Archive for the ‘Dim Sum’ Category

The Mouse hasn’t eaten yum cha in a loooong while. The Cat and The Mouse running errands. Thought we had to get something from Chinatown but changed our minds. But since we were there. Hee hee.

The restaurant was inundated with take-out orders, staff a bit frazzled. The Cat and The Mouse didn’t get to order a couple of dim sum that we wanted. Next time.

Stay safe and well.

Yum Cha

Still catching up with visit from The Cat’s schoolmate. Yum cha at Tim Ho Wan chain.

Probably not what you’re thinking. Not MickyD’s.

Mmm “Dim Sum”

The Mouse ran an errand for The Cat. Neighborhood Chinese take-out. One crispy gau gee, three pork hash, one manapua, and one almond cookie. Mmm. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

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.
