The Mouse was MIA yesterday, helping The Cat on a rush order. While not entirely on the scale of Rogue One …

Sunday lunch eats, after a somewhat “difficult” errand, Taiwanese style tea shop, The Cat wanted something soupy.

Braised Minced Pork Rice Noodle Soup
Braised Minced Pork on Rice

To The Mouse, the pork was kinda like if Zippy’s chili was dry without beans or mapo tofu without the tofu, also dry. Not bad.

Fried Dumplings

Very good, except The Cat had to limit since the filling contained chives (not digestible). The Mouse liked.

Taiwan Omelette with Dried Pork

Best dish of the day. Crepe, scrambled egg, dried pork floss, cucumber. The Mouse tried this once before as take-out. Eat-in was much better.

The Mouse is looking for his own droid for the next time. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

Years ago, The Cat had lunch at the Waikiki branch of Wolfgang’s Steakhouse. At the time the restaurant had lunch specials at special prices. The Cat had an errand in Waikiki yesterday so thought to check it out again.

The lunch specials are still offered but the soup and salad combo was no longer on the menu. The Cat ordered just soup.

Lobster Bisque

The Cat thought is was okay. Soup was off of the regular lunch menu, not special priced Chef H’s is better.

The Mouse ordered the classic burger. Special lunch priced.

Classic Burger

The Mouse requested rice substitute for fries and onion rings because The Mouse also ordered fish and chips to share with The Cat. Too much fried sides. 🙂

Price for the burger was half of the regular lunch menu. The Mouse was happy. Coarse ground beef.

Fish and Chips

Also on the lunch special menu. Fish and chips is not a regular lunch item so could not determine the “cheap eats’ factor, but price was reasonable.

If in the neighborhood, The Mouse wouldn’t mind revisiting for another burger. But be warned, parking is a b****.

Stay safe and well.

The Chinese restaurant that used to be downtown moved to the outskirts of the city. The owners said the downtown location was too big. The Cat and The Mouse coming back from an errand, both getting hungry. Too late for dim sum.

Salt and Pepper Porkchop

Moist and tender.

Chinese Broccoli

Cooked well, tender but still crisp.

Singapore Style Rice Noodle

Mild curry flavor. One of the better versions The Mouse has eaten recently.

Appears that there will be more errands in this area, repeat visits to this eatery might be in the foreseeable future. 🙂

Maybe early enough to get dim sum.

Stay safe and well,

The Cat’s lunch, watermelon and tomato salad. A business acquaintance recommended.

Salad

Chunks of ripe tomato and watermelon with shaved red onion tossed in white balsamic vinaigrette and topped with goat cheese. The Cat thought is was okay. Maybe the acquaintance was nostalgic when she attended school in Louisiana. The Mouse is not too sure he would like either, but keeping an open mind and stomach. Hee hee.

Chicken and Sausage Jambalaya

The Cat thought “fried rice”, not really but understandable. She brought some home for The Mouse to taste. Tasty. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

The main food. The Cat ordered salmon.

Pan-Seared Ora King Salmon

Served on a bed of sweet corn, yellow and zucchini squash, cauliflower rice, edamame, fresh basil, blistered tomatoes, salsa verde, and grilled lemon. The Cat said salmon was cooked perfectly.

The Mouse went the menu less traveled, since everything was ala carte, ordered two appetizers.

Nueske;s Bacon Steak

Thick-cut, soy-caramel glazed. Mmm. Texture was chewy, taste reminded The Mouse of fried SPAM, in a good way. Hee hee.

SRF Wagyu Meatballs

Sans Parmesan cheese. Very good, definite order again.

Sides were large portions to share.

Sautéed Brussels Sprouts

With bacon and shallots.

Sautéed Spinach & Button Mushrooms

Server recommended the mushrooms with onions but with The Cat digestion issues with onions …

Actually, the spinach and mushrooms were very good too.

Stay safe and well.
