The Mouse lucked out. The Mouse’s usual breakfast during the week is oatmeal and coffee. Yesterday, one of the founding owners was roasting sweet potatoes and gave The Mouse a chunk.



Then, one of the managers in the meat section was frying sausages for testing, rice was suggested, then eggs.

So what was supposed to be just product testing turned into breakfast, second breakfast for The Mouse. 🙂

Second Breakfast

The rice was easy, The Mouse works in an Asian warehouse, the eggs, frozen, not the greatest, but free food is free food.

Except for the warehouse atmosphere, The Mouse felt like a hobbit. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

More Tonkotsu Broth

Second of three bags of pork bones. Same same, parboil, rinse, clean water, ginger, whiskey, vinegar, simmer for hours.

The Cat’s Bowl of Soup

The spicy bamboo shoot really gives the soup an added flavor. The Cat slurped.

Pulled out a couple of pieces of rib meat from the bag of bones. Steamed with vodka and shoyu.

Steamed Pork Riblets

The Cat said not bad.

Enjoy. Eat well.

A change of pace, The Mouse wanted Chinese Chop Suey after the Sunday farmers market. The Mouse’s favorite neighborhood chop suey house.

Chow Funn

With vegetables and char siu. Yum.

Moo Shu Pork

So far, normal chop suey fare. Hee hee.

Moo Shu Wraps

The Mouse has a hunch the wraps were tortilla, not Chinese. No matter, semantics. Hee hee.

Pot Roast Chicken

Hmm, not quite pot roast chicken. The Mouse’s opinion. This was crispy skin chicken with gravy and water chestnuts as a disguise.  The Mouse thought pot roast chicken was slow braised with rich gravy. Still good, more research needed.

Roast Pork with Choi Sum

Greens. 🙂

Loads of leftovers. Mouse bento (plural). Yay!

Enjoy. Eat well.

No, not the western concept of BBQ chicken, Korean style. Semantics.

Had not had this since leaving the old job. Full order instead of mini. Because The Mouse wanted more veggie sides.

BBQ Chicken Plate

Two scoops of rice (half went to The Cat’s bento), seaweed (partial to The Cat), cucumber kimchi (The Mouse ate), just spicy, not that deep fermented flavor (meh), choi sum (most to The Cat), and simmered potato (all to The Cat), The Mouse finished the chicken. Seasoned just right for The Mouse, salty, but not excessive, still can taste chicken. Hee hee.

Picked up from the local food group/chain, think local version of Panda Express.

The Box

The Mouse thinks the mascot may have been inspired by the mascot of the Olympics when it was held in South Korea?

Off to the farmers market.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Enjoy. Eat well.
