Soup and Salad

Chef H’s restaurant back to doing take-out again after mayor ordered lockdown (no sit down restaurant service) for at least two weeks. One positive is Chef H’s food is a little more wallet accessible, and available (lunch hours added).

The Cat’s Saturday lunch by Chef H.

Wild Mushroom Chowder

A touch of cream, a splash of sherry wine.

Cobb Salad

Red wine & buttermilk dressings, iceberg & romaine lettuce, blue cheese, tomato, avocado, local egg, bacon bits.

The Mouse had a lazy day and took catnaps. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

No, nothing official, just what The Mouse was eating yesterday Friday. And yes he forgot to press the “publish” button, again. Sigh.

Breakfast, from 7-Eleven.

Kalua Pork and Cabbage over Rice

Kinda appropriate since The Mouse worked on the warehouse’s accounts receivable for 7-Eleven the whole day. Hee hee.

Lunch was home-made leftovers.

Braised Style Kalua Pork with Zucchini

Wasn’t bad, but the dish could have been helped with shredded sun-dried tomatoes added to the mix. None in the pantry and the warehouse doesn’t carry the product. No matter.

Stay safe and well.

First, yesterday there was a power outage, no way to post. 😦

Ok, onward.

Last Sunday’s lunch, original plan was to go to the art museum, The Cat’s choice. Their website was a little confusing. The Cat and The Mouse took a chance and drove to town. Unfortunately the museum and attached cafe was closed.

Plan B. Sakura Terrace. From previous post, timing, everything.

The Mouse got his omurice.

Omurice Lunch

Miso soup and takuan. Mmm.

The Cat ordered maguro steak bento.

Maguro Steak Bento

The maguro (tuna) was lightly seared (still sashimi inside) and covered with a grated radish ponzu combination. The Cat liked. For the price, it was a lot of food. Quality was excellent. The Cat wants to return.

A little dessert.

Coconut Sorbet

Light and fresh.

Quality ingredients, cooked with respect. Awesome job.

The exterior of the restaurant is surrounded by bamboo and greens, almost garden-like. Which, coincidentally is the environment of the museum cafe. So kinda a good plan b. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

The Mouse was craving Chinese roast pork (and a little char siu). A quick stop at the neighborhood Chinese take-out.

The Mouse’s Dinner

Manapua, shiso leaves, apple, steamed rice cake, steamed pork hash. Mmm!

Local style, less dainty, more hearty. Hee hee.

Also picked up a good amount of Chinese roast pork.

Chinese Roast Pork

The Mouse’s layered bento. A few pieces of Chinese roast pork, frozen spinach, braised shredded pork.

Savory Parfait?

Really not a parfait, but you get the idea. Three minutes in the micro at the warehouse, the gelatin from the braised pork melting into the spinach. Nom! Then the Chinese roast pork in the bottom as an extra treat. Mmm! Happy Mouse.

Stay safe and well.

Odds and Ends

Slow-braised, pork shoulder, kalua pork flavor.


The braising liquid gelled nicely. 🙂

Popcorn, local vendor, weekend special.

Caramel, Furikake

The Mouse preferred the furikake, the caramel just a touch too sweet. But still good. Nom!

The Mouse’s “cleaning out” the pantry, refridge, and freezer, “throw it all together and hope for the best” bowl for The Cat.


Elbow macaroni, crab paste scrambled egg, peas, corn, chopped spinach, chicken broth, crushed peanuts. The Cat liked. 🙂

Stay safe and well.
