No, nothing like life or death battles in a galaxy far …

More like a tourist trap. After seeing the sunflower facility, The Cat and The Mouse were hungry (hangry?). Nearest place with food is Haleiwa. Cars to the horizon. Parked in the first space available. Nearest places were Mexican (line out the door) or tapas (tables available), went with tapas bar.

Prices were “reasonable”, portions were hmm, on the tapas size.

The Cat’s Flatbread

Menu description: grilled flatbread, mac nut pesto, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, heirloom cherry tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, fried egg.

The Mouse’s Hash

Menu description: fingerling potatoes, chorizo, bell peppers, caramelized onion, Mojo Rojo & Verde sauces, fried egg.

The Mouse added a side of bacon.


Side of apple wood smoked bacon. Super thin, a little anemic, just The Mouse’s opinion.

After brunch, The Cat and The Mouse still had room for dessert. Headed a couple of doors down to get gelato.

The Cat’s Kona Coffee Gelato

A nice double dip serving.

The Mouse’s Dragonfruit and Pineapple/Yuzu Sorbet

To The Mouse, his scoops seem like two half scoops. Again, Admiral Ackbar’s warning come to mind. Hee hee.

Oh well, we knew the place has evolved into a major tourist location.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Or pasta, semantics. Hee hee.

The neighborhood cafe.

The Cat paused her diet for dinner.

Molokai Sweet Potato Ravioli


Mushroom Risotto

A side, more for The Cat’s bento today.

Although The Cat said didn’t need long noodle/pasta, The Mouse ordered anyway.

Mushroom Spaghetti

The Mouse took home half for his bento today.

We were not going to order dessert, the gelato flavor screamed “try me”!

Tiramisu Gelato

Totally worth the calories. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Heard that Yauatcha in SPAM Land will be closing at the end of the month. Aww! While not an everyday restaurant (the prices were kinda steep). The Cat and The Mouse did like the place as a “treat”.

The Cat wanted to visit one last time (maybe).

Crispy Duck Salad

With pomelo, pomegranate and pine nuts. A fave.

Crispy Duck Salad, Top View


Leftover Crispy Duck Bun

Enough leftover for The Mouse’s din din. 🙂

Spicy aubergine, sato bean, okra and long bean
with peanut and dried shrimp

The #1 fave of The Mouse. Gonna miss this dish. May attempt at home.

Kona Coffee Gelato, Pineapple Yuzu Sorbet, Banana Lilikoi Gelato

To end the meal.

The Cat hinted she may want one more visit before closing, hope it’s not to close to the end date, might be a disappointment.

Enjoy. Eat well.
