That funny time between Christmas and the new year. The Mouse “volunteered” to go into work yesterday. Ugh!

A little treat for himself for that “offer”.

Inari, Shiso Onigiri, Hot Dot, Tofu Patty, Corned Beef Hash Patty (Mostly Potato, in a good way)

To top off the day, The Cat brought home leftover dessert.

Mixed Berry Pie

Super ono!

Overall, The Mouse had a good day food-wise. Weekend-wise? At least yesterday? Not that great. But, got some work done with less interruptions.

Any plans for new year eve? The Cat and The Mouse are still trying to decide.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Made it!


One of their menu items is beef tongue and bone marrow bibimbap. The Mouse really wanted to try. Alas, only for dinner.

Stayed for lunch. Scouting mission for future?

Lunch Menu

Simple. Teishoku or rice bowl. Check off selections. Kinda like going to dim sum. Hee hee.

Even the table decoration incorporates with the menu.

Cute ya?

Choice of entree and soup, rice and two sides included.

The Cat’s Teishoku

Smoked pork steak with sweet ginger sauce.

High point on The Cat’s tray was the soup.

Minestrone Soup

The Cat proclaimed “best minestrone ever!”

The Mouse’s Teishoku

House-made roast beef with grated daikon radish. Nom!

There were even onions (underneath the roast beef) to compliment the meat.

Yuzu Sorbet

The Mouse had to try. Hee hee. Excellent.

Going back for the beef tongue and bone marrow bibmbap. Soon!

Enjoy. Eat well.

Sunday brunch/lunch.

Sign Says It All

Not only AYCE but at a discount. The pake in us went for it.


Pre-cooking, still “clean”.

The highlights.

Cauliflower Tempura


Hanger Steak


Pork Toro

Pork cheeks? This was a winner.

Beef Heart


Filet Mignon

Another winner.

The Mouse thinks next time, concentrate on the pork toro and filet mignon. 🙂

But, hightpoint of the meal was dessert.


The Mouse almost forgot about these (last time ate them was at camp, more than forty years ago), first time for The Cat.

The Cat’s S’More

Ordered a second order. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Sunday Lunch

For reasons too long to explain (let’s just say Christmas time kinda gets hectic), ended up eating here.


Old school neighborhood eatery.

The Mouse tried once before, first time for The Cat.



More Interior

Fans and umbrellas everywhere.

Although not as old, kinda reminded The Cat of Manago Hotel on big island.

The Cat’s Order

Miso butterfish and tempura combo.

The Mouse’s Order

Pork Tofu and tempura combo.

The Cat and The Mouse both agree tempura is their specialty.

Enjoy. Eat well,

The Mouse
