Yes, these were our dinner.  Love all of them.  Tuesday night not crowded at all.  We were seated within 5mins as soon as we step in.  Wash it down with green tea and sake.  What a lovely night.

Pop Up Lunch – Hawaiian theme

The meal is absolutely breath taking.  The Shoyu Ahi Poke and taro chips really good.  The slight taste of toast sesame oil on the fresh ahi and taro chip ah I am in heaven.  The Agedashi tofu just OK for me.  I personally think the chef picked the wrong kind of tofu.  It should be skill skin instead of taught one.  Understood it is easy for chef to work on but the texture is different.  I prefer my tofu smooth.

The salad plating was beautiful but I don’t particularly like it.  Watermelon radish was hard to eat.  Though I love dragon fruit.  Love that star fruits too.  Has been a while I didn’t eat it.  YES!  that main course was so good ‘Shoyu braised Pork Belly Bowl with Ume Honey Glaze’ hmmm hmmm good.  Just melt in my mouth not fatty at all.  Love the after taste of shoyu.  The dessert a little complicated.  It’s call Aloha Momona.  On the plate it has open faced soursop tart with brulee’d Ube and butter mochi drizzled with hibiscus carmel.  Garnished with dehydrated pineapple flowers and pineapple cake crumbs.  I ate all the butter mochi.

Southwestern food – Mesa Grill

Yes, this is my kind of food.  Everything on the menu are so delicious.

Sticky Toffee Pudding.pngRibeye 22oz  Seared Seascallop

A very first time in Mesa Grill.  The shrimp tamale and tuna nachos were so good.  My love had 22oz of rib-eyes and I got the seared sea-scallops.   The sticky pudding was great as well.

What a treat.  Lovely food and companion and way to wrap up a tired and exhausted week.

This is my first time tasted the Deviled duck eggs.  A little sour though but it was delicious.   The watermelon Basil Gazpacho with Feta cream was excellent.  The rabbit ragu was tender and cooked it just right.  Very juicy with slight white wine, rosemary, thyme and savory Gnocchi.  Yes, the truffle oil mushroom lasagna was so rich though.  I can’t finish all it has spinach, pine nuts, oyster mushroom, truffle oil and heavy cream and Parmesan cheese.  End up with delicious white chocolate vanilla bean lollipop cheesecake with chocolate caramel & strawberry Chantilly cream.  Really enjoy every bite of this fancy meal.

Kinder Happy Hippo

Yes, this Happy Hippo makes me very happy.  My peer came back from Germany and brought this.  I just took three bites to finish it and enjoy every bite of it.   This snack is to die for.  It shape like hippo and it was a wafer biscuit and inside content of either milk chocolate or hazelnut spread.   The crunchiness of the wafer with creamy chocolate spread.  Who doesn’t like.   Though it might be a little expensive for us to buy here.  I purchased from Amazon 3boxes for $12 :(( but when you crave for it and want it so bad so you will have to a little high price to get it.

Thank you Emily K for introduce me on his Happy Hippo.

Lobster rolls

Yes, each time our com2016-04-06 19.05.00pany have the Hackaton session and they will be the gourmet food truck to treat us after the long day.  Lobster roll, pizza, donuts, beers and more.  For me I will go for lobster and clam chowder for sure.  There are so good.  Even our cafe is open as usual but I can’t skip the lobster roll just not strong enough to do so.
