Restaurant The Mouse thought closed for good has risen like a phoenix, Sakura Terrace. For a long time, the place was boarded up (even before lock-down). The Mouse guesses owner wanted to protect the property from vandals.

Heading to doctors appointments, The Mouse drove by, surprised that the boards were taken off and new signage was up. After getting a sorta clean bill of health. The Mouse went to investigate. πŸ™‚


Hmm. Two sumo wrestlers on surfboards riding waves, one with a SPAM musubi and one chasing origami paper cranes. Meaning? The Mouse dunno.

Limited menu, take-out only for now. Two items, unusual to The Mouse’s eyes (not bento).

Pipikaula Salad

Salted and dried beef, spinach, poached egg, mushroom, w/ house dressing.

Ready to Eat

An instant favorite salad for The Mouse. Chef used king oyster mushrooms! Extra points!

The second non-bento item The Mouse ordered.

Maguro Burger

Another instant fave for The Mouse. Came with satsuma imo (sweet potato) fries.

The maguro was breaded and deep fried to perfection. The Mouse kinda cannot eat McD’s filet of fish for a while. Different league.

Oh, and the little message on the take-out boxes added to the experience.

Take-Out Boxes

Cute yeah?

The Mouse was a happy mouse. πŸ™‚

Stay safe and well.

Okay, so the only common element with this salad and an actual Caesar salad was the Romaine lettuce, but The Mouse had fun constructing it. Hee hee.

Romaine Lettuce

Wanted anchovies but doctor would probably go on a rant about way too much sodium.


At least they were lightly smoked and in oil.

Add Sardines


Add Lentil


Top with Faux Crab Salad

Not authentic, but The Mouse liked. πŸ™‚

Enjoy. Eat well.

Well, not really Summer eating, but hot weather food?

The CatΒ  has been trying to get rid of a perceived spare tire since coming back from her trip. Too many po’ boys she thinks.

Saturday, she stuck to salads.

Tofu Salad

Dinner, new sushi bar in the neighborhood, Tanuki. The Mouse tried for lunch earlier, wanted to share with The Cat.

Hamachi and Kampachi Salad

The Cat liked.

The Mouse had a nigiri plate.

Assorted Nigiri Sushi with Spicy Tuna Roll


Enjoy. Eat well.

Old Menu :(

The Cat’s lunch with client.

Ever since The Cat returned from the French Quarter, she’s been jonesing for po’ boy sandwiches.

Planned on a “rich-boy” (Tempura Oysters & Shrimp, Pickles, Slaw, Yuzu Kosho Tartar), think “upscaled” “po’ boy”.

Client also wanted to try their crispy shrimp gyoza.

Turns out the online menu is old (at least two chefs ago), rich-boy no longer offered, and crispy shrimp gyoza for dinner only. Boo!

They “settled” with …

Chopped Salad

Bacon, Tomato, Avocado, Parmesan, Garlic Shrimp, Asian Goddess.

The Mouse didn’t taste, but kinda sad looking. Just my opinion.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Cauliflower

Golden Raisin, Pine Nuts, Balsamic. Dunno about the taste, The Cat didn’t say.

Win some lose some. At least update the menu. Sigh.

Enjoy. Eat well.
