Archive for the ‘Pupu’ Category

The first was The Cat’s, the second was The Mouse’s.

The Cat took her staff to “celebrate” surviving tax season, 100 Sails to take advantage of the half-off happy hour.

Prime Rib?

The Mouse got some leftovers (mousie bag).

Christmas Preview

The Cat wanted to purchase a gift certificate for one of her clients. Since we were in the neighborhood, thought we’d try this place for happy hour.

The Place

Kinda looks like a gyotaku.

Part of the group that includes Yauatcha.

Interior

.

Kitchen Staging Area

Dunno why but the place gave off a kinda steampunk-ish vibe, at least to The Mouse anyway.

What we came for

We ordered eight.

Oysters!

Nom!

And since we were there …

The Cat had a glass.

Red

And some pupus.

Mussels with Flat Bread

Tikka sauce, sooooo messy, but tasty.

Hanger Steak

.

Brussels and Pecans

The Mouse’s plan was to taste here then head downstairs for a bowl of ramen. We never made it to the ramen. Too full.

We have reservations for Christmas eve dinner here. 🙂

But reservations are too late to make happy hour. 😦

Oh well, maybe next time.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Saturday lunch with the cuz’s P&B.

Sweet Home Glad

Sweet Home Glad

Apparently there was some confusion last time between Sweet Home Aunty (where we ended up last time) and Sweet Home Glad. Why? Dunno.

Went the Chinese “tapas” route. Wait, isn’t that “dim sum”. “A rose …” Shakespeare. 🙂

If I could, just a big bowl of steamed rice with the ginger onion sauce, but can’t, rice on the side, ginger onion sauce, and soup. Next best thing.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Dunno what everything else is but I see a duck bao bun (no mousie bag, sigh).

Desserts

The Mouse grabbed “convenience” food on the way home.

Mouse "Take-Out"

Mouse “Take-Out”

Tuna sandwich, SPAM musubi (sandwich style), and Mexican Coke, cane sugar, not high fructose corn syrup, (first soda this year, I think). Cheap eats surf and turf. Hee hee.

Possible hot-pot dinner tonight. Stay tuned.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Cucumbers

Sriracha Mayo

Sriracha Mayo

Cannot take credit as an original idea. Came from a blog that since disappeared.

Funny, co-worker also made this for her boyfriend who wouldn’t touch her’s but gobbled mine. The reason? Her’s didn’t have the sriracha mayo for dipping. Sometimes, it’s the little added touch (just sayin). 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.
