Bento! #117: Rokomoko Don / ロコモコ丼 / Loco Moco Rice Bowl

480 yen for this big bowl from 3F.

It's a really deep bowl, apparently. If I filled this with water, my food would
be drowning already.

As per Wikipedia, "Loco moco is a traditional meal in Hawaiian cuisine. There are many variations, but the essential loco moco consists of white rice, topped with a hamburger patty, a fried egg, and brown gravy." Based on that, this one is a Japanese version of it. Why? Well, there's white rice. There's one hamburger patty, made from pork most likely but hey, it's still a burger patty. There's gravy - more dark brown than just brown, but it's still brown gravy. Or well, it might be gravy. And then there's egg. But, that's the thing, it doesn't look anything like fried egg. That non-fried egg I guess gives this a Japanese touch. Also, the gravy tastes more like... Guess what. ...It tastes more like another Japanese favorite, "demi soosu" or demi-glaze sauce. This "donburi" also comes with a chunk each of carrot and asparagus.
