Yauatcha adventure, part 2.

Just a reminder, where we ate (see previous post).



Red fruits mascarpone

Strawberry, raspberry and blackcurrant compote, pistachio.

I think that what this was, we kinda left dessert choices up to our server.

Tropical dome

Coconut dacquoise, lililko’i, pineapple.

Chefs compared this to a super light cheesecake in texture and taste.

Raspberry delice

Raspberry, Manjari chocolate, lychee.

And of course, can’t leave without a macaron (or two).


Dunno the flavors, left that up to our server, The Mouse went to the restroom before the desserts came out, returned to table and plates were served, chefs were ready to dive in. They liked.

Enjoy. Eat well.

But first, update on the pork foot soup.

Solidified Beautifully

Yesterday. First day of classes on campus. Cashiers have to operate their window constantly. As a show of “unity”, no one goes out for lunch. Office buys lunch in. The Mouse ordered vegetarian chili.

Office also brought in desserts and snacks (co-worker’s b-day).




After eating the cake and fruit, The Mouse was too full for the chili. Took it home for dindin.

The Mouse’s Dinner Plate

Hollowed out baked potato (from Sunday’s lunch), filled with sun-dried tomato, the potato “inside”, topped with Zippy’s vegetarian chili. Nom! 🙂

Today is supposed to be more of the same, just no “free” lunch. Sigh.

Enjoy. Eat well.

It was Mrs. P’s b-day the other day. Chef made a birthday cake. The Cat requested a slice.

Chef sent over a picture with the caption “here’s your cake”.


Chef sent over a box the next day.

Shipping Container

Box was large enough to fit a whole cake. The Cat thought chef made another whole cake for her. Silly cat.


A slice of hazelnut mousse with meringue, whipped cream, coconut, and berries. Already starting to disintegrate. The Cat and her minion ate it in The Cat’s office. Cake would not have survived for The Mouse to taste.

That’s okay. The Mouse had a beer.

Ginger Beer

Less drama and trauma. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Superstition? Probably. Reward after getting a “thumbs up” from the doc? Maybe.

Whatever the reasoning in my warped mind. Hee hee.

Yesterday’s lunch, at Sweet Home Glad, after a visit to the doctor (regular check-up, old people issues).

Steamed Fish Filet, Ginger and Onion

The steamed fish probably doctor approved, the steamed rice, not so much. Sigh.

But then, The Mouse kinda got a little carried away.

Roast Pork Belly, Pan-Fried Chicken Dumplings

See? Told ya. And no, not everyday, just sometimes. 🙂

While waiting for The Cat, had a little sweet. Nordstrom Gelato Bar

Blood Orange Sorbet

And …

Pineapple Li Hing Mui

The Mouse loved the blood orange sorbet and the pineapple li hing mui tasted great from the taste spoon, but a whole scoop of the pineapple li hing mui was a little too much li hing mui-y for me. Oh well, try try.

Stay tuned, the little plate theme carries over to the next post.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Years ago, there was a hotel restaurant that half the menu was “Italian” and half the menu was “Chinese”. Go figure. But, in our opinion, they made the best tiramisu. Moist, full of chocolate and coffee flavors, yum! Whether authentic or not, we didnʻt care. We liked it.

Alas, several years ago they hotel changed its concept and the restaurant is no more. Neither is the tiramisu.:(

Since then, there has been no substitutes that came close. A frozen tiramisu from Costco, of all places, came close (although very distantly), but itʻs no longer sold at Costco.

To the present, New Yearʻs eve dinner. The Italian cafe up the street, tried their tiramisu, even though our server recommended the cheesecake.



It was … okay. The Sinéad O’Connor song was playing in my mind (Nothing Compares to You). Hee hee.

IMO, not enough coffee, chocolate, and liquor flavors.

We were full after dinner (Chicken Pomodoro and Gnocchi Primavera) that we took most of the tiramisu home.

So, for next dayʻs after lunch “snack”, where a nap would be perfectly appropriate (hee hee), I “sprinkled” (read loaded up) the leftover tiramisu.

"Drunken" Tiramisu

“Drunken” Tiramisu

A “little” bit of Kahlúa coffee liqueur, and vanilla Jim Beam, just to “moisten” the tiramisu. Hee hee hic.

Much better after the tiramisu “thirst” was “quenched”. Hee hee

The Mouse settled down for a nice new year nap. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.
