The Mouse had to pick-up his prescription near the airport. “Chinese-American” eats nearby. Throwback decades ago when Chinese food was “exotic”. Restauranteurs here would offer Chinese food, burgers and fries, and plate lunches to appeal to the masses. To The Mouse, this place is a rare-find relic to the past.

The Mouse’s original plan was won ton soup with vegetables and a burger. An accurate order would have been saimin and a burger (It’s a local thing), but The Mouse is a rebel. Hee hee.

But Saturday special noodles was cheaper. Remember, The Mouse is sometimes “pake”.

Crispy Gau Gee Mein

Gravy, not soup, gau gee, not won ton, fried not steamed. Same same, hee hee.

Before, at these Chinese-American places, cornstarch slurry is a constant friend. Same here.

To make a true “Chinese-American” experience, The Mouse also ordered.

Hamburger Delux

Everything for less than 10 bucks! Prices must be throwback too! Hee hee.

Not to leave The Cat out, The Mouse picked up half a roast duck for her dindin and bento protein.

Roast Duck

The Cat’s verdict? Not bad, Chinatown is better, but it’s decent. No complaints.

Enjoy. Eat well.

“Happy Meal”

The Mouse has been a fan of Mickey D’s Happy Meal “forever”. Kinda like Cracker Jacks (when the toys inside were better).

The Mouse also loves steak and foie gras combo.

Last night’s Happy Meal mod was the best. The poor mouse version of steak and foie gras. Hee hee.

The Mouse’s Happy Meal

Extra onions, extra pickle, slice of liverwurst (from the refridge), the burger patty is underneath. Nom! The Mouse think this will be the new Happy Meal from now on. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Saturday schedule, super whacked. Late afternoon lunch after dropping off presents. The Mouse wanted something simple. Palace Saimin all the way across town, way too far (with Christmas shopping traffic). Ended up here.


Another fifty-year plus establishment.

The Mouse opted for a local fave combo.

Smalll Saimin with Vegetables


Hamburger Deluxe

Why we in SPAM Land eat these two dishes together? Dunno. but that’s the way it is. Hee hee.

Oh, and in keeping a theme running. This place also had a little pond.

Koi Pond

Smaller number of koi, cute. No fish food though. Sigh.

Oh, and if you look closely at the first picture, notice the help wanted sign. Looking for all positions, no experience necessary. Maybe The Mouse will apply for something in the kitchen. Hee hee.

Hope your holiday season has been happy so far.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Mouse’s dinner. Local Boy Sushi. Primarily catering with a small take-out window.

Big Bruddah Bowl

Not that big, shallow bowl, not quite enough rice. Ahi poke (decent), spicy tuna (decent), kalua pork (good), smoked pork (winner), unagi (weakest link), shrimp tempura (passable).

And, no stop at Local Boy Sushi without Mr. Lee’s hamburger (deluxe).

Mr. Lee’s Hamburger Deluxe

Super old school. 😉

Enjoy. Eat well.

Mid-week farmers market to buy bread. Didn’t exactly have the type The Mouse wanted so “settled”. Sigh.

And since The Mouse was there …

A quick stop at Ruby Tuesday. Hee hee.

Classic Burger

Medium rare. One of The Mouse’s “usual”.

And … being “pake”, gotta make two meals out of one. Hee hee.

So … first meal is what the server called the “salad” sandwich.


Burger for later, left side untouched, right side loaded up with mushrooms and bacon from the salad bar. 🙂

Next night, bread (from the farmers market), the burger, schmear of Vegemite, Dijon mustard, and pickles from Picnics from the Vine (farmers market vendor), and shiso leaves.

The Mouse’s “Burger”

Probably the last shiso leaves of the season. 😦

In The Mouse’s humble opinion, the second burger was better than any commercial combination. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.
