Last week’s dinner, epic for The Cat.

Started with a text to Chef H, our menu choices: Caesar Salad, lobster bisque, crab cake, Vitello Tonnato (to try), lobster risotto, and souffle for dessert.

Chef responded “Looking at the menu … I say leave it to Chef.”

Ok, sigh, he has never steered us wrong.

To The Cat, from Chef

The Cat’s cocktail.

Watermelon Martini

Chef’s tasting menu: Lobster Bisque, lobster in cognac, flamed at table (The Mouse didn’t take a pic).

Caesar Salad

Extra anchovies on the side for The Mouse. Nom!

Crab Cake

Black bean sauce, tomato coulis, tropical fruit garnish.

Vitello Tonnato

Yellowfin Ahi sashimi, oven-roasted veal, white tuna sauce, pesto and caper vinaigrette. The Mouse wanted to try based on the menu description. Try try. The Mouse thinks, could’ve used a shoyu wasabi (or Coleman mustard) dipping sauce, but don’t tell Chef. Jus’ The Mouse’s Asian palate.

Yuzu Sorbet

Palate cleanser. The Mouse could eat a bucket of this.

Wagyu Rib Eye, Morel Mushrooms, White Asparagus, Lobster Risotto

Chef (restaurant) flew the white asparagus in from Holland. Jet lag. Hee hee.

Grand Marnier Souffle




Orange Peel Fire Fountain

The Mouse always loves this part.

Banana Foster

Chef loves presenting this dessert. Locally grown apple bananas.

See? Told ya epic. If you notice, all of the items listed/requested were on the menu and more. So publicly, it’s Chef’s choice menu, but The Mouse privately had some input. 😉

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Cat’s and The Mouse’s semi-regular Sunday visit to Ruby Tuesday in the mall.

This month restaurant is running a special on half rack of baby back rib. The Cat ordered. Usually comes with two sides but The Cat optioned the salad bar as one of her sides and a baked potato for the other.

Ribs and Potato

Kinda reminded The Mouse of Manago Restaurant on Hawai‘i. Hee hee.

The Mouse ordered his regular three sides and salad bar. The Mouse also choose a baked potato as one of his sides. Instead of sour cream, chives, and butter, The Mouse “raided” the salad bar.

Baked Potato, The Mouse Style

Mushroom, ham, bacon, and croutons (freshly made, still warm). The Mouse still eating weird. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

We now return to regularly scheduled programming. Whenever the computer updates, The Mouse’s rhythm gets messed up. Even today, Apple is trying to update something. Let’s see if I can get something done.

The Cat had a lunch meeting at Ichiriki, a Japanese nabe restaurant.

Shrimp Appetizer


Raw Materials

Ground chicken, beef rib eye?, and veggies for the hot soup.

The Cat didn’t take a picture of the “final” dish, it was a business meeting after all.

The Mouse stayed home and ate “bachelor style”.

Soy Beans and Fish Steaks in Hot Green Chile



Looks like the computer is still acting a little finicky (iTunes is trying to update something).

Hope you had a great weekend.

Enjoy. Eat well.
