Ride the gravy train

Loco moco, Mac Daddy Island Grill

One recent evening at a holiday tree lighting, I treated myself to Loco Moco ($12) from Mac Daddy Island Grill food truck, a decadent Hawaiian beast of a dish with scoops of sticky rice topped with a juicy burger patty and runny fried egg and smothered in salty, homemade brown gravy. Food trucks provide the perfect opportunity to try unfamiliar cuisines. They’re also an excellent excuse to enjoy fun, over-indulgent comfort dishes usually relegated to holidays or after-party binges. Enter Loco Moco: It’s a pure guilty pleasure, and the impossibly savory plate was quickly devoured. I only wish I had grabbed extra napkins. Various locations, facebook.com/Mdislandgrill;
