Lazy Saturday

The Cat, finishing up tax returns to meet deadline. The Mouse, kinda lazy.


Boiled frozen soybeans, wakame seaweed, toasted sesame oil, Kaua‘i sea salt.

Grocery shopping at the nearby grocery store (for pork foot).

Steak Plate

Steak for The Mouse, rice and corn for The Cat’s bento for Monday. Rice, barley, corn, turnip greens, and roast pork (also bought from the grocery store).

Heading out to the farmers market and “brunch”.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Not much today.

Roasted Carrot

Oil and salt.

Dried Kiwi

Reminds me of the Chinese bakery/candy store (got these at the chain supermarket).

That’s it for today.

Thanks for dropping by.

Enjoy. Eat well.

No, not a small kid, and not a potato. Hee hee.

Toaster oven tomatoes. The Mouse’s new favorite way to eat tomato.

Happened kinda by accident. A container of grape tomatoes going slightly wrinkled.

Grape Tomatoes, Slightly Wrinkled

Not the greatest for salad. What to do?

Avocado oil, salt, pepper, 300 degrees, 30 minutes, toaster oven.


I know, done before, but first time for The Mouse. The Mouse liked. Hee hee.

Tried it again the next night, regular tomato.

The Mouse’s Plate

TOT, laulau, shiso leaf, apple banana. Sorry, no plating presentation, popped the whole plate into the toaster oven to roast the tomato and warm the laulau (from the grocery store). Still yum. 🙂

I know, The Mouse eats weird, but it’s The Mouse’s plate. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Saw this place on former co-worker’s Facebook:


For geezers like The Mouse and The Cat, used to be the old Yum Yum Tree location.

Lunches are “not sit down service”. Order at the counter, pick-up at the kitchen window, find your own table, take-out boxes and plastic utensils. Dinner (I’m told) is sit down service.

The Cat ordered off of the daily special menu.

“Game Day” Special

First time (except for tempura) The Cat orders a plate with deep fried food (she saw soft shell crab). 🙂

Shrimp, fish, calamari?, along with the soft shell crab (two!), rice and salad. The Cat liked.

The Mouse ordered:

Portobello Mushroom and Vegetable “Burger”

On taro bun with fries. Well made.

Restaurant also has a poke counter.


Cute ya?

Mussel Poke with Sesame Seed Topping

Jus’ to try. Not bad. 🙂

The Cat approved a revisit in the future, maybe for dinner? Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

A break from the Sunday routine. Lunch with friends in town. Lobster King.

High two?

Picture on the wall. The Mouse thought it was hilarious. Hee hee.

Restaurant also runs a wholesale business. Comped us a plate of Samoan crab to introduce/promote.

Samoan Crabs

The Cat and friends went at it. The Mouse, crustacean in shell challenged. Pass.


Another challenging dish for The Mouse. Not as severe as the crab, The Mouse tried an easy piece. More for The Cat and friends.

Soft Tofu with Seafood Gravy

Probably not the exact name, more the description. This dish is something The Mouse can handle. 🙂

Spicy Eggplant

The Cat’s choice.

Green Beans with Pork

The Mouse’s choice.

Didn’t order any carbs. The Mouse was kinda jonesing for a bowl of won ton mein or jook.

Still get a kick out of that lobster picture. Too bad the claws can’t make the shaka sign. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.
