Saimin! :)

Probably The Mouse’s favorite type of noodle, must be from small-kid hanabata time. A quick lunch woud be a package of S&S saimin.

The Mouse’s lunch. Started with a container of Okuhara saimin (the other small-kid hanabata days brand).

Frozen Saimin

The containers are deluxe, notice the slices of luncheon meat (dunno if SPAM), scrambled egg, green onion, and fish cake (kamaboko).

The Mouse further “accessorized” his bowl, more SPAM (roasted in the toaster oven), wakame, okra, mixed vegetables. Instead of the flavor packet, too much salt, The Mouse seasoned with a little salt, black pepper, and low sodium shoyu, that way he controlled the salt content.

The Mouse’s Saimin

Oh yeah, the SPAM was the “lite” version too, less fat and salt.

The Mouse had a happy lunch. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

The Cat had another errand on the west side of SPAM Land. Lunch at one of our “new” favorite locations. Mandalay Restaurant. They used to be downtown which was a hassle for The Mouse. They downsized and moved to the Kaimuki area. Accessible parking, less crowded. Yay!

Steamed Tripe
Eggplant (Mild)
Seafood Fried Noodles
Custard Tart

Appears that The Cat will be making semi regular errands in that area, The Mouse is looking forward to more visits. Mmm. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

Some of our recent take-outs. 🙂

From Chef P., dessert.

Tapioca Pudding with Berries

The Mouse thinks Chef made this for The Cat’s birthday (a couple of weeks ago), Chef forgot. The tapioca was more boba-ish (chewy) than tapioca (soft), but still appreciated.

Tamago, Inari, and Poke

The Mouse’s lunch yesterday, from the grocery store reduced section. Just stocked, totally worth it. Hee hee.

The Mouse went to the nearby mall to pick a card, decided to pick dinner at the food court, ramen shop ran out of rice (sigh), picked side dishes.

Pork Belly and Takana

Boiled a carrot, added wakame, angel hair pasta, topped with pork belly and takana (mustard cabbage cooked with sesame oil and a little shichimi togarashi (Japanese chili powder blend).

Bowl of Noodles (Pasta)

The Cat slurped.

Stay safe and well.

Not much happening food-wise.

The Cat’s bowl of noodles.

Bowl of Noodles

Super simple. Chicken bouillon, noodles, white stemmed cabbage, egg. The Mouse took the picture before basting the egg with the broth. More colorful. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

A revisit to Simply Sichuan.

Twice Cooked Pork

The main ingredient is pork belly. The pork is simmered until soft, then stir-fried with vegetables. The Mouse thought the pork should be crispy but The Cat’s brother said otherwise. If (and a big if), The Mouse attempt this dish, the pork will be crisped. 🙂

Spicy Eggplant on Fried Rice

A lunch special. Ordered mild. Quantity was ginormous, enough for three meals. 🙂

Stir-Fried Lotus Root

Nom.

The Cat also ordered a bowl of dan dan noodles (same as last week).

Stay safe and well.
