Basalt

The Mouse has been wanting to try Basalt at Dukes Lane for a while. But being located in Waikiki and not knowing where to park kinda hindered the try.

Since location is practically empty, The Cat and The Mouse finally tried, especially since prices were lowered for take-out plus an additional percentage off.

Packaging

.

Pork Ribs

Spicy pineapple slaw, waffle fries, BBQ sauce. We substituted rice for the fries. The Cat was impressed with the amount of food, the price, and the packaging. Good job!

The Mouse had a burger. Again.

Basalt Burger

8oz wagyu beef patty, cheddar cheese, brioche bun, lettuce, tomato, sweet onion, Hawaiian Island dressing, french fries. The Mouse 86’ed the cheese and substituted rice for fries. Medium rare. Excellent.

Executive Chef Keith Kong recommended dessert.

Grand Marnier Mousse Cake

Dark chocolate devil’s food cake, raspberry sauce, mixed berries. Rich and decadent. Nom!

While the restaurant still offers take-out as they slowly re-open for sit down service, the discount is pau. Sigh.

Still, the prices are reasonable. When things settle down, The Cat and The Mouse probably will venture into the tourist jungle for a sit down.

Stay safe and well.

Restaurants are still in take-out mode. Monday dinner.

Hamburger, Baked Potato Substitute for Fries

Ribs, Mango Kiawe Sauce

Teri-Chicken Plate

Family style, take a little bit of this and a little bit of that. Enough food for The Cat and The Mouse to take two bento each for lunch.

🙂

Stay safe and well.

I know, not earth shaking. The Mouse has been trying to figure out what he can and cannot digest dairy-wise. Even with lactase supplements, which reduce the side-effects of not digesting lactose to a degree, sometimes there are unwanted reactions. Butter is supposedly low in lactose.

The Mouse tested the other night.

Burger and Baked Potato

Ruby Tuesday at the mall allows substitution of fries for any of their sides, free. Yay!

Between fries and baked potato, The Mouse will most time choose a baked potato, doesn’t feel as heavy in his stomach.

The Mouse usually likes his baked potato, butter only, sometimes bacon and chives. Sour cream would be a no, The Mouse didn’t want to push his luck.

To be cautious, The Mouse took a lactase supplement dose.

Result, no unwanted after effects. Okay, there was just a tiny amount of gas, but nothing to be concerned about. 🙂

TMI? Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Mouse feels like he had a minor setback from the surgery. Doctor said progress is proceeding but maybe The Mouse was not fully prepared for the reality.

The back story, as part of the operation, doctor inserted a Foley catheter into The Mouse (which in itself was pretty uncomfortable/self conscious). The tube was removed this past Friday. And as a result, The Mouse’s “plumbing” is a little “lazy”. Control (both on and off) is a little unsettled right now (sorry TMI).

Long story short, The Mouse did take-out yesterday, less drama/trauma. One of the “go-to” places … Zippy’s

Burger Combo

Burger, fries, large drink (diet, not green river). Zippy’s burgers are in-between MikeyD’s and “gourmet” burgers. Not huge, not tiny either, not fancy, perfect for the situation yesterday.

Vegetarian Chili

The Mouse’s favorite “non-authentic” chili. 🙂

Bread Pudding, Whole Wheat Brownie/Blondie

Dessert, always there for you, good times or bad. Hee hee.

Doctor says the bladder muscles have gone through trauma, have to reset. Ugh.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The place we were planning for after Sunday farmers market was experiencing bathroom issues. So, a detour to the neighborhood “caffe”. The Cat and The Mouse were not disappointed.

Bowl of Berries

.

Norwegian Smoked Salmon Breakfast

The Cat’s usual.

Burger

The Mouse’s, notice the shiso leaves? The Mouse picked from our bucket on the way out, nice flavor addition to the burger.

Blueberry Bread Pudding

Meal started and ended with berries. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.
