The Mouse bought.

Vegan butter. Coconut oil based.

The Mouse tried it.

Vegan butter on pita.

Hmm. Not quite butter, The Mouse is not used to the taste and mouth feel, definitely coconut, not butter.

Its okay, not super thrilled. Oh well, try try.

Stay safe and well.

The Mouse

BTW, if this post looks funny, WordPress doesn’t seem to allow me to edit in classic mode anymore, The Mouse really dislikes the changed format. Ugh! “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix!” At least before The Mouse could choose the mode. 😦

The Mouse bought a package of high fiber tortilla wrap, each wrap has close to 50% of daily recommended fiber, TMI? High-fiber, low-carb, gluten-free. All the hyphenated buzz words. Hee hee.

The Mouse wrapped leftovers.


Grilled chicken, roasted sweet potato, smoked salmon. Threw it in the toaster oven.

The Mouse’s Dinner

The hodgepodge of ingredients mixed surprisingly well. Honestly, The Mouse thought the sweet potato wouldn’t play well, but it did, kinda like avocado in texture. Although an avocado would be appreciated too, along with maybe a nice and light miso sauce. 😉

Well, The Mouse has a whole package to experiment with. May or may not (probably not, TMI) write about the high-fiber results. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

The Cat wanted to start the new year with good eats. This restaurant was supposed to be a “long-term” pop-up that turned into an extended open-end venture. Confused? Hee hee.


The Cat’s

Baked Shrimp “A La Escargot”

Cafe de Paris butter. The Cat liked. The Mouse wished it was served with a bowl of rice, a little shoyu, and a fried egg to use all of the butter. Hee hee.

The Mouse’s

Beef Tartare

With crispy baguette. The Mouse liked.


Red & Green Salad

Roasted pear, Gorgonzola, aged Balsamic vinaigrette. The Mouse’s was Gorgonzola


The Cat’s

Scallops Risotto

Hamakua mushroom, “Vialone Nano Rice”, Parmesan Cream. the Cat thought slightly salty, took half home to mix with regular rice.

The Mouse’s


Falafel, hummus, smoked eggplant, lettuce leaves, pickled vegetables. The Mouse liked.


The Cat’s

Mango Kulfi

Gastronault yogurt, pistachio, 24K gold. The Cat liked.

There was no dessert for The Mouse that was dairy sensitive friendly, he ended up with two chocolate chip cookies.

Stay safe and well.

Crab Paste Try

From the warehouse “clearance” shelf, stuff that cannot be sold to customers, still good to use.


Ingredients indicated that the paste shouldn’t be too spicy.

At first, The Mouse was going to scramble eggs, but The Cat came home too late. So, The Mouse improvised.


Hee hee, scrambled eggs with crab paste.

The Mouse made jook with leftover rice and chicken broth. When The Cat was ready, brought the jook up to just starting to boil temperature, poured (not drop) the egg mixture in, turned off the heat, and let the pot sit for a minute or so.

Chicken Broth Jook with Crab Paste Egg Pour

Crushed peanut and parsley garnish.

The Cat liked.

Stay safe and well.
