New Filipino restaurant in the neighborhood.


Their philosophy, food from mom’s or aunty’s kitchen. The Mouse arrived too late for pinkabet, sold out. sigh.


Not bad, like home cooking.

A special of the day. Yum!

Gotta to go back for the pinkabet! Hee hee.

Whip It!

For the past couple of weeks, lunch at work has included a package of natto. Usually, natto eating at home is unspokenly forbidden by The Cat. However, since The is meeting a tax deadline this week …

At work, kitchen conditions are not the most favorable in preparing natto. Still edible, just not optimal. At home, The Mouse is able to really froth up the natto.


The Mouse gets to use the “natto fork”.

Natto Fork

Devo’s “Whip It”, the perfect soundtrack for preparing natto. Hee hee.

Does the natto fork work any better than chopsticks or a regular fork? Probably not, but still pretty cool. πŸ™‚

Normally, The Mouse uses the included yellow mustard packet.

Mustard Packet

But, tried whole ground mustard this time. used shiso leaves as “wrap” for the natto.

The Mouse’s Dinner

Nom! πŸ™‚

The Mouse’s Weird Mind

Driving home after work.

Double Rainbow

Mind started playing ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’, the Judy Garland version, not the Iz version. Hee hee.

Don’t get me wrong, The Mouse loves the Iz version, just it wasn’t playing in my head at the moment.

Picked up on the way.


Ume and wakame, edamame and seaweed. Thoughts wander over to Zatoichi.

Zatoichi and Judy Garland soundtrack. Told ya weird. πŸ™‚

Enjoy. Eat well.

Halloween Yet?

No, not props for the next horror flick.

Chicken Feet

The Cat’s dinner accessory for her cup noodles. She’s trying to meet a tax deadline. Late nights.

Braised Chicken Feet

Water, whiskey, ginger, sea salt. The Mouse made vegetable soup out of the broth. The Cat slurped.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Cat used to frequent when she worked in downtown, over ten years ago, now that she moved back …

Stuffed Eggplant

The Mouse’s lunch.

Time between the rheumatologist appointment and chiropractor.

A “spur of the moment” turn through Chinatown and an open parking space in front. Kismet? Hee hee.

Place has been in business for years.
