Mosaic

Sunday take-out lunch, town still on lockdown. Back to Sakura Terrace. Quality food, decent and fair price.

Bara Chirashi

Sushi rice, bits and pieces of ingredients. Big nom! The Cat and The Mouse liked. 🙂

Almost looks like it could be abstract art. Hee hee.

Hamachi Sashimi

Nommed with shiso leaves.

Stay safe and well.

Fish Friday

One of the managers at The Mouse’s workplace decided to treat lunch. One of the owner’s other companies he owns, a poke shop.

Poke and Sashimi on Greens

Wasabi Masago poke, salmon, hamachi, and ahi sashimi. This was a small portion. The Mouse was afraid if he ordered the regular, he would be sleepy after. 🙂

Nom!

The Mouse is not looking a gift horse in the mouth, but just wondering if the manager got an “employee discount”. Hee hee.

Stay safe.

Last week’s dinner, epic for The Cat.

Started with a text to Chef H, our menu choices: Caesar Salad, lobster bisque, crab cake, Vitello Tonnato (to try), lobster risotto, and souffle for dessert.

Chef responded “Looking at the menu … I say leave it to Chef.”

Ok, sigh, he has never steered us wrong.

To The Cat, from Chef

The Cat’s cocktail.

Watermelon Martini

Chef’s tasting menu: Lobster Bisque, lobster in cognac, flamed at table (The Mouse didn’t take a pic).

Caesar Salad

Extra anchovies on the side for The Mouse. Nom!

Crab Cake

Black bean sauce, tomato coulis, tropical fruit garnish.

Vitello Tonnato

Yellowfin Ahi sashimi, oven-roasted veal, white tuna sauce, pesto and caper vinaigrette. The Mouse wanted to try based on the menu description. Try try. The Mouse thinks, could’ve used a shoyu wasabi (or Coleman mustard) dipping sauce, but don’t tell Chef. Jus’ The Mouse’s Asian palate.

Yuzu Sorbet

Palate cleanser. The Mouse could eat a bucket of this.

Wagyu Rib Eye, Morel Mushrooms, White Asparagus, Lobster Risotto

Chef (restaurant) flew the white asparagus in from Holland. Jet lag. Hee hee.

Grand Marnier Souffle

Fireworks

Orange Peel Fire Fountain

The Mouse always loves this part.

Banana Foster

Chef loves presenting this dessert. Locally grown apple bananas.

See? Told ya epic. If you notice, all of the items listed/requested were on the menu and more. So publicly, it’s Chef’s choice menu, but The Mouse privately had some input. 😉

Enjoy. Eat well.

Thought to start the new year with some new adventure.

A couple of weeks ago, bought a Global paring knife (a Williams-Sonoma exclusive) as a “travel” knife (part of The Mouse’s knife roll). Received it dull as can be, the dependable Spyderco sharpening system had nada effect. Thought it was going to end up as an expensive butter knife.

As last resort contacted Grey Wolf at Cutting Edge Sharpening. Extremely professional and skilled. I have a functional paring knife. Big smile.

Checked out Chef Zone.

Sign

Sign

Kinda like a Costco for the restaurant industry, currently open to the public. Half the warehouse is like a regular warehouse full of industrial sized food items and restaurant supplies, the other half is the chill room. As a courtesy to customers, store lends insulated coats for the chill room.

Cute yeah?

The journey was mostly to look around, a little “reconnaissance” for the new year, jus’ being niele. Hee hee.

The Mouse's Provisions

The Mouse’s Provisions

Not too much, just some everyday groceries. Ketchup (no high fructose corn syrup), wakame seaweed, loaf of bread, lemons, mandarin oranges (fresh, not tinned), and blueberries. Not sure we can return too often (the volume is a little bigger than our needs), but, sometimes, just for fun. 🙂

Checked out a Chinese restaurant reviewed by the local newspaper, nearby Chef Zone, airport area.

On the premises of a motel. Go figure.

Interior

Kinda like entering a time warp in the nineteen-sixties. Weird (in a good way).

Menu is very American-Chinese, American-Chinese food, local selections, burgers and fries. Something for almost everyone.

The Mouse ordered …

Char Siu and Roast Pork on Rice

Char Siu and Roast Pork on Rice

Mmm! Roast pork skin like thin shattered glass, so crispy. Char Siu wasn’t bad either. A little choi sum included to round out the plate.

And since the menu was “American-Chinese”,

Hamburger Deluxe

Hamburger Deluxe

In celebration of the year of the rooster. No relevance at all but … hee hee!

Also in the area, tried finding a stationery store, missed. Ended up at the old 99 Ranch Market location.  Two pleasant “finds”.

Hamachi Sashimi

Hamachi Sashimi

Since we were eating Friday night’s leftovers, picked up a tray for The Cat to commemorate the new year. And…

Flamingo Express

Flamingo Express

I’ve written nostalgically about the “demise” of the local “diner” including Flamingo Restaurant. Apparently they are still hanging on. Maybe another trip here is warranted to check them out.

So, that was The Mouse’s new year day adventure. How did you spend the first day of the lunar new year.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Seafood!

Or is it seefood. Could be both? Hee hee.

Location

Funny, two high end resorts have “casual” dining spots named “Plumeria”, go figure. Last night we were at the “Plumeria” at the Kahala Resort.

Food!

Food!

Salads, poke, sashimi, butterfish (braised with sun-dried tomato), Mac-nut crusted shutome, carving station, etc. Drool!

The Mouse's First Pass

More Sashimi, Herb-Crusted Roast Beef

More Sashimi, Herb-Crusted Roast Beef

And finally …

Sweets!

Pineapple chunks, chocolate mousse, mango pudding, brownie, and I forgot the last thing.

A good noms day.

I’ll get (and post) The Cat’s pictures later.

Enjoy. Eat well.
