Ran out for an early car appointment yesterday, some kinda recall. Not safety, performance. While waiting, hunted for breakfast.

Found on Yelp

Also recommended by the service people. Must be good. Hee hee.

Joe Moco Special

Homemade corned beef hash, fried rice, gravy, two eggs, and bacon! Yum! The fried rice was okay, everything else was very good.

The breakfast was kinda an impromptu egg themed couple of days which started on Friday. Finally got off to work early enough to stop by here.

Famous Cheap Eats

Their hours:


Ordered the basic bacon and eggs.

Bacon and Eggs

Rice, 4 strips of bacon, three eggs, and toast, just over $6 bucks, almost a steal.

The Mouse mixed the breakfast with natto.

Rice and eggs with natto

From small-kid time, The Mouse likes “mixed rice”. Jus’ because. Hee hee.

Lunch also involved natto.

Natto with Turnip Kimchi

Nom! The Mouse getting his probiotics. Hee hee.

The Cat also had her Friday noms.

She found a place near her new office that serves …

Mudd Pie

Stress reliever.

And, every Friday, management at The Cat’s building sponsors musicians, lunchtime respite.

Musical Styling

The Cat and The Mouse meeting up with Qi Master and wife later today. Hot pot again? Maybe Ruby Tuesdays.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Mouse needed to take a walk around the mid-week farmers market. A visit and purchase from Picnics from the Vine (pic later), and a bargain din-din purchase.

Summer Rolls

One chicken, one beef. Not bad, just sitting for a bit (rice paper kinda chewy). But, it was bargain priced. Nothing a schmear of peanut butter couldn’t solve. Hee hee.

Rice Noodle Bento

Again, chicken and beef combo. The Mouse ate the beef, everything else went into The Cat’s bento today.

The Cat had her own “hump day” food.

Assorted Chinese Take-Out


Fried Rice

She and her minions still working on the tax deadline.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Place had good reviews, The Mouse had an urge to try.


I know, hospital cafeteria, but, write up was intriguing (from their website).

The Bistro is Adventist Health Castle’s cafeteria, located in the hospital’s lower level and open to the public.


In keeping with the traditions of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, The Bistro emphasizes good health.

Several features distinguish The Bistro from the cafeterias in most hospitals:

  • Although some of our dishes are made with dairy products or eggs, no meat at all is served.
  • We emphasize fresh foods. At every meal, there is always a selection of cooked fresh vegetables, fresh fruit, and a salad bar.
  • We take pride in not using dishes that are pre-prepared. Nearly all of our entrées are made from scratch. As much as possible, we use individual ingredients, not pre-packaged combinations.
  • Although not all of our dishes are moderate in fat and sodium, we always offer something that is.
  • We always offer at least one entrée that is strictly vegan—containing no dairy products or eggs.

The Mouse’s plate.

Mock Beef Broccoli, Vegan Lasagna, Roasted Eggplant and Bell Pepper

Not bad, bearing in mind this was a hospital after all. I think in trying to lessen the salt and oil, the chef over seasoned the dishes slightly. In The Cat’s words, “kinda medicine-y” taste. But price was decent, and try try.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Hot Pot

Newly introduced to The Cat and The Mouse. Kinda in the neighborhood, couple miles. The Cat’s been here twice, The Mouse thrice. A compilation.

Seafood and Vegetable ‘Fridges

Did I mention AYCE. 🙂

Sauce Bar

Notice the various suggestion (pictures in the back).

The Mouse’s combination.

Garlic, Chinese Parsley, Green Onion, Salt, Sesame Oil

Almost a salad. Hee hee.

Grated Turnip and Ponzu



Instead of open containers, this restaurant plates and wraps individual portions. Probably more sanitary and cuts waste. Poor dishwasher though.

The Mouse’s Meat

Ribeye and pork belly. Nom!

Seasoned Ground Pork

Even The Cat tried this one. Hee hee.

The Cat’s Soup

And the topper?


Part of the “vegetable” selection. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.
