The Mouse bought Bread and Butter Chips, Pickled Okra, and Smokey Tomato Chutney. Nom!

Ohh! Did stop by the grocery store yesterday and picked up The Mouse’s favorite kimchi vegetable.

Turnip Kim Chee

Gonna be good with natto! Natto and kim chee breath for the co-workers! Hah!

Light dinner.

Food for The Cat’s bento.

“Faux” Kalua Pork

Pork cooked very nicely. And because it was chunks and not one piece, cooked faster (about 1/3 the time). Moist and tender, shredded with a spoon.


An added plus, the chunks made smaller pieces than a whole “butt”. The Mouse might be using pork “adobo” chunks more often. πŸ™‚

Charred Brussels Sprouts

Just olive oil, no salt. The Brussels Sprouts will balance out the saltiness of the Kalua Pork. Think Kalua Pork and Cabbage reimagined. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Not any mouse, The Mouse. Hee hee.


Steamed okra, guacamole, natto. Squishy and sticky. Hee hee.


Kiwi, tomato, starfruit.

No, The Mouse is not turning to the dark side.

A hot pot event is scheduled for this weekend. πŸ™‚

Enjoy. Eat well.

Eating Vegetables


Spinach and Artichoke Flavored Hummus

Not the most photogenic but tasty.


Use the cucumber to dip into the hummus.

Why did the cucumber slices remind me of the movie Beetlejuice. Does The Mouse have to make an appointment with Dr. Sigmund? Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Heard that Yauatcha in SPAM Land will be closing at the end of the month. Aww! While not an everyday restaurant (the prices were kinda steep). The Cat and The Mouse did like the place as a “treat”.

The Cat wanted to visit one last time (maybe).

Crispy Duck Salad

With pomelo, pomegranate and pine nuts. A fave.

Crispy Duck Salad, Top View


Leftover Crispy Duck Bun

Enough leftover for The Mouse’s din din. πŸ™‚

Spicy aubergine, sato bean, okra and long bean
with peanut and dried shrimp

The #1 fave of The Mouse. Gonna miss this dish. May attempt at home.

Kona Coffee Gelato, Pineapple Yuzu Sorbet, Banana Lilikoi Gelato

To end the meal.

The Cat hinted she may want one more visit before closing, hope it’s not to close to the end date, might be a disappointment.

Enjoy. Eat well.
