The Scrumptious Loco Moco, Hong Kong Style

We like to keep our food promises. When we say we’d come back, you can bet on it we will.

At our first visit last year, I thought to myself, this place is definitely worth a revisit. And boy, was I right!

I don’t know about you, but when I travel, I go for places that are inconspicuous, places that aren’t loaded with people who look like me (tourist).

We arrived for an early lunch when the place was empty, so we had the whole restaurant to ourselves (I don’t know why this is worth mentioning; it’s probably not). The owner, an affable middle-aged lady who did the waiting, cooking, and serving, spoke to us in proper Mandarin, gracefully taking our orders and smiling.

Not surprisingly, we didn’t need much time to decide on our order: 1 bowl of wonton noodle soup, an extra bowl of wonton, a plate of green veggies, 1 spam and egg with rice, and my very own: 2 orders of 2 Loco Moco’s! Each item cost in the range of HKD 25 – 35.

Spam. Egg. Rice. Anyone would be crazy not to worship the union. Put spam with chocolate – I won’t say no.

I know the visuals are clear, but I feel the need to point out that the fried egg yolk was oozing out onto the rice and patty like it’s meant to do just that. The next thing I remember: my somber, empty plate. No recollection of any conversation happening in between. I think I ate a little too fast. I mean, I know I ate too fast. And even though my glee last just a few minutes, the memory of it will be with me forever. And even though this bliss comes once in a year, hey, I’ll take what I can get.
