No, nothing like life or death battles in a galaxy far …

More like a tourist trap. After seeing the sunflower facility, The Cat and The Mouse were hungry (hangry?). Nearest place with food is Haleiwa. Cars to the horizon. Parked in the first space available. Nearest places were Mexican (line out the door) or tapas (tables available), went with tapas bar.

Prices were “reasonable”, portions were hmm, on the tapas size.

The Cat’s Flatbread

Menu description: grilled flatbread, mac nut pesto, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, heirloom cherry tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, fried egg.

The Mouse’s Hash

Menu description: fingerling potatoes, chorizo, bell peppers, caramelized onion, Mojo Rojo & Verde sauces, fried egg.

The Mouse added a side of bacon.


Side of apple wood smoked bacon. Super thin, a little anemic, just The Mouse’s opinion.

After brunch, The Cat and The Mouse still had room for dessert. Headed a couple of doors down to get gelato.

The Cat’s Kona Coffee Gelato

A nice double dip serving.

The Mouse’s Dragonfruit and Pineapple/Yuzu Sorbet

To The Mouse, his scoops seem like two half scoops. Again, Admiral Ackbar’s warning come to mind. Hee hee.

Oh well, we knew the place has evolved into a major tourist location.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Chinatown Eats

Last Saturday. Smith and Kings. A play on their location. One of the “new” businesses revitalizing the neighborhood. Intrigued by their brunch burger.

Brunch Burger

Bacon Jam, Mixed Greens, Cheddar, Truffle Aioli, Sunny Egg, Deep Fried French Toast Bun. Breakfast Potatoes, or House Grits.

Not bad, Half sock off maybe? Too many things going on. Bacon jam was more like crumbled bacon than jam. But good to try.

Also tried a side of roasted pork belly.

Roasted Pork Belly

Now, you may ask why, when Nam Fong (famous for their Chinese roast pork) is but a few steps away, would The Mouse want to order pork belly? Try try.

The verdict on the pork belly. It’s not Chinese roast pork, but, a very very good attempt at treating pork belly as it should be cooked. Well prepared. The Mouse would definitely order again.

Enjoy. Eat well.
