Escape – Engage – Indulge. That’s the tagline of the restaurant Saturday.
A newly reimagined restaurant I was curious about.
The Cat’s White Peach Nigori (Unfiltered Sake)
The Mouse’s Iced Tea
Mac Nut Tofu
Mac nuts instead of soybeans. Winner! Imaginative. One of our new favorite foods. The texture is a lot rougher than soybean tofu (coarser on the tongue), but the taste more than makes up for the difference. Didn’t even need the soy “broth” that accompanied the dish. Just ate it plain.
Plus the restaurant donates part of the proceeds to charity.
Eat & Support
Hearts of Palm Tempura
Another not-so-usual dish. Another winner. Ate it with the accompanying salt (bottom right of the plate) instead of the usual tempura dipping sauce.
Odor-ko Style Wafu Steak
Eight ounce New York sirloin.
Miso based sauce.
Daikon, green onion, and garlic chip garnish.
Sautéed onions and mushrooms.
Fried potato wedges.
Not so epic as Chef W’s steak plate, but still very good.
Miso Marinated Butterfish
Large piece. Could’ve been a bit more charred for The Cat’s taste. Personal preference.
Soft Shell Crab Roll
Instead of a bowl of rice.
Ramen and Chasiu close up
Because it’s tradition. Not bad, the chasiu was nicely cooked and thick. Had better ramen at dedicated ramen shops, But for tradition sake …
Lilikoi Panna Cotta
Extremely dense. Nice flavor, not too sweet.
Peanut Butter and Chocolate Crisp
Chocolate phyllo pastry, peanut butter mouse, whipped cream. Does it get any better? I think not.
This concludes the epic weekend.
Happy Monday. Sigh.
Enjoy. Eat well.
