Last day of the long weekend. This time The Mouse participated.
First time for The Cat. The Mouse has been coming here for years (mostly when The Cat works late).
Not gourmet, but better than some places that charge three to four times as much.
Chinese sausage omelet over fried rice.
Then a trip to the outlet mall. Almost everything was on sale. Scored a few items, The Cat more than The Mouse.
When they were closer to town, we used to frequent them (in the bowling alley). The bowling alley is gone (replaced by a chain pharmacy). (Joni Mitchell is playing in the background.) They moved to the Waimalu area, and it was harder to get to. But since we were in the area, sorta, a good opportunity. :)
One of their “condiments” is freshly grated ginger.
To compliment the soup. Me, I put it on almost everything (with a drop of soy sauce … mmm).
Now, after all that, we didn’t order their famous soup (kinda).
The Mouse kinda had their oxtail soup.
Had to. :)
Kinda like beef chop suey, just not in a Chinese chop suey house. Fresh ginger on rice with dash of shoyu, mmm.
The Cat equates the stir-fry sauce to XO sauce. Probably not so high-end, but it is tasty.
The two meals together? Four dishes? Including tax and tip? Less than 35 bucks! Cheap eats!
That ends the short “staycation”. Back to work tomorrow. Sigh.
Oh yeah, remind me to write about my father and oxtail soup. Soon.
Enjoy. Eat well.
