Bento

Menu

From Shokudo (1585 Kapiolani Boulevard, Honolulu, Hawai’i). Only available for lunch.

Healthy Bento Box

Healthy Bento Box

Sorry to say, did not meet The Cat’s expectations. Not well made. Plus the sashimi was kind of gray (not “healthy” looking).  The Cat will be avoiding the place for a while.

To give the place credit, they did replace the sushi with “healthier” looking slices.

I fared better.

Chicken Karaage Bento

Chicken Karaage Bento

My only “complaint”, the chicken was smeared with a house made spicy tartar sauce, kinda like my fried chicken “nekid”.

Both bento came with miso soup.

Thought this picture was one of my better ones in a looooong time. :)

Have a nice long weekend (if you are so lucky).

Eat well.

The Kitchen Sink

Or cleaning out the refrig. The Cat’s noodles tonight (prepared by The Mouse).

The Cat’s Noodles

Similar to last night’s. Tonight’s noodles had an egg and leftover shoyu pork added. Also, if you look closely, there are two different types of pasta, one noodle length, and one short.  Not enough of one, so, a little bit of both.

Not much happening today, food-wise.

Eat well.

Noodle Day

For The Cat. Lunch at Iyo Udon (cheap eats).

Kitsune Udon

Kitsune Udon

Udon noodles in a hot broth topped with “Kitsune-age” (fried tofu skin).

Dinner was one of my “franken-meals”.

"I Dunno" Noodles

“I Dunno” Noodles

Thin spaghetti, dried greens, dried seaweed, goji berries, lightly pickled cucumbers, Kauai sea salt, and toasted sesame oil. What do I call it? “I dunno.” :)

I guess I still prefer rice. My choices at Iyo Udon?

Rice!

Rice!

One spicy tuna onigiri and two inari sushi. The rice in the inari is different from regular onigiri, vinegar and sugar are added to the salted rice. Oh yeah, and toasted white sesame seeds.

Is it me or do the toasted sesame seed look like (use your imagination). Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Slow Food

Rainy day today. Good time to prepare “slow food”.

Boiled Peanuts

Boiled Peanuts

No gourmet preparation, water, salt, pepper. Simmer for three to four hours (until soft).

Bacon “jam”, one of my work in progress. This time, more like a ragout.

Bacon Ragout

Bacon Ragout

Bacon (naturally), diced onion, raisins, capers (with a little of the brine), Shao Xing wine, apple cider vinegar, turbinado sugar, and peanut butter. Kind of different than some of the recipes on the internet. No food processing or hand blending, all chunky baby! :)

Turned out pretty good. Toasted sour dough bread, the bacon thingy, tomato jam, and shiso leaves.

Mouse Food

Mouse Food

Probably will work on freshly cooked pasta too. Or with hot rice with an easy over egg. :)

Enjoy. Eat well.

Food Mash-Up

Brought in by a co-worker today.

Pork Adobo Manapua

Pork Adobo Manapua

Filled with pork adobo, not char siu.

Bite View

Bite View

Pretty good, not bad. Kinda used pork adobo with rice, an interesting change of pace. Not sure where he picked the manapua up from. Brought in one for each co-worker.

Not to look a gift horse in the mouth, still prefer the char siu manapua from Char Hung Sut. :) Old habits die hard.

Enjoy. Eat well.
