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 Cat comes home today. The Mouse started Christmas shopping last night. Only time The Cat wouldn’t see what The Mouse buys for her. I think The Mouse did well.

Tempura dinner at the mall.

Pickles, Shredded Turnip, Bean Sprouts


Miso Soup


Side Order Pickles

So colorful. 🙂

Vegetable Tempura Donburi

Eggplant, hearts of palm, lotus root, kabocha, asparagus, kale.

Who said eating vegetables had to be boring? Hee hee. Nom!

Enjoy. Eat well.

Last weekend, time shift and all. Hee hee.

The Place

We tried it once before, seemed like they were aiming toward a younger crowd. Last week, the lunch crowd seemed more The Mouse’s age. Maybe it was a re-branding? Dunno.

Matcha Tea

A good start.

Meal Accompaniments

Pickles, side (fried fish cake), salad, miso soup.

So far so good.

Ordered something The Mouse hasn’t tried before.

Ahi Zuke and Yamaimo Don

Soy sauce based marinated ahi sashimi and mountain yam over rice. Yum.

And, a little something to “cleanse the palate” at the end.

Yuzu Sorbet

Overall, a little pricey, definitely not cheap eats. A nice occasional treat “once in a blue moon”. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.
