Or, lomi salmon, the poor Mouse version.

Lomi lomi salmon, a luau staple. I have no archaeological nor anthropological evidence, just a feeling that lomi salmon is a westernized version of poké.

The Mouse loves both poké and lomi salmon

Anyway, salted salmon (main ingredient of lomi salmon) and poké are luxury items rarely seen, if at all, at our house. When I have the munchies for lomi salmon, have to make do with the Mouse canned version.

Chopped onions, green onions, diced tomato, and canned salmon.

Pink salmon, this time around. A distant relative of real lomi salmon, but, close your eyes and it kinda works. Now, if I only had poi. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

I Couldn’t Feel My Tongue

Can you see?

My Tongue is Numb

My Tongue is Numb

(A sellfie!) Hee hee!

Lunch at Chez Kenzo today.

Shabu Shabu Salad

Shabu Shabu Salad

Thin slices of boiled pork on a bed of mixed greens tossed with a parsley vinaigrette.

Restaurant has a house-made yuzu pepper paste that usually accompanies its chicken yuzu bao bun sliders. I will ask to get a small portion with any of my orders, chicken yuzu bao buns or not.

The pepper used is the Szechuan pepper or sanshō, although not especially spicy, it’s known to numb the tongue and mouth

This time, server gave me an extra portion.

Not wanting to waste, I used all of it. My tongue was numb for a while. I think the numbness may have creeped to my brain, was a little fuzzy in the afternoon (what else is new). :)

Enjoy. Eat well.

Friday Food Day

Friday turned out to be a pretty good day, food-wise.

Started with a SPAM musubi.

SPAM Musubi with Egg

SPAM Musubi with Egg

It was okay. The slight char of the SPAM was good, and the little omelet was a plus, but the ratio of rice and SPAM was off. Sorry, kind of a snob when it comes to SPAM musubi. Would I buy it again? Maybe, not on a regular basis though.

Lunch was a change-up from the usual for the past couple of months (lau lau and kalua pork)

Mix Plate

Mix Plate

Blackened tuna with sweet wasabi cream and fried tuna poke, no rice, all greens. From the same lunch wagon. Both were done well given the health department’s requirement that food served from mobile food businesses cannot be “raw”, except for salads. Both fish were a little tough (just a little), but the flavors compensated for the lack of “rareness”.

Dinner with the cuz’s (the D&G cuzs, not the B&P cuzs) and friends at Haleiwa Joe’s at Haiku Gardens. Got there late, only had time to order and eat. Went with a salad.

Ginger Peanut Chicken Salad

Ginger Peanut Chicken Salad

A lightly marinated, grilled chicken breast, sliced & served on fresh baby greens with a spicy ginger dressing & roasted peanuts. The greens and dress was good, although did not get too much of the spicy ginger part, the chicken was more like chicken at a seminar lunch … meh. Lighted up the dish with the mini flashlights (too dark, iPhone 3G no flash :))

Sticky Ribs

Sticky Ribs

 

The Cat’s order. ½ rack of baby back pork ribs cooked in our soy-ginger sauce, char-grilled. Served with rice & green papaya salad. The ribs were fall off the bone tender. The Cat at first didn’t care for the smoky taste but got used to it. The Mouse likes smoky.  The green papaya salad? Next time leave it to the experts … pass. Definitely would order the ribs again.

All in all, not a bad Friday.

Have a safe Memorial Day tomorrow (if it is a holiday for you).

Enjoy. Eat well.
