As mentioned in the previous post, lunch yesterday was at whats becoming our regular Sunday spot (New Panda Cuisine, 641 Keeaumoku Street, Honolulu, Hawaii). No excitement of pork intestines this week (see here if your morbidly curious). No trauma, no drama. You may think we wouldn’t go back after last week, my only explanation is sh*t happens (both figuratively and literally). Heh heh. 🙂 The Cat still wants to work her way through as many of the seventy-two (or seventy-one, if you don’t count pork tongue) lunch selections as she can.

Lunch this week. As always, it started with free soup of the day.

Soup of the Day

Pork bones and dried white stemmed cabbage soup. Instead of givings us two cups of soup, we were given a large, family bowl of soup.

Oftentimes, when soup is served in Chinese restaurants, or even at home, all of the ingredients (bones, twigs, roots and other non-edible stuff) is served too. Not sure what the significance is, maybe to show the authenticity of the soup. I dunno.

Soup Bones

Sorry, the picture is a little fuzzy, steam was still rising from the soup. The big yellow thing at the bottom right of the picture is a huge chunk of ginger root.

No pork tongue available again (big boo!), and we didn’t order any intestines (see last week’s post), whew! So no trauma or drama this week.

The Cat saw something interesting on another table and sent The Mouse to investigate, turns out it was seafood chow mein (fried noodles). Instead of chow mein, The Cat choose chow fun instead.

Seafood Chow Fun

For the vegetable, sliced lotus root with bean curd sauce.

Sliced Lotus Root with Bean Curd Sauce

The bean curd sauce is another Chinese fermented ingredient. This was actually very good. The socks started to come off.

Pan Fried Oyster Cake Chiu Chow Style

Turned out to be like a flat oyster omelet. Socks came off for this one.

So very little trauma with this meal, sometimes no stress is good. 🙂 Wow! no pork on this meal.

Enjoy. Eat well.
