Pork Gisantes

The Mouse tried two places close to home.

Plate #1

The Mouse’s opinion, plate was okay, a little thick from what The Mouse was expecting, could’ve had more peas.

Plate #2

Combo plate with half rice and half noodles, and kabocha pumpkin. This plate was better, in The Mouse’s opinion. Brighter visually and in taste and a lot more peas. The pumpkin was nom too. 🙂 The Mouse would go back for the second plate. Maybe try the pinakbet too. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

Another “weird” Saturday schedule, expected for the holiday season. The Mouse’s car needed oil service. Early morning appointment. Bonus! dealership had free popcorn! The Mouse ate a small bag, no salt, no butter. 🙂

Late breakfast, just missed the MickyD cutoff. “Filipino” take-out.





Meat Close Up

The Mouse chose fried rice, needed Lau Gan Ma, sausage and SPAM were well prepared, kitchen plated spinach instead of the onion and tomato salad, no vinegar dressing. Maybe kitchen thought since The Mouse wasn’t Filipino, tone down the flavors. That’s ok, spinach, wilted by the hot meat was good too (with a touch of Lau Gan Ma).

For dinner, went to our favorite Mexican restaurant on the Windward side. Not only for the food, but for the musical stylings of (never got his name). Have to ask next time.

First time for The Cat.

Giant Burrito

The Cat wanted to try, she surrendered after about a third. Remainder is for The Mouse’s bento tomorrow.

The Mouse ordered the usual fiesta bowl but this time with seafood (swai fish and shrimp).

Seafood Fiesta Bowl

No dairy, extra lime and salsa. The Mouse’s bowl was good, but he thinks he will be sticking to carnitas and chile verde in the future.

Farmers market and last minute Christmas shopping on the schedule today.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Comfort Food

The Mouse (and The Cat) is (are) back. Short trip to Hilo, semi-business for The Cat, The Mouse went along kinda as driver. Pics and stories coming. In the meantime, last night dinner. Schedule still out of whack, jet lag and all. Hee hee.

Max’s of Manila, near The Mouse’s workplace.

Dishes that meet The Cat’s food preferences.


Vegetables? Check. Soupy? Check.

A little too much shrimp paste for The Mouse’s taste, good with rice though.

Papaya Chicken Soup

Again, soupy? Check. Vegetables? Check.

Well cooked. Chicken was not “dried out” from overcooking, papaya was soft, but not falling apart.

Really though, the main reason for coming here was for the ube ice cream (The Cat was jonesing for).

Ube Ice Cream

The Cat would have gone for a bowl of Halo Halo, but watching her weight and too much food.

Enjoy. Eat well.
