New Year’s Eve Eats

First to Nordstrom to pick up tomato soup, one of The Cat’s elderly client took a spill over the holidays and mobility was challenging. Since we were there … lunch!  🙂

Tomato Basil Bisque

The Cat had a bowl of soup too.

Lentil and Sausage Soup

The Mouse had a cup.

Brussel Sprouts with Pancetta


Tofu Salad

The Cat’s usual.

Chicken Club Sandwich

The Mouse’s. Sandwich came with either side salad or fries. The Mouse really wanted fries, but deferred to the salad. Sigh.

Early dinner at the neighborhood cafe.

More Soup

This time, minestrone.

The Cat’s Pasta

Arriabata penne with shrimp. Requested mild.

The Mouse’s Pork Piccata

Butter, lemon, capers. Mmm!

In bed before midnight, no champagne. Hibernating. Hee hee.

Heading out for Chinese, with The Cat’s old relative.

Blessing to you and your for a happy, healthy, and hopeful new year!

Enjoy. Eat well.

Epic Lunch Sequel

The eve before Christmas Eve. The Mouse got realigned, Did an errand for The Cat (picked up a box of chocolate dipped ginger for one of her clients). Had lunch.

But first, since The Mouse was at the store (buying the box of ginger chocolate) …

Chocolate Covered Oreo

A little treat for The Mouse. These are sweet. Can’t eat more than one or two a year.

Okay, on to lunch. I know, yum cha is supposed to be a communal eating event, and for most of the time, The Mouse agrees. But once in a while, it’s good to fly solo.

The Place

Just a few weeks ago the place was Good Fortune, oh well.

Not much change, food seemed the same.

Shrimp Dumplings
Pork, Mushroom, and Peanut Dumpling


Salted Pork and Preserved Egg Congee (Jook)


Spinach and Scallop Dumpling


The “Cha” part of “Yum Cha” 🙂

The Mouse usually can’t leave a dim sum meal without …

Egg Custard Tart

If The Mouse ever gets to Macao or Portugal, you know what he’s eating first. Hee hee.

After that, The Mouse went home to hibernate.

On a side note, The Mouse can’t leave an izakaya without ordering dashimaki tamago. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Epic Lunch

Opps! Forgot to hit the publish button. Face palm!

Although campus closed half day yesterday, The Mouse did too much running around, mostly sitting in traffic. Bleh.

Late lunch. Ruby Tuesday. Meatloaf special.

With salad bar.

The Mouse’s Salad

All his favorite, broccoli, salsa, cucumber, corn, mushroom, and bacon of course. 🙂

Then the centerpiece of the lunch.


With a naked baked potato.

Meatloaf, one of The Mouse’s favorite comfort foods. Just don’t get to have it too often.

This version was heated in a cast iron skillet resulting in a lot of kogi bits. Yay! Brown gravy was perfect. The Mouse added a little accouterment to the potato.

Bacon from the salad bar

Jus’ because. Hee hee.


Also from the salad bar. ‘Cuz in The Mouse’s opinion ‘shrooms and beef (and gravy) match made in heaven. Hee hee.

Ended the epic lunch with some fruit, still from the salad bar.

Okay, back to last chance holiday shopping.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Sunday Lunch

For reasons too long to explain (let’s just say Christmas time kinda gets hectic), ended up eating here.


Old school neighborhood eatery.

The Mouse tried once before, first time for The Cat.



More Interior

Fans and umbrellas everywhere.

Although not as old, kinda reminded The Cat of Manago Hotel on big island.

The Cat’s Order

Miso butterfish and tempura combo.

The Mouse’s Order

Pork Tofu and tempura combo.

The Cat and The Mouse both agree tempura is their specialty.

Enjoy. Eat well,

The Mouse
