The Mouse’s.

Kalua Pork Sandwich

No BBQ sauce, ever. Kinda messes with the flavor of the kalua pork (just The Mouse’s opinion).

However, now, The Mouse is okay with a couple of drops of ponzu sauce on the sandwich, just to give the taste a hint of vinegar/acid. Nom!

Stay safe and well.

Leftover pastries from the warehouse.

Ham and Cheese Croissant, Tuna Bun

The Mouse made soup. Not really made soup. More like open cans and throw everything into a pot kinda “made”.

Tomato, Tomato Soup, Coconut Milk

Chopped the tomato, and everything into the pot.

Chunky Tomato Soup, The Mouse Riffs

Oh yeah, also threw in a spoonful or so of canned corn (with water), just ’cause The Mouse found it in the refridge. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

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. 🙂


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. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

Ever since The Cat visited Louisiana, she has been infatuated with the po’ boy sandwich (fried oyster and soft shell crab). Kinda hard to find po’ boy sandwiches here at SPAM Land. Newly opened Cajun style restaurant at the nearby mall.


There was soft shell crab, just not in a po’ boy. The Cat opted for a fried oyster sandwich with a side of clam chowder.

Clam Chowder

“Creamy New England clam chowder loaded with diced potatoes and chopped clams topped with bacon bits.” The Cat said not bad. The Mouse didn’t taste (forgot his lactase enzyme pills). But there’s bacon on it! Can’t be all bad. Hee hee.

Fried Oyster Po’ Boy

“Your Favorite Fried dish in a Louisiana style sandwich dressed with house-made cole slaw, tomatoes, pickles, and a spicy remoulade sauce.”

While not from a Louisiana kitchen, The Cat was satisfied. Sufficient oysters to cover the sandwich.

On the recommendation of the server, The Mouse ordered a catfish po’ boy.

Catfish Po’ Boy

Substituted cole slaw for fries. The Mouse really likes the cole slaw and remoulade sauce in the sandwich. Messy, but very tasty and fresh.

The next time, The Mouse may request a soft shell crab po’ boy. Charge a little extra, might be worth it. Hmm.

Stay safe and well.

Middle Eastern dish from a “French” bakery, owned by Vietnamese. Fusion? One of the accounting staff is heading to medical school. Controller bought lunch for the section. The Mouse wanted to try something different. Sometimes, be careful what you wish for.

Falafel Banh Mi

Falafel, Harissa Hummus, Firecracker Sauce, Pickled Carrot & Daikon, Avocado, Cucumber, Cilantro. To The Mouse, the pickled carrot and daikon and the falafel kinda clashed in flavor, once the vegetables were removed, and eaten separately, the sandwich was pretty good. The bread was really good (better be since it’s supposed to be a French bakery).

The Mouse could only eat half. the other half was eaten for dinner. By that time the falafel kinda got squishy. Became more of a bean spread than falafel. Not as appetizing. Hee hee.

“Nothing ventured, nothing gained.” 🙂

Stay safe and well.
