The Mouse drove The Cat to work again, her car still being repaired. On the way back, The Mouse picked up bao buns in Chinatown.

Char Siu, Vegetable, and Sweet Potato, Pork Hash and Half Moons

The Mouse shared the vegetable and sweet potato bao buns with The Cat, ate the rest. 🙂 Nom!

Also picked up dessert.

Steamed Rice Cake

And, a little something for The Cat’s lunch.

A good eating day!

From the previous post, The Mouse saw pics of beef stew with tendon (Chinese style) from a hole in the wall Chinese chop suey house near the warehouse where The Mouse works. Parking is an issue, especially during weekday commuting hours (tow away zone).

The Mouse specifically drove to town to try yesterday.

Beef Stew with Tendon on Rice

Not bad, quantity was huge, two meals, dinner for The Mouse, bento for The Cat, very tender. The Mouse didn’t get to try the tendon went to The Cat’s bento. Priced decently. Could’ve been a little more aggressively seasoned. The Mouse couldn’t detect any five-spice seasoning. But that’s just The Mouse. Also, not sure the beef was brisket, little too lean. But, try try.

The Mouse also ordered char siu bao buns, relatively cheap.

The Mouse added shiso leaves (the maybe last remnants for this season). Dunno, but the buns somehow remind me of Audry II? Any resemblance is unintentionally coincidental. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

Looks like Panda Express was extremely generous with the food yesterday.

Lots of Food!

Super greens, string bean chicken breast, teri chicken.

The Mouse “upgraded” his food with bao buns.

Bao Bun

Enhanced with a shiso leaf and a pat of Lao Gan Ma. Mmm.

The Cat had her soup noodle bowl.


Topped with scoop of Panda Express.

There was even enough food for The Mouse’s bento today. Yay!

And …

The shiso is thriving!


One of The Mouse’s favorite herb. 🙂

Stay safe and well.
