The Mouse eats, not in one day, two.

Baked Manapua

Royal Kitchen, Chinatown. Char siu, kalua pork, black sugar.

Steamed Manapua, Crispy Gau Gee

Char siu. The Mouse still prefers steamed over baked, but will not turn down baked. Hee hee 🙂

Be safe, eat good.

Cheat Day?

Just kidding, The Mouse is not on a diet, just watching what he eats.

The Cat went to work, The Mouse got “manapua”.

Manapua,Pork Hash, Shoyu/Mustard

Mmm. The Mouse has not eaten this for a while. 🙂

To make the meal even more “decadent”, The Mouse also bought fried “gau gee”.

Fried Gau Gee

The Mouse was in porky heaven. Hee hee. Nom!

Be safe and well.

Hand Held Food

Earlier this week, one of The Mouse’s co-workers was getting sworn in as a new citizen. The Mouse went to Chinatown to pick up a lei for her, unfortunately, it was on the day The Mouse’s favorite manapua store was closed.

So, yesterday, with manapua still on The Mouse’s mind, left early for work, quick detour into Chinatown, found parking, and picked up lunch.

Manapua, Pork Hash Dumplings

Big, white, fluffy ball of dough, spongy, airy, yet chewy. Nom! All The Mouse needed was a can of fruit punch and small kid time again. Hee hee.

Dinner was a simple naan bread sandwich with ham and shiso.

Ham and Shiso on Naan Bread

Lightly toasted.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Mouse at the Korean grocery store, looking for items for The Cat’s bento this week. The Mouse, hungry (not hangry yet).

Steamed Dumplings

Yay! The Mouse was feeling manapua but didn’t want to drive to Char Hung Sut.

Different filling from Char Hung Sut but still nom. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well,

Buns and Açaí

Since I was in the neighborhood …

Try try.


Mostly a bubble tea place, but, they also have açaí and bao buns on the menu.

Since The Mouse was doing take-out, went with the “manapua” buns instead of the regular open bao buns.


Char siu on the left, mushroom and vegetable on the right (they were out of miso steak 😦 ).

Bite Views

Both were okay, little too much onion for The Mouse’s taste. Plus, no one does “manapua” style buns like Char Hung Sut. Hee hee.

For dessert.

Açaí Bowl

Açaí, granola, papaya, mango, pineapple, coconut, local passion fruit drizzle.

Nice change from the “normal” mixed berry toppings.

In in the neighborhood again, maybe try the open bao buns, definitely another açaí bowl, maybe even a bubble tea. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.
