Unplugged, Part II

100 years young!


Started in 1917

Part of Manago Hotel, Captain Cook, Hawai鈥榠.


Notice the basin next to the door? Make sure to wash hand before eating. Hee hee.


Possibly food selection has not changed, just the prices. Still reasonable though.


Family style.

Rice and tea

Teapot? Super old school.


Genmaicha. Yum!

The Cat’s Opakapaka

100 years? Plating is for foufou eaters. Hee hee.

CB’s NewYork Steak

He liked.

The Mouse’s Miso Butterfish

All the dishes, nothing fancy, just fresh, honest food, cooked well. The kicker? The Cat would return. 馃檪


Enjoy. Eat well.

Shoyu Pork

This week’s one-pot. Actually this week there were two-pots.

First, shoyu pork.

Pork Belly, Par Boiled, Washed

Pork, dark soy, ginger, Crown Royal Apple, water, salt, brown sugar, star anise.

Into the Pot

The Cat threw in green onions from our outside pots.

The Mouse threw together something to accompany the pork.


Wood-ear fungus, dried shiitake mushrooms, dark soy, sugar, salt.

Dark Matter

Good thing The Cat took white rice in her bento for contrast. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Saw this place on former co-worker’s Facebook:


For geezers like The Mouse and The Cat, used to be the old Yum Yum Tree location.

Lunches are “not sit down service”. Order at the counter, pick-up at the kitchen window, find your own table, take-out boxes and plastic utensils. Dinner (I’m told) is sit down service.

The Cat ordered off of the daily special menu.

“Game Day” Special

First time (except for tempura) The Cat orders a plate with deep fried food (she saw soft shell crab). 馃檪

Shrimp, fish, calamari?, along with the soft shell crab (two!), rice and salad. The Cat liked.

The Mouse ordered:

Portobello Mushroom and Vegetable “Burger”

On taro bun with fries. Well made.

Restaurant also has a poke counter.


Cute ya?

Mussel Poke with Sesame Seed Topping

Jus’ to try. Not bad. 馃檪

The Cat approved a revisit in the future, maybe for dinner? Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Cat came home with a package of fresh okra. The Cat is not so fond of okra, but The Mouse is. Although, The Mouse is more used to working with the frozen variety.

Decided to combine the okra with a week end semi clean out of the refridge.

In the Sink

Okra, celery, tomato.

Sliced all somewhat thin (the okra seeds kept falling out). Into a pan with a bit of smoked pork (also thinly sliced), and water (the okra started to stick to the pot).

Okra Rago没t with Celery, Tomato, Smoked Pork

Not really rago没t, kinda a hybrid saut茅, braise,聽rago没t method. Worked for The Mouse. 馃檪

Enjoy. Eat well.
