Established restaurant Tango Contemporary Cafe, new owner/chef.

“Classic” Burger

Seven-ounce beef patty, grilled onion, bacon, sunny side fried egg, and side salad. The Mouse liked that the burger was complete, no need to order add-ons (bacon, egg, etc). Overall, pretty good. 🙂

Open-Faced Shrimp Salad on Croissant, Side Salad

Lots of fresh shrimp and veggies. Overall, not bad, could’ve used more dill herbs.

All in all, new owner, new chef, new staff, The Cat and The Mouse will wait a bit for “dust to settle” before going back. \ooo/

Be safe and well.

The Mouse really liked this version. Could taste the soup and onions without the cheese goo. Paws up.

Chef gave The Mouse two extra pies to take home. Mmm!

Be safe and well.

Dessert Plate

Lilikoi Meringue Tart (best on the plate), Chocolate Mousse Cake (second best), Carrot Pineapple Cake (third), Hot Cross Bun (really dry), Coconut Macaroon (honorable mention), Ginger Snap.

Musical Styling

Brunch music. Other than not too many people were paying attention, it is background music after all, the gig seemed idyllic (fresh air, cool breeze, sunshine). The Mouse left him a small tip just to let him know he was appreciated.

Be well and safe.

Diner Brunch

The Mouse wonders why is it when meeting with sales people, quite often it is a looong process. Ugh.

A necessary appointment with a salesperson. Two-plus hours.

Luckily The Cat and The Mouse learned after the first appointment (the first was over three hours).

Diner at the mall. Weekend brunch menu. Yay!

Loco Moco with Onions
Vegetable Omelet with Hash Brown

Can you guess who ordered what? Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

A “dangerous” question when talking with Chef H. The Mouse dropped off something for Chef H. (he just bought a new “toy” and The Mouse found an accessory thought he would like). Chef mentions he is making lemon biscuits for brunch service. The Mouse passed on the information to The Cat, and reservations were made form brunch. Hee hee.

Muesli and Lemon Biscuit

This is The Mouse’s bowl. the regular order added yogurt and Devonshire cream.

Abalone and Wild Mushroom Chowder
Tomato Salad

Chef topped the salad with several thick shavings of truffles. Mmm, a treat.

Of course, since we are at his kitchen, The Mouse asked for a few anchovies for the salad.

Anchovies
Kona Crab Eggs Benedict

Locally produced egg. The Cat nommed.

Slow Roasted Prime Rib

With potato and veggies. The Mouse nommed, and nommed the leftover too. 🙂

Tapioca Pudding
Mango Sorbet with Berries

Here’s the kicker. there were several cancellations and no-shows for brunch. Chef had extra biscuits, he sent us home with a box.

Lemon Biscuits

Thanks Chef H! Mmm! 🙂

More accessories on the way.

Stay safe and well.
