Treats on the return.

So, the last time we were in the area, The Mouse spotted a cap he was intrigued with, but because we were in a rush to see sunflowers, The Mouse blew by. Filed in the back of his mind.

Since we were in the area … check it out. The old Wailua sugar mill, converted into a small shop and chocolate/coffee processing operation.

After a quick tour of the operations, The Cat found her chocolate covered coffee beans. She also picked up a chocolate bar (all Waialua chocolate) and a bottle of mac nut oil.

In the Basket

And yes, the item The Mouse was interested in. A SPAM cap!


Hee hee!

The Cat and The Mouse also found a new natural drink The Cat is liking.

The Trailer

Mush smaller than a truck. In another sugar mill converted into a shopping/eating complex.

Sugar Cane Juice

We googled it. The juice has health benefits as well as refreshing. Good deal!

Outside the Trailer

I think the owner wanted to show that she is authentic. Kinda cute. The Mouse shoulda thought faster and asked for some of the pulp to throw on the grass at home. Bringing a large trash bag next time. 🙂

To all our veterans, thank you.

Enjoy. Eat well.

??? years ago, The Cat landed on SPAM Land, fresh off the plane (FOP). Hey if IHOP can become IHOB, then … Hee hee.

So, since yesterday was “Independence Day”, we decided to also celebrate The Cat’s “independence day” at Yauatcha.

Rooibos Tea



Shoyu, chili sauce, pickled cucumbers, XO sauce. The Cat went for the XO sauce.

Crispy Soft Shell Crab with Almonds


Hand Pulled Noodles with Mushroom


Spicy aubergine, sato bean, okra and long bean
with peanut and dried shrimp

One of The Cat and The Mouse’s favorite dishes here.

Crispy Duck Salad

with pomelo, pomegranate and pine nuts.

Chocolate Pebble

Like a chocolate mousse thingy? Not too sweet. The white lump we think is yogurt.

Pineapple Sorbet, POG Sorbet, Kona Coffee Ice Cream

POG, passion fruit, orange, and guava. The next generation’s fruit punch. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Fish and Chocolate

No, not together, although, I would like to learn how to make a really good mole, then maybe? Hee hee.

Went back and got another piece of ono.


This time.

Ono in Mouse’s “Dashi” Broth

Sauteed, then poached, drowned, drunken, simmered (all semantics) in a water, shoyu, whiskey, mirin, and sea salt broth. Oh and canned mushrooms. The Cat ate.

Now for the chocolate.

Co-worker, originally from Russia via South Carolina (go figure), shared part of her homesick care package.


She ate them as a child. Nostalgia.


Not bad, better than the commercial stuff here. Thank for sharing.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Heading to more lab test (starting to feel like a pin cushion), bleh, and chiro, yay.

Fruit Arrangement

Came tied with a happy face balloon. 🙂

And a box of chocolate dipped fruit.

Chocolate Dipped

Apples, bananas, strawberries. Yum!

Shared the chocolate dipped fruit with The Cat. Ate the whole thing yesterday. Breakfast of champions. Hee hee.

Big mahalo to M. You made The Mouse’s day!

Enjoy. Eat well.
