Soup Day

Rainy day, both The Cat and The Mouse under the weather (literally and figuratively). Soup day. Trying a Mexican restaurant with a couple of soups on the menu.

Pozole Roja Soup

Pork and hominy soup, The Cat’s order.

The Mouse ordered Menudo soup which looked the same as The Cat’s soup (no pic) except with tripe instead of pork.

Rice and Beans

The Cat’s favorite.

Stay safe and well.

Or hangover soup? An unplanned lunch stop. Mexican restaurant. The Mouse passed by several times, curious.


The Cat ordered carnitas plate.

Carnitas Plate

Server convinced The Mouse into trying the menudo soup, not the 70’s boy group. Hee hee.

Tripe Soup

The Mouse liked. A little on the spicy side but The Mouse could tolerate. Definite order again. Mmm.

Stay safe and well.

Fiesta Bowls

The Mouse was in the mood for a Fiesta Bowl (rice, beans, meat, vegetables, salsa, etc.) from Chile Relleno, and maybe some music as well. Hee hee.

The Cat’s Bowl

Carnitas, fully loaded with cheese and ranch dressing on the side.

The Mouse’s Bowl

Chile Verde, sans any trace of dairy. 🙂

Fried Ice Cream

The Mouse had lactase pills. Totally worth it, no side effects. For The Mouse, the pills have limited effectiveness. Have to choose battles wisely. 🙂

Fiesta bowl, dunno if authentic but The Cat and The Mouse like, compared to Bibimbap or fried rice. Hee hee.

Forgot to take a picture of the guitar player we like so much.

Stay safe and well.

The Cat and The Mouse have not eaten food from Chile Relleno for over a year due to the thing that cannot be named. The Mouse checked and they finally reopened. Ordered take-out.

The Cat’s Bowl

Carnitas, Mexican rice, refried beans, edamame, olives, salsa, Romaine lettuce, and probably other ingredients that The Mouse missed. Think Mexican style mixed rice.

The Mouse’s Bowl

Chile verde (pork simmered in mild spicy tomatillo verde sauce), all other ingredients as above. Mmm.

Because it was take-out, the Romaine lettuce wilted just a bit, The Mouse did not mind. More than enough food for The Cat and The Mouse to pack weekday lunch. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

According to The Cat, yesterday was take The Mouse to work day. The Cat has been having a little bit of minion issues. The Mouse volunteered to lend a small paw.

Nearby is a small take-out “taco stand” The Mouse yelped and wanted to try.


A kiosk near Aloha Tower. Owner/Chef super friendly. Started the business when his kids missed authentic Mexican cuisine, they’re originally from southern Mexico. Asked him to recommend his best for a newbie. The taco plate.

Three Taco Plate

One pork, one chicken chipotle, one carne asada. mixed greens and a small dessert. All for a tenner. Deal! 🙂 all three were really flavorful but if The Mouse were to choose, it would be chicken (because of the heat), pork, then carne asada.

Also picked up a burrito plate for The Cat’s dinner. no picture, a foil bundle, but also included the mixed greens and dessert. And two horchata made with almond milk option.

The Mouse will definitely be back. Chef is recommending his molletes plate next. The Mouse can’t wait. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.
