Saw this place on former co-worker’s Facebook:


For geezers like The Mouse and The Cat, used to be the old Yum Yum Tree location.

Lunches are “not sit down service”. Order at the counter, pick-up at the kitchen window, find your own table, take-out boxes and plastic utensils. Dinner (I’m told) is sit down service.

The Cat ordered off of the daily special menu.

“Game Day” Special

First time (except for tempura) The Cat orders a plate with deep fried food (she saw soft shell crab). 🙂

Shrimp, fish, calamari?, along with the soft shell crab (two!), rice and salad. The Cat liked.

The Mouse ordered:

Portobello Mushroom and Vegetable “Burger”

On taro bun with fries. Well made.

Restaurant also has a poke counter.


Cute ya?

Mussel Poke with Sesame Seed Topping

Jus’ to try. Not bad. 🙂

The Cat approved a revisit in the future, maybe for dinner? Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Cat had her last class night. The Mouse did take-out.

The “Turf”

From the grocery store, grilled chicken, steamed vegetables, corn. Half of the vegetables went to The Cat’s bento the next day (rice, corn, steamed vegetables, steamed purple sweet potato, pork feet soup).

The “Turf”

Ahi poke with kukui nut. Yum. 🙂

Happy Friday!

Enjoy. Eat well.

Holiday early bird dindin at the neighborhood Italian cafe (Zia’s).

Bacon Wrapped Mahi over Tomato Risotto

The daily special.

The Mouse ordered one of his “go-to’s”.

Spaghetti and Meatballs, Extra Sauce

Eat the spaghetti, meatballs go home for lunch the next day.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Trying a new can of tuna. The Cat’s mother picked it up.


Solid, in olive oil.

Mouse Plate

Okra, banana, orange, tuna.

The tuna was great, socks off good. 🙂

Better than the el cheapo bargain tins (“chunk light”) we’ve eaten. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

No, The Mouse is not Catholic, must be the influence on campus. In the mood for fish today.

But first, a visit to the chocolate shop.

Easter Chocolates

The bunnies and chicks are sitting on an old-fashioned cold appetizer cart. I think the way it works is under the perforated disk is ice to keep the plates cold as the cart is wheeled around a dining room. Some of the chocolates are hollow and filled with jelly beans and whatnot.

So since I was in the vicinity … a short hop to the original Bob’s Bar-B-Cue. The baked beans and Polish sausage plate will just have to wait for another time.

Grilled Ahi Sandwich

The shiso leaf is from The Cat and The Mouse’s bucket garden.

And, since this was the first meal of the day (not breakfast, kinda “brunch”).

Fried Oyster Sandwich

After a Kobe (you know, cow massage) session with a new masseuse, a walk around the neighborhood mall, something “lite”.

Mc D’s Filet-O-Fish Sandwich

Again, shiso leaf from the bucket garden.

If it’s frozen and square, is it still considered “fish”, especially in SPAM land? Just rhetorical. Uhmm.

Seems like today’s kitchens kinda went overboard with the tartar sauce. Oh well.

I think my craving for fish sandwiches (cooked) has been satiated for the time being.

So, how’s your weekend going so far?

Enjoy. Eat well.
