The Mouse thinks this are the last pics from The Cat’s schoolmate visit. The Cat chose Okinawan food for dinner one night.

Goya Chanpuru

Bittermelon w/Tofu & Eggs, choice of meat, The Mouse chose bacon. Hee hee. The smokiness of the bacon perfectly complemented the bittermelon.

Nasubi Chanpuru

Eggplant w/Tofu & Green Onions, choice of meat, this time shoyu pork. Mmm!

Soki Soup

Pork Spareribs, Daikon, Konbu & Cabbage. Comfort food. 🙂

Last but certainly no least,

Nori Wrapped Ahi Tempura

 Ahi w/Mayonnaise & Kabayaki Sauce drizzle. Our server’s favorite dish. He did not disappoint. While the dish may not be our favorite, we normally eat Okinawan cuisine for the comfort/homestyle vibe, the tempura was a welcome contrast to the soups and stews. The Mouse would order again. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

Chinese food (Yen Yen Chinese Cuisine), allows eat-in for now. Our go-to chop suey (Kin Wah) is still take-out only. The Mouse has been here before, first time for The Cat.

The Cat ordered.

Pork and Watercress Soup
Cold Ginger Chicken
Shrimp Omelet
Long Bean with Pork

Everything was good and tasty, The Cat prefers the cold ginger chicken from Kin Wah, still edible though.

A back-up choice for Chinese food in the area. Yen Yen is a bit of a drive, about fifteen minutes compared with Kin Wah, five-minutes.

Stay safe and well.

Morton’s The Steakhouse running a holiday dinner prixe fix dinner menu. One appetizer (half portion), one entrée, one side, one dessert.

Both The Cat and The Mouse started with jumbo shrimp cocktail.

Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail

Nom! Next time, The Mouse is going to request extra horseradish. Mmm!

Again, both The Cat and The Mouse ordered Ora king salmon.

Ora King Salmon

This dish is nice because included is a bed of mixed vegetables (cauliflower, edamame, tomatoes, etc). Other steak dishes do not come with the vegetables (Manago hotel plating).

Desserts were different.

Key Lime Pie for The Cat
Morton’s Legendary Hot Chocolate Cake for The Mouse

The cake lived up to its hype, legendary. 🙂 (The Cat got the ice cream).

Stay safe and well.

Another errand in the Kalihi area. The Mouse has been interested in Guieb Café for a bit. Saw an internet post of their Honey Acai French Toast, The Mouse drooled. Hee hee.

Honey Acai French Toast

Topped with berries, banana, granola and honey, server recommended honey on the side to control the sweetness. The Mouse liked the warm French toast contrasting with the cold scoop of acai sorbet. Mmm! The granola and fruits added nice texture too. The Mouse would order again.

Another dish The Mouse wanted to try was the Bao Bun Benedict.

Bao Bun Benedict

Charsiu pork belly, fresh cucumber & cilantro with hoisin hollandaise. Hollandaise on the side because the server wasn’t certain there was no dairy in the sauce. Cute yeah?

Dish was great except kitchen slightly grilled the bao bun, changed the texture from soft and pillowy to kinda “stale”. Deep sigh.

The Cat was drawn to The breakfast wrap.

Cali Wrap

Spinach tortilla, avocado, bacon, tomatoes, spinach, cheddar cheese and scrambled eggs. Served with fresh fruits, salsa and sour cream. The Cat liked.

A return visit soon. 🙂

Stay safe and well.
