The Mouse saw this place featured on one of the food show and wanted to try.

Sign

Outside

Not resort, neighborhood. Side of the highway. “Off the beaten path” you might say.

Inside, like walking into someone’s garage, converted into a kitchen/dining area. Super quaint/rustic.

The Spread

The menu, super simple. Lau lau, kalua pig with cabbage, rice, poi, lomi salmon, mac salad, haupia, kalolo. The Mouse thinks we ordered everything on the menu.

Awesome food. Again, not “gourmet”, but down-home real food.

According to a friend that lives nearby, they often sell out. Good for them.

If there is another opportunity, The Mouse will be back. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

From the Farmer

Picked up at the market.

Fern

Pahole, warabi, or a variation of fiddlehead fern. Add tomato, onion, and a simple vinaigrette = salad. 🙂

The Mouse and The Cat’s potluck contribution tonight.

Also picked up Okinawan sweet potato (no picture). Also bringing to the table tonight (steamed).

And last but not least, couldn’t resist.

Poi with Taro Chunks

Had very high expectations for this. The Mouse likes taro and poi. Unfortunately, the contrast in textures was a little too much for The Mouse. One or the other is more enjoyable (jus’ my opinion). Oh well, try try.

Happy Friday y’all.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Poi and …

Aside from the obvious poi and lau lau, poi and kalua pork, poi and lomi salmon, poi and stew, may I suggest on of my favorite combinations?

Poi and scrambled eggs.

Scrambled Eggs and Fresh Poi

And then to “kick it up a notch”.

Scrambled Eggs and Fermented Poi

Scrambled Eggs and Fermented Poi

How did this combo come to be you may ask? I dunno, maybe one of those days I was too lazy to cook breakfast. Leftover scrambled eggs and poi in the refrig … why not?

Itʻs probably an acquired taste. Go try, maybe you like too. 🙂

Whatʻs your favorite food combinations?

Enjoy. Eat well.

Poi!

Sunday farmers market.

Fresh

Fresh

Vendor said “momona” means “sweet”, always thought it meant “large” (in the nicest possible way). Hee hee. Might tell you a underwear changing story in the future.

Actually was looking for sour poi, but vendor didn’t have it on Sunday. The fresh is good but the sour is better.

Had to pick up prescription today, ran over to the farmers market just on the chance that vendor might have sour poi. He did.

Just got through having a little bit for dinner.

Notice the color difference?

Full of probiotics, yumm. definitely an acquired taste, but I also like natto and stink tofu.

Enjoy. Eat well.

More Poi

Yesterday, it was all about poi, for The Mouse anyway.

Campus cafe(teria) in hibernation, and now the drive in across the street took off for the holidays. Food pickings getting sparse, temporarily. A short hike to the nearest grocery store.

Poke and Poi Lunch

OMG! The poi was so fresh, it was sweet! Score! The poke was good too!

All Gone!

All Gone!

My only “complaint”, and it’s a minor one, the poi bowl had ridges on the bottom, hard to scoop all the poi out (I did think about licking, but … ).

Dinner, The Mouse finished the last of the sour poi with a tin of sardines.

Mmm!

Mmm!

You can kinda see the poi in the background.

The Cat also had a pretty good food day.
