Loco Moco

When I was teaching online English lessons at the school in Akihabara, one of the lessons was about travel English, and featured activities in Hawai'i.  So I ended up talking about Loco Moco a lot, but I'd never had a chance to try it.  The restaurant at the top of the Maruya Gardens department store has it on their menu and I bought it for lunch some weeks back.  It's very promising - an egg on top of a hamburger over a bed of rice.  But the brown gravy lacks flavor and restaurants in Japan rarely provide salt or pepper for seasoning.  At 900 yen ($11 USD) it's not that expensive a lunch and it's very filling. Just overly bland.  Served along with a salad and ice coffee.
