With burgers made from 100 percent grass-fed beef, locally grown on Kulana Ranch on the Big Island, Momo Burger has become the object of lunchtime cravings. Momo’s website boasts that grass-fed beef is “lower in calories, contains more healthy omega-3 fats, more vitamins A and E, higher levels of antioxidants, and up to seven times the beta-carotene,” making their burgers “[t]he healthiest you can possibly get if you are going to eat a burger.”
Some menu items have an Asian influence, such as the Kim Chee Burger ($7), made with ko chu jang aioli, kim chee slaw, kalbi glaze and toasted sesame, and its Teriyaki Burger ($7), made with teriyaki glaze, negi aioli, caramelized onions and American cheese with both items also available as hot dogs ($4). Momo also offers each of their burgers in “slider” sizes, which are equivalent to about half the size of a regular burger.
Gyros are on the menu as well, such as the Bulgogi Gyro ($6.50), made with Korean beef, spicy tzatziki, lettuce, tomato and red onion.
Noticeably, this favored food truck no longer operates on campus, but to find out where you can get Momo, visit its Facebook page or Twitter, @momoburgerhi
