A “dangerous” question when talking with Chef H. The Mouse dropped off something for Chef H. (he just bought a new “toy” and The Mouse found an accessory thought he would like). Chef mentions he is making lemon biscuits for brunch service. The Mouse passed on the information to The Cat, and reservations were made form brunch. Hee hee.

Muesli and Lemon Biscuit

This is The Mouse’s bowl. the regular order added yogurt and Devonshire cream.

Abalone and Wild Mushroom Chowder
Tomato Salad

Chef topped the salad with several thick shavings of truffles. Mmm, a treat.

Of course, since we are at his kitchen, The Mouse asked for a few anchovies for the salad.

Kona Crab Eggs Benedict

Locally produced egg. The Cat nommed.

Slow Roasted Prime Rib

With potato and veggies. The Mouse nommed, and nommed the leftover too. 🙂

Tapioca Pudding
Mango Sorbet with Berries

Here’s the kicker. there were several cancellations and no-shows for brunch. Chef had extra biscuits, he sent us home with a box.

Lemon Biscuits

Thanks Chef H! Mmm! 🙂

More accessories on the way.

Stay safe and well.

Another errand in the Kalihi area. The Mouse has been interested in Guieb Café for a bit. Saw an internet post of their Honey Acai French Toast, The Mouse drooled. Hee hee.

Honey Acai French Toast

Topped with berries, banana, granola and honey, server recommended honey on the side to control the sweetness. The Mouse liked the warm French toast contrasting with the cold scoop of acai sorbet. Mmm! The granola and fruits added nice texture too. The Mouse would order again.

Another dish The Mouse wanted to try was the Bao Bun Benedict.

Bao Bun Benedict

Charsiu pork belly, fresh cucumber & cilantro with hoisin hollandaise. Hollandaise on the side because the server wasn’t certain there was no dairy in the sauce. Cute yeah?

Dish was great except kitchen slightly grilled the bao bun, changed the texture from soft and pillowy to kinda “stale”. Deep sigh.

The Cat was drawn to The breakfast wrap.

Cali Wrap

Spinach tortilla, avocado, bacon, tomatoes, spinach, cheddar cheese and scrambled eggs. Served with fresh fruits, salsa and sour cream. The Cat liked.

A return visit soon. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

The usual Sunday routine is farmers market, “brunch”/lunch, mini hibernate, “light” dinner.

Yesterday was a little different. “Early” breakfast (before farmers market).

The Cat’s order.

Fire-Roasted Portobello Mushroom & Avocado Benedict

With grilled local tomato & fresh spinach. Hash brown (crispy), and fruit slices.

The Mouse’s order (French Toast sandwich) took a little assembling.

Ani’s Cinnamon Bread French Toast Sandwich

The Mouse thought order would come assembled, but, it was DIY.

Two Farm Fresh Eggs, Four Strips of Bacon

Menu says two strips of bacon, and two link sausages, The Mouse asked to make it four strips of bacon, skip the link sausage. Hee hee.

The Mouse’s Open-Faced Sweet Bread French Toast “Sandwich”

A little drizzle of syrup and shoyu (that salty sweet thing). 🙂

Bacon was crispy enough to eat in hand.

Dinner was an “adventure”. Post soon.

Enjoy. Eat well.
