Silver Lining

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

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┬ámore on form over substance.

Walked next door to here.

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

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

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.

3114 Monsarrat Avenue, Honolulu Hawai’i. Had to go to church today (was extremely┬ásinful this week, just kidding!)­čśë 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.­čÖé ┬áChicken 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.­čśŽ Luckily there was sriracha available.

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

Enjoy. Eat well.

My Cuz’s Fault

Chinese Beef Stew with Tendons

Chinese Beef Stew with Tendons

Aaargh! From Lam’s Kitchen in Chinatown. If you look closely, near 9:00, there’s a large scoop of house made chili in oil. Looks like this.

The majority of the time, given the choice between rice or noodles, The Mouse chooses rice. Except for Chinese beef stew with tendon, gotta be with noodles in soup, weird yeah?

Friday Food Day

Friday turned out to be a pretty good day, food-wise.

Started with a SPAM musubi.

SPAM Musubi with Egg

SPAM Musubi with Egg

It was okay. The slight char of the SPAM was good, and the little omelet was a plus, but the ratio of rice and SPAM was off. Sorry, kind of a snob when it comes to SPAM musubi. Would I buy it again? Maybe, not on a regular basis though.

Lunch was a change-up from the usual for the past couple of months (lau lau and kalua pork)

Mix Plate

Mix Plate

Blackened tuna with sweet wasabi cream and fried tuna poke, no rice, all greens. From the same lunch wagon. Both were done well given the health department’s requirement that food served from mobile food businesses cannot be “raw”, except for salads. Both fish were┬áa little tough (just a little), but the flavors compensated for the lack of “rareness”.

Dinner with the cuz’s (the D&G cuzs, not the B&P cuzs) and friends at Haleiwa Joe’s at Haiku Gardens. Got there late, only had time to order and eat. Went with a salad.

Ginger Peanut Chicken Salad

Ginger Peanut Chicken Salad

A lightly marinated, grilled chicken breast, sliced & served on fresh baby greens with a spicy ginger dressing & roasted peanuts. The greens and dress was good, although did not get too much of the spicy ginger part, the chicken was more like chicken at a seminar lunch … meh. Lighted up the dish with the mini flashlights (too dark, iPhone 3G no flash :))

Sticky Ribs

Sticky Ribs

 

The Cat’s order.┬á┬Ż rack of baby back pork ribs cooked in our soy-ginger sauce, char-grilled. Served with rice & green papaya salad. The ribs were fall off the bone tender. The Cat at first didn’t care for the smoky taste but got used to it. The Mouse likes smoky. ┬áThe green papaya salad? Next time leave it to the experts … pass. Definitely would order the ribs again.

All in all, not a bad Friday.

Have a safe Memorial Day tomorrow (if it is a holiday for you).

Enjoy. Eat well.
