The Cat had another errand on the west side of SPAM Land. Lunch at one of our “new” favorite locations. Mandalay Restaurant. They used to be downtown which was a hassle for The Mouse. They downsized and moved to the Kaimuki area. Accessible parking, less crowded. Yay!

Steamed Tripe
Eggplant (Mild)
Seafood Fried Noodles
Custard Tart

Appears that The Cat will be making semi regular errands in that area, The Mouse is looking forward to more visits. Mmm. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

The Mouse on another errand for The Cat. Near Yen Yen chop suey. The Mouse’s favorite Chinese plate lunch.

Plate Lunch

Rice, ginger onion chicken, pot roast pork, beef with vegetables, fried won ton (two). The Mouse packed the rice, chicken, vegetables, and part of the pot roast pork to The Cat’s bento, he ate the beef, fried won ton, and the rest of the pot roast pork. Mmm.

Stay safe and well.

Pork <3

The Mouse took a detour on the way home from servicing his car the other day. A little Chinese prepared food concession in a grocery store.

Manapua and Pork Hash

Mmm! Craving satiated. Hee hee.

Chinese Roast Pork

More mmm! This will last a couple of meals. 🙂 ❤

Stay safe and well.

The Chinese restaurant that used to be downtown moved to the outskirts of the city. The owners said the downtown location was too big. The Cat and The Mouse coming back from an errand, both getting hungry. Too late for dim sum.

Salt and Pepper Porkchop

Moist and tender.

Chinese Broccoli

Cooked well, tender but still crisp.

Singapore Style Rice Noodle

Mild curry flavor. One of the better versions The Mouse has eaten recently.

Appears that there will be more errands in this area, repeat visits to this eatery might be in the foreseeable future. 🙂

Maybe early enough to get dim sum.

Stay safe and well,

The Cat and The Mouse try “spicy” Chinese restaurant (Chendu Taste) in search for mapo tofu (The Cat’s been wanting for a while).

The food:

Mapo Tofu

The reason for the search. Ingredients included Szechuan peppercorns (tongue numbing), and fermented black beans. The Mouse thinks just a touch more spice. But good as is.

Tomato and Egg

Another dish The Cat was in the mood for.

Smoked Pork Belly with Bamboo Shoot and Bell Pepper

The Cat thought this was recommended by a friend, maybe ordered incorrectly? Not what The Cat envisioned, The Mouse enjoyed anyway.

Spicy Cabbage

In The Mouse’s (and The Cat’s) opinion, best dish of the day. Salty, little spicy, with Szechuan peppercorns. Seasoning went very well with the cabbage. Not to mention the cabbage was cooked perfectly, cooked through but still crunchy. Mmm.

The Cat approved a return sometime. 🙂

Stay safe and well.
