Egg Works, Hawaiian Style

If you’ve read my restaurant blog, you know that I’m a bit of a fan of the Egg Works/The Egg & I restaurants in Las Vegas. They’re friendly sort of places where tourists and locals alike mingle.

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!
