Good loco moco, a Hawaiian stack-up of ground beef, fried egg, and rice, comes down to the gravy – it must be rich and the right shade of brown. Aloha Grinds whips up a luscious sauce worthy of this staple. The Loco Moco stands out from other plate lunch dishes on the menu, like tough beef short ribs and peppery boneless pork ribs. The wait for food can be long, so order a cup of French-pressed Kona blend coffee to slowly sip while sitting on the couch in the front or at a small wooden table in the back. And make yourself at home: decked with Christmas lights and plastic leis, and furnished with a bookshelf full of old school board games, Aloha Grinds looks (and sounds) like the living room of any nearby Bay Ridge house, albeit with more "Aloha." Expect to hear scattering plastic baubles and ensuing giggles, teenage girls gabbing and gossiping, and dads typing away on their laptops on any given afternoon.Recommended Dishes
Loco moco, $6.95 for single, $8.95 for double.
