The Cat and The Mouse try try, Akira Japanese Restaurant. The Mouse feels half Japanese restaurant, half izakaya.

Braised Tendon with Turnip
Caviar Sushi

Not sturgeon caviar, flying fish, salmon, uni, and something else The Mouse couldn’t identify. Try try.

Miso Butterfish

The butterfish was well prepared. The Cat liked. πŸ™‚

The Cat has approved a future return. πŸ™‚

Be safe, eat good.

No sushi. Sushi bar sushi has to be eaten fresh dine-in, The Mouse’s opinion.

The Mouse was in-house most of the day. Picked up dinner.

Soft Shelled Crab

One of The Cat’s favorite.

Vegetable Tempura

Teri Chicken Bento

The bento was kid-sized (just right for The Mouse). Hee hee. Rice, chicken, gyoza, sweet potato fries. Lots of sauteed onions under the chicken. Mmm.

Be safe and well.

The Cat’s “new” discovery. She took one of her classmates for his birthday. Japanese restaurant.


“Scattered” sashimi over rice. Think deconstructed nigiri in a bowl, the casual cousin. πŸ™‚

Supposedly less skill required than sushi/sashimi masters. Maybe, even The Mouse could attempt. Hee hee.

Be safe and well.

The Cat suggested eating out for lunar new year eve (not Chinese). Japanese and pho combination place, close enough.

The Cat’s order:

Butterfish Misoyaki

The Mouse’s order:

Garlic Tofu

Both meals came with miso soup, salad, and rice. Separate dishes. That’s why the Manago Hotel plating. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

New restaurant in the neighborhood. Japanese/Vietnamese cuisine. At first the menu looked a bit daunting, especially the Japanese selections until you look closer. Three prices, first is the entrΓ©e, second is sashimi added, and the third is sashimi and tempura added. In reality, the prices are reasonable.

Spring Rolls

Becomes The Mouse’s (and maybe The Cat’s) new favorite spring rolls.

Eye Round Steak and Tendon Pho

The Cat threw in the vegetables before The Mouse could take a pic. The broth was well cooked, the leftover broth gelled. Thumbs up.

Ahi Belly Ginger


Chocolate Tapioca

The Mouse was happy, pudding was made with coconut milk, The Mouse is not a big fan of coconut milk, but better than dairy. πŸ™‚

The Cat has declared this restaurant is on the go-to list. Yay!

Stay safe and well.
