Our Story

What is Eemas?

It Started, Quite Simply, Like This...

In Ilocano, a dialect of Northern Philippines, “Naimas,” is the perfect word to describe tasty, yummy, and delicious food. And like all words, people have shortened the expression simply to “Imas” pronounced, EEMAS!

Eemas Cuisine is a food stand that delivers popular Hawaiian fare utilizing local and sustainable ingredients. Our owner and food creator, Chef Flo, decided to establish EC to feature one of the cuisines that he fell in love with during his time and work experience in Las Vegas, Southern California, and Hawaii. EC takes the best and favorite foods of Hawaii, incorporates some fresh ingredients only found in the tristate area, and applies a culinary twist before introducing it to your palate. Eemas Cuisine's mission is to immerse you in the Aloha spirit with every delicious bite.

"An ingredient highlighted by the season and location simply combined with the right amount of spice, heat, and salinity…that’s what ‘delicious food’ is to me" - Chef Flo
