If you've been to Hawaii, one dish you surely have seen on any breakfast or lunch menu is Loco Moco. The dish was first served in Hilo on the Big Island of Hawaii at the Lincoln Grill in 1949.
The dish has a number of variations, however, the basic recipe calls for white rice, a hamburger patty, brown gravy and a fried egg. A popular variation substitutes SPAM for the hamburger. We all know how much Hawaiians love SPAM. Another variation calls for scrambled eggs instead of a fried egg.
