A Costco run, lunch nearby Liliha Bakery/Coffee Shop. New owner has kept the favorite old menu items while adding modern fare.

The Mouse ordered old school:

Oh wait, start with their famous grilled butter rolls with nuclear neon jelly.

Butter Rolls

Ok, now The Mouse’s order:

Roast Pork, Rice, Corn, Mixed Greens

Mmm! Nom! 🙂

The Cat order new school:

Arugula Salad with Grilled Salmon

There was also dried cranberries, strawberries, and almonds on the side. The Cat would order again. 🙂

On the way out, The Mouse noticed bakery is selling bottles of the jelly.

Jelly?

The Mouse dunno, could be sith kyber crystals, dilithium crystals, stuff that powers magic wands, heh heh.

The Cat found a new favorite besides oxtail soup. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

Birthday lunch for Mrs. P. at Mariposa, a milestone birthday (not revealing age). Hee hee. Chef P. made arrangements with Chef L. (executive chef), who trained under Chef P. for some specials.

Complimentary salad.

Seared Ahi Tuna Salad

Excellent start, dressing was the bomb. Nom!

Everyone except The Mouse ordered smoked pork chop.

Smoked Pork Chop

A bed of risotto, grilled vegetables, not sure what the condiment was, everyone more than liked. 😉

The Mouse went with his go-to order, hamburger, medium rare.

Mariposa Cheeseburger sans Cheese

The Mouse likes to order “regular” burgers at nice restaurants. Not fancy shmancy over the top “gourmet burger” (think truffles and Kobe), but a well executed burger. Chef L. did not fail to deliver. Nicely charred on the outside, perfectly pink on the inside. Mmm! 🙂

Complimentary dessert was peach meringue tarts with torched meringue. The Mouse thought he took a pic but did not. Fail. Sigh. Very good though.

Chef L. learned well. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

The Mouse had another doctor’s appointment yesterday. Since he was in town, The Cat sent him on an errand. By the time The Mouse was finished, it was lunch time. Between lunch hour traffic, one way streets, and construction, The Mouse couldn’t get to a few places to take-out. Finally landed at Asian Mix, picked up a roast duck and char siu on rice plate.

Roast Duck, Char Siu, Rice, Choi Sum

Huge portion, reasonably priced. The Mouse barely ate a quarter. Half of the duck, about half of the rice, and a lot of the choi sum went into The Cat’s bento for the next day. Half of the duck and a few stalks of choi sum went to The Cat’s dinner noodle bowl.

Noodle Bowl

Along with spaghetti pasta and canned bamboo shoots.

Another quarter of the rice portion and the remaining char siu is for The Mouse’s lunch today. 🙂

Priced out, each portion comes to three dollars and change. Not bad, “cheap eats”.

Stay safe and well.

Pork <3

The Mouse took a detour on the way home from servicing his car the other day. A little Chinese prepared food concession in a grocery store.

Manapua and Pork Hash

Mmm! Craving satiated. Hee hee.

Chinese Roast Pork

More mmm! This will last a couple of meals. 🙂 ❤

Stay safe and well.

Grill Marks

The Cat’s lunch yesterday.

Pork Chop

Beautiful yeah?

The Cat finished the rice and vegetables. Forgot to bring home the leftover pork chop. I guess The Mouse just has to wait another day. Sigh. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.
