My most recent sojourn was to the Egg Works restaurant ‘way out west of the Las Vegas Strip, in a commercial area near some residential complexes.
The thing I like about Egg Works is their varied menu. They have all the things you’d expect, especially egg dishes – any way you like them, in skillets, in scrambles, in Benedicts. They have a good Mexican-flavored menu, plus all the pancakes, waffles and French toasts your heart desires.
They also cater to Hawaii tastes in particular. They serve … LOCO MOCO! Two styles, only $8.50 each. And, they have Aloha Shoyu if you want it.
Here are their menu descriptions:
“Loco Moco: A generous portion of ‘Sticky white rice’ topped with a homemade burger patty, delicious brown gravy, and two eggs any style.” Yep, that’s loco moco, all right.
“Haole Loco: A generous portion of ‘Sticky white rice’ topped with a homemade burger patty, Egg Work’s famous country gravy, and two eggs any style.” That’s for you chicken-fried steak fans who need something a little more familiar.
Finally, they also offer an “Island Favorite: Your choice of grilled SPAM or Portuguese Sausage, two eggs any style, and stick white rice. Served with a Homemade Banana Nut Muffin, or toast.” So if you’ve been in Vegas with your Caucasian friends and need a Hawaii fix, y’all can eat here.
Now … I personally am not going to drive all the way there for a Hawaiian style meal; there are plenty of places in downtown that have them. But who knows? I enjoy Egg Works, and someday I just may be in the mood for a Hawaiian breakfast when I go there.
Aloha nui loa!
