Lazy Saturday

The Cat, finishing up tax returns to meet deadline. The Mouse, kinda lazy.


Boiled frozen soybeans, wakame seaweed, toasted sesame oil, Kaua‘i sea salt.

Grocery shopping at the nearby grocery store (for pork foot).

Steak Plate

Steak for The Mouse, rice and corn for The Cat’s bento for Monday. Rice, barley, corn, turnip greens, and roast pork (also bought from the grocery store).

Heading out to the farmers market and “brunch”.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Farmers Market

New vendor.

Rice Factory

Import rice from Japan, mill rice in SPAM Land. Fresh.


Cooked up a portion for The Cat’s bento.


There was even enough for The Cat’s “teishoku” that night.

The Cat’s “Teishoku”

Mostly leftovers with the fresh rice. The Cat said rice taste better. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Rice Bowls

What The Mouse ate yesterday.

First, Mouse made. “Brunch”.


Trader Joe’s rice blend, soy beans, smoked pork from Pipikaula and Pickles, wasabi sesame seeds.

The Cat yum cha-ed (is that a word?) at Jade Dynasty. The Cat texted The Mouse that she was bringing home a pork belly rice bowl.

What The Cat Saw

Warning: “objects in restaurants are smaller than they appear”. To paraphrase. Hee hee.

The Actual Take-Out

There was also leftover tofu and cucumber from The Cat’s lunch. While a bit on the light side, three pieces of pork belly, about one scoop of rice, just enough for a light dinner. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Egg McMuffin from Micky D

Shiso from our bucket. The Mouse thinks all (okay, most) sandwiches should come with a shiso option. Hee hee.

Ready to Nom

Ran an errand to Michael Mina’s “food court” concept at International Marketplace at Waikiki (same complex as Yauatcha), The Street. Chef Mina carries Chef’s chocolates (at “The Chocolate Bar”, cute ya?) and The Mouse wanted to check it out.


Impressive. What an opportunity for the Chef.


Like jewelry. Hee hee.


Dark chocolate “lava rocks” (mac nut “bon bons”). Simply boxed and ribboned. The Cat and The Mouse likes the presentation even though they are still trying to work out some of the kinks.

Gift Bag

Again, very subtle.

Fun fact, The Mouse was their first customer … ever! 🙂

On the way back, drive-thru, Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen, ran out of chicken sandwich (What!??) Ordered a fish sandwich.

Fish Sandwich

Not bad, pretty good actually, especially if compared with Micky D “Filet-o-Fish”. At least Popeye’s has a bit of green. Sure wish I had the foresight to bring more shiso.

Of course, can’t go to Popeye’s without a side order of red beans and rice.

Red Beans and Rice

Now, The Mouse has never experienced “authentic” red beans and rice, but for what it is (fast food), The Mouse likes Popeye’s.

Funny, The Cat also went (separately) to The Street to check it out, missed each other by an hour.




With decent parking at somewhat reasonable prices (with minimum purchase), seems like The Cat and The Mouse will be doing more exploring of the new International Marketplace, even though it’s in Waikiki.

Last snippet.

Breakfast yesterday.

Zippy’s Breakfast Bento #1

Corned beef hash, SPAM, scrambled eggs, rice. Should’ve ordered brown rice, too early, couldn’t think, before coffee. Corned beef nicely “charred” with kogi bits. Ate the rice and corned beef hash, saved the SPAM and eggs for lunch.

SPAM and Egg Sandwich

Two slices of whole wheat bread at the office, slightly toasted, SPAM, eggs, packet mayo. Not bad for unscheduled, impromptu sandwich. Missing that shiso again.

As mentioned in the previous almost not posted post (clearly operator error), gonna be a late one tonight.

Enjoy. Eat well.
