Paraphrasing JB, Hee hee.

The Mouse was in the mood for a fish sandwich, not the fried stuff from the fast-food places. First choice, since he was in the area was place near the naval memorials, recommended by a former co-worker, wait too long.

Second choice, golf course “nineteenth hole”, founded by Don Ho’s mom. You know, “Tiny Bubbles” fame? Nice view.

View from the Parking Lot

The Mouse was thinking about soup and sandwich, soup was corn chowder, too much dairy, sorry TMI.

Instead, The Mouse ordered a side salad and the fish sandwich.

Salad

Seasonal mixed greens, croutons, balsamic dressing. Nice.

Grilled Mahi Sandwich

Twin Filets Grilled and Served with Lettuce, Tomato and Tartar Sauce. Served on a Homemade Bun.

Classic, nothing gourmet, fish grilled well. Satisfied the craving. Server nice enough to give more of the balsamic dressing for fries dipping. Not malt vinegar but close.

No dessert, the ran out of sweet potato pie. Sigh.

Enjoy. Eat well.

By the Sea

Dinner. 53 by the Sea. Hawai‘i slash Mediterranean cuisine? Hmm.

Table View

Fully expected Jack Lord to be at the next table, in essence anyway. And The Ventures rocking in the bar. Okay The Mouse totally carbon dated himself. Hee hee.

Choya Ume Soda

Light, slightly sweet, good for summer.

Bread Dipping Oil

The oil was olive oil, but The Mouse got confused about the dark liquid, shoyu? truffle something? truffle shoyu? Salty and umami-ish.

Two types of rolls “plain” and black olive ciabatta. Plain went better with the dipping oil than the olive.

Escargot Stuffed Mushrooms

Spicy Tomato Cream, Crispy Crostini. The Mouse liked more than The Cat, she preferred Michel’s (more traditional garlic butter). The Mouse just needed a bowl of rice and a fried egg (escargot loco moco?). Hee hee.

Mahi Mahi

The Cat’s entree. Moromiso Macadamia Nut Crust, Kombu, Sauteed Local Vegetable, Clam Jus. Dish was good, could’ve used a touch more umami. A dash of shoyu maybe?

Roasted Duck

The Mouse’s order. Cranberry Walnut Honey Glaze, Asparagus, Sweet Potato, Lilikoi Demi. Well prepared, perfectly seasoned. Could’ve left off the lilikoi demi, just my opinion. The Mouse’s one minor “complaint”, skin wasn’t crispy (wasn’t supposed to be). Next time, The Mouse gonna bring his own torch. Hee hee.

Gelato/Sorbet Trio

Raspberry, Lilikoi, and Chocolate/Vanilla Hazelnut, with berries! Excellent.

Complimentary Dessert

Strawberry Shortcake with more berries.

The Famed Staircase

Shades of Rhett Butler? Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

On the way back from the Taste of Kualoa tour, made an impromptu stop at Temple Valley Shopping Center. The tour only whet our appetite, The Cat and The Mouse were hungry.

Menu Cover

The coffee shop used to be at another location, when they closed (before this blog even started), The Mouse didn’t know they moved to a different location. Lucky we drove by and looked. Food is not fancy nor gourmet, think old school coffee shop, and that’s okay.

The Cat’s Order

Vegetarian omelet, country potatoes, toast. There were four slices of toast, but, … things happen. Did I mention The Cat was hungry?

The Mouse’s Order

Grilled Mahi sandwich, fries, lettuce, tomato, pickle. Decent food (in a good way) and reasonable prices.

Another place for eats over on the windward side of SPAM land. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Mouse
