The Mouse was craving Chinese roast pork (and a little char siu). A quick stop at the neighborhood Chinese take-out.

The Mouse’s Dinner

Manapua, shiso leaves, apple, steamed rice cake, steamed pork hash. Mmm!

Local style, less dainty, more hearty. Hee hee.

Also picked up a good amount of Chinese roast pork.

Chinese Roast Pork

The Mouse’s layered bento. A few pieces of Chinese roast pork, frozen spinach, braised shredded pork.

Savory Parfait?

Really not a parfait, but you get the idea. Three minutes in the micro at the warehouse, the gelatin from the braised pork melting into the spinach. Nom! Then the Chinese roast pork in the bottom as an extra treat. Mmm! Happy Mouse.

Stay safe and well.

The main reason The Mouse ventured into Chinatown over the weekend was to pick up bamboo shoots in chili oil for The Cat.

Bamboo in Chili Oil

The bamboo gets her through late nights with noodles or jook.

The honey vinegar is from one of The Cat’s clients, locally made by one of the university campuses.

Part II of the dim sum haul The Mouse consumed.

Egg Tart, Char Siu Puff

The Mouse had the steamed dim sum for lunch (perishable), and the baked dim sum for dinner (less perishable and easier to reheat in the toaster oven). Nom.

On Friday, The Cat brought home a mixed berry pie slice for The Mouse.

Mixed Berry Pie

The Mouse likes the mixed berry pie the best among the variety that the Irish pub offers. 🙂

The slice is big enough for The Mouse to spread the eating over a couple of sessions. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

Wall Art and Dim Sum

After doctor appointment yesterday, The Mouse did a quick run into Chinatown.

Wall art in front of the parking space.

Wall Art

Kinda creepy. But one of the details caught The Mouse’s eye.


The “why” boggled The Mouse’s brain, but the drawing of the baby pig was kinda cute.

Moving on, since The Mouse was in Chinatown, did dim sum take-out. Picking up dim sum was not The Mouse’s initial purpose for heading into Chinatown.

Steamed Char Siu Bao

Regular dim sum restaurant char siu bao. Standard dim sum restaurant char siu bao. On hindsight, The Mouse should have gone to Char Hung Sut to pick up char siu bao, but The Mouse wanted to stay in Chinatown as little time as possible, he is still a little paranoid about the pandemic and crowd contact.


The meatballs were saved for The Mouse’s bento tomorrow the siu mai, the shrimp dumpling, and the chive dumpling were eaten fresh along with the char siu bao with jasmine tea. Nom.

Stay safe and well.

The Mouse wanted just a little dim sum. So, on the excuse of picking bento filling for The Cat … Hee hee.

The Mouse’s Dinner

Pan-fried turnip cake and egg tart. Mmm. The crust of the egg tarts so crispy and flaky. Mmm squared.

Braised Beef Tendon in Curry

The Cat’s bento today (rice, sweet potato, vegetables, good to go), a few pieces into The Cat’s bowl of noodles last night. The Cat liked.

Stay safe and well.

Dim Sum!

The Mouse has not had for a long time.

The Cat and The Mouse were searching for someplace to eat after a Costco run. Kinda stumbled upon this place.


Poor thing, only opened for a few weeks before they were forced to lock down. Luckily they were able to reopen.

Black Bean Spare Ribs

Falling off the bone. 🙂

Beef Tendon in Curry

Soft and squishy. Very well cooked.

Salted Egg Custard Bun

The Cat wanted to try.

The Cat Bite View

She said wasn’t as good as other places, not really The Mouse’s taste. But good to try.

Stay safe and well.
