The Cat worked late tonight. Plus trying to clear the refrig.

The Cat's Bowl

Since The Cat likes “squishy” food, ancient grain “jook”, leftover pork chop, white stem cabbage, dried seaweed.

The Mouse not that enthused with “squishy” food.

The Cat’s regular duck noodle place has been hit or miss lately. Thought we’d change it up for this past Sunday. Our old stomping grounds, Kin Wah Chop Suey.

Pot Roast Duck Soup Noodle

Pot Roast Duck Soup Noodle

As far as we know, it’s the only place that has pot roast duck (vs. roast duck) soup noodle on the menu (they also have roast duck soup noodle on the menu).

The difference is the duck is softer, the fat isn’t rendered out, the taste is more stew than char. The Cat had fun and leftovers for dinner.

The Mouse went with a chop suey staple.

Special Plate "B"

Special Plate “B”

Kau Yuk, Spareribs, Beef Broccoli, Fried Shrimp, Crisp Gau Gee & Rice. Sooo Chinese. Not! Hee hee.

Anyways, the sweet sour spareribs inspired The Mouse to try his own version.

Country Style Pork Spare Ribs

A little too lean, but, was cheap.

Vinegar, salt, sugar, sake, braise for a couple of hours.

Sweet Sour Spare Ribs - The Mouse Version

Sweet Sour Spare Ribs – The Mouse Version

A little too meaty, flavor didn’t penetrate enough. We’ll see how the leftovers are (after sitting in the braising liquid)

Enjoy. Eat well.
