56th Annual Hawaii County Fair

56th Hawaii County Fair

Wooohooo, the fair is in town! Glad to say, the loco mocos were much better than last year (which isn’t saying much, since last year was really bad). I’m just glad that someone else was doing the loco mocos. Good reppin’ Keaukaha!

The prices, though, were a lot steeper… still worth the better loco moco.

56th Hawaii County Fair Fried Rice Loco Moco

We ordered and shared the “midget special” — ironic no? 2 hamburger patties, 2 eggs, 1 big bowl of fried rice, and gravy ($8). It was pretty huge, and it filled us both up. The fried rice was killaz! Nice pieces of ham and bacon and seasoned well. The next best thing were the eggs… they were so fresh and rich that the yolk was almost orange. Only thing about this loco moco were the burgers. They were premade, but they were tender and tasted ok. The gravy was standard brown gravy… tasted like the one Freddy’s uses. Even the burger tasted like the one Freddy’s uses. Anyway, we were happy and cleaned off the plate. :)


  • Burger: 18/30pts
  • Gravy: 20/30pts
  • Egg: 20/20pts
  • Rice: 22/20pts (bonus points)

Fresh Crepes Kalbi Plates Poke to your taste!

There were other vendors too. There was even a poke truck. Nani Mau was also there offering this yummy looking prime rib plates for $9, which looked like a great deal. Great looking crepes making them fresh in front of you. Blane’s bentos. Kalbi plates for $6.

Swing Bev didn’t want to ride this one

I didn’t even get to go on a ride. I spend all my money on food nowadays… *sigh*

    Looking at the pictures from last year versus this year, i can tell there’s a big difference.
    I don’t normally like loco moco but i’d eat it if it looked like that!

    I’m glad you finally got the FAMOUS County Fair loco! Maybe someone in the Waiakea pirates booth read this blog and said the famous Hilo loco critic did a write up on them. Keep up the good work James.

    [...] Ever since the 55th Annual County Fair, it’s been my civic duty to review the loco moco at the local county fair. I call it quality control. The loco moco at the 55th was one of the worst loco mocos ever. Impressively, they did a decent job on the 56th (last year). [...]
