that plate and smother it with Cheese Whiz, then wrap it up with several layers of buttermilk pancake, with lots of melted butter and Mozzarella Cheese between each layer.

Wait, let me catch my cardiac breath.

Then, dip that in an all-yolk egg wash, then dredge that whole deal with Fritos and Doritos, then back in more buttermilk, then finish the “crust” with crushed Ruffles Potato Chips.

Take that “Lotza’ hunka’ hunka’ Loco Moco Burnin’ Love” and deep-fry it in 100% pig’s lard until it’s “GBD”.

Then serve this here “Loco Moco Madness” over a bed of cheesy garlic fries that’s been smothered with Corned Beef ‘n Bacon Chili, Bacon Bits, more melted Cheese of any kind, Chicharons, more Bacon Bits, Sour Cream, more Bacon Bits, Mayonnaise, Buttermilk Ranch Dressing, Country Gravy, Brown Gravy (heck, ANY gravy!), Non-clarified melted Butter, and Hollandaise Sauce.

Hell yee-yeah. Do that!

Oh, and please, no green salads allowed on site during this fiasco.

Whooo!!!

Friday’s right around the corner! Not.

    Super important question. Because I do walk by this place on occasion.

    Are the patties local style home made?

      Pat, the generously-portioned beef patties (two!) are definitely “house-made”, but it doesn’t have any fillers or veggies mixed in it. Just ground beef, probably “glued” together with eggs, and that’s it. Nothing remarkable, really, nor is their gravy. I’d give Ono Cheese Steak’ Loco Moco 2 SPAM Musubi (good) on flavor, along with 4 (excellent) on appearance and value. That really is a good deal for Waikiki.

    Pomai,
    I only able to eat half of that box meal. Always really a small eater that meal would last me breakfast and lunch which is not bad. That why not the type that go to buffet only eat few things and full.

      Amy,

      That said, this is what I commented back to Kelike in that regard from the Tacos & More! post…

      “Kelike,

      You know what’s interesting is that, since losing weight, I actually can eat more now, usually “polishing” the plate (cleaned up). Whereas before when I was overweight, hardly ever did that, usually taking home leftovers.

      It’s a metabolism thing. Most skinny people I know have VORACIOUS appetites, where you might think “where the heck did that all go?”. I’m now back in that club – pretty much, yet still got 10 more pounds to go.”

      Chuck-san,

      How do you think a “Hawaiian style” Saimin stand would do out in Alabama? Where the menu would include not just Saimin in all varieties (plain, loaded with charsiu, loaded with Wontons, plus shrimp tempura, etc.), but also local faves such as plate lunches, “local style” burgers and Teriyaki BBQ sticks. Do you think “Rocket City slickers” would eat that up?

        If Korean and Vietnamese cuisine can do pretty well out here, I don’t see why Hawaiian couldn’t. :)

        There’s a couple of Japanese restaurants in the Huntsville area, no saimin, but couple do have domburi. Haven’t asked about why no saimin.  Funny thing also about the chinese places here; you don’t see a lot of char siu either as garnish or on buffet lines… and forget it about lup chong in fried rice or anything else!(though you can sometimes get lup chong in COSTCO!) Go figgah…  and NOBODY seems to do manapua or gau gee but one place does siu mai / porkhash. I gotta stop or I’ll get too depressed! LOL

      Ryan, I’m not concerned. My metabolism is back in top shape. I burn calories fast, not seeing it add-up on the scale. Two words: GREEN TEA + one word: EXERCISE
