Sunday Lunch

For reasons too long to explain (let’s just say Christmas time kinda gets hectic), ended up eating here.


Old school neighborhood eatery.

The Mouse tried once before, first time for The Cat.



More Interior

Fans and umbrellas everywhere.

Although not as old, kinda reminded The Cat of Manago Hotel on big island.

The Cat’s Order

Miso butterfish and tempura combo.

The Mouse’s Order

Pork Tofu and tempura combo.

The Cat and The Mouse both agree tempura is their specialty.

Enjoy. Eat well,

The Mouse

The Cat comes home today. The Mouse started Christmas shopping last night. Only time The Cat wouldn’t see what The Mouse buys for her. I think The Mouse did well.

Tempura dinner at the mall.

Pickles, Shredded Turnip, Bean Sprouts


Miso Soup


Side Order Pickles

So colorful. 🙂

Vegetable Tempura Donburi

Eggplant, hearts of palm, lotus root, kabocha, asparagus, kale.

Who said eating vegetables had to be boring? Hee hee. Nom!

Enjoy. Eat well.

Last weekend, time shift and all. Hee hee.

The Place

We tried it once before, seemed like they were aiming toward a younger crowd. Last week, the lunch crowd seemed more The Mouse’s age. Maybe it was a re-branding? Dunno.

Matcha Tea

A good start.

Meal Accompaniments

Pickles, side (fried fish cake), salad, miso soup.

So far so good.

Ordered something The Mouse hasn’t tried before.

Ahi Zuke and Yamaimo Don

Soy sauce based marinated ahi sashimi and mountain yam over rice. Yum.

And, a little something to “cleanse the palate” at the end.

Yuzu Sorbet

Overall, a little pricey, definitely not cheap eats. A nice occasional treat “once in a blue moon”. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Yeah, I know, time lag …

Across the street from the farmers market location.


Hot pot.

The Cat ordered the lunch special.

Wagyu Beef and Ground Chicken

With lots of vegetables.

The Mouse, not that much into hot pots, ordered sides and a bowl of rice.

Spicy Tuna with Crispy Seaweed


Mushroom Medley

Both were very good. One sock off.

The Cat’s plate even had a piece of salmon.

The Cat’s Bowl

And dessert.

Green Tea Shave Ice

Lots of shave ice. 🙂

The Cat liked it enough to add to the list of “can return” places to eat. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

We now return to regularly scheduled programming. Whenever the computer updates, The Mouse’s rhythm gets messed up. Even today, Apple is trying to update something. Let’s see if I can get something done.

The Cat had a lunch meeting at Ichiriki, a Japanese nabe restaurant.

Shrimp Appetizer


Raw Materials

Ground chicken, beef rib eye?, and veggies for the hot soup.

The Cat didn’t take a picture of the “final” dish, it was a business meeting after all.

The Mouse stayed home and ate “bachelor style”.

Soy Beans and Fish Steaks in Hot Green Chile



Looks like the computer is still acting a little finicky (iTunes is trying to update something).

Hope you had a great weekend.

Enjoy. Eat well.
