The Cat’s schoolmates, from small-kid time. Of course dinner with Chef H (not at his house, his kitchen).





Lobster Bisque


Caesar Salad

Tableside service, always a winner.

Side of Anchovies

The Mouse always politely requests, servers are always very accommodating. 🙂

The Tin

The Mouse is always so tempted to bring a baggie and … restraint. Hee hee.

Fish Course

Potato crusted (The Mouse forgot the type of fish, white), shrimp. Nomz!

Lamb Lollipops



Yuzu sorbet. The Mouse’s favorite.

Looks like kitchen bought new sorbet containers.

Old Time Milk Containers?

Cute ya?

Steak Course

Grilled peach, haricot vert, broccoli/cauliflower hybrid, onion rings. Nomz!

Chocolate Souffle

And Chef H’s favorite dessert to present.

Bananas Foster

As always Chef H. respect! Absolute credit to your profession. Humbled that you consider us friends.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Dinner with The Cat’s brother. Michel’s at the Colony Surf. Chef’s choice.

Amuse Bouche

Smoked pork, poached mango, smashed Okinawan sweet potato. Nom!


Signature lobster bisque, tableside flambe.


Shaved endive, shrimp, grapes.

Seafood Course

Grilled mahi, asparagus, luau ravioli? (didn’t quite understand Chef H), lobster claw, smashed Okinawan sweet potato. The Cat, CB, and The Mouse liked.


Kalamansi sorbet with blueberry.

Meat Course

Bacon wrapped Filet Mignon, foie gras, starfruit, pickled beets, Haricots Verts, smashed potato, mushroom risotto, demi-glace. The Mouse’s favorite dish of the night. 🙂


Bananas Foster, tableside flambe.

As always, food and service, and view, never fails to exceed expectations. CB was impressed.

On a side note, The Mouse will be off-line for several days. Posting “placeholders” for that time. Be back soon.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Favorite aunty, “unique” cousins. Michel’s at the Colony Surf.

Amuse Bouche

Salmon, Okinawan sweet potato, spinach, and The Mouse forgot the rest. Tasty!


One of the restaurant’s signature.

Kualoa Oysters


Caesar Salad

With anchovies! 🙂

More anchovies

The Mouse always asks for extra, always accommodating. Fine dining service with a smile.

Lobster Bisque

Another signature, finished at the table with flambe lobster meat.

Michel’s Ocean Bounty

Lobster, scallop, oyster, blackened ahi, and forgot what else.

There was also a seafood en papilotte dish that The Mouse somehow didn’t get a picture of, still getting used to the new phone.

The flourless chocolate cake for dessert also did not make it into The Mouse’s phone. Sigh.

Hope they enjoyed themselves, always good to get together with family. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Back to Michel’s. Last time, with the group from Australia, The Cat and The Mouse could not fully appreciate the food. Too busy playing “hosts”.

Original plan was to order from the menu, items that we wanted to try. Chef Hardy had other plans.

Amuse Bouche

Salmon tartare on toast, a demitasse of Vichyssoise.

Iced Harvest of the Sea

King Crab, Maine Lobster, Abalone, Ahi Poke, Hamachi, Ahi Sashimi, Oysters,  Prawns, Spanish Galician Octopus

The receding sun was playing havoc to picture taking. It’s all good.

Speaking of sunset …

Helix Escargots Bourgogne

Half-a-dozen French snails, in Michel’s famous herbed-garlic butter. The Cat was happy, and getting full.

Tableside Prepping


Warm Baby Spinach Salad

Garnished with Macadamia Nuts Over Warm Bacon &  Marinated Shiitake Mushrooms Drizzled with Onion Vinaigrette

One of the best spinach salads (it’s all about the dressing).

Sorry, have to get ready to leave for work.

Will continue later. Stay tuned.

Enjoy. Eat well.
