An epic eats chef’s choice from Chef H:

Split Pea and Ham Soup
Poke with Caviar, Shiso Leaves, Pesto, and Crispies

One of the best non-traditional poke The Mouse has tasted. Mmm.

Foie Gras, Salad, Raisin Toast Point

Another mmm moment. The Mouse took some of the foie gras home to savor later, The Cat scarfed hers. Hee hee.

John Dory, Steamed Rice, Almonds, Greens, Tomato Coulis

Fish was very moist and tender. Another mmm. ๐Ÿ™‚

Lemon Sorbet

Palate refresher. ๐Ÿ™‚

Lamb Chops

Usually, The Cat kinda avoids lamb because of the smell but she didn’t mind Chef’s dish. Hardly any lamb smell.

Peach Melba with Mango Sorbet

Perfect ending to epic meal. Thanks Chef H again!

Stay safe and well.

Dinner at The Cat and The Mouse’s favorite place, friend’s birthday.

First:

Abalone Soup

Split pea. Inventive chef.

Second:

Iced Seafood

Lobster, sashimi, poke, etc. oh my! Nom!

Third:

Salad

The Cat and guest had Caesar, Chef changed up The Mouse’s dressing to a red wine blend because of The Mouse’s dairy issue. The Mouse did get anchovies. ๐Ÿ™‚

Fourth:

Portabello Mushroom Crusted Salmon

Balsamic vinegar glaze, tomato coulis, fiddle head fern, oven roasted tomato. The salmon soft like buttah. Mmm.

Intermezzo:

Meyer’s Lemon Sorbet

Fifth:

Snake River Farm Kurobuta Pork

Truffle madeira sauce, haricot vert beans, mushrooms. One of the best pork dishes outside of pork belly The Mouse experienced. Mmm!

Sixth:

Fresh Strawberry Jello with Fresh Mint and Gelato

The chef explained to us his fruit extraction machine that steams the fruit and extracts pure juice. He hauled it from Germany a long time ago. The Mouse wonder if the machine could work on mango. Hee hee.

Chef usually makes epic chef’s choice meals but this one was Tolkien epic. Thank Chef H!

Stay safe and well.

Favorite aunty, “unique” cousins. Michel’s at the Colony Surf.

Amuse Bouche

Salmon, Okinawan sweet potato, spinach, and The Mouse forgot the rest. Tasty!

Escargot

One of the restaurant’s signature.

Kualoa Oysters

Yum!

Caesar Salad

With anchovies! ๐Ÿ™‚

More anchovies

The Mouse always asks for extra, always accommodating. Fine dining service with a smile.

Lobster Bisque

Another signature, finished at the table with flambe lobster meat.

Michel’s Ocean Bounty

Lobster, scallop, oyster, blackened ahi, and forgot what else.

There was also a seafood en papilotteย dish that The Mouse somehow didn’t get a picture of, still getting used to the new phone.

The flourless chocolate cake for dessert also did not make it into The Mouse’s phone. Sigh.

Hope they enjoyed themselves, always good to get together with family. ๐Ÿ™‚

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Mouse
