Ask locals and they will all tell you the same thing: Kihei Caffe is by far one of the best breakfast spots on the island, so of course, they serve some of the most delicious Loco Moco available! The restaurant opens at 5 a.m. and allows diners to order breakfast all day long. You’ll love their juicy Loco Moco with a tomato on the side. We recommend asking for a freshly squeezed orange juice to go with it!
Da Kitchen is a great place if you’re looking for island-style food in a modern atmosphere. It’s been a local favorite for twenty years and serves two mouth-watering versions of the Loco Moco: the Notorious B.I.G Moco with chili, which is mad eup of two eggs, mushrooms, onions, spam, cheese, bacon, Portuguese sausage, and fried rice. For a less traditional version of the dish, order the Da Kine Moco with Teri chicken, teriyaki beef, fish tempura, two eggs, mushrooms, and white rice.
