This week, there were days The Mouse traveled light to work. No bento box or breakfast bowl to haul.

Plate lunches.

Chicken and Eggplant

Nearby Thai take-out. Not bad, kinda pricey, but on this day, The Mouse missed the lunch wagon. Sigh.

Kalua Pork with Cabbage Plate Lunch

From the lunch wagon, almost missed him again, reasonable price and bigger quantity. Have to set a timer on the phone.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Mouse got a tour of the warehouses. Very excited. No pictures, proprietary purposes.

And the employee discounts, although there are a few restrictions, can be awesome.

The Mouse’s first purchase, almost two pounds of oxtail, for the weekend. The Mouse has to check later for pork cheeks and beef tongue. All the meat cuts that were price prohibitive as a non-employee.

Mouth watering in anticipation.

The Mouse’s take-out on the way home.

Kalua Pork and Rice – Mini Plate

The Cat’s bowl of soup.

Turnip Greens and Bamboo

The Mouse is deciding between Western and Asian style oxtail stew. Decisions, decisions.

Enjoy. Eat well.

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.
