Rutt’s Hawaiian Cafe

Rutt’s Hawaiian Cafe
11707 Washington Pl
Los Angeles, CA 90066

Rutt’s Hawaiian Cafe has been featured on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives, on the Food Network.  They used to be on Washington BLVD.  But, earlier in 2017, they moved to a bigger location on Washington PLACE.  Matter of fact just a few blocks west of Tito's Tacos!

It's an interesting restaurant.  On the east side of the building is their "express service"  There are some tables and a window to order food.  The main dining area has a bar and tables spread out.

Salmon Royales, $10.45 3 egg scrambled omelette over white rice, onions, bean sprouts, green onions, with a sweet Hawaiian roll.

This is an weird dish.  The eggs, rice, bean sprouts and onions were pretty bland.  But, the salmon was salty as hell, and there was a very small amount of salmon!  If you put teriyaki sauce this dish had some flavor.  But, overall not a good dish.  There is a lot of food, but most of it is rice, which is inexpensive, and veggies.  Very little salmon, which is the reason you're paying the $10.45.

Service is below average.  They are friendly when I asked if this was a new location.  But I was never asked how the food was.  They never refilled my drink.

I wouldn't go back to Rutt's Hawaiian Cafe again. At best mediocre food and below average service, no thank you!
