Not really in need of fruits and vegetables, just walking around.


From the vendor we usually buy bananas and papayas from.


Simple, cut in half, spoon out contents.

Chinatown Eats

Last Saturday. Smith and Kings. A play on their location. One of the “new” businesses revitalizing the neighborhood. Intrigued by their brunch burger.

Brunch Burger

Bacon Jam, Mixed Greens, Cheddar, Truffle Aioli, Sunny Egg, Deep Fried French Toast Bun. Breakfast Potatoes, or House Grits.

Not bad, Half sock off maybe? Too many things going on. Bacon jam was more like crumbled bacon than jam. But good to try.

Also tried a side of roasted pork belly.

Roasted Pork Belly

Now, you may ask why, when Nam Fong (famous for their Chinese roast pork) is but a few steps away, would The Mouse want to order pork belly? Try try.

The verdict on the pork belly. It’s not Chinese roast pork, but, a very very good attempt at treating pork belly as it should be cooked. Well prepared. The Mouse would definitely order again.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Ordered an additional side order to pack into The Cat’s bento this week. The Manago Hotel plating style again. Hee hee.

Just add rice, sauteed cabbage, mushroom gravy. Tah dah!

For The Cat’s bento this week.

Boneless Pork Chops

Cooks faster and easier than pork belly. Cheaper too.


The Cat helped to cut the chops up. Even easier to handle.

Browned, simmered in mushroom gravy, mushrooms, apple cider vinegar, sake, salt and pepper to taste.

Pork Chops and Mushroom Gravy

Not as tender, nor “fatty” as pork belly, but works. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.
