Try Try

The Mouse used to frequent a Korean BBQ restaurant before the event that cannot be named. They used to offer a lunch buffet for a reasonable price (no cheap eats). The buffet table usually contained several kim chee vegetables, rice, seaweed soup, a fried or grilled dish (usually chicken), and a stir-fried or stew (kim chee stew). Once in a while, a treat. Then the event that cannot be named happened.

Recently, the restaurant semi-restored its lunch offering. Two protein or tempura choices, rice, vegetable, and soup all you can eat.

The Mouse ordered mahi jun and BBQ pork.

Mahi Jun, BBQ Pork

The Mouse felt the plate/serving was a little sparse. The Mouse thinks with the rising food cost, restaurant had to decide to keep cost reasonable or reduce portions. The Mouse can’t fault small business, but as a consumer, situation was a bit jarring.

The selection of kimchi was also cut down a bit.


Cucumber and cabbage kimchi, bean sprouts, green salad, and macaroni salad. Pre-unspeakable, there maybe two more vegetable offerings? Oh well.

Seaweed Soup, Fried Rice

The Mouse loaded up on vegetables, soup, and salad. Purposely took home the pork for The Cat’s bento. The fish would not survive as leftover.

The Mouse will return, to support small business, just not too often.

Posting late, internet connection was down, slightly windy weather.

Be safe, eat good.

Comfort Foods

The Cat and The Mouse haven’t eaten BiBimBap for a while. Sunday lunch.

The Cat’s order.

Stone Pot BiBimBap

The Mouse’s.

Non-Stone Pot BiBimBap

The Mouse prefers the non-stone pot option. The vegetables stay crispy, but he does miss out on the crispy rice. Hee hee.

Soft Tofu Soup

Because The Cat was in the mood. Not too spicy, good for The Mouse.

Savory Steamed Egg Custard

Because why not. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

Forgot to hit “send”, again. Ugh!

“Busy” schedule Sunday. The Mouse and The Cat needed an “early” meal after the farmers market, couldn’t wait for the normal 11:00 time.

Neighborhood Korean restaurant that opens early.

Tofu Soup

The soup came to the table all red and still bubbling, The Mouse thought it looked a little angry. Hee hee.

The Mouse ordered two specials, he thought since the price was special, it would be smaller portions, he was wrong.

Kimchi Fried Rice


Loco Moco

The kimchi fried rice was really good, even The Cat liked it. The loco moco? Hamburger patty was cooked well, the gravy? A little weird. Maybe order again, but add gojujang sauce to the mix.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Just Pics

Breakfast, after the farmers market. Korean food. Still cool weather here.




The Cat’s. A little too much salted fish in the mix. Took half home for noodle stock.


The Mouse’s order, good taste, a little too “wet”, not enough char, reasonably priced, huge quantity.

Enjoy, Eat well.
