“Client” lunch with Chef H.

Shrimp Bruschetta



So, The Cat and Chef H ordered a pork banh mi and a grilled Portobello sandwich. Server was kind enough to split the order onto two plates. No fuss. The Cat and Chef H got half an order of everything. Neat huh? Wait, where’s the Portobello sandwich?

Chocolate Cake

Chef H took the leftover cake home. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Hmm. Forgot to hit the send button again. Ugh! Apologies

The Cat is still office hunting. Part of the process is finding out eating places nearby, just being thorough. Hee hee.

At least one Chinese “take-out” and one restaurant. Then there’s Chinatown, walking distance.

The Cat can survive. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Old Menu :(

The Cat’s lunch with client.

Ever since The Cat returned from the French Quarter, she’s been jonesing for po’ boy sandwiches.

Planned on a “rich-boy” (Tempura Oysters & Shrimp, Pickles, Slaw, Yuzu Kosho Tartar), think “upscaled” “po’ boy”.

Client also wanted to try their crispy shrimp gyoza.

Turns out the online menu is old (at least two chefs ago), rich-boy no longer offered, and crispy shrimp gyoza for dinner only. Boo!

They “settled” with …

Chopped Salad

Bacon, Tomato, Avocado, Parmesan, Garlic Shrimp, Asian Goddess.

The Mouse didn’t taste, but kinda sad looking. Just my opinion.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Cauliflower

Golden Raisin, Pine Nuts, Balsamic. Dunno about the taste, The Cat didn’t say.

Win some lose some. At least update the menu. Sigh.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Grilled Chicken Sandwich – Deconstructed

Chicken went home for The Mouse’s dinner. 🙂

The Cat’s Ribs

Plated in the Manago Hotel style. Hee hee.

Half went home for The Cat’s future bento.

The Cat’s noodle bowl was an impromptu “throw everything into the pot” kinda deal.

Soba noodles, cucumber, wakame seaweed, Kaua‘i sea salt, and an imperfectly poached egg.

This week’s soup/bento protein.

Simmered overnight.
