His “weapon of choice” … natto!

SPAM Omelet with Natto

Breakfast (or in this case, dinner) of champions. The Mouse adds natto, not on the menu (just clarifying)

Neighborhood take-out joint makes breakfast all day. Whoop!

Spicy Eggplant and Grilled Chicken with Natto

Valentine’s Day dinner for The Mouse (The Cat is in tax season mode), Valentine’s dinner is “rescheduled”. The Mouse took out a portion of the eggplant and chicken to share with The Cat. Added natto.

So, a little TMI, The Mouse had a little tummy trouble last weekend. Natto helped him finally get back to “normal”. Hee hee.

Hopefully this weekend, The Mouse goes shopping in Chinatown. Yeah!

Enjoy. Eat well.

Place had good reviews, The Mouse had an urge to try.


I know, hospital cafeteria, but, write up was intriguing (from their website).

The Bistro is Adventist Health Castle’s cafeteria, located in the hospital’s lower level and open to the public.


In keeping with the traditions of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, The Bistro emphasizes good health.

Several features distinguish The Bistro from the cafeterias in most hospitals:

  • Although some of our dishes are made with dairy products or eggs, no meat at all is served.
  • We emphasize fresh foods. At every meal, there is always a selection of cooked fresh vegetables, fresh fruit, and a salad bar.
  • We take pride in not using dishes that are pre-prepared. Nearly all of our entrées are made from scratch. As much as possible, we use individual ingredients, not pre-packaged combinations.
  • Although not all of our dishes are moderate in fat and sodium, we always offer something that is.
  • We always offer at least one entrée that is strictly vegan—containing no dairy products or eggs.

The Mouse’s plate.

Mock Beef Broccoli, Vegan Lasagna, Roasted Eggplant and Bell Pepper

Not bad, bearing in mind this was a hospital after all. I think in trying to lessen the salt and oil, the chef over seasoned the dishes slightly. In The Cat’s words, “kinda medicine-y” taste. But price was decent, and try try.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Local neighborhood take-out joint. Used to frequent under previous owner. After ownership changed, Yelp reviews were not favorable.

After yesterday’s dentist “ordeal” needed comfort food. Impromptu “give it a shot”.


Previous name was May May BBQ, go figure.

Went with one of The Mouse’s “benchmark” (is this the correct use of the word?) dishes to determine the establishment’s “cred”. Sorry TMI.

“Kalua Pork” and Cabbage

Okay, The Mouse is getting technical here, but this one of The Mouse’s favorite dishes, so each chef “gotta get it right”. Pork was not done in an imu, definite liquid smoke taste. But, flavor was well balanced, not too salty, good porky flavor. Meat was tender but not “fall apart”, a good thing. Cabbage to meat ratio was good (could’ve used a little bit more cabbage, but minor). I know right? Since when is too much meat a bad thing, In this case, in The Mouse’s opinion, if the Kalua pork is well seasoned, ratio of meat to cabbage should be about 1/3 to 2/3. Overall though, good job. On the “order again” list.

And since I was there, and lunch was late, and teeth were somewhat clean (I know, The Mouse is just rationalizing, Hee hee).

Deep Fried “Gau Gee” and Steamed Pork Hash

Gau gee was another winner, fresh fried, still tongue burning hot, “glass shattering: crispy. Pork hash was more “meh”. Not bad, but The Mouse has had better.

Heading to the new Morimoto (Iron Chef) spot tonight. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.
