It's like local, japanese food. And the saimin/wonton mein is much better than the Loft.

I still miss the Oxtail Soup from Kam Bowl which closed a few years ago.

Cool! Just wanted to make a note of the distinction here so that visitors don't get surprised with squid luau when they are expecting teri beef!

It's not as good as Ono's, Helena's or Young's, but it's as close as we can get.

Re: YAFT: Do you like Hawaiian food?

Just had Loco Moco yesterday, though not at L&L. I don't go there much now that my kids went vegetarian.

Loco Moco is a combination of really plain elements: hamburger patty, white rice, brown gravy, egg. But the combination just works for me, as long as there's enough gravy to go around. The one I had yesterday had more flavor in its burger than some others, so that helps as well.

But I admit I'm a real fan of gravy and rice. My mom always served rice at Thanksgiving, and I preferred putting gravy on that instead of the mashed potatoes.

I didn't know anything about the place until I heard about it on a podcast I listen to (it's called Doughboys, btw, and it's hilarious. People in this thread would like it, I think.).

Anyway, there's one right by my house that I went to last weekend, and I was overwhelmed by the choices. They have the main menu, then like a sub-menu on the bottom, then another menu on the wall next to the register...

I ended up getting the Moco Loco, mostly because it seemed like the most unhealthy option, so it was a no brainer. It was ok, but not great. But, I saw a lot of Spam options on those menu's, too, which I will definitely go back to check out.

Some locations are better than others, and more independent places (like "Aloha bbq", a local place) are better than any L&L.

You should check out this place next time your in the Bay Area. IMHO, it's better than L&L.

Re: YAFT: Do you like Hawaiian food?

I had L & L the other day. It's pretty good and it's close by, so I go there occasionally. I usually get the chicken katsu plate and they give me so much it takes me a couple days to finish it.

Re: YAFT: Do you like Hawaiian food?

I made another trip to L&L the other day and got the chicken katsu and spam masubi.

The chicken was really good, and they always do their rice perfectly. If I go back and I'm ever undecided about what to get, I've got this as my fall back meal. It was great.

The masubi...not so much. It's the seaweed. I don't like it. It tastes musty, dirty. Maybe we just don't get the freshest seaweed here in Az, but I'll skip the masubi from here on out.

The Loco Moco I just got was two eggs and two hamburger patties, with no smaller option on the menu, so it lasted me a lunch and the following breakfast.

I like L&L fine, but it's the only Hawaiian franchise in our area. There are a handful of independents, some better and some worse. The one just a few blocks from my house closed down, and the next closest is my least favorite.

Thanks for the tip! Maybe I can grab lunch when I'm exploring new comics stores.

Going on my yearly HI trip soon and my brother told me that Jelly's Comics closed down last January. Both locations....kinda sad about that. My favorite store in Oahu.

Idk where you are in the Valley (I should probably just assume East Valley), but over here in the West Valley, there's a really great, locally owned Hawaiian joint:

North Valley, actually. I17 and Happy Valley-ish.

I do some work over by the 101 and T-bird every couple weeks. I might have to jump up to Bell and check that place out. Thanks for the recommendation!

Also, I went back to L&L yesterday. Third time this week. This is getting out of hand. Got the sausage, eggs, and rice. Absolutely nothing to write home about.

Re: YAFT: Do you like Hawaiian food?

I went to a place called Teri Hawaii today. It was...OK but I'll choose L&L over it any day. Smaller portions, more expensive and not as tasty.

For what you pay for a single spam musubi, you can make your own much cheaper.

They're not the same since new ownership took over years ago. Shave ice is still ok tho.

That sucks. I go to HI every two or three years, and I only discovered both Jelly's my last time there, but I'm sorry to see them go. There are just not that many comics stores around.

Teri Hawaii is near my place. It's not the best. You could have gone a couple miles further West and hit The Loft on Artesia and Van Ness which is VERY good or any number of better Hawaiian places. King's Hawaiian: The Local Place is good too.

I've been to The Loft in Torrance, but not the one on Artesia. I love that place too.
I want to get to King's Hawaiian at some point. It's on my short list.

Re: YAFT: Do you like Hawaiian food?

Loco moco doesn't look like it'd be too difficult to fix. And Kings Hawaiian bread is easy to get at the store.
