Part of the eating events this past weekend.

Herringbone Waikiki.

The Cat’s Wine

Rosé I think.

Brussels and Pecans

One of The Cat’s favorites.

Roasted Mushroom and Local Egg

Becoming one of The Mouse’s favorites, could’ve used a bowl of rice tho’. Just sayin’.

Margherita Flatbread

More like a pizza, too much for just the two of us, even with pills, The Mouse was gassy, sorry TMI. Heh heh.

And of course …


The main reason to come to “oyster hour”. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

As mentioned previously, Christmas Eve dinner at Herringbone. The Cat, The Mouse, and a couple of friends and associates (orphans in a storm). 🙂

California Avocado Toast

Romanesco, crispy parmesan, tomato confit, Fresno chili.

Not bad, The Cat preferred the avocado toast from Il Lupino.

Yellowtail (Hamachi) Crudo

Truffle yuzu (what’s that!?), crispy garlic, green onion.

Not bad, more than “meh”, The Mouse thinks The Cat would’ve probably preferred an izakaya or sushi bar preparation.

The Cat’s order:

Local Snapper

Farmer market vegetables, citrus miso glaze. Again not bad, The Cat thought the fish was just ever so slightly overcooked. And you know with white-fleshed fish, once you pass that line, it’s all downhill from there.

The Mouse’s order:

Miso Mushroom “Carbonara”

Udon, snap peas, farm egg, chilis.

The Mouse didn’t mind his order, with the caveat that there’s probably a similar dish at a ramen joint at sixty-percent less. Maybe the mushrooms raised the price. Sigh.

Bok Choy and Mushrooms

Crispy taro, island vinaigrette.

The crispy taro was good, except The Mouse didn’t rescue it from the broth fast enough, edges got soggy. More long beans than bok choi. The vinaigrette gave the dish a sorta southern collared greens vibe. The Mouse is still deciding if that was a good thing.

Overall dinner to paraphrase Maxwell Smart/Don Adams …

Would The Cat and The Mouse return? Yes, with the caveat for happy hour only.

Mele Kalikimaka to those so inclined. Have a great day to all!

Enjoy. Eat well.

Yeah, I know, time lag …

Across the street from the farmers market location.


Hot pot.

The Cat ordered the lunch special.

Wagyu Beef and Ground Chicken

With lots of vegetables.

The Mouse, not that much into hot pots, ordered sides and a bowl of rice.

Spicy Tuna with Crispy Seaweed


Mushroom Medley

Both were very good. One sock off.

The Cat’s plate even had a piece of salmon.

The Cat’s Bowl

And dessert.

Green Tea Shave Ice

Lots of shave ice. 🙂

The Cat liked it enough to add to the list of “can return” places to eat. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.
