I was lucky enough to have a random Wednesday day-off yesterday and was ready to take full advantage of it. For quite some time I’ve been craving Hawaiian food especially because when I was living in Seattle, I could always count on Kevin to go to Kona Kitchen with me. I decided to Quora question where I could find the best Hawaiian food in the Bay Area and my coworker suggested I try Takahashi Market in San Mateo. It’s not exactly right in my backyard, but I made the drive anyways because I could really go for a warm meal of Loco Moco on a cold and rainy day. I hadn’t been to this place before so I didn’t know what to expect. It really is just a market place and I think most people just order take out, however, there are few tables outside that you can sit and eat at. I considered just taking out and driving all the way back home, but no one really wants cold loco moco! So I bundled up and hunkered down and ate my meal. It was worth it. Believe it or not, this was my first time actually order loco moco despite having plenty of Hawaiian meals in the past. I loved the beef patty, the rice smothered in gravy and of course the sunny side up egg. It’s the perfect brunch meal and I can’t wait until the next time I come back so I can order their unagi and ahi poke!
