Chicken Noodle Soup

Pho style, first time back at the neighborhood Vietnamese/Japanese restaurant since The Cat finished quarantine.

The Mouse wanted something lighter than the normal pho meat combination.

Chicken Pho

Hits the spot.

The Cat had her go-to oxtail soup.

Rainy day, both The Cat and The Mouse under the weather (literally and figuratively). Soup day. Trying a Mexican restaurant with a couple of soups on the menu.

Pozole Roja Soup

Pork and hominy soup, The Cat’s order.

The Mouse ordered Menudo soup which looked the same as The Cat’s soup (no pic) except with tripe instead of pork.

Rice and Beans

The Cat’s favorite.

Stay safe and well.

New-ish cafe/bistro in grocery store – Et Al (that’s the name of the eating place, go figure). The main dishes were alright, the appetizers were worth eating again.

Ludovico chicken liver mousse, strawberry
tomato jam, grilled sourdough.

The Mouse really liked the chicken liver. Good substitute for foie gras (The Mouse’s opinion). Definite order again, next time with more toast. Hee hee.

Little gem lettuces, smoked salmon,
pickled red onion, everything spice

The kitchen was kind enough to substitute the caper buttermilk dressing for a lemon vinaigrette. Another order again item.

Hawaiian clam chowder, ulu, smoked meat,
clams, grilled sourdough.

The Cat’s soup. Clams so fresh. The Cat liked.

Stay safe and well.

Chicken Feet Soup

The Mouse has been battling flu symptoms for the last couple of days. no postings, just sleeping.

Was able to make a pot of chicken feet soup for The Cat.


Chicken Feet, turnip, goji berries, aloe pulp, wakame, napa cabbage, xiao shing wine.

The Cat liked.

The Mouse is taking long naps, eating little. One benefit, he is losing a little weight, a good thing during the holiday season. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

Or hangover soup? An unplanned lunch stop. Mexican restaurant. The Mouse passed by several times, curious.


The Cat ordered carnitas plate.

Carnitas Plate

Server convinced The Mouse into trying the menudo soup, not the 70’s boy group. Hee hee.

Tripe Soup

The Mouse liked. A little on the spicy side but The Mouse could tolerate. Definite order again. Mmm.

Stay safe and well.
