The Mouse watching too much YouTube, “The Burger Show”, and yesterday’s veggie burger experience. The Mouse had to “satisfy his palate”. Hee hee.

A “Mr. Lee’s Burger”. Plain, not deluxe.

Stay well and safe.

The Mouse’s dinner last night.


Picked up from the neighborhood Chinese take-out drive-in. Not gourmet, no premium meat, no special sauce, but cheap and well made. The Mouse added maybe the last shiso leaves of the season from the bucket.

Stay healthy y’all.

Enjoy. Eat well.

“Since we were in the neighborhood.” Had to make a stop at Manago Restaurant. Super old school.

Almost Twilight





Pickled seaweed, macaroni potato salad, mixed vegetables.

Mahi Mahi

The Mouse’s. Pan-fried, garlic and butter. The best!

The Cat ordered opakapaka, looked so similar the server was confused for a moment.


Hopefully, we can return again.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Saturday schedule, super whacked. Late afternoon lunch after dropping off presents. The Mouse wanted something simple. Palace Saimin all the way across town, way too far (with Christmas shopping traffic). Ended up here.


Another fifty-year plus establishment.

The Mouse opted for a local fave combo.

Smalll Saimin with Vegetables


Hamburger Deluxe

Why we in SPAM Land eat these two dishes together? Dunno. but that’s the way it is. Hee hee.

Oh, and in keeping a theme running. This place also had a little pond.

Koi Pond

Smaller number of koi, cute. No fish food though. Sigh.

Oh, and if you look closely at the first picture, notice the help wanted sign. Looking for all positions, no experience necessary. Maybe The Mouse will apply for something in the kitchen. Hee hee.

Hope your holiday season has been happy so far.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Unplugged, Part II

100 years young!


Started in 1917

Part of Manago Hotel, Captain Cook, Hawai‘i.


Notice the basin next to the door? Make sure to wash hand before eating. Hee hee.


Possibly food selection has not changed, just the prices. Still reasonable though.


Family style.

Rice and tea

Teapot? Super old school.


Genmaicha. Yum!

The Cat’s Opakapaka

100 years? Plating is for foufou eaters. Hee hee.

CB’s NewYork Steak

He liked.

The Mouse’s Miso Butterfish

All the dishes, nothing fancy, just fresh, honest food, cooked well. The kicker? The Cat would return. 🙂


Enjoy. Eat well.
