With over 30 varieties, Cafe 100 has been an institution for this iconic local favorite, the loco moco. It’s a dish composed of four simple building blocks, rice, hamburger patty or patties, gravy (lots of it) and a fried egg on top. Though most historical records indicate, the fried egg was introduced after the original concoction. I won’t dispute that. If the egg was an evolutionary step, so be it. It’s a magical combination. And at Cafe 100, they have that and are constantly trying out new combinations.
It’s sort of a drive-in where you park, order at the window, get your food, pick a table outside and pig out. Prices are very modest and although we got the “traditional” sizes, you can go for the original smaller sizes. That way you can try more. Food comes out pretty quick, so get that table ready. We had a decent size group and could have tried more varieties. But since it was our first time there, we had to go for the popular stuff. That worked out perfectly as it was more than enough food for us.
