Most fast food joints in Hawaii have local style breakfast choices like the popular combination of portuguese sausage, eggs and rice. This morning my friend somehow convinced me to go to Burger King instead of having my usual loco moco on the weekend. He said that they have really good portuguese sausage… so, I went (hey, at least I get a food blog). There’s only one Burger King in Hilo, right across Longs.
I ordered the Portuguese Sausage Platter Combo ($4.28 including a coffee).
The platter came with a generous serving of rice, eggs, and three thick slices of portuguese sausage. The sausage had a great full and spicy flavor, and it was cooked just right, a little crisp on the outside… one of the better portuguese sausages I’ve tasted. Much better texture and flavor than McDonalds. Rice was nicely cooked, and the eggs tasted like fresh eggs. Pretty impressive for a fast food place.
The coffee was kind of weak, but the cover had a cool tab that goes back and forth really easily.
…doesn’t every fast food place have its own crew of coffee drinkers?
