The Mouse frequently does it, The Cat has fits. Hee hee.

Yesterday’s eating log.

Breakfast

Kalua pork and cabbage over rice. Could be lunch or dinner, The Mouse decided for breakfast πŸ™‚

Lunch

Nico’s at Pier 38, supervisor treated the group.

Furikake Pan Seared Ahi: Fresh tuna Ahi steak coated with Japanese dried seaweed and sesame seeds then cooked to order, from rare to well done. Served with Nico’s ginger garlic cilantro dip.

Okay, this could be lunch, but The Mouse thinks more dinner.

Dinner got a little complicated. The Mouse was jonesing for bakery stuff. Dinner rolls.

First stop Zippy’s. No dinner rolls, but The Mouse was enticed with some of their offerings.

In the Box

Bread pudding, cornbread, pumpkin coffee cake, pumpkin donut (baked not fried), and a mochizada? Mochi flour made into a malasada-like pastry. Much less oil than a regular malasada (at least the ones from Leonard’s anyway), much denser. not bad. Buy again? Maybe.

A visit to old school institution on this side of the island.

Front Door

Cash only, no checks, no credit/debit cards. Old school.

A package of dinner rolls.

Package

No individual, had to buy a dozen.

Must say though these are the bomb! Just buttery enough, soft, not soggy, probably not health food, but comfort food. Thumbs up, socks off.

Dinner Rolls

Also had a bowl of oatmeal, to make-up for breakfast. Hee hee.

Now, what to do with the rest of the package, hmm, maybe SPAM sliders or breakfast sliders. Nom!

Enjoy. Eat well.

Lately, for some reason, The Mouse has difficulty finding lunch on Saturdays. Yesterday was no exception. He couldn’t change lanes fast enough to reach a Japanese musubi and curry shop, the nearby golf course restaurant was closed for a private event. Ugh! The Mouse made his way here.

Front

The Mouse has been here before, a little out of the way for him, not as far as the other side of the mountain, but still, next town over.

Char Siu and Roast Duck on Rice

One of their lunch specials. good taste, good quantity, fair price. The Mouse took home half.

Also ordered a lunch plate for take-out, bento prep.

Lunch Plate

Beef with vegetables, cold ginger chicken, pot roast pork, rice, crispy wonton.

Two plates, four decent meals. Good deal.

Too bad the place is not closer. Maybe just takes a little more effort, and gas, on The Mouse’s part.

Heading out to the farmers market then brunch with doctor friend at Chef H’s restaurant. More exciting and expensive pics to come.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Cat Eats

Two of The Cat’s lunch pics.

Shoyu Pork

Little Japanese take-out place in a courtyard next to The Cat’s office. Newly discovered by The Cat. She will be frequenting more often.

Smoked/Braised Pork Shank

At the Irish pub down the lane from The Cat’s office.

The Mouse tried a little of both. Both were nom. πŸ™‚

Enjoy. Eat well.

A pit stop for The Cat and The Mouse between Kona and Hilo.

Sign

Quaint, rustic restaurant. Mix of tourist and locals. Menu reminded The Mouse of tourist menus back before the Hawai`i Regional Cuisine movement. Interesting.

Panko Crusted Fish Sandwich

The Mouse order. One of the better fried fish sandwiches in recent memory. Oven baked planks of potato.

Chicken Salad in Papaya Half

The Cat’s order. The Mouse remember small-mouse time on the menu. Wow!

Still “exotic”.

Highlight was the restaurant’s pies.

Mac-nut cream pies

Super old school, nothing wrong with that. Server gave us an extra piece because it was “damaged”. Hee hee. Score!

Oh! The Mouse had to show you the bathroom signs. Who said this place is a throwback to another time? For the reading and emoji enabled.

Repurposed

The Mouse eats … different … somtimes.

Often The Mouse orders a hamburger (not the MikeyD type), eats everything but the burger patty, and takes home the patty for future eats. Dunno why. Maybe to stretch the eating.

Always order rare so that the reheating doesn’t overcook.

Anyway, the two latest patties from Ruby Tuesday and Orchids at Halekulani (see previous posts).

Ruby Tuesday Burger Patty Bento

Okra, roasted carrots, dried parsley (an industrial-sized container in the warehouse kitchen that The Mouse has been using quite liberally.

Orchids Burger Patty Bento

Canned spinach, roasted carrot, natto, dried parsley.

The Mouse thinks the natto on the patty, best thing ever! Will be topping burgers with natto going forward. Nom! Hee hee!

Enjoy. Eat well.
