Oxtail Soup

The soup was “Chinese” style, Chinese five spice, star anise, dried mushrooms. Chinese style not The Cat’s favorite, but good try.

The Cat and The Mouse try someplace “new”. Mangiamo by 604. Mainly Italian cuisine. Restaurant advertised an all-you-can-eat soup and salad special. The Mouse couldn’t find what soups were available but decided to go for it. Background, The Cat likes the soup and salad all-you-can-eat at Olive Garden.

The choices were Italian salad, Caesar salad, zuppa toscana, and tomato basil. Both soups contain dairy. Sigh.

The Mouse was mindset on soup and salad. Plan B. The Mouse ordered a burger.

604 Burger

Well made, the fries were bomb, the burger was above decent.

The Cat went with the all-you-can-eat soup and salad.

Salad, Soup

The Cat tried both soup selections (zuppa toscana, tomato basil), while both were good, she preferred the zuppa toscana.

Dessert was tiramisu, recommended by the server.


The Mouse liked (after taking lactase enzyme pills), The Cat was more meh.

Be safe, eat good.
