The Mouse was MIA yesterday, helping The Cat on a rush order. While not entirely on the scale of Rogue One …

Sunday lunch eats, after a somewhat “difficult” errand, Taiwanese style tea shop, The Cat wanted something soupy.

Braised Minced Pork Rice Noodle Soup
Braised Minced Pork on Rice

To The Mouse, the pork was kinda like if Zippy’s chili was dry without beans or mapo tofu without the tofu, also dry. Not bad.

Fried Dumplings

Very good, except The Cat had to limit since the filling contained chives (not digestible). The Mouse liked.

Taiwan Omelette with Dried Pork

Best dish of the day. Crepe, scrambled egg, dried pork floss, cucumber. The Mouse tried this once before as take-out. Eat-in was much better.

The Mouse is looking for his own droid for the next time. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

Ahi Noodle Soup?

Not chicken. The Cat’s lunch yesterday, not porkchop.

Ahi Pasta

The Cat brought a mousie bag home for The Mouse to try. sauce was soupy, dish reminded The Mouse of chicken noodle soup but with ahi instead of chicken. Not bad, homey comfort food. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

Years ago, The Cat had lunch at the Waikiki branch of Wolfgang’s Steakhouse. At the time the restaurant had lunch specials at special prices. The Cat had an errand in Waikiki yesterday so thought to check it out again.

The lunch specials are still offered but the soup and salad combo was no longer on the menu. The Cat ordered just soup.

Lobster Bisque

The Cat thought is was okay. Soup was off of the regular lunch menu, not special priced Chef H’s is better.

The Mouse ordered the classic burger. Special lunch priced.

Classic Burger

The Mouse requested rice substitute for fries and onion rings because The Mouse also ordered fish and chips to share with The Cat. Too much fried sides. 🙂

Price for the burger was half of the regular lunch menu. The Mouse was happy. Coarse ground beef.

Fish and Chips

Also on the lunch special menu. Fish and chips is not a regular lunch item so could not determine the “cheap eats’ factor, but price was reasonable.

If in the neighborhood, The Mouse wouldn’t mind revisiting for another burger. But be warned, parking is a b****.

Stay safe and well.

After purchasing The Cat’s coffee and cocoa beans (see previous post), time for lunch. The Mouse was not expecting too much since the area is tourist oriented. Picked a spot, Stonefish Grill.

The Cat ordered “soup and salad”.

Seafood Chowder

Fresh seafood, potatoes, celery, and house seasoning in a thick sherry cream based soup. The soup was not hot to The Cat’s standard. Explanation was that since we were seated and ordered at opening, the soup didn’t have enough time to heat. Wha? The Mouse thinks soup should be ready at opening. Oh well, maybe someone in the kitchen forgot. Sigh. The Cat said taste was good.

Crab Cake Salad

House baby greens mix, mango salsa, avocado lime aioli. Lotsa bell peppers and onions which were pushed aside for The Mouse. Colorful tho’.

The Mouse ordered the Stonefish fish sandwich, which on that day was broadbill swordfish (shutome).

Fish Sandwich

Local catch grilled, served on baby greens & toasted bun with tater sauce. Not bad, fish could have been a little larger (at least to fit bread length), swordfish would not have been The Mouse’s first choice but “fresh catch” is a dice throw. Fries were excellent.

Even with the missteps lunch was enjoyable. Road trip and The Cat’s beans probably helped. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

The Cat’s lunch, watermelon and tomato salad. A business acquaintance recommended.

Salad

Chunks of ripe tomato and watermelon with shaved red onion tossed in white balsamic vinaigrette and topped with goat cheese. The Cat thought is was okay. Maybe the acquaintance was nostalgic when she attended school in Louisiana. The Mouse is not too sure he would like either, but keeping an open mind and stomach. Hee hee.

Chicken and Sausage Jambalaya

The Cat thought “fried rice”, not really but understandable. She brought some home for The Mouse to taste. Tasty. 🙂

Stay safe and well.
