The Cat and The Mouse met with friends to catch up. A “Hong Kong” style cafe.

The Cat ordered.

Hainan Chicken

The Mouse ordered.

Tendon and Won Ton over Rice

Really good, a good portion of rice, the tendon, wonton, and vegetable just a little sparse though.

Unfortunately, the restaurant is another victim of the situation that cannot be named.

Aww!

The Cat and The Mouse did not frequent this restaurant (this was actually our first time), it was recommended to us by my urologist. But still “the situation that cannot be named” has taken its toll. Sad.

The Cat saw on the menu a porkchop dish that piqued her interest. Hopefully, we can make another visit before …

Be safe and well.

The Cat and The Mouse running errands across the mountain. Brunch at Anna Miller’s.

The Place

According to something The Mouse read, there used to be a chain of restaurants mostly in Japan, and one in SPAM Land. As of August 31, 2022, the last of the restaurants in Japan will close leaving the SPAM Land location the last bastion.

The Mouse ordered.

Chili Pot Pie

Also on the menu was chicken pot pie but the cream gravy scared The Mouse. Order came with side salad and cornbread.

Cornbread

The chili was okay, the crust was fabulously flakey, made up for any deficiencies of the chili. Too bad The Mouse can’t try the pie crust with the creamed chicken.

The cornbread was split and grilled. Mmm.

The Cat ordered.

Omelet with Cornbread

Mushroom, tomato, and avocado. The stuffing was generous. The Cat thought the omelet needed a little more oil and salt.

The Cat and The Mouse couldn’t leave without trying a slice of pie.

Pecan Pie

Again, the crust, chef’s kiss, muah! The filling was pretty good too, not overly sweet.

Be safe and well.

Adventurous Sunday, part I.

A few minutes before dinner reservations, nearby Filipino bakery.

Door

It’s a significant step up, hence the many caution signs.

Fresh and warm Spanish rolls (and more). 🙂

Noms

Spanish rolls, Ube rolls, brownies, oatmeal cookie. Noms. 🙂

First time for The Cat eating a fresh and warm Spanish roll. Paws up.

Location

Half of the menu Spanish cuisine, half of the menu Italian cuisine. SPAM Land does not have many Spanish restaurants, The Cat and The Mouse wanted to try. 🙂

Wall Decoration

Bold.

Location used to be a bank, then a conveyor belt sushi restaurant, now a Spanish/Italian dining spot. Go figure.

Vault Door

The Mouse guesses vaults are hard to remove? Hee hee. Depending on the size, might be a great private dining room or speakeasy spot. Just saying. 🙂

More about the food next time. This post is just the teaser. 🙂

Be safe and well.

The Mouse has not bought frozen soybeans for years, for various reasons. Saw at the grocery store the other day.

Package

Country of origin is Thailand, much better. Plus package was on sale.

The Mouse made a soybean, wakame, frozen spinach soup for lunch.

Vegetable Soup

The Mouse used a little too much shoyu in the base, hence the darkened color. Not good for picture, tasty though. 🙂

The Cat brought home her leftover from lunch for The Mouse.

Pasta with Meat Sauce

The Cat is acquiring the taste for meat sauce, would not have eaten before. Side note, she is trying a little spicer foods too.

Along with the pasta, The Cat ordered two side order meatballs to complete The Mouse’s meal. 🙂

Meatballs

The Mouse ate well. Mmm.

Kinda a catch-all post.

The Mouse’s leftover breakfast.

Steamed Rice, Furikake, Smoked Salmon, Poke, Pickled Grapes

The Mouse didn’t have ume (hence the pickled grapes) nor capers. Other than that, mmm. 🙂

Fruit

Oranges and grapes, to balance the breakfast.

Lao-Thai Plate

The Cat had lunch with a business associate, he ordered the plate above, mild. Served too spicy, had to be sent back.

The Cat had better luck.

Caramelized Pork Bell

Braised pork belly with hard-boiled eggs, star anise, herbs and spices. The Mouse thinks Lao-Thai version of shoyu pork. Leftover for The Cat’s bento this week.

Be safe and well.
