Good guess Calum, but it’s not an egg McMuffin! The answer was Loco Moco - a classic Hawaiian “plate lunch” that typically consists of a beef patty and fried egg over white rice, drowned in lashings of brown gravy. Importing the island-style dish to LA has recently resulted in a pretty funny culture clash. For those that have never heard of the traditional Loco Moco, pointed out that the word “moco” means “snot” or “boogers” in the Spanish language… and we all know what “loco” means. Crazy snot burger anyone?!
