FINDING VEGAS' BEST LOCO MOCO

Rise & shine

a steak and eggs place

9827 W. FLAMINGO RD

LAS VEGAS, NV 89147

             *Island Inspired "Loco Moco" Steak Burger & Eggs  

steak burger, shaved spam, rice, gravy-yaki sauce, two eggs any-style our spin on an island classic  $11.50

           This place was pretty rad in general. Wasn't too busy on a Wednesday morning and the women servers greet you in their pajamas. Tight.   

I had the beef medium and it was cooked pretty perfectly. They must braze or grill the meat or something because it had the the most ridiculous flame licked crunch to it's edges. 

Gravy was Yaki sauce laced as advertised and was different than most beef based gravies, but I can dig that. 

I had the eggs over-medium and they were also cooked on point. I also like how they kept that egg run large and intact! It covered the whole dish so I got that egg with every bite Goddammit! 

Spam was another ode to its Native inception but I could take it or leave it. The normal combo is more my speed. 

Overall pretty impressed with this one. This goes up there with some of my favorite. Rise & Shine.....I see you!

Pretty disappointed in this one. To be fair I've had it better here before but it didnt really do much for me this time. Even with the Garlic rice upgrade it left me wanting. Gravys pretty standard. Eggs were cooked to my liking. The paddy was pretty whack and flavorless and the garlic rice's onions were too crunchy for how I get down. Step it up Stacks!

9Th Island Loco Moco: Egg Works

Looking for Vegas' best Loco Moco

Egg Works

9355 W. Flamingo Rd. #1
Las Vegas NV, 89147

*LOCO MOCO

A generous portion of "sticky white rice" topped with a homeade burger patty, delicious brown gravy and two eggs any style.  $9.50

            This is one of my favorites I think. Its like a grandma/cafeteria lady from the 60s made this. The gravys just got that cafeteria taste. You can taste the dusty books of an old school and smog from cars that were built back when they were American as fuck. I could see grandma ladling it with a perfectly distributed splat over a deliciously shitty beef patty.  

This paddy, however, tasted like the grandmas husband, Buster, cooked them in the fryer in the back! cooked like hes been doing it for years. Dips it in A-1 and licks the drops off his fingers after every dip. This fucking pile of cafeteria slop is everything I want in my Loco Moco.
