“Instant Noodles”

The Cat likes funn noodles. The Mouse picked up a package for The Cat’s dinner.

Funn Noodles

Made by the legendary Sun Noodles. The Cat has been working late, maybe this weekend. Instructions are for stir-fry but a quick dunk in broth works too.

The Cat wanted lighter bowls.

Instant Pho Package

Pho Noodles

Pork Belly Broth, Wakame, Pho Noodles

Half package. Once the noodles hit the hot broth cooks in about 30 seconds. Instant. 🙂

Be safe and well.

The Mouse’s favorite “instant” noodles.

Frozen Saimin

Okuhara frozen saimin (the other brand is S&S). The Mouse did not use the soup packet, too much salt, fried fishcake, pork sausage, wakame seaweed, dried parsley, chive, Szechuan pepper, and pinch of salt. Mmm!

Dinner was a “clearance” hunt.

Tuna Sandwich

Toss Salad, Family Size

The Mouse couldn’t resist, 75% off. The drawback is that salads tend to oxidize quickly. The Mouse had to eat and finish immediately. Think internal system cleaning. Hee hee. Still a deal, The Mouse would do it again. 🙂

Be safe and well.

More Instant Noodles

Try try on sale.

Package

The Mouse did not use the seasoning packets.

Instant Noodles

A splash of coconut vinegar and ponzu sauce, a sprinkle of dried parsley, paprika, sumac, and salt. Not bad, but the local frozen saimin is still tops.

Be safe and well.

Instant Noodles

The Mouse bought from the grocery store, cheap.

Package

The Mouse has not seen duck flavor noodles before, bought a couple of packages. The package contained seasonings.

Seasoning

Oil, seasoning, and chili powder. First time The Mouse used half of the seasoning powder and the oil, no chili powder. Taste slightly reminded The Mouse of plum sauce that goes on Chinese roast duck. Too salty for The Mouse.

The second package, The Mouse didn’t use the seasoning package, just the oil.

Instant Noodles

The texture of the noodles is a little like skinny egg noodles. The Mouse cooked the noodles for 3 minutes, drained the excess water, sprinkled the included package of oil, added dried chives, parsley, ginger, and Szechuan pepper powder. Better than the first time.

Still, The Mouse prefers small-kid time frozen saimin, S&S or Okuhara. Mmm!

Be safe and well.

The Mouse, late-night internet browsing, new-ish “noodle shop”, Fun Factory. The Cat’s stomach has been a little wonky lately. The Mouse thought this restaurant might be good to try and also be “safe” for The Cat’s stomach.

Rice Bowl

The Mouse had to try their signature dish, flying noodles.

Flying Noodles

Funn noodles suspended over spicy ground pork, corn, and shredded cucumber.

The illusion.

The Illusion

Metal pole with two holes at the top to fit the chopsticks, noodles draped over the chopsticks. Conversation starter for sure. The illusion reminds The Mouse of those floating human street performers. Good to try. 🙂

Another “novelty” series of dishes is the restaurant’s “rice buckets”.

The “Bucket”

The Cat ordered the pork rib option.

Pork Rib Rice Bucket

The pork was cooked through well, but because the pork was second cooked by deep-frying, the outside was a little tough for The Cat. The inside was tender and moist. The Mouse took the leftover ribs and sacrificed the crispy texture, steamed the ribs for an hour or so to soften them up for The Cat’s bento.

Julia Child’s philosophy, everything can be fixed. Hee hee.

The Cat wants to return to try their funn noodles in soup. The Mouse wants to return for their won ton. 🙂

Be safe and well.
