Winter Comfort Food
The legend of Loco Moco!
The loco moco was first served back in 1949 in Hilo, Hawaii. Young, broke surfers needed something cheap, filling and loaded with carbs.
The youngsters named this dish after one of their buddies whose nickname was “Crazy” or “Loco”. The word ‘moco’ was added simply because it rhymes!
The ultimate comfort food, we’ve created our own elevated version featuring Wagyu beef, shiitake mushroom and umami sauce!
What is Katsu?
The Japanese word ‘katsu’ means cutlet in English. Essentially a Japanese-style fried chicken, the seasoned chicken is coated with panko breadcrumbs that are so light and crispy when cooked, you get a satisfying crunch and then a taste of moist and juicy chicken!
Chicken katsu is traditionally served with white rice and tonkatsu sauce, a thick and tangy Japanese vegetarian brown sauce. We’re serving ours two ways, a delicious sando and a mouthwatering luau bowl!
