More boar than hog? Hee hee!

Location

Crispy Brussels Sprouts

One of the better preparations. The Cat and The Mouse liked. 🙂

Prosecco

The Cat had a glass.

Mongolian BBQ Back Ribs

Mmm delicious.

Grilled Pork Bao Buns

The pork belly had a good balance of meat and fat, the pickled vegetables were yummy. The Mouse felt the texture of the buns was too dense, not pillowy fluffy enough. Maybe kitchen needs to find a Chinese manapua master. Hee hee.

Sauteed Hamachi

Not bad.

Pineapple Skillet

Maple rum sauce, oat crumble, coconut milk sorbet. All non-dairy. The Mouse was happy. 🙂

Be safe and well.

Greenish Bunny

The Mouse was kinda weirded out. To The Mouse the bunny looked a little zombie-ish, what do you think? Hee hee.

First Plate

Plumeria House Signature Misoyaki Butterfish, Chicken Marsala with Sauteed Mushrooms (shiitake and morel mushrooms), Atlantic Salmon, Fennel and Orange, Ahi Sashimi, Pickled Ginger, Spring Leg of Lamb (end piece). Mmm x 5. Hee hee.

Plate #2

Poached Shrimp, Mixed Spring Greens topped with Smoked Salmon, more Salmon, fennel, and orange, and more Misoyaki Butterfish. More Mmm!

Dessert Plate

Lilikoi Meringue Tart (best on the plate), Chocolate Mousse Cake (second best), Carrot Pineapple Cake (third), Hot Cross Bun (really dry), Coconut Macaroon (honorable mention), Ginger Snap.

Musical Styling

Brunch music. Other than not too many people were paying attention, it is background music after all, the gig seemed idyllic (fresh air, cool breeze, sunshine). The Mouse left him a small tip just to let him know he was appreciated.

Be well and safe.

The Cat and The Mouse love chef’s choice dinners, especially when it is Chef H. We hope Chef H likes to do them too. Hopefully it lets him get a little creative and off menu. Dinner was last weekend with The Cat’s classmate.

Calf Liver “Dumpling”

In chicken broth. Chef asked us earlier if we eat calf liver, we replied yes. He made this dish, he said he didn’t want to overwhelm us. The Mouse could’ve eaten a whole bowl of this. Throw in some greens, some French bread, saimin, or rice and call it the meal. The Mouse would’ve been thoroughly happy and full. Hee hee. The Mouse wants to wrap the mixture in wonton wrappers and make wonton noodles. Mmm. Just a thought. 🙂

Caesar Salad

Topped with extra anchovies. Mmm again.

Mussels

Everyone had a herb cream sauce, The Mouse got a tomato sauce. Both were so tasty, the bowls almost didn’t have to go through the dishwasher. Just kidding. Hee hee.

Salmon Course

The Mouse forgot the whole description (there was asparagus, noodles, tomato, and black truffle) but remembers it was soooo gooood. The Cat’s classmate never tried truffle before so The Mouse gave her his, there will be other dishes in the future. Right, Chef H? Hee hee.

Pork Chop with Foie Gras

With some kinda fruit sauce. Delicious. The Mouse hopes Chef H is having as much satisfaction creating these dishes as we are enjoying/scarfing them. 🙂

Cherries Jubilee

Tableside, with flames/flambé and all. The Cat’s schoolmate was impressed.

Stay safe and well.

Years ago, The Cat had lunch at the Waikiki branch of Wolfgang’s Steakhouse. At the time the restaurant had lunch specials at special prices. The Cat had an errand in Waikiki yesterday so thought to check it out again.

The lunch specials are still offered but the soup and salad combo was no longer on the menu. The Cat ordered just soup.

Lobster Bisque

The Cat thought is was okay. Soup was off of the regular lunch menu, not special priced Chef H’s is better.

The Mouse ordered the classic burger. Special lunch priced.

Classic Burger

The Mouse requested rice substitute for fries and onion rings because The Mouse also ordered fish and chips to share with The Cat. Too much fried sides. 🙂

Price for the burger was half of the regular lunch menu. The Mouse was happy. Coarse ground beef.

Fish and Chips

Also on the lunch special menu. Fish and chips is not a regular lunch item so could not determine the “cheap eats’ factor, but price was reasonable.

If in the neighborhood, The Mouse wouldn’t mind revisiting for another burger. But be warned, parking is a b****.

Stay safe and well.

Part II.

The Cat’s order:

Bubu arare crusted big glory bay salmon, whole grain mustard vinaigrette, organic greens, tomato, spanish onions, cucumber. The dish was a salad but kitchen provided a bowl of rice when requested. The Cat liked, salmon was perfectly cooked (just over raw in the center).

The Mouse order from the wine bar menu.

Certified angus beef sliders: black pepper mayo, swiss cheese, house made potato bun (dairy intolerance). Very coarse ground. The Mouse liked. The Mouse could definitely order this again. The Cat said the meat smell was too much for her.

For the “fries” portion, The Mouse ordered ‘patatas bravas’: crispy fried potatoes, togarashi mayo, furikake, tobiko, katsuobushi.

Think spicy tuna sauce but on potatoes. These were really good, served hot enough that the katsuobushi was still “dancing”. Paw up.

As good as the potatoes were, The Mouse still preferred the fried Brussels sprouts. Nest time.

Stay safe and well.

The Mouse

p.s. The Mouse got his second vaccination for the thing that cannot be named. He feels a little safer now.
