Repurposed

The Mouse eats … different … somtimes.

Often The Mouse orders a hamburger (not the MikeyD type), eats everything but the burger patty, and takes home the patty for future eats. Dunno why. Maybe to stretch the eating.

Always order rare so that the reheating doesn’t overcook.

Anyway, the two latest patties from Ruby Tuesday and Orchids at Halekulani (see previous posts).

Ruby Tuesday Burger Patty Bento

Okra, roasted carrots, dried parsley (an industrial-sized container in the warehouse kitchen that The Mouse has been using quite liberally.

Orchids Burger Patty Bento

Canned spinach, roasted carrot, natto, dried parsley.

The Mouse thinks the natto on the patty, best thing ever! Will be topping burgers with natto going forward. Nom! Hee hee!

Enjoy. Eat well.

In The Cat and The Mouse case, it was a 2.5-fer. The Cat suggested lunch at Orchids Restaurant. Entree plus appetizer or dessert for special price. The Mouse was a little hesitant. Smaller portions? Still hungry after?

But, try try.

Lobby Decoration

When the restaurant’s name is Orchids …

The Cat’s order.

Crema All’Aragosta

Kona Maine Lobster Bisque, Lemongrass.

What is Kona Maine? Dunno, tasted good.

Homemade Lasagnette

Fresh Chef Pasta, Kahuku Prawns, Scallops, Avocado, Lightly Spiced. Think deconstructed lasagna, The Cat kept thinking won ton skin. Look Funn noods? Hee hee.

The Mouse chose.

Fried Calamari

One of the best The Mouse has eaten, not greasy, super crispy. Nom!

Orchids Burger

8 oz. Prime Burger, Shiitake Sauté, Romaine, Tomato, Onion, Bacon, American Cheese, Guacamole. More nom.

Server suggested we cannot leave without indulging in their signature coconut cake. Twist our arms/paws.

Halekulani’s Signature Coconut Cake

Chiffon Cake, Coconut-Amaretto Cream.

A little on the pricey side for lunch, but not not “break the bank, OMG what were you thinking!” pricey. More affordable than dinner. Not everyday, but once in a while. Hope to be back in the not too distant future.

Enjoy. Eat well.

After a hiatus, back at Ruby Tuesday.

Kinda same-o-same-o.

Half Rack

For The Cat.

Classic Burger

For The Mouse.

No Mudd pie today. The Cat still trying to lose some “fluffiness”.

Instead, fruit and cottage cheese from the salad bar.

The Cat Playing with Food

The Mouse still trying to determine if influence is Rorschach or Pollock or someone/thing else. Feel free to add two cents. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Weird, not weird, semantics.

The Mouse wanted some kick to the natto lunchtime. Only hot sauce in the warehouse kitchen was Tabasco, nope, not it, open box of package sriracha sauce, dunno if these were prospective samples or the warehouse actually sells, The Mouse “acquired” one for “testing” purposes.

Sriracha Packet

Not the “Rooster” brand “Eagle”.

The Mouse’s Natto Bento

This version of sriracha is not as “bright” spicy, The Mouse’s opinion, a “richer” spice profile. A warming spice, not an initial hit spice. The Mouse thinks he likes this one just a little better.

Dinner was a “what if” and compromise “chance’em” experience. Started with a MickyD basic burger, The Mouse wanted to add liver pâté and bacon, but neither in the near vicinity. So, The Mouse made do, peanut butter and sliced ham.

The Mouse’s Modified MickyD Burger with Kid-Sized Fries

And shiso from the pot. And yes, The Mouse picked up a happy meal.

Have a great weekend.

Enjoy. Eat well.
