Fish Friday

One of the managers at The Mouse’s workplace decided to treat lunch. One of the owner’s other companies he owns, a poke shop.

Poke and Sashimi on Greens

Wasabi Masago poke, salmon, hamachi, and ahi sashimi. This was a small portion. The Mouse was afraid if he ordered the regular, he would be sleepy after. 🙂

Nom!

The Mouse is not looking a gift horse in the mouth, but just wondering if the manager got an “employee discount”. Hee hee.

Stay safe.

“Cafeteria” in a department store. Old school throwback. Sunday’s schedule a bit wacky. Decided to save time and eat at the “cafeteria”. It has been here at least twenty years.

The Gazebo.

Seating

Clear “winter” weather.

The Cat seems to like soup and sandwich combos during the winter time.

Tomato Bisque

More like a hybrid, cream of tomato soup with vegetable soup. The Cat didn’t mind.

Tuna Salad on Croissant

Nothing fancy. Old school style.

For The Mouse, it was a toss up between stuffed cabbage or hamburger steak, cashier’s personal preference was the hamburger steak. Follow the recommendation.

Hamburger Steak, Brown Rice, Beans, Gravy, and Onions

Cooked well-done. The Mouse usually orders medium rare, but in this case, The Mouse wasn’t asked. No matter, the char on the burgers and tender texture made up for the doneness.

Next time The Mouse is in the mood of old school eating, be back.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Not a typical Sunday. Did not visit the farmers market, trek into town.

Breakfast at a place The Mouse been wanting to try for years. MAC 24/7. The Cat ordered mochi pancakes to try.

Mochi Pancakes

Soft and chewy, like a gummi bear. Hee hee. Leftover just as good. The Mouse would order these.

Funny, The Mouse couldn’t find breakfast to order, since it’s a diner concept, the whole menu is available “24/7”. The Mouse went with his standby BLT sandwich.

BLT on Wheat Toast

Very good, a sufficient amount of bacon, crispy. Fries were pretty good too.

A trip to the mall and lunch at another “diner”, Liliha Bakery at the mall.

The Cat’s turn, BLTA with add on lobster bisque.

BLTA on Crescent Bread

Again, a decent amount of bacon, not as crispy though. Still good.

Lobster Bisque

The Cat thinks for a diner, good job on the soup. The Mouse thinks The Cat found a new lunch spot when she’s at the mall.

The Mouse tried their signature hamburger steak.

With brown rice and green salad for balance

The Mouse likes. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

A pit stop for The Cat and The Mouse between Kona and Hilo.

Sign

Quaint, rustic restaurant. Mix of tourist and locals. Menu reminded The Mouse of tourist menus back before the Hawai`i Regional Cuisine movement. Interesting.

Panko Crusted Fish Sandwich

The Mouse order. One of the better fried fish sandwiches in recent memory. Oven baked planks of potato.

Chicken Salad in Papaya Half

The Cat’s order. The Mouse remember small-mouse time on the menu. Wow!

Still “exotic”.

Highlight was the restaurant’s pies.

Mac-nut cream pies

Super old school, nothing wrong with that. Server gave us an extra piece because it was “damaged”. Hee hee. Score!

Oh! The Mouse had to show you the bathroom signs. Who said this place is a throwback to another time? For the reading and emoji enabled.

Sign

🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

In The Cat and The Mouse case, it was a 2.5-fer. The Cat suggested lunch at Orchids Restaurant. Entree plus appetizer or dessert for special price. The Mouse was a little hesitant. Smaller portions? Still hungry after?

But, try try.

Lobby Decoration

When the restaurant’s name is Orchids …

The Cat’s order.

Crema All’Aragosta

Kona Maine Lobster Bisque, Lemongrass.

What is Kona Maine? Dunno, tasted good.

Homemade Lasagnette

Fresh Chef Pasta, Kahuku Prawns, Scallops, Avocado, Lightly Spiced. Think deconstructed lasagna, The Cat kept thinking won ton skin. Look Funn noods? Hee hee.

The Mouse chose.

Fried Calamari

One of the best The Mouse has eaten, not greasy, super crispy. Nom!

Orchids Burger

8 oz. Prime Burger, Shiitake Sauté, Romaine, Tomato, Onion, Bacon, American Cheese, Guacamole. More nom.

Server suggested we cannot leave without indulging in their signature coconut cake. Twist our arms/paws.

Halekulani’s Signature Coconut Cake

Chiffon Cake, Coconut-Amaretto Cream.

A little on the pricey side for lunch, but not not “break the bank, OMG what were you thinking!” pricey. More affordable than dinner. Not everyday, but once in a while. Hope to be back in the not too distant future.

Enjoy. Eat well.
