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.

Main

Snake River Farm guava BBQ Kurobuta pork shank, pan gravy, garlic mashed potato, steamed rice, haricot vert, braised red cabbage. Fall off the bone. Mmm! Both The Cat and The Mouse ordered. Leftovers! 🙂

Dessert, The Cat’s

Strawberry parfait, Italian ladyfingers, fresh macerated strawberries, mascarpone cheese, chantilly cream.

Too much dairy for The Mouse.

Dessert, The Mouse’s

French chocolate decadence cake, chocolate hazelnut gelato, mango sorbet, raspberries.

The Cat and The Mouse very happy and full. And happy birthday to Mrs. P.

Be safe and well.

Be safe and well.
