Old School Lunch Counter

Stopped in here (The Mouse’s chiropractor doctor is nearby) to get a couple pastries, some for The Cat’s grab-n-go breakfast for the week, some for The Mouse. Hee hee.

Menu Cover

Since The Mouse was there … might as well get lunch. Hee hee again.

Counter View

No tables, counter dining only, like the old time diners. Several years ago, fine dining restaurants in SPAM Land touted a community table. Nothing new, these lunch counters are the original community tables. Everything old is new again. Hah!

Lunch Combo Special

Grilled chicken (meh), grilled mahiĀ (awesome), white rice, lettuce and tomato salad (with dollop of mayo). The only thing missing is food is not on a blue plate. Hee!

Plate comes with bakery specialty butter roll.

Butter Roll

Sliced in half, grilled on the flat top, with the bakery’s famous/infamous neon radioactive jelly (The Mouse’s description). Breaking it down, The Mouse thinks the jelly is fruit punch syrup with gelatin. Just a thought.

Butter Roll Prep

Even the uniforms are a bit retro (or maybe never changed at all).

Oh, and the take home pastries?


For The Cat: cornbread, blueberry and almond danish. For The Mouse, bear claw, and tuna and ham bun (last night’s dinner). šŸ™‚

The Mouse’s spine got adjusted, lunch counter plate lunch, butter roll with glow in the dark jelly, pastries for the near future. A good day. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Casting Fate to the Wind

I was striking out for lunch yesterday. The first place I wanted to try, no parking, the second place, no service. Finally, got a hit at the third place.


The Food Company (1020 Keolu Drive, Ā Kailua, Hawaii). They had an option on the local dishes list, a mix plate of three items.

Mixed Plate

Homemade hamburger steak, breadedĀ mahi mahi, and misoyaki grilled chicken (all the basic food groups, except pork). šŸ™‚ Brown rice and stir-fried veggies to make it a balanced meal. Yum.

Sometimes it’s good to not get your first choice. The surprises can be just as satisfying.

Heading off to the kitchen now.

Enjoy. Eat well.
