Another Vegan Meal

Sunday lunch. Try try. With Master W and K.


Site is a converted gas station.

Kaukau Lū’au

The Mouse’s order.

Local Okinawan sweet potato (u’ala), taro (kalo), breadfruit (ulu – when in season) and lū’au leaves soaked in a creamy coconut sauce with your choice of poi, brown rice or millet, tofu poke (plain or spicy) and fresh local greens.

The Mouse liked.

Coco-Bacon Super Salad

The Cat’s order.

Bed of fresh local greens with tomato, beets, carrots, avocado (when available) and coco-bacon. Choice of our house-made vegan ginger tahini or balsamic dressing.


First time trying coco-bacon, coconut chip bacon substitute. Not bad, The Mouse is not a big fan, but not opposed to it.

The Cat chew chew chewed, got tired, so we switched plates toward the end. Hee hee.

The Cat liked desert.

Out of This Swirled Soft Serve

Our vegan take on “ice cream” (using a banana and coconut milk base), served with pineapple, banana, papaya, our house-made granola, honey, cacao “magic shell” sauce, cacao coconut flakes, and mac nuts.

Funny, although both The Cat and The Mouse were “full”, there was something “missing”. Especially after the vegetarian dinner the other night. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Started off with The Mouse picking up his prescription, the specialty pharmacy only opens until 12:00 noon. Then, off to chingming with the relatives.

Looking Towards the Hill


View Toward the City


The Ancestor


The Offering

The Mouse couldn’t stay for lunch, had to do the inconvenient paycheck cashing (looong story). So, picked up a gravy/rice bowl on the way.


Recently opened. The Mouse was looking at the musubi selection but a little pricey, went with a bowl of rice and Japanese beef stew instead (more quantity for the money, remember, The Mouse is “pake”, Hee hee).

Japanese Beef Stew Bowl

Not photogenic, but yummy. Lots of gravy, enough vegetables and beef, definitely going back for the stew, and maybe the curry (Japanese style).

Dinner was kinda impromptu. The Mouse kinda was leaning toward the Irish pub near The Cat’s office, but The Cat seemed to be needing Chinese comfort food, on the way looking for parking, we ended up here.


Go figure. Shared the vegetarian sampler plate.

Vegetarian Sampler Plate

With sourdough injera flatbread. While filling, The Mouse thought something was still “missing”. Nothing a small Mickey D burger can’t satisfy (just sayin’), hee hee.

Desert was a peanut drink, reminded The Cat of Chinese black sesame drink, reminded The Mouse of melted peanut butter. 🙂

Peanut Drink

An “adventurous” Saturday.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Cat, still getting back to “normal”

Buffet at 100 Sails. Kama‘aina discount.


Seafood night.

One of The Mouse’s Plates

Mushroom ravioli, quinoa salad, fried oyster, baby carrots (Easter time, bunny food). Nom.

The Cat liked the Seafood Bake “Soup”

Bad lighting.

Window View

The Mouse didn’t try to count the number of sails, too busy eating. Hee hee.

Heading out to chingming today, then several errands.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Bun and Bowl

Not much happening food-wise yesterday.

Red Bean Bun

Bulgogi Chicken Bowl

Neighborhood grocery store bought. Cooked well, juicy, savory, little bit spicy. Nom!

Awesome with the chicken. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Weekday one pot cooking for The Mouse.

The Mouse’s Bowl

Okra, celery, black-eyed beans, garlic, chicken sausage, margarine, salt and pepper to taste, and a splash of whiskey. Easy clean-up. Nom.

Leftover Shrimp Salad

The salad dressing got to soak into the vegetables (this time in a good way). Sometimes, the salads The Cat brings home gets over saturated.

It is almost the weekend, can’t wait, too many “fires” at work.

Enjoy. Eat well.
