Near her “new” office.

Front

An Irish pub.

Sunday dinner.

The Cat’s Plate

Grilled salmon with sweet chili sauce. The Cat liked.

The Mouse went with something more “Sunday traditional”.

The Mouse’s Plate

Pot roast with vegetables and mash potatoes. Nom!

For dessert.

Apple Crisp Ala Mode

Very yum!

Starting today, the week’s specials include Eggplant Parmigiana. We might be back for New Year’s Eve dinner. Stay tuned.

The Mouse and The Cat wishing you and yours a happy, healthy, and hopeful new year! Stay safe!

Enjoy. Eat well.

Breaking from the Sunday routine. Eating after farmers market.

http://www.theolena.com/

Not typical golf course menu.

The Cat’s Order

Herb grilled salmon – Sautéed vegetables, rice, topped with ginger-pesto. Nicely grilled, moist.

The Mouse’s Order

Lechon Kawali – Crispy fried Locally raised pork belly, citrus soy, Maui onions, Ho farm tomatoes, served with rice & tossed greens.

Nom!

Crispy pork, seasoning not too vinegar-y. Repeat worthy. Four paws.

The Mouse now has two places on the windward side to get his pork belly fix. Mama’s Kitchen and here.

No Mudd pie here, but …

Gelato and Sorbet

Green tea, acai, strawberry guava. Big scoops.

Be back soon. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

A while back, The Cat was named an executor of one of her client’s estates. He was an ex-pat living abroad (that used to live here). Yesterday, a group of his friends brought a part of his ashes back to SPAM land for his send-off (a portion stayed in Australia).

Since The Cat didn’t really know the client on a personal level, The Cat was a little perplexed about the memorial dinner.

By serendipitous coincidence, The Cat made reservations at Michel’s at the Colony Surf. Turns out the client, R, loved France and French food.

The Place

Near one of R’s favorites spots, Diamond Head.

Since the group was relatively large (fifteen), individual ordering could be prohibitive and cumbersome, went with chef’s choice for the table.

Amuse Bouche

Ahi tartare, shiso leaf, caviar. Nom! The Mouse’s only “complaint” (and totally not in the spirit of an “amuse bouche”), The Mouse wanted more. Sigh. Hee hee.

Lobster Bisque

Menu description: Served for over 40 years at Michel’s with fresh Maine lobster meat flamed in Cognac at your table.

The Requisite “Flamed”

 

Caesar Salad

Menu description: Hirabara baby romaine & hearts of palm, tossed tableside in our classic creamy dressing, anchovy filets served upon request.

The picture is prior to The Mouse’s request of more anchovies. Server was kind enough to “load up” The Mouse’s plate. Dragons breathe fire, The Mouse breathes anchovy breath. Hee hee. Haaaaah!

Fish Course

Salmon, tomato coulis, tomato confit, asparagus, angel hair pasta. Well prepared.

Palate Refresher

Kalamansi sorbetto with blueberry. Happy.

Meat Course

Venison, mashed potato, mushroom risotto, foie gras. I think the sauce had blueberries in it. Socks off nom.

So, everyone else’s plate was a stacked presentation, The Mouse’s looked a little deconstructed. But, The Mouse had the biggest foie gras piece. What does the soccer announcer say? SCOOOOOOOOOOOOORE! 🙂

Dessert

Chef H procured fresh peaches and made Peach Melba. Peaches, vanilla ice cream, raspberries, whipped cream, amaretto. A nice ending to an awesome dinner. Chef even gave us the leftover peaches to take home.

Thanks Chef H, we will be back.

All R’s Australian friends felt the dinner was a perfect send-off.

The Mouse was fully satisfied and satiated.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Leftovers

When The Mouse was younger, leftovers was not in the vocabulary nor a concept. Now that The Mouse is older (not necessarily wiser), leftovers are not only a practice, but a happy concept. Benefits include not having to prep and cook as often, and helps to keep the clothes from shrinking. Hee hee. Don’t get me wrong, I love prepping and cooking, just that right now there are a few personal structural issues that need to be addressed before The Mouse can go “full speed” in the kitchen.

Pizza

The Cat brought home, office lunch. The Mouse nibbled throughout the day.

Baked Potato

And

Salmon

Another lunch. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

“Poke” Another Way

Over the weekend, tried something “new-ish” at the mall.

Storefront

Poke, made-to-order. Uhm okay, try try.

Pick a base, a protein, a sauce, and various accouterments to your taste.

I went with a small salad, salmon, wasabi, tobiko roe, furikake, and avocado.

The Mouse’s “Box”

On the plus side, everything is “fresh”. On the down side, everything is “fresh”. The flavors did not get a chance to combine and meld.

Sorry, I think I prefer the fresh made daily, pre-mixed poke style, but to each their own. Try try.

Enjoy. Eat well.
