Restaurants are still in take-out mode. Monday dinner.

Hamburger, Baked Potato Substitute for Fries

.

Ribs, Mango Kiawe Sauce

.

Teri-Chicken Plate

Family style, take a little bit of this and a little bit of that. Enough food for The Cat and The Mouse to take two bento each for lunch.

🙂

Stay safe and well.

The Mouse’s Saturday plans kinda went awry but turned out okay (actually more than okay) at the end. Original plan was to pick-up a Subway sandwich for dinner (whatever their daily special was), and a cookie (The Mouse likes the Subway cookies). However, due to COVID-19, store closed early (not that any employee was affected, just scheduling). Sigh.

Luckily there was an alternative close by. Kin Sun Chinese take-out. The Mouse ordered “light”. Hee hee.

Siu (Shu) Mai and Crispy Gau Gee

So, philosophically (or is it theoretically), are siu (shu) mai dumplings or meatballs. In this case, the filling is not fancy, mostly pork hash so meatball? But because of the wrapper, dumpling? Semantics, in any case, yum. The crispy gau gee? Again, simply stuffed, but very comforting. One of The Mouse’s pet peeves is when he bites in to any fried dumping and gets “air”. Not happening with these. Fully stuffed. Paws up. 🙂

And … since The Mouse was there … hee hee.

Chinese Roast Pork

Decent execution on the windward side. Saves a drive over to town. 🙂

And the cookie?

Chinese Almond Cookie

The Mouse was satiated. Until next time. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

Late afternoon doctor appointment. Not virus related. Close to a Chinese take-out with very positive reviews. The Mouse try try.

Sign

Located in a former Sports Authority cavern that’s been subdivided into a bazaar-like space. One of the few place The Mouse could find that serves Hainan Chicken (one of The Cat’s favorite).

Hainan Chicken and Rice

The Cat’s bento today. The Mouse just had to cook/pack vegetables. 🙂

Since he was there … hee hee.

Spicy Won Ton

The Mouse ordered mild, still had a kick (in a good way). Four paws up! Will definitely return. There’s a braised brisket on rice that is tempting.

Hopefully The Mouse can get another visit/order in before the city goes into full lockdown. 😦

Wishing all safety and health.

Enjoy. Eat well.

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.
