Comfort Food

The Mouse (and The Cat) is (are) back. Short trip to Hilo, semi-business for The Cat, The Mouse went along kinda as driver. Pics and stories coming. In the meantime, last night dinner. Schedule still out of whack, jet lag and all. Hee hee.

Max’s of Manila, near The Mouse’s workplace.

Dishes that meet The Cat’s food preferences.


Vegetables? Check. Soupy? Check.

A little too much shrimp paste for The Mouse’s taste, good with rice though.

Papaya Chicken Soup

Again, soupy? Check. Vegetables? Check.

Well cooked. Chicken was not “dried out” from overcooking, papaya was soft, but not falling apart.

Really though, the main reason for coming here was for the ube ice cream (The Cat was jonesing for).

Enjoy. Eat well.
