What does loco moco mean?

Loco means “crazy” in Spanish, and moco means burger. Put it together? Possibly one of the tastiest breakfast items you’ve ever had, and ever will have. It’s a popular Hawaiian dish that pairs fried eggs, gravy, burger, and white rice for a fabulous breakfast, lunch, or dinner option.

What is the loco moco gravy made out of?

The loco moco gravy is legendary, and not like any other gravy you’ve ever had before. That’s because there’s extra unusual and incredibly delicious ingredients like shoyu and Worcestershire sauce that’s paired with the traditional beef stock, ketchup, and cornstarch.
