I usually read my National Geographic Magazines during the day because I like to study the beautiful photos with good light. Unfortunately, I'm behind . . . like October 2013 behind. So last night, I decided that I'd better go through my pile. I used a flashlight to help me see better. When my light shone on this page, I cracked up.
This is on sale at Costco right now. This two-pack is only $6.99 (It's $2.50 off the regular price of $9.49). Wendell bought it because he said that the sample he tasted was good.
You can either bake it like we did or microwave it.
Here's the filling. It was very tasty . . . mildly spicy.
Landon made this rice dish to go with it. There's no recipe. He just threw together some rice, olives, tomatoes, cheese, kidney beans, taco seasoning and adobo seasoning. He put it in the oven for a little while with the empanadas.
Menchanko-Tei is just a hop, skip and a jump away from Keeaumoku Super Market. We actually went there for the ramen but it was the tonkatsu that stole the show. I think it's as good as or even better than Tonki Tonkatsu Restaurant in Tokyo. For real. We ordered an ala carte half order. We just wanted to try. They have three grades Loin, Tenderloin and Premium. We wanted to try the Premium but it didn't come in a half-order size so we got the Tenderloin instead. Not to downplay everything else that we got . . . 'cause everything was good, but like I said . . . da tonkatsu was da big winnah.
Here's our half order of Tenderloin Tonkatsu. It was juicy and tender on the inside with just the right amount of crispness on the outside.
Somehow I usually don't care for the taste of tonkatsu sauce, but this one with the just-ground sesame seeds was perfect to me.
This is what I ordered.
It was gooooood.
Oh, and can I add that I ate only one of the fried oysters and I shared the rest . . . just in case your eyebrows wen raise. *ahem*
I did eat all of the ramen but.
Sweetie ordered the Nanban Don and Mini Ramen set.
The chicken was really, really yummy.
Geri got the Zabu-Zabu Cold Ramen.
She couldn't finish all of her noodles. And we couldn't help her either.
Unfortunately, I neva take a picture of the Tonkatsu menu. I got this menu from Yelp, so I don't know how current the prices are.
Me and my sisters went to Keeaumoku Super Market on Memorial Day. I took my camera with me and did the "shoot from the hip", sneaky-kine picture taking like how I did five years ago in Safeway. You can see the Safeway photos here if you like. While we were there this sign got removed. Geri was charged 59 cents/pound for her cucumbers.
I looooove dukbokki, a Korean rice cake dish made with these.
I wondered about making tofu with the Black Sesame Soymilk. But . . . naaaaahhh . . . I didn't wanna waste $6.00.
They have choke ajitsuke-kine nori.
Zoweeee!! Imagine using that much pepper powder.
Need I say it? I will. "Ewwwwwwww."
Kalbi - $8.50/pound.
Geri bought this. It was expensive. I think $8.99. And there were only 12 packs in the package.
I wonder if the Anchovy Sauce is similar to patis.
I'm thinking of going back and buying this. It kinda looked like Hawaiian salt. And $1.99 is cheap, right?
This was $6.99. Kinda intriguing, yah? It was a really fine powder.
I didn't notice it until just now . . . Ume Jelly!
