Archive for the ‘Buffet’ Category

First an update. The “no feet soup” did jell just a bit, with the thinnest lay of fat on the top. Not really photogenic, so no picture.

The neighborhood Ruby Tuesday is running a promotion for June, bring in a can of food for the food bank, and the restaurant knocks off $5.00 the check.

Since yesterday was a holiday for The Mouse …

Veggie Trio

Green beans, zucchini, baked potato. The order comes with “all you can eat” salad bar.

The Mouse’s salad bar plate

So, The Mouse, being pake, filled up on the salad bar, and took home the potato and zucchini for another day. Appears The Mouse is not the only one with this strategy, read it in an online food article too. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Not a Typo

Intrigued by the pictures and reviews on Yelp, tried here for lunch today.

Why hang Japanese kitchen curtains in a “Chinese” restaurant? Dunno, maybe it’s cheaper than hanging doors.

And who came up with the name? Sigh.

Anyway, the two signs outside enticed The Mouse.

OK ...

OK …

 

Even Better

Even Better

With the discount, price not much more than a “decent” plate lunch, and drinks and dessert included. The pake in The Mouse smiles.

What piqued The Mouse’s interest was the pictures and comments on their char siu and roast pork. So, The Mouse’s first plate.

Roast Pork, Char Siu, Stir-Fried Napa Cabbage, Pot Stickers, Broccoli

Roast Pork, Char Siu, Stir-Fried Napa Cabbage, Pot Stickers, Broccoli

Hmm. Roast pork was decent, can’t compare to still on the hook in Chinatown, but passable. The char siu? Meh. But (almost) any char siu is better than none.

Egg Fu Yung, Deep Fried Tofu, Kung Pao Chicken, Beef Stew, More Roast Pork

Egg Fu Yung, Deep Fried Tofu, Beef Broccoli,  Kung Pao Chicken, Beef Stew, Mapo Tofu, More Roast Pork

Everything on the plate was serviceable, the surprise was the beef stew, must’ve been a really cheap cut of meat, but simmered for a loooooong time, “almost like buttah”. The cartiledge, fat, and little bit of meat melding together into a little bite of ahhh!

There was also a salad bar, but nothing for The Mouse to want to give up limited tummy space for.

Egg Drop Soup

Was okay, too much corn starch.

Mung Bean Dessert Soup

The mung bean soup was pretty good.

Chocolate Pudding

All in all, not bad, not the greatest, but not bad. The restaurant has a contract with one of the Chinese airlines to feed the flight crew after all. Good thing there’s a Kama‘aina discount. Probably would feel different at full price.

Soda and tea included.

Try try.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Mouse had stopped in at Donut King in the morning to pick up donut holes for the office, and since he was there … Hee hee.

Didn’t get a chance to eat it during the day. Brought it home for “dinner”. “Life’s too short, eat dessert first”. 🙂

The Cat wanted something warm, squishy, and soupy.
