Our favorite Japanese bistro was full up (only three tables available due to the thing that must not be named). A spur of the moment turn into a different Japanese restaurant: Yajima-Ya (just a couple of blocks from Sakura Terrace).

The Cat tried the bento special:

Bento Special

Teri chicken, sashimi, nigiri sushi, tempura, mackerel. The Cat liked.

The Mouse went with something more like rice and gravy.

Vegetable Curry

The Mouse liked too.

The Cat took home food to supply two weekday bentos. 

Stay safe and well.

The Cat hibernated, The Mouse didn’t feel like driving to town, too far.

Newly opened sushi bar/restaurant near the neighborhood grocery store. The Mouse has been there before (soft shell crab episode).

The Cat’s Bento

Broiled mackerel, miso butterfish combo.

The Mouse’s Bento

Teri chicken, vegetable tempura combo.

Stuffed and Fried Avocado

The Mouse not sure what the stuffing was, have to pay more attention to the menu next time.

Stay safe and well.

One of our favorite Japanese restaurants trying to cope with the ongoing lock-down, not lock-down by the local government.

Teishoku only available for take-out, eat-in is ala carte. Oh well, different food.


Ahi and avocado, and California. The ahi and avocado was nom, the California was okay.

Japanese Omelet

Another nom, one of The Mouse’s favorite dishes at Japanese restaurants. If it’s listed, The Mouse orders. 🙂

Heart of Palm Tempura

To The Mouse, tasted like bamboo shoot tempura. Not bad.

Hamachi Kama

Really big fish. The Cat liked.

Stay safe and well.

First, yesterday there was a power outage, no way to post. 😦

Ok, onward.

Last Sunday’s lunch, original plan was to go to the art museum, The Cat’s choice. Their website was a little confusing. The Cat and The Mouse took a chance and drove to town. Unfortunately the museum and attached cafe was closed.

Plan B. Sakura Terrace. From previous post, timing, everything.

The Mouse got his omurice.

Omurice Lunch

Miso soup and takuan. Mmm.

The Cat ordered maguro steak bento.

Maguro Steak Bento

The maguro (tuna) was lightly seared (still sashimi inside) and covered with a grated radish ponzu combination. The Cat liked. For the price, it was a lot of food. Quality was excellent. The Cat wants to return.

A little dessert.

Coconut Sorbet

Light and fresh.

Quality ingredients, cooked with respect. Awesome job.

The exterior of the restaurant is surrounded by bamboo and greens, almost garden-like. Which, coincidentally is the environment of the museum cafe. So kinda a good plan b. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

That funny time between Christmas and the new year. The Mouse “volunteered” to go into work yesterday. Ugh!

A little treat for himself for that “offer”.

Inari, Shiso Onigiri, Hot Dot, Tofu Patty, Corned Beef Hash Patty (Mostly Potato, in a good way)

To top off the day, The Cat brought home leftover dessert.

Mixed Berry Pie

Super ono!

Overall, The Mouse had a good day food-wise. Weekend-wise? At least yesterday? Not that great. But, got some work done with less interruptions.

Any plans for new year eve? The Cat and The Mouse are still trying to decide.

Enjoy. Eat well.
