Steamed Buns!

Hee hee!

Picked up from the Korean grocery store.

Steamed Brown Rice Buns

Ingredients include “raisin” and “walnut”. Turns out, the label wasn’t a typo.

I think the bun had one raisin, and part of a walnut. At least the label wasn’t lying. Hmm.

No matter, the bun was still tasty. Texture between Chinese bao and whole wheat dinner roll.

Try try. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

And a little bit of that.

Korean grocery store, cold tables offering various prepared vegetables and foods, charging by the pound.

Been wanting to try a few things from the table but not exactly knowing what is what, always a bit hesitant. Saturday, put on my big mouse pants and gave a few things a shot (nothing too exotic).

The Mouse’s Saturday night dinner.

Kimbab, Rolled Egg Omelet, Prepared Choi Sum, Spicy Fried Tofu (two ways)

All from the Korean grocery store.

Still not up to trying the raw spicy crab and other unfamiliar offerings. One step at a time.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Not really, planned to stop in to look for The Cat’s Valentine’s Day gift, part of it anyway. But, a food tour of Seoul was on the Travel Channel.

Saturday, for most of the day, freak shower and wind weather. First Korean grocery store in Kalihi didn’t have the item I was looking for. The branch near Ala Moana did. More on that next time.

Lunch was at the grocery store, it was already past lunch time.

Bi Bim Bap

Pretty good being in a styrofoam container. Definitely order again.

Kimchi and Gojiuang Sauce

Ate the kimchi, took the Guojujang sauce home for a future dish.

Seaweed Soup

Came with the order, not the greatest, but since it came with the order … ok.

Also order a fried potato thingy.

Spiral Cut Potato Thingy

Cross between a chip and french fry. Not sure if this was Korean, Good though.

Enjoy. Eat well.

A Blast from the Past

We used to frequent here.

Sign

One day, many many many years ago, The Cat saw a few six-legged “eating companions” (if you catch my drift) and gagged. Haven’t been back since (wayyyyyy before I even started this blog).

Last night, after getting the Kobe beef, Pamplona, and milking treatment, and running a couple of errands, ended up there. Green card in the window, four stars on Yelp, should be “safe”.

Got in twenty minutes before closing. Ordered Bibimbap (something quick and easy).

Bibimbap

Comes in a bombucha bowl, whole slices bulgogi and BBQ chicken, lots of veggies. Enough to feed an army, or one hungry Mouse. 🙂

Not refined (large cuts of meats and vegetables), but massive quantity and decent taste, and priced right.

All Mixed Up

All Mixed Up

The Mouse scarfed the bowl before close. 🙂

Funny thing, the proprietor recognized me and said “long time no see”.

A big thank you for the past and current service people. It’s because of you we can sit here and write blogs and stuff. Mahalo!

Enjoy. Eat well.

At the Korean Market

Yesterday. Weird day.

Started off okay. Searched the mall for breakfast. Nothing appealing.

Ended up at the “food court” at the Korean “super” market nearby.

Breakfast special.

Ginseng Chicken "Jook"

Ginseng Chicken “Jook”

Had this once before. Seems like the price went up and the quantity and quality went down a bit. 😦

Healthy though.

Vegetable Kimbap

For a later snack.

Bought

Shelled and Roasted Chestnuts -Bought

As part of The Cat’s lunch “bento”.

Wasn’t heading home for dinner yesterday, so in the want column, not in the bought column yesterday.

Satuday’s adventure continues on the next post.

Enjoy. Eat well.
