We have several Ruby Tuesday gift cards (long story). Thought we’d use a couple last night.

App and Salads

App and Salads

Spicy Fish Tacos Grilled fresh and filled with lettuce, cheddar cheese, pico de gallo, sour cream, and cilantro. Finished with a drizzle of spicy ranch. Got the tacos off the happy hour menu.

Dinner and Dessert

Dinner and Dessert

California Chicken Crispy Flatbread lemon marinated chicken, sliced avocado, arugula, red peppers, cheese, and cilantro oil.

BBQ Kalua Pork Sandwich Kalua pork tossed in our classic BBQ sauce on a toasted wheat bun with coleslaw and onion straws. Served with Fries. Most of the pork got taken home for The Cat’s lunch today.

Mudd Pie Oreo cookie crust layered with Fudge, Mocha Ice cream and a Co ee mousse. Topped with Slivered Almonds and drizzled with chocolate sauce.

All the food probably cost less than one entrée during The Cat’s trip. Talk about sticker shock.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid

This ended up in our freezer (long story).

Bag

Bag

Part of the writing on the bag: USDA exempt; for Buddhist religion. Uhmm okay. Wait … what does USDA exempt mean?

Inside, a whole, frozen, silkie chicken.

Ewwwww

Ewwwww

Head and feet attached. Ick!

Supposed to be good for soup. The Cat thought about cutting it in half to cook two different times … but it was one solid “chunk”.

Only thing we could do.

Make Soup

Make Soup

Threw it in our largest pot, filled the pot with water, set it on simmer, and went to work.

Ten or eleven hours later, house smelling of chicken soup, took out the “carcass” (luckily, it stayed in one piece), added goji berries, pinch of salt, dash of bourbon, and wakame seaweed …

Soup did taste a little different, still chicken soup to me.

Of course, I had to add green onions to mine.

I think the color, and the head threw me for a loop. Alfred Hitchcock, you still making movies? Have I got a prop for you. Ewww, Ick.

Chicken soup for the soul? More like chicken soup for the dark side. Hee hee hack snort.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Stomach is 95 percent back to normal. I think once the nasty clam left stomach reset itself. Today, stomach was gassy (excuse me, sorry), and hungry. I had in mind a smoked meat plate lunch, but that lunch wagon didn’t show today (maybe went to a different location?). Sigh. No matter, try a different lunch wagon.

Notice they call themselves a lunchwagon? Not a food truck? Old school represent!

Thought I’d better go easy, just in case.

Chicken and Squash Stew, Garlic Fried Rice

Chicken and Squash Stew/Soup, Garlic Fried Rice

Not sure where this dish originates from, Philippines, Japan, Okinawa, dunno. It’s good though, simple, tasty, and “clean” (not too much oils). The fried rice was a surprise too. More like “Spanish rice” style, not so much Chinese, again, tasty. Hit the spot.

Dinner.

Chicken Salad with Cranberries on Politically Incorrect Bread

Chicken Salad with Cranberries on Politically Incorrect Bread

From the downtown 7-Eleven. Very tasty. Must be from their “gourmet” line. Would definite purchase again.

BTW, since I was “out” yesterday, co-worker saved some donuts for me. Cute yeah?

Two? Must think I’m an oink, not a squeek. Hee hee. Thanks M.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Silver Lining

Co-worker suggested getting the teriyaki chicken bagel sandwich from here.

Sign

Sign

Picture intentionally blurred to hide the guilty. 😦

I’ve priced their food before and seems overpriced, but thought try it once. Walk in, totally ignored by the young staff, talking about whatever, felt like I was in that Nationwide commercial with the “invisible girl”. Got disgusted and walked out. The window sign says “inspiring creativity” (no mention about great service or respecting the customers), I think the owner focused more on form over substance.

Walked next door to here.

Where I sometimes pick up a sandwich. Today’s special, chicken katsu plate.

Chicken Katsu Plate, Brown Rice

No extra charge for the brown rice (some places do), kimchi included.

Close Up

Close Up

Awesome chicken katsu, freshly made, no greasy taste, so much food, the take-out box couldn’t close properly. And to top everything off? A dollar less than the bagel sandwich (go figure).

Needless to say, will not be stepping foot into that bagel place anytime soon (coincidentally, there’s another bagel shop a couple of blocks away if I’m ever jonesing for bagels). And, if not for the “great” service, I wouldn’t have gotten the terrific meal. Maybe I should send the bagel shop a thank you note. Heh heh.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Taco Tuesday

At a lunch grill across the street from the church.

Sign

3114 Monsarrat Avenue, Honolulu Hawai’i. Had to go to church today (was extremely sinful this week, just kidding!) 😉 The place was recommended by the church administrator (especially for Taco Tuesdays).

Regular prices

Regular prices

On Tuesdays, chicken or fish tacos are $2.25 each (that’s a $1.60 off each taco), not bad. Ordered one chicken and one fish taco.

The Mouse's Lunch

The Mouse’s Lunch

With fries. 🙂  Chicken on the left, fish on the right. Fish was ono (or Wahoo, close relative of the king mackerel. Not bad, vegetable was a slaw, diced tomato, and green onions (no cilantro). Nicely seasoned, no salsa to accompany the tacos. 😦 Luckily there was sriracha available.

Too bad about the cilantro. Would have enhanced the overall dish. Sigh.

Enjoy. Eat well.
