Friday Eats

The Mouse kinda temporarily fruit and vegetabled out. Needed more meat. Not saying not going back to more fruit and veggies, just Friday. πŸ™‚

Laulau and Kalua Pork

Double order of laulau. Nom! No worries, one laulau and half of the kalua pork are for another day, maybe today. πŸ™‚

Also at the grocery store.


One sausage also added to Friday’s meat meal. Rest for later.

Ok, The Mouse is satisfied. One to the next meal. Hee hee.

Fifty percent off breakfast, this weekend only. The Mouse tried after blood test. Place used to be owned by one of The Cat’s clients but sold. New owners, hence the soft opening.

Kalua Pork Loco Moco on Fried Rice

No extra charge for the fried rice (sometimes, at other places, fried rice is an upcharge), so The Mouse went with it. Two eggs, nom! In hindsight, with the kalua pork and gravy, the fried rice was a flavor bomb. Too much for The Mouse to handle. But tasty. The rice kinda looked like broken rice. Wonder if it was due to the tossing in the wok (The Mouse is assuming a wok was used) or maybe the flattop?

And since it was fifty percent, and a blood test was involved …

Ube Pancakes – Small Stack

Pancakes with Okinawan sweet potato cream. Jus’ to try.

Overall, good job, except for the fifty percent off, a little pricey for The Mouse, if prices were just a little bit lower, say a dollar or two, The Mouse would be more comfortable. Maybe that’s just the “pake” in The Mouse. Jus’ my opinion.

Enjoy. Eat well.

For The Mouse anyway. Doctor has “limited” The Mouse’s mayonnaise intake. Sigh, oh well, probably better for The Mouse anyway. But what to substitute (you know it’s coming, hee hee).

Mac salad (with lots of mayonnaise) has been a big part of The Mouse’s eating norm for a long time. Part of the SPAM Land culture of plate lunches, so taking away the mac salad is kinda traumatic.

A worthy substitute.

Kalua Pork Plate, All Rice, and Natto

The natto provides a similar mouth feel, at least to The Mouse (plus The Mouse loves natto), and the mustard / shoyu mix to the natto is tasty. πŸ™‚

Ham Omelet and Natto with Rice

Nom! Dare The Mouse say it, natto maybe even better than mac salad. Oh the scandal. Whoo! Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Food for The Cat’s bento.

“Faux” Kalua Pork

Pork cooked very nicely. And because it was chunks and not one piece, cooked faster (about 1/3 the time). Moist and tender, shredded with a spoon.


An added plus, the chunks made smaller pieces than a whole “butt”. The Mouse might be using pork “adobo” chunks more often. πŸ™‚

Charred Brussels Sprouts

Just olive oil, no salt. The Brussels Sprouts will balance out the saltiness of the Kalua Pork. Think Kalua Pork and Cabbage reimagined. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Place


No cook, easy peasy food for The Cat’s bento. Staff is starting to recognize The Mouse. Hee hee.

Roast Pork Plate

Enough for two bentos (and more, stay tuned tomorrow).

And since The Mouse was there …

Kalua Pork Sandwich

Just a little something something. Comparable to Bob’s BBQ in Kalihi.

And leftovers from the grocery store.

Pastele Stew


Enjoy. Eat well.
