After the Concert

The Cat was given tickets to a choral concert Sunday, she did some deeply discounted accounting work for them.

After the concert, The Cat and The Mouse tried to find somewhere to eat. Could not find parking at several locations, ended up in Chinatown. Hunan restaurant. Ordered simple, not spicy.

Noodz with Pork and Vegetable

Comfort food.

Sauteed Greens

Some kinda “spinach”? Whatever it was, it was good.

And the star of the show?

Steamed Pork Belly with Preserved Vegetable

Cooked very well. Tender, not dried, not “greasy”. The Cat thinks they pre-boiled to render the oil out. Nom!

The Mouse wants to go back to try their buns and dumplings!

Enjoy. Eat well.

Lately, for some reason, The Mouse has difficulty finding lunch on Saturdays. Yesterday was no exception. He couldn’t change lanes fast enough to reach a Japanese musubi and curry shop, the nearby golf course restaurant was closed for a private event. Ugh! The Mouse made his way here.

Front

The Mouse has been here before, a little out of the way for him, not as far as the other side of the mountain, but still, next town over.

Char Siu and Roast Duck on Rice

One of their lunch specials. good taste, good quantity, fair price. The Mouse took home half.

Also ordered a lunch plate for take-out, bento prep.

Lunch Plate

Beef with vegetables, cold ginger chicken, pot roast pork, rice, crispy wonton.

Two plates, four decent meals. Good deal.

Too bad the place is not closer. Maybe just takes a little more effort, and gas, on The Mouse’s part.

Heading out to the farmers market then brunch with doctor friend at Chef H’s restaurant. More exciting and expensive pics to come.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Chinese eats at favorite neighborhood chop suey “palace”.

Egg Drop Soup

The Mouse could make at home, but good to have someones else cook, temporarily.

Stir-Fried Bitter Melon

Always a favorite vegetable. If The Mouse gets ambitious down the road, maybe stuffed bitter melon?

Pot Roast Pork with Gravy

OMG! One of the best pork dishes in recent memory, full of flavor, and tender to the core! Repeat for sure!

Steamed Buns

The Cat’s favorite, up there with rice.

Steamed Buns, Pot Roast Pork, Perfect Combo

And a little sweet ending for The Mouse.

Fortune Cookie, Almond Cookie

The food? Enough for dinner, dinner the next night, and two bento for The Cat, one bento for The Mouse. Good deal!

Enjoy. Eat well.

A change of pace, The Mouse wanted Chinese Chop Suey after the Sunday farmers market. The Mouse’s favorite neighborhood chop suey house.

Chow Funn

With vegetables and char siu. Yum.

Moo Shu Pork

So far, normal chop suey fare. Hee hee.

Moo Shu Wraps

The Mouse has a hunch the wraps were tortilla, not Chinese. No matter, semantics. Hee hee.

Pot Roast Chicken

Hmm, not quite pot roast chicken. The Mouse’s opinion. This was crispy skin chicken with gravy and water chestnuts as a disguise.  The Mouse thought pot roast chicken was slow braised with rich gravy. Still good, more research needed.

Roast Pork with Choi Sum

Greens. 🙂

Loads of leftovers. Mouse bento (plural). Yay!

Enjoy. Eat well.

Just a suggestion, don’t get old. Ugh. Blood and number 1 test.

Breakfast (after tests) take out from Micky D’s (plus pantry).

The Mouse’s Breakfast

Oatmeal (for fiber), griddle cake? (first time try for The Mouse, it’s good!), breakfast burrito, lotsa condiments from the pantry.

The Mouse is not quite sure what the griddle cake is but The Mouse likes.

The Mouse ventured to the next “town” the lunch plate from a chop suey house looked interesting. Expectations exceeded.

Lunch Plate

Rice, cold ginger chicken, pot roast pork, beef and vegetables, two crispy won ton. Good stuff, reasonably priced too! Most of the chicken and little more than half of the pork going to this week’s bento for The Cat (two days), The Mouse ate the rest. Nom! Taste was decent too! Yay!

Definitely will return.

The Mouse was trying to wean off carbs but after the poking and prodding, he needed comfort food. 🙂

Off to the farmers market.

Enjoy. Eat well.
