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.

More of the dried turnip kimchi, The Mouse really likes.

The Mouse’s Lunch

The Mouse might pick up a container soon. Yay for employee discount.

The Mouse’s Dinner

Canned salmon with rapeseed flower greens. The greens are imported by the warehouse, pre-cooked and frozen. Convenient.

The Cat’s Dinner

Shredded pork soup with dried bamboo shoot, rapeseed flower greens, and wood ear fungus. With a touch of whiskey to finish. \ooo/

Enjoy. Eat well.

Mixed Rice

Comfort food for The Mouse. After another doctor appointment, which he kept me waiting almost an hour, hunting and gathering soup ingredients, The Mouse was starving.


With spicy pork. Nom!

Did The Mouse mention he was starving? Also ordered a side of steamed egg (first time trying for The Mouse?)

Steamed Egg

In the words of Agnes, “it’s so fluffy!” Think chawanmushi souffle. The Mouse was happy. The micro diced raw carrots on top could’ve gone (texturally weird with the soft “custard), but otherwise, really good.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Both The Cat and The Mouse have been staying late at work. Not much time to eat/cook at home. Picked up from the Korean grocery on the way home.

Shoyu Chicken

Korean style, less sweet than the local/Japanese version.

Egg Omelet Sushi

The Mouse thinks fried instead of “steamed”, more savory than sweet (as compared with the Japanese version). Both good. 🙂

The rice was flavored with sesame seeds and oil. Nom!

Hope next week is more normal.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Picks for The Cat’s bento this week.

From the Korean grocery store.

Steamed Red Bean Buns

Not as sweet and the Japanese or Chinese red bean preparation, The Mouse’s opinion, taste was almost savory.

Fried Sweet Potato

The already prepped food helps The Mouse out in assembling The Cat’s bento. 🙂

The Cat’s Sunday Post-Hibernation Eats

Scrambled eggs, preserved mustard cabbage, pork fu on a jook bed.

Enjoy. Eat well.
