My FAVORITE meal we had during our trip to Hawaii! I'd seen lots of videos about Helena's, and it definitely lives up to the hype. Helena's serves traditional Hawaiian food in a family atmosphere. Our server was super friendly and helpful when we had questions about the menu. We ordered one of the lunch combos, which came with short ribs, kalua pork, lomi lomi salmon, and haupia pudding. We also added lau lau pork and a side of mac salad! I was really excited to try their dry aged short ribs, which were delicious and juicy. They had a nice char to them, although they were a bit chewier than I would've liked. The lau lau pork is a MUST GET, it's a piece of super tender pork wrapped in taro leaves. It had a delicious smokey flavor and really great fatty bits. The mac salad at Helena's is probably the best mac salad I've ever had! Great meal, I only wish we had gone again during our trip!

OMG the short ribs are amazing! So fresh and tasty! I've been trying to find something close to it since coming back to the Bay Area but nothing compares! The kalua pig is tasty too but the star of the show for me is the short ribs lol.
