Detour

Had to do some business in town yesterday.

Planned to try a new-ish vegetarian Chinese lunch spot. Got to town too early. Not about to wait.

Ended up at a Ahi Lovers (Yelp link: http://www.yelp.com/biz/ahi-lovers-honolulu). Paid a dollar extra for miso soup and salad.

Any big plans for tomorrow?

Enjoy. Eat well.

Must be okay, the Italian restaurant up the street uses a beef/pork blend for their loco-moco patty.

Simply seasoned, salt, pepper, gin. Not pretty, just food to get through some relatively cool weather.

The Cat had her version of comfort food.

Ham Hock Turnip Rice Soup with Greens

The white broth almost reminds me of tonkatsu ramen broth. Another dish for chilly nights. :)

It’s Friday! Yeah!

Enjoy. Eat well.

In addition to the dessert being veggie, it was also raw (think uncooked).

So, the effect of all that vegetables? Let’s just say my insides were “cleansed” as it were and leave it at that. Hee hee.

Gung hee fat choy Master W and K, and thanks for the “cleaning”. :)

How’s your new year going so far?

Enjoy. Eat well.
