Two-Fer

The Mouse got sidetracked. Original plan was to pick up a burger and baked potato (substitute for fries) from one of the restaurants at the mall but MickyD’s is running a promotion of two sandwiches for six bucks. The pake Mouse took the bait. Hee hee.

MickyD Haul

Two Quarter Pounders (no cheese, light ketchup, extra pickles), chocolate chip cookies, and large coffee (because The Mouse is trying to wean off diet colas). All for considerably less than the burger plate from the restaurant. The haul lasted for two meals, so even better bargain. Thumbs up. 🙂

The coffee wasn’t the greatest, but dollar for a large, The Mouse can live with it.

Stay safe and well.

Birthday lunch for Mrs. P. at Mariposa, a milestone birthday (not revealing age). Hee hee. Chef P. made arrangements with Chef L. (executive chef), who trained under Chef P. for some specials.

Complimentary salad.

Seared Ahi Tuna Salad

Excellent start, dressing was the bomb. Nom!

Everyone except The Mouse ordered smoked pork chop.

Smoked Pork Chop

A bed of risotto, grilled vegetables, not sure what the condiment was, everyone more than liked. 😉

The Mouse went with his go-to order, hamburger, medium rare.

Mariposa Cheeseburger sans Cheese

The Mouse likes to order “regular” burgers at nice restaurants. Not fancy shmancy over the top “gourmet burger” (think truffles and Kobe), but a well executed burger. Chef L. did not fail to deliver. Nicely charred on the outside, perfectly pink on the inside. Mmm! 🙂

Complimentary dessert was peach meringue tarts with torched meringue. The Mouse thought he took a pic but did not. Fail. Sigh. Very good though.

Chef L. learned well. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

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.
