In keeping with the standards of Japanese Cuisine, rice is used as a staple starch, finished off with the hamburger, gravy, and fried eggs to create a dish that does not require the preparation time of bento.

Loco Moco can be found in various forms on many Pacific islands from Hawaii to Samoa to Guam and Saipan.

Loco Moco is also the name of a Hawaii-based restaurant chain featuring Hawaiian rice bowl dishes.
