Egg McMuffin from Micky D

Shiso from our bucket. The Mouse thinks all (okay, most) sandwiches should come with a shiso option. Hee hee.

Ready to Nom

Ran an errand to Michael Mina’s “food court” concept at International Marketplace at Waikiki (same complex as Yauatcha), The Street. Chef Mina carries Chef’s chocolates (at “The Chocolate Bar”, cute ya?) and The Mouse wanted to check it out.

Location

Impressive. What an opportunity for the Chef.

Display

Like jewelry. Hee hee.

Box

Dark chocolate “lava rocks” (mac nut “bon┬ábons”). Simply boxed and ribboned. The Cat and The Mouse likes the presentation even though they are still trying to work out some of the kinks.

Gift Bag

Again, very subtle.

Fun fact, The Mouse was their first customer … ever! ­čÖé

On the way back, drive-thru, Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen, ran out of chicken sandwich (What!??) Ordered a fish sandwich.

Fish Sandwich

Not bad, pretty good actually, especially if compared with Micky D “Filet-o-Fish”. At least Popeye’s has a bit of green. Sure wish I had the foresight to bring more shiso.

Of course, can’t go to Popeye’s without a side order of red beans and rice.

Red Beans and Rice

Now, The Mouse has never experienced “authentic” red beans and rice, but for what it is (fast food), The Mouse likes Popeye’s.

Funny, The Cat also went (separately) to The Street to check it out, missed each other by an hour.

Flatbread

 

Salad

With decent parking at somewhat reasonable prices (with minimum purchase), seems like The Cat and The Mouse will be doing more exploring of the new International Marketplace, even though it’s in Waikiki.

Last snippet.

Breakfast yesterday.

Zippy’s Breakfast Bento #1

Corned beef hash, SPAM, scrambled eggs, rice. Should’ve ordered brown rice, too early, couldn’t think, before coffee. Corned beef nicely “charred” with kogi┬ábits. Ate the rice and corned beef hash, saved the SPAM and eggs for lunch.

SPAM and Egg Sandwich

Two slices of whole wheat bread at the office, slightly toasted, SPAM, eggs, packet mayo. Not bad for unscheduled, impromptu sandwich. Missing that shiso again.

As mentioned in the previous almost not posted post (clearly operator error), gonna be a late one tonight.

Enjoy. Eat well.

No slow cooking this week, no pig foot, no chicken feet. Boneless, skinless chicken thighs. I know, I know, boring, but quick ‘n’ easy.

Bought a tray of five pieces chicken thighs, boneless and skinless. Each night, half a thigh for The Cat, half a thigh for The Mouse.

Celery and Chicken Stir-Fry

With wasabi flavored sesame seeds. ­čÖé

Stir-Fried Okra and Chicken

Frozen okra, I think I didn’t cook it long enough, a little underdone.

Boiled Okra with Chicken

Definitely cooked through this time. Sprinkled with olive oil and Himalayan salt. Nom.

Miso Soup with Vegetables and Chicken

Quick and easy.

And of course through this all, The Cat has her bowl of noodles with whatevers in the refrig.

Example of Noodle Bowl for The Cat

Seaweed, pak choi, corn, chicken, etc.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Museum Eats

The Cat’s lunch. She wanted to see somekinda┬áexhibit and thought today was a free day. Nope, missed it. But since she was already there …

Soup and Sandwich

Half turkey sandwich, corn chowder.

Tried to post another topic, but The Mouse couldn’t prep the pictures in time, schedule was kinda kapakahi today. Tomorrow.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Okay, finally got all (I think all) of the pictures. Since it’s a perceived milestone birthday (for Aunty M), The Cat wanted to go to someplace different (and maybe special). ┬áLunch reservations at Yauatcha Waikiki, specializing in dim sum and tea.

Entrance Decoration

 

Dessert Display

 

Macaroons

 

Interior

Now, this ain’t your typical Chop Suey joint, think fusion between a higher-end dim sum establishment and a European night club.

Condiment Set-up

Chili oil, chili paste with anchovies (or could be dried shrimp, XO sauce?) pickled cucumber (these knocked The Mouse’s sock off), and soy sauce.

Jasmine Tea

Very nicely fragranced (perfumed?).

Har Gau (Shrimp Dumplings)

 

Bamboo Dumpling

 

Crab and Kalo (Taro) Croquette

 

Prawn and Crispy Beancurd Cheung Funn

 

Roast Duck Pumpkin Puff

 

Pak Choi with Ginger

Another winner! Definitely order again. Perfectly cooked and seasoned.

Of course, birthday meal, have to have noodles.

Three Mushrooms Hand Pulled Noodle

Another dish The Mouse would be happy to order again.

Raspberry Delice

Raspberry, Manjari chocolate, lychee. Presentation and taste. Nom!

Rich and decadent. Perfect for b-day.

Complimentary Dessert

Matcha green tea, lavender vanilla, and I forgot the last flavor. Aunty M was full.

Wrapped up for later

Aunty M, you da bestest. Happy b-day!

Enjoy. Eat well.

Sunday Breakfast

An interim post. Planned to post about Sunday lunch, Aunty M’s B-day, couldn’t downsize the pictures in time. So, for now.

The Cat’s Pancakes and Eggs

The Early Bird. Ironic don’t you think? Or maybe appropriate, depending on your point of view.

The “Paniola”

Bowl of chili, rice, and scrambled eggs, no substitutions. Not to worry, The Mouse did not consume all the rice, half went to The Cat to soak up her yolks.

Will work on Sunday lunch pictures and post soon.

Happy B-day Aunty M!

Enjoy. Eat well.
