Dinner at The Cat and The Mouse’s favorite place, friend’s birthday.

First:

Abalone Soup

Split pea. Inventive chef.

Second:

Iced Seafood

Lobster, sashimi, poke, etc. oh my! Nom!

Third:

Salad

The Cat and guest had Caesar, Chef changed up The Mouse’s dressing to a red wine blend because of The Mouse’s dairy issue. The Mouse did get anchovies. 🙂

Fourth:

Portabello Mushroom Crusted Salmon

Balsamic vinegar glaze, tomato coulis, fiddle head fern, oven roasted tomato. The salmon soft like buttah. Mmm.

Intermezzo:

Meyer’s Lemon Sorbet

Fifth:

Snake River Farm Kurobuta Pork

Truffle madeira sauce, haricot vert beans, mushrooms. One of the best pork dishes outside of pork belly The Mouse experienced. Mmm!

Sixth:

Fresh Strawberry Jello with Fresh Mint and Gelato

The chef explained to us his fruit extraction machine that steams the fruit and extracts pure juice. He hauled it from Germany a long time ago. The Mouse wonder if the machine could work on mango. Hee hee.

Chef usually makes epic chef’s choice meals but this one was Tolkien epic. Thank Chef H!

Stay safe and well.

The famous Mr. Lee burger:

Mr. Lee Burger

The Mouse posted about this burger before, still a favorite.

Deluxe, grilled onions (really nice touch), lettuce, tomato. Enhanced with probably the last of the shiso this season.

The almost famous Chef H lockdown special burger:

Chef H Burger

With accouterments.

Accouterments

The Mouse posted about this before too.

Local beef, applewood smoke bacon, cheddar cheese, caramelized sweet onions, lettuce, tomato, steak fries.

Minus the fries, The Mouse thinks a least four Mr. Lee burgers for the cost of one Chef H burger. Fair comparison, The Mouse thinks not. Both are great in their category and The Mouse enjoys both. Mr. Lee’s just a little more often. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

Rabbit Raviolo

Chef H made for The Cat and The Mouse. The Mouse thinks Chef had some extra time on his hands, dining room closed, take-out only.

Vacuum Pack

Chef H made it easy, drop bag in boiling water for 10-15 minutes, cut pack and serve. The Mouse followed directions.

Rabbit Raviolo with Cranberry Sauce

The Mouse loves dumplings. This was no exception. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

Another epic meal from one of our favorite chefs. A couple of weeks ago.

Amuse Bouche

House cured salmon. Mmm.

Pate Feuilletee En Escargot

Helix escargots, herb butter; cradled in a puff pastry.

Sauteed Rougie Foie Gras A L’ananas

The Mouse is definitely butchering the spelling and accents, sorry.

Robust foie gras, pineapple pan sauce, watercress, tomato, pickled red onion. Of the dishes, The Mouse liked this one the most.

Napolean of Kunoa Beef Tenderloin

Kona crab, pacific abalone, truffle Madeira sauce, salted lemon risotto, asparagus. A close second favorite.

Chocolate Souffle

Creme anglaise.

Memorable meal. Thanks Chef H! 🙂

Stay safe and well.

Michel’s at the Colony Surf. Chef’s choice.

Amuse Bouche

Salmon tartar on toast. If Chef allowed, The Mouse could’ve had a plate of them. Really nom!

Soup

Normally, Chef presents the famous lobster bisque, a change up. Good thing The Mouse packed lactose pills, he went through several. Hee hee.

Salad Course

Caesar salad. The bestest. The Mouse is spoiled. Other Caesar salads are no comparison (in The Mouse’s opinion).

Fish Course

Salmon, done excellently. The Cat usually shies away from salmon, she feels often times overcooked. This was perfect. Paws up.

Intermission

Pineapple yuzu sorbet. The Mouse needs a gallon of this. Hee hee.

Meat Course

Wagyu rib steak with truffle shavings. Melt in da mouth!

Dessert #1

Souffle! The Mouse’s request. Nom!

Dessert #2

Cherries Jubilee. Chef usually presents Bananas Foster, in The Mouse’s opinion, he likes the jubilee ever so slightly better. Paws up!

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Mouse
