The Cat had another errand on the west side of SPAM Land. Lunch at one of our “new” favorite locations. Mandalay Restaurant. They used to be downtown which was a hassle for The Mouse. They downsized and moved to the Kaimuki area. Accessible parking, less crowded. Yay!

Steamed Tripe
Eggplant (Mild)
Seafood Fried Noodles
Custard Tart

Appears that The Cat will be making semi regular errands in that area, The Mouse is looking forward to more visits. Mmm. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

Lately, for some reason, The Mouse has difficulty finding lunch on Saturdays. Yesterday was no exception. He couldn’t change lanes fast enough to reach a Japanese musubi and curry shop, the nearby golf course restaurant was closed for a private event. Ugh! The Mouse made his way here.


The Mouse has been here before, a little out of the way for him, not as far as the other side of the mountain, but still, next town over.

Char Siu and Roast Duck on Rice

One of their lunch specials. good taste, good quantity, fair price. The Mouse took home half.

Also ordered a lunch plate for take-out, bento prep.

Lunch Plate

Beef with vegetables, cold ginger chicken, pot roast pork, rice, crispy wonton.

Two plates, four decent meals. Good deal.

Too bad the place is not closer. Maybe just takes a little more effort, and gas, on The Mouse’s part.

Heading out to the farmers market then brunch with doctor friend at Chef H’s restaurant. More exciting and expensive pics to come.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Chinese eats at favorite neighborhood chop suey “palace”.

Egg Drop Soup

The Mouse could make at home, but good to have someones else cook, temporarily.

Stir-Fried Bitter Melon

Always a favorite vegetable. If The Mouse gets ambitious down the road, maybe stuffed bitter melon?

Pot Roast Pork with Gravy

OMG! One of the best pork dishes in recent memory, full of flavor, and tender to the core! Repeat for sure!

Steamed Buns

The Cat’s favorite, up there with rice.

Steamed Buns, Pot Roast Pork, Perfect Combo

And a little sweet ending for The Mouse.

Fortune Cookie, Almond Cookie

The food? Enough for dinner, dinner the next night, and two bento for The Cat, one bento for The Mouse. Good deal!

Enjoy. Eat well.

A change of pace, The Mouse wanted Chinese Chop Suey after the Sunday farmers market. The Mouse’s favorite neighborhood chop suey house.

Chow Funn

With vegetables and char siu. Yum.

Moo Shu Pork

So far, normal chop suey fare. Hee hee.

Moo Shu Wraps

The Mouse has a hunch the wraps were tortilla, not Chinese. No matter, semantics. Hee hee.

Pot Roast Chicken

Hmm, not quite pot roast chicken. The Mouse’s opinion. This was crispy skin chicken with gravy and water chestnuts as a disguise.  The Mouse thought pot roast chicken was slow braised with rich gravy. Still good, more research needed.

Roast Pork with Choi Sum

Greens. 🙂

Loads of leftovers. Mouse bento (plural). Yay!

Enjoy. Eat well.
