Last Sunday, The Cat and The Mouse decided to try something different from Ruby Tuesday. “Newish” Thai in the neighborhood. Kits n Koa.

Pad Thai Noodle

Not bad, The Cat thinks she’s had better.

Chicken Panang Curry

This one was good. A keeper. Not spicy, flavorful.

Bamboo Shoots with Eggs

Not bad for tinned bamboo shoots.

This is where The Mouse really liked the pickled yellow pepper.

Pickled Yellow Peppers

Especially on the noodle.

Tapioca Coconut Milk

With young coconut, The Cat’s dessert.

Steamed Pumpkin Coconut Cream with Sticky Rice

The Mouse’s dessert. The Mouse liked. Super heavy though. Nap time. 🙂

Kits n Koa made it to the list of restaurants can return to.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Cat’s and The Mouse’s semi-regular Sunday visit to Ruby Tuesday in the mall.

This month restaurant is running a special on half rack of baby back rib. The Cat ordered. Usually comes with two sides but The Cat optioned the salad bar as one of her sides and a baked potato for the other.

Ribs and Potato

Kinda reminded The Mouse of Manago Restaurant on Hawai‘i. Hee hee.

The Mouse ordered his regular three sides and salad bar. The Mouse also choose a baked potato as one of his sides. Instead of sour cream, chives, and butter, The Mouse “raided” the salad bar.

Baked Potato, The Mouse Style

Mushroom, ham, bacon, and croutons (freshly made, still warm). The Mouse still eating weird. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Left work a little early yesterday. Since I was waiting for a prescription to be filled, browsed the farmers market.

Tomato Relish

Have to look a bread worthy of this jar. Hee hee.


From The Rice Factory. Shiso leaf wrapped and organic miso.

Zatoichi would be over the moon. The Mouse was.

Pre-cut Vegetables for Pinakbet

Veggies went into The Cat’s pork and mushroom gravy bowl.

Pork and Veggie Bowl

Over the hump, it’s all downhill from here. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Frozen veggies.


The medley.

Potato, Beans, Red Bell Pepper

Brussels Sprouts

Packaged hummus.

With Roasted Pine Nuts

The vehicle to move the hummus from bowl to The Mouse’s mouth.


The tomato and olive oil taste complimented the hummus perfectly. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

As mentioned previously, Christmas Eve dinner at Herringbone. The Cat, The Mouse, and a couple of friends and associates (orphans in a storm). 🙂

California Avocado Toast

Romanesco, crispy parmesan, tomato confit, Fresno chili.

Not bad, The Cat preferred the avocado toast from Il Lupino.

Yellowtail (Hamachi) Crudo

Truffle yuzu (what’s that!?), crispy garlic, green onion.

Not bad, more than “meh”, The Mouse thinks The Cat would’ve probably preferred an izakaya or sushi bar preparation.

The Cat’s order:

Local Snapper

Farmer market vegetables, citrus miso glaze. Again not bad, The Cat thought the fish was just ever so slightly overcooked. And you know with white-fleshed fish, once you pass that line, it’s all downhill from there.

The Mouse’s order:

Miso Mushroom “Carbonara”

Udon, snap peas, farm egg, chilis.

The Mouse didn’t mind his order, with the caveat that there’s probably a similar dish at a ramen joint at sixty-percent less. Maybe the mushrooms raised the price. Sigh.

Bok Choy and Mushrooms

Crispy taro, island vinaigrette.

The crispy taro was good, except The Mouse didn’t rescue it from the broth fast enough, edges got soggy. More long beans than bok choi. The vinaigrette gave the dish a sorta southern collared greens vibe. The Mouse is still deciding if that was a good thing.

Overall dinner to paraphrase Maxwell Smart/Don Adams …

Would The Cat and The Mouse return? Yes, with the caveat for happy hour only.

Mele Kalikimaka to those so inclined. Have a great day to all!

Enjoy. Eat well.
