A quick sidetrack to the neighborhood “cafe”.


The Cat ordered the special of the day.

Seared Ahi over Mushroom Risotto

The Mouse ordered

Pork Marsala over Linguine

Somehow the dish reminded me of Chinese style chow funn with gravy. The Mouse even splashed a little shoyu over the dish to balance the sweetness. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Dinner with The Cat’s brother. Michel’s at the Colony Surf. Chef’s choice.

Amuse Bouche

Smoked pork, poached mango, smashed Okinawan sweet potato. Nom!


Signature lobster bisque, tableside flambe.


Shaved endive, shrimp, grapes.

Seafood Course

Grilled mahi, asparagus, luau ravioli? (didn’t quite understand Chef H), lobster claw, smashed Okinawan sweet potato. The Cat, CB, and The Mouse liked.


Kalamansi sorbet with blueberry.

Meat Course

Bacon wrapped Filet Mignon, foie gras, starfruit, pickled beets, Haricots Verts, smashed potato, mushroom risotto, demi-glace. The Mouse’s favorite dish of the night. 🙂


Bananas Foster, tableside flambe.

As always, food and service, and view, never fails to exceed expectations. CB was impressed.

On a side note, The Mouse will be off-line for several days. Posting “placeholders” for that time. Be back soon.

Enjoy. Eat well.

After Drinks

Food! Since we were in Chinatown (see previous post). In the last couple of years, new “trendy” eating spots have opened up and helped to revitalize and “clean up” the Chinatown area. Not so much the center, but the outlying streets. Nearby Manifest.

Yakitori Hachibei

The Mouse really wanted to try but they were full that night. 😦

Tattoo Parlor

If The Mouse were ever to get a tattoo (not likely, afraid of needles and pain), maybe a mouse with a chef’s knife in one paw and a cast iron frying pan in the other? Hee hee.

Ended up here.


Positive rating on Yelp, try try.

Plant Wall

More wall art? Hee hee. Too bad the plants were not herbs. Oh well.

Steak Knife

First time for The Mouse to try a Laguiole knife. Looks nice, but sorry, seems this particular knife was more hype than performance. Maybe it was too old, dunno.

On to the food.


The Cat’s order. mushrooms and an onsen egg. Both The Cat and The Mouse thought there was too much something in the dish (maybe strong cheese), threw off the taste of the dish. Too bad, the ingredients sounded tasty. Maybe because the executive chef/owner wasn’t there. 😦

Burger and Fries

The Mouse’s order. Had better luck. Simple but well made. The Mouse liked the caramelized onions in the burger.

Meyer’s Lemon Sorbet

The Mouse thought it tasted similar to Key Lime pie (a good thing).

Heading out to pick up The Cat’s brother (visiting from Hong Kong).

Have a great weekend!

Enjoy. Eat well.

But first, update on the pork foot soup.

Solidified Beautifully

Yesterday. First day of classes on campus. Cashiers have to operate their window constantly. As a show of “unity”, no one goes out for lunch. Office buys lunch in. The Mouse ordered vegetarian chili.

Office also brought in desserts and snacks (co-worker’s b-day).




After eating the cake and fruit, The Mouse was too full for the chili. Took it home for dindin.

The Mouse’s Dinner Plate

Hollowed out baked potato (from Sunday’s lunch), filled with sun-dried tomato, the potato “inside”, topped with Zippy’s vegetarian chili. Nom! 🙂

Today is supposed to be more of the same, just no “free” lunch. Sigh.

Enjoy. Eat well.
