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.

The Mouse’s dinner last night (just don’t tell my doctor ok). Hee hee.

Steamed Chinese Bacon over Rice

In The Mouse’s defense, he did use brown rice. Could the brown rice absorb some of the fat and not get digested? Hey, it’s Christmastime, anything could happen right? 🙂

Stay safe and well.

Another doctor appointment for The Mouse. Note to all, don’t get old. Hee hee.

Anyways, since The Mouse was in the area, Bo’s Kitchen, one of the food stalls at Ohana Marketplace. Food for The Cat.

Hainan Chicken with Rice

To The Mouse’s knowledge, few places on SPAM Land serve this dish.

Chicken Feet

Mmm. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

So a week ago was mooncake day? Both The Cat and The Mouse were too busy. Plus hard to go to Chinatown.

The Mouse picked up some take-out yesterday. In The Mouse’s mind, worthy substitutes, Hee hee.

Fried Mochi Balls

Two bite sized. Perfect. No, The Mouse did not eat them all in one sitting. Warms up great in the toaster oven. The Cat is refraining, still on antibiotics.

Of course, The Mouse made a meal. Hee hee again.

Rice Cake, Char Siu Manapua

One last “must have”, according to The Mouse. 🙂

Roast Pork and Char Siu

Enough for a couple of days. Nom!

Stay safe and well.

Special #2 :)

Neighborhood Chinese/drive-inn take-out (dinner was this or Panda Express). Hee hee.

Special #2

All rice (no mac salad), spicy eggplant, chicken katsu. Enough food to contribute to four meals. 🙂

Panda Express has its place, but not last night. Supporting small local business.

Stay safe and well.
