hawaiian loco moco spam

At my friend Martha’s party. It’s nearly 4AM (check out the microwave clock in the photo above!) Mostly the drunk brunch crew is still present. No playstation hawaiian loco moco spamkaraoke cds this time, but still a solid 6 hours of good partying thus far. (Excluding me cause I got stuck on a retarded N train and didn’t get in till about midnight.) Time to leave? Hell no, it’s time for LOCO MOCO YO!!! That’s right. Nothing like a late night Hawaiian snack being made in the middle of a party. Oh did I also mention it contains SPAM? That’s key my friend. Anyhow many of the drunk brunch crew were surfers in Hawaii in a previous life and this explains how this culinary gem washed up on the shores of Park Slope Brooklyn.

hawaiian loco moco spam Loco Moco Recipe (adapted) – makes 5-7 servings
2 cans of SPAM (you can use hamburger meat, but then you’re a wuss)
1 can of Heinz meat sauce gravy
4-5 cups white rice
5-7 slices of toast (multigrain is nice)
4-5 eggs
Several tablespoons of paprika or as Martha likes Old Bay Spice

Fire up the rice cooker. Slice the Spam and fry on both sides. (Or if you are lazy, just toss the spam into the rice cooker and let it cook within.) Scramble the eggs with the Old Bay / paprika and fry. Toast the bread. Heat the meatsauce. Assemble your Loco Moco: Toast, rice, spam, eggs, sauce. Eat.

Super Brunch @ Supercore Williamsburg Brooklyn NY http://www.plateoftheday.com/?p=414 http://www.plateoftheday.com/?p=414#respond Mon, 24 Mar 2008 22:39:35 +0000 http://www.plateoftheday.com/414/ Super Brunch @ Supercore Williamsburg Brooklyn NY


305 Bedford Avenue (bet S 1st and S 2nd)
Williamsburg Brooklyn NY

Hey – did you know that it’s already spring? March 20th was the official day of the Vernal Equinox! Based on the random mix of warm and cold days we’ve had in the past week in NY I know it’s been hard to tell. There was one sign of the start of the spring season that I could not help notice – the back yard space was open at Supercore! That is a great sign too because it now means you can enjoy Supercore’s music (live on Sundays), food, beer/cocktails, and free wireless from their nice relaxing outdoor space.

Much like the mix of music they play, Supercore dishes up a menu with a mix of Japanese and Western roots. Some would classify their food as Japanese Tapas but I’m not sure if I totally agree with this terminology. There are a lot of strictly western dishes, some supercore strictly Japanese dishes and then dishes that feature the best of both worlds. Over the weekend, I checked out brunch with a friend and we tried out the crepes and their famous super omelette. On the menu, the crepes are all listed as dessert crepes but you can custom order and get a savory one with ham and cheese if you so desire. I got the salmon and cheese omelette which comes with a side of potatoes, salad and sliced baguette. The omelette is obscenely huge – I figure at least 6-8 eggs in this at least. I would call this more of a quiche even.

I can’t wait till spring is in full bloom this year so I take advantage of all the great outdoor spaces in Brooklyn. I’m already thinking about the outdoor parties at Water Taxi Beach and the street fairs down in DUMBO. No worries – I will of course be diligently blogging about all of them for you!

If you’re a boozer I think you’ll like Bozu. With their creative cocktail menu featuring a sake wasabi vodka martini, several creative mojito variations, and a premium sake list to boot, Bozu will do the trick. I checked this place a few weeks ago with my friend Claire and we had a boozing good time scraping several dishes clean and washing it all down with a bottle of premium sake.

If you’re a food enthusiast (sorry I hate the word foodie), then you’ll LOVE Bozu because it just simply rocks. At rock it does. Like your favorite mixed tape that has your best of the best, Chef-Owner Makoto Suzuki created an eclectic menu with the ‘best of’ Japanese cuisine including sushi, salads, steaks, seafood, Japanese fried chicken, and udon noodle dishes. Mixed tapes? What year is this? LOL. I think it was funky Latin down tempo music they had playing that night that brought me back to 1991. Anyhow, if you’re a party of 2 or more, I’d recommend the Sushi Party Bomb plate ($18) which includes 12 pieces of sushi. (Bomb refers to the special unconventional round shape of the sushi). The Pork Betty ($7), thinly sliced pork belly cooked in sake and sweet soy with a dash of wasabi, is also a blast if you like fatty pork – and who doesn’t?

If you live in Manhattan, it’s worth the one stop on the L train to Bedford and the 3 or 4 blocks walk to Bozu. See you at the bar!
