Kapiolani Seafood Restaurant. First tried last week for yum cha/dim sum. The Cat wanted to try dinner menu (dim sum not served during dinner hours).

Scrambled Eggs with Bitter Melon

Dish reminded The Mouse of Okinawan goya (bitter melon, eggs, tofu stew). Not bad, eggs were a bit overcooked but still tasty.

Chinese Broccoli with Dried Fish Bits
Oxtail Stew, Red Wine Flavor

Slightly sweeter than what The Mouse is used to, first time try for The Cat (usually oxtail soup). Well made, kinda pricey, still worth it. Not an everyday order.

Be safe, eat good.

Asahi Grill. Their history is confusing to The Mouse. They started in a bowling alley. After that, the history gets confused for The Mouse. Browsing online menu. Omurice and Okinawan bitter melon stir-fry. Try try.

Turns out online was not updated. No omurice. 😦

The Mouse ordered steak stir-fry instead.

Steak Stir-Fry

A happy substitute. Too many onions for The Cat.

The Cat went with the bitter melon stir-fry.

Bitter Melon Stir-Fry

The Cat liked.

Both orders came with choice of mac salad or tossed greens. 🙂

The Mouse continues to search for omurice.

Be safe and well.

Okinawan restaurant, comfort food.

Japanese Eggplant with Shoyu Pork
Sliced Pork with Bitter Melon and Tofu

The restaurant makes a coffee gelatin, one of The Mouse’s favorites. And it is non-dairy, whoo! Whipped cream can be added on request.

Coffee Gelatin

Just the right amount of sweet mixed with coffee. 🙂

Be safe and well.

Another unexpected late night for The Cat.

The Mouse got Chinese take-out from the neighborhood chop suey.

Chinese Take-Out

Mongolian beef

Pork with bitter melon


The Mouse must say for “commercial” jai, this batch was really good. Okay, not as good as Aunty M’s jai, which took days of prep and precise methods, but for time saving, worth it.

Enough food for dinner and two-and-a-half lunch bentos. Good deal.

Enjoy. Eat well.
