My Cuz’s Fault

Last week, he sends me this picture.

Chinese Beef Stew with Tendons

Chinese Beef Stew with Tendons

Aaargh! From Lam’s Kitchen in Chinatown. If you look closely, near 9:00, there’s a large scoop of house made chili in oil. Looks like this.

So you know what I was thinking about since last week. Today, couldn’t stand it anymore. Lunch.

Beef Stew with Tendon, Look Funn Noodle Soup

The majority of the time, given the choice between rice or noodles, The Mouse chooses rice. Except for Chinese beef stew with tendon, gotta be with noodles in soup, weird yeah?

Friday Food Day

Friday turned out to be a pretty good day, food-wise.

Started with a SPAM musubi.

SPAM Musubi with Egg

SPAM Musubi with Egg

It was okay. The slight char of the SPAM was good, and the little omelet was a plus, but the ratio of rice and SPAM was off. Sorry, kind of a snob when it comes to SPAM musubi. Would I buy it again? Maybe, not on a regular basis though.

Lunch was a change-up from the usual for the past couple of months (lau lau and kalua pork)

Mix Plate

Mix Plate

Blackened tuna with sweet wasabi cream and fried tuna poke, no rice, all greens. From the same lunch wagon. Both were done well given the health department’s requirement that food served from mobile food businesses cannot be “raw”, except for salads. Both fish were a little tough (just a little), but the flavors compensated for the lack of “rareness”.

Dinner with the cuz’s (the D&G cuzs, not the B&P cuzs) and friends at Haleiwa Joe’s at Haiku Gardens. Got there late, only had time to order and eat. Went with a salad.

Ginger Peanut Chicken Salad

Ginger Peanut Chicken Salad

A lightly marinated, grilled chicken breast, sliced & served on fresh baby greens with a spicy ginger dressing & roasted peanuts. The greens and dress was good, although did not get too much of the spicy ginger part, the chicken was more like chicken at a seminar lunch … meh. Lighted up the dish with the mini flashlights (too dark, iPhone 3G no flash :))

Sticky Ribs

Sticky Ribs

 

The Cat’s order. ½ rack of baby back pork ribs cooked in our soy-ginger sauce, char-grilled. Served with rice & green papaya salad. The ribs were fall off the bone tender. The Cat at first didn’t care for the smoky taste but got used to it. The Mouse likes smoky.  The green papaya salad? Next time leave it to the experts … pass. Definitely would order the ribs again.

All in all, not a bad Friday.

Have a safe Memorial Day tomorrow (if it is a holiday for you).

Enjoy. Eat well.

Not for the Faint of Stomach

Not suitable for those with delicate stomachs. Definitely not for those with squeamish stomachs.

Made by The Cat’s mother.

What's It?

What’s It?

Can you guess? It’s a jar of drunken chicken feet (don’t mind the labels, she used an empty salsa jar). Looks more like a specimen jar more comfortable in Dr. Frankenstein’s lab. If you’re thinking why in the first place, The Cat likes drunken chicken with regular chicken parts. The drunken chicken feet is a first.

Let’s take a look from another angle, from the top of the jar.

Wait, I just noticed, The Cat’s mother did not cut the first joint off, she just trimmed the toenails. Ewwwww! Gag! Just kidding!:)

Maybe if she gave the toes a pedicure they might look a little  better. Just kidding, just kidding.:)

I bet now you have a mental picture that you can’t get out of your mind. Sorry, sorry. Hee hee.

So, a little noodles for yesterday’s post, some choi sum, and the notorious chicken feet (with some of the soaking liquor) … and

Ta Dah!

Ta Dah!

The Cat’s assessment, the noodles were  good, the greens were fresh, the chicken feet were a little too al dente … fail (good thing she doesn’t read English). Crunch, crunch, crunch.

Chicken feet is supposed to be fall off the bone, almost melting (at least that’s how we like it). I’ll going to take the rest out of the liquor and simmer them in some broth for an hour or more. Then it should be okay.

Sorry, chicken feet with painted toenails. Ugh! Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Lately, we’ve been tasting and consuming quite a bit of liquor-themed foods.

This past Sunday, an impromptu chocolate tasting. Chefs made some new ganache flavors.

Chefs are also experimenting with soju and awamori liquors, Korean and Okinawan liquors respectively.

Don’t ask which is which, I forgot.

Then, The Cat’s mother made drunken chicken (The Cat’s favorite chicken dish). Me, not so much (too alcoholly for my taste).

I know, it looks like some kind of experimental specimen gone wrong.:)

I tried making this once, a long time ago, and failed. Have to ask The Cat to ask her mother for instructions.

Normally, we would say don’t drink and drive, in our case, it’s don’t eat and drive. Hee hee, Hic!

Enjoy. Eat well.
