“Coming Soon” sign has been hanging for months. Tiny little strip mall. Used to be a little snack shop. The Mouse thought it would be a little sushi take-out joint.

Finally, the open sign goes up. The Cat’s on a trip for a friend’s wedding. The Mouse wanted something light and cool. On a whim, pulled in to check it out.


Turns out to be a full-on sushi bar. Since The Mouse was already there … Hee hee.


The Mouse wasn’t feeling full-on sushi bar mode, maybe next time (spoiler alert, there will definitely be a next time). 🙂

The Mouse got his salad.

Rainbow Salad

Slices of hamachi, ahi, sake, ebi. Nom!

And, in true Mouse fashion, has to order sushi bar egg omelet (at least for the first time).


This one, not bad, a little sweeter than expected, but firm and moist. The Mouse was happy.

And, for now, 15% off orders!

May be back soon! Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Cat and The Mouse kinda went lounge hopping for Easter “dinner”.

100 Sails running a half off happy hour special through April. Being pake, gotta take advantage. Hee hee.

Mushroom Flat Bread

The Cat thought okay, no socks off.

Korean Fried Cauliflower

KFC, hee hee. The Cat and The Mouse liked. One half to one sock off.

Cauliflower Close Up


Hummus with Taro Chips

This dish was more “meh”. Either not enough seasoning, or not enough olive oil. Chips were good though.

Uni Pasta Carbonara

This dish was the winner. Squid ink pasta, uni, ikura, shiso leaves. Two socks off. More please. 🙂

Next, headed over to Herringbone (Oyster Hour) for one of The Cat’s favorite vegetable dishes.

Brussels Sprouts and Candied Pecans

So good, The Cat ordered two, one for her bento this week.

And since it is “oyster hour” …


The Cat also wanted to try the restaurant’s signature Buffalo Octopus.

Buffalo Octopus

Slow braised then grilled octopus, spicy sauce, black-eyed peas, ranch dressing. The Cat was more impressed than The Mouse. For The Mouse, flavors didn’t quite mesh together. But, try try.

Dindin ended with a trio of sorbet.


Dragonfruit (only for Easter), coconut, and lilikoi.

Not traditional Easter, but then, why not. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Fuzzy Pictures

Jus’ pics. Food not made by The Mouse.

Hand Roll Sushi

The Mouse thinks brown rice, tuna, and some other ingredients The Mouse couldn’t identify. Korean roasted seaweed instead of Japanese sheets. Nom.

Cabbage Soup

With Chinese long squash and hearts of palm. All vegetarian, good, but missing a bit of fat/oil. Maybe a slice of bacon or two? Hee hee.

That’s it for now, a little sparse on content, sorry, life got in the way.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Cuzs Eat

The Mouse was completely distracted yesterday. Nothing of significance eating-wise. Luckily the cuzs went on a food exploration/adventure and texted me their lunch pictures.

Sushi Maruyama

New-ish, Chef owned. Quite a good bit of buzz.

Hamachi Nigiri

To quote the cuzs: “The best we’ve had.”

Notice how the fish drapes over the rice? Hardly can see the rice. Vicarious yum. Sigh.

Agedashi Tofu


Grilled Ume Musubi

Their final assessment? New favorite sushi bar.

Now, The Mouse and The Cat gotta try.

Enjoy. Eat well.

“New Year’s Eve”

On campus anyway. Yesterday was closing of the fiscal year. Not much celebrating, everyone scrambling to “close the books”. Big boss brought in “a little thank you”.



Garlic Chicken

Someone else (dunno who) brought in scones from Diamond Head Market and Grill.

Signature Cream Cheese Filled Blueberry Scones

This is what happens when you come 5 minutes later. Trust me, the box was full. Hee hee.

Kinda noshed throughout the day, what with rushing around to finish closing and a mishap in Waikiki, no proper lunch. That’s okay, dinner more than made up. (Next post).

“Happy New Year!”

Enjoy. Eat well.
