Fish Fry

Grocery store sold out of the bento The Mouse was looking for, visited two in the neighborhood. “Settled” for a container of fried butterfish.

Fried Butterfish

The Mouse thinks pieces are “leftover” after the filets are used for bento. The Mouse tried a piece, super crispy, almost like a chip. Not bad.

“Assembled” The Cat’s bento, rice, roasted yam, scrambled egg, fried butterfish, and boiled Napa cabbage. The Cat will report feedback.

Be safe and well.

The Mouse had a fish day.


Smoked Salmon Sandwich, Fruit


Fish Bento

With vegetable gyoza. Not the best (pre-packed food inherently has quality issues), but cheap enough. Hee hee.



The Mouse had a good day. 🙂

Be safe and well.

Fried Fish

The Mouse did some contract work over the weekend. The Mouse’s opinion, more than full-time work, part-time schedule, always behind.

Picked up a quick lunch from 7-Eleven (on route).

Fried Fish Musubi

The Mouse’s opinion again, better than a Filet-o-Fish, and cheaper too. 🙂

Speaking of which.


The Mouse picked one up for dinner, strictly for comparison purposes, hee hee.

No cheese, light tartar sauce, add pickles. The Mouse’s preferences.

Stay safe and well.

Yesterday’s special from the bento shop around the corner.

Omulett (sic) Rice

Omelett (sic) Rice

One of my favorite Japanese dishes.

Unfortunately, a little after 12:00 noon, they were sold out, I got there about 12:15. Sigh.

Settled for their nori bento (cheapest on the menu).

Nori Bento

Nori Bento

Pickled ginger, braised burdock root, fried fish, fried fishcake, two sheets of nori, dried bonito flakes, and rice. All for under four bucks. Cheap eats.

Dried Bonito Flakes on Rice

Dried Bonito Flakes on Rice

I do like the dried bonito flakes on rice. I guess a not bad “consolation prize” alternative.

Dinner was a “raid” of the refrig and pantry. Wanted to get to bed early. More of an “eat to live” sorta meal.





I know, more dessert food, but, they were handy.

Parboiled Turnip Greens

Parboiled Turnip Greens

Leftover from The Cat’s lunch, didn’t fit her bento container.

Surprisingly, the beans (sweet) and the greens (slightly bitter) paired nicely.

And I was able to get under the covers early. 🙂

Happy Friday!

Enjoy. Eat well.

As mentioned here and here, Saturday was kind of a busy day out of the house. We decided on Korean cheap eats, around the corner from The Cat’s office (Chodang Restaurant, 451 Piikoi Street, Honolulu, Hawaii).

I ordered my usual, bibimbap.


I know, I know, it’s not in a stone pot, no crispy rice on the bottom. But for $4.99? I ain’t complaining (a side note: the stone pot or dolsot bibmbap at this place is almost triple the $4.99 price). Especially when the side dishes are included.


It was “cheap eats” night after all. 🙂

The Cat went with a combo dinner, fried fish (yellow corvina) and tofu soup.

Fried Yellow Corvina

Tofu Soup

The fish was a little too salty (we didn’t know the fish was slightly salt preserved). And the soup was a little too spicy, The Cat forgot to order the soup mild.

So a hit (sort of) for The Mouse, and a miss (times two) for The Cat.

Total check amount was under $15.00 (before tax and tip).

Enjoy. Eat well.
