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.

This past Wednesday’s lunch.

Japanese Hamburger Steak Plate

Home-style hamburger patty topped with grated daikon, daikon sprouts, and tangy Ponzu sauce.

The grated daikon and ponzu sauce complimented the hamburger very well.

Stay safe and well.

Basalt

The Mouse has been wanting to try Basalt at Dukes Lane for a while. But being located in Waikiki and not knowing where to park kinda hindered the try.

Since location is practically empty, The Cat and The Mouse finally tried, especially since prices were lowered for take-out plus an additional percentage off.

Packaging

.

Pork Ribs

Spicy pineapple slaw, waffle fries, BBQ sauce. We substituted rice for the fries. The Cat was impressed with the amount of food, the price, and the packaging. Good job!

The Mouse had a burger. Again.

Basalt Burger

8oz wagyu beef patty, cheddar cheese, brioche bun, lettuce, tomato, sweet onion, Hawaiian Island dressing, french fries. The Mouse 86’ed the cheese and substituted rice for fries. Medium rare. Excellent.

Executive Chef Keith Kong recommended dessert.

Grand Marnier Mousse Cake

Dark chocolate devil’s food cake, raspberry sauce, mixed berries. Rich and decadent. Nom!

While the restaurant still offers take-out as they slowly re-open for sit down service, the discount is pau. Sigh.

Still, the prices are reasonable. When things settle down, The Cat and The Mouse probably will venture into the tourist jungle for a sit down.

Stay safe and well.
