A Hawaiian-style cafe in Little Tokyo, Aloha Cafe serves up some of the best loco moco we've had in Los Angeles. A mountain of white rice covered with hamburger patties, grilled onions, eggs and lots of brown gravy, loco moco is a starchy, meaty, hearty mess. At Aloha Cafe, the gravy is rich, smooth and a burnished dark brown that's never bland or overly salted. Other entrees include Kalua Pork, a pig that's slow-cooked 'til it's smoky, chicken teriyaki and char siu. For dessert, try shaved ice or a house-made macadamia nut cheesecake.
