Economics: At $7.75, the signature Pork Adobo Fried Rice Omelet dish was very reasonable. The massive omelet could easily be shared with two if not three people.

Atmosphere: Elena’s Restaurant is a small mom-and-pop family owned and operated business which opened in 1974. They have a brick and mortar restaurant in Las Vegas and Hawaii and three lunch wagons on the Island. We caught up with their food truck at the popular Eat the Street event in Honolulu Hawaii.

Taste: We tried the trademarked Pork Adobo Fried Rice Omelet. It was amazing. The omelet was chock full of delicious flavored pork adobe and golden brown fried rice and made to order.

Service: The service was top notch. We had the chance to meet and speak with Mellissa Cedillo, part of the 2nd generation and daughter of founders Elena and Theo Butuyan. She was super-friendly and a delight to speak with.
