Birthday lunch for Mrs. P. at Mariposa, a milestone birthday (not revealing age). Hee hee. Chef P. made arrangements with Chef L. (executive chef), who trained under Chef P. for some specials.

Complimentary salad.

Seared Ahi Tuna Salad

Excellent start, dressing was the bomb. Nom!

Everyone except The Mouse ordered smoked pork chop.

Smoked Pork Chop

A bed of risotto, grilled vegetables, not sure what the condiment was, everyone more than liked. 😉

The Mouse went with his go-to order, hamburger, medium rare.

Mariposa Cheeseburger sans Cheese

The Mouse likes to order “regular” burgers at nice restaurants. Not fancy shmancy over the top “gourmet burger” (think truffles and Kobe), but a well executed burger. Chef L. did not fail to deliver. Nicely charred on the outside, perfectly pink on the inside. Mmm! 🙂

Complimentary dessert was peach meringue tarts with torched meringue. The Mouse thought he took a pic but did not. Fail. Sigh. Very good though.

Chef L. learned well. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

Ordered a take-home, raw hamburger from the steakhouse visit last weekend. The Mouse was curious, more so, the price was very reasonable for a 10 ounce patty.

The Patty

The Mouse salt and peppered, made a divot, and cooked the burger on medium heat, no sear.

Included with the order was a brioche bun, even better.

Assembled

The Mouse kept it simple, burger patty (cooked medium), yellow mustard, liver spread.

Stratified Pic

Mmm! The Mouse was extremely satisfied. Meat quality was out of this world, tender and juicy.

Sorry, no bite pic, after the first bite, too juicy, The Mouse got distracted. Given the opportunity, The Mouse would do it again. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

No, just different. The Mouse wanted to try. Two remnant slices of SPAM. Fried them up. At first, The Mouse was going to pick-up a “fancy” burger, but in the end, decided on a BK Impossible Whopper (two-fer deal). No shiso leaves as the addition might complicate the try. 🙂

Impossible Whopper with Fried SPAM

Thinking back the combination of SPAM on an Impossible Whopper might seem counter productive but The Mouse doesn’t think the king promoted it as a health food alternative, plus, The Mouse used SPAM lite. Hee hee.

The final result, The SPAM slices held their own against adding bacon. Not as crispy, but easier to bite, and, the distribution of SPAM over the burger was more consistent than adding bacon slices.

The Mouse would do it again. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

The Mouse wanted the maguro burger from Sakura Terrace but didn’t want to drive into town for it. The Mouse settled with a twofer from Burger King.

Burger King Big Fish with Shiso Leaves

Truthfully though, The Mouse thinks this worked out for the better. Adding shiso leaves to an almost already perfect dish would not have improved the dish a whole lot.

However, adding shiso leaves to a fast-food sandwich, the improvement was noticeable and appreciated. 🙂

And the bonus? The Mouse has a left-over Whopper for another time. Hee hee.

“All’s well that ends well.”

Stay safe and well.

Just a mini bento from the grocery store.
