The Cat’s Appetizer

From the After Tax Eats post. Finally got it out of The Cat’s phone.

Stage Hamachi Sashimi

Stage Hamachi Sashimi

Hamachi (Japanese Yellowtail) sashimi, shoyu gelée, orange and wasabi tobiko, wasabi “paint”, and radish salad. I think The Cat cut off the “paint”. I was impressed with the gelée, instead of shoyu liquid running all over the plate, the gelée stayed on the sashimi. Nice touch. And a different texture in the mouth as compared with shoyu “sauce”.

Almost as good as the sizzling ahi carpaccio at Ocean House, almost. :)

Enjoy. Eat well.

Squash!

From the garden of one of The Cat’s clients.

Can’t tell from the picture, but it’s kind of big.

Used half last night. Even that was a little much for our pan. Cooked it in batches, made a “sauce” of pre-cooked ground pork, peanut butter (the chunky kind), confectioner’s sugar (for the cornstarch), salt, sugar, and a dash of black pepper.

Dinner

Not enough time to fully simmer the squash to fall apart tender, but it was okay. The leftovers, which The Cat took for lunch, will be better.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Impromptu dinner. A little too late to go home and prep, cook, and eat. Something on the way. Jane’s Fountain (1719 Liliha Street, Honolulu, Hawai’i). For a local video portrait, check this out: http://www.kitv.com/news/hawaii/where-you-live/where-you-live-janes-fountain/24230092.

For The Cat, pork with bitter melon.

Of course had to order a small won ton min to share.

Everything served with the standard pickled cabbage and mac salad.

First time for The Cat. She approved. :)

Localized food at its best. More pictures (by others) here and here.

Hoppy Easter all!

Enjoy. Eat well.

After Tax Eats

The Cat celebrating her surviving the latest tax season.

Apparently Stage Restaurant had similar thoughts.

All food, 50 percent off. Happy Cat, Happy Mouse!

Dinner started with an amuse-bouche.

Cauliflower Purée, truffle, truffle oil, and Japanese Rice Crackers

Cauliflower Purée, truffle, truffle oil, and Japanese Rice Crackers (Complimentary)

Not bad, like eating very soft tofu, with a slight grassy taste. The Japanese rice crakers (Bubu Arare) gave a nice contrasting crunch.

Rolls

Potato on the left, pumpkin on the right. The Cat favored the potato, The Mouse, the pumpkin. Go figure.

First Stage

First Stage

Pulled pork soft tacos. Wasabi coleslaw, slow braised pork shoulder. Not bad, the wasabi was barely noticeable, pork done right.

Palate Cleanser

Palate Cleanser (Complimentary)

Wasabi and green apple sorbet. The Mouse didn’t mind it, The Cat not so much, the sorbet did cleanse the palate, and cleared the sinuses. :)

Second Stage

Second Stage

Home-style meatloaf, truffle mash potatoes, sautéed mushrooms, onions, brown gravy. What can I say, I like ground meat dishes (burgers, sausages, SPAM), especially with gravy. Heh heh.

Finale

Finale

Strawberry banana sorbet with fresh berries. Simple but refreshing. Made in-house.

Maple Blondies (Complementary)

Curtain Call (Complimentary)

Maple blondies, hmm, more like coffee cake or pound cake, not dense enough to be called a blondie (in my opinion). Still, not bad, and complimentary too.

The Cat ordered an appetizer that is picture worthy. Will post it as soon as I get it out of her phone. :)

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Mouse

A friend thought we needed a herb garden, so he built a shelf garden for us.

Besides the herbs, he planted long beans.

The Mouse was requested to do a stir-fry this past Sunday, The Cat did the prep work.

Long Beans with Pork

Added a serving of smashed cucumbers (sans the pepper).

A dish that lends itself to variations. Three ingredients, cucumbers, salt, and sugar. The rest is up to your imagination.

Enjoy. Eat well.
