The Mouse finally got to try Egghead Cafe. Used to be located where parking was an issue. Moved near the warehouse. Made a Costco run yesterday (the warehouse is currently located really close to Costco). The Mouse picked up late “brunch” after.

Avocado Toast

Avo corn toast: avocado corn spread, basil aioli, paprika, added soft scrambled egg.

Dish was good, The Mouse would have preferred a more aggressive seasoning, maybe some chili flake? The corn did not excite The Mouse.

Porky Bowl

Rice, braised pork belly, fried egg (crispy), and pickled vegetables. The Mouse liked this one. A little dash of ponzu at home, and yum.

A good try try.

Stay safe and well.

The Mouse’s.

Kalua Pork Sandwich

No BBQ sauce, ever. Kinda messes with the flavor of the kalua pork (just The Mouse’s opinion).

However, now, The Mouse is okay with a couple of drops of ponzu sauce on the sandwich, just to give the taste a hint of vinegar/acid. Nom!

Stay safe and well.

Subtitle: Candle Time.

Newly discovered restaurant for The Cat and The Mouse. Basalt. So far, excellent service (telephone and curbside), good, honest food.

Miso Black Cod

Steamed white rice, vegetable medley, dashi nage. Vegetables were mushrooms and Shanghai cabbage. The Cat liked.

Pork Belly Buns

Charcoal bao buns, pickled vegetables, hoisin sriracha sauce. The Mouse liked. The pickled vegetables (bahn mi like) were killer.

Guava Lilikoi Layered Cake

Vanilla sponge cake, guava lilikoi mousse, raspberry sauce, mixed berries. Luckily The Mouse had a package of candles in the junk drawer. 🙂

When things settle back to “normal”, The Cat and The Mouse want to try a sit-down at the place. Nom!

Stay safe and well.

Thick cut pork belly.

Pork Belly

Cut into lardon pieces, browned, braised in water, apple cider vinegar, liquid smoke, added white stem cabbage stems, another braise, and finally the cabbage tops, quick braise. Salt, pepper, monk fruit sugar, dash of shoyu, and a drop of orange extract.


Not the normal quick stir-fry The Mouse usually does with vegetables, a softer, deeper flavor. The Cat liked. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

The Mouse was still jonesing for a good pork meal after the tiny crispy pork “experience” (misadventure? mistranslation?). Had to quick stop at the warehouse yesterday, and since The Mouse was in the area …

Picked-up lunch from Meg’s Drive In, one of the few places that still serves Green River regularly. 🙂

Roast Pork Plate Lunch

With mac salad and gravy! Mmm, tender pork, bits of fat, and an added bonus, stufffing! Nom!

Green River

Perfect meal, The Mouse was full and satiated.


Stay safe and well.
