Test Test

The warehouse doesn’t have a test kitchen, officially, but … impromptu.

Test Test

One of the purchasing staff dabbles. Boned pork shank, kalbi sauce (both out of the warehouse), pressure cooker. The Mouse thought the texture was good but the sauce overpowered everything, too salty. Dilute with water or beer next time. Good try though. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

New place in Chinatown.

The Cat wanted to try.

Highpoints.

Kau Yuk with Taro

Pretty good.

But The Mouse really liked.

Tea Smoked Duck

Definitely would go back for the duck. Smoky, no fat (rendered during the smoking process?), tasty.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Cassava Experiment

Boiled (took way longer than expected).

Boiled Yuca Root

But because “raw” could be poisonous, The Mouse didn’t want to take any chances.

The Cat got the most of the root, packed in her bento boxes. Plain with just a little bit of salt.

I stir-fried a small batch for V with butter, garlic, salt, pepper.

Yuca with Garlic

The Mouse probably not working with Yuca too often, too hard to break down, but try try. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Where The Mouse has not gone before. Co-Worker V, same one that gave The Mouse the leftover spaghetti, mentioned she misses yuka root. She could not find it here in SPAM Land.

Challenge accepted. Hee hee.

One of the farmers markets.

Root

Yuka, cassava, tapioca. Same same.

Breaking the root down was definitely a challenge, thought would have to call Paul Bunyan for assistance.

To be continued.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Buns and Açaí

Since I was in the neighborhood …

Try try.

Sign

Mostly a bubble tea place, but, they also have açaí and bao buns on the menu.

Since The Mouse was doing take-out, went with the “manapua” buns instead of the regular open bao buns.

Buns

Char siu on the left, mushroom and vegetable on the right (they were out of miso steak 😦 ).

Bite Views

Both were okay, little too much onion for The Mouse’s taste. Plus, no one does “manapua” style buns like Char Hung Sut. Hee hee.

For dessert.

Açaí Bowl

Açaí, granola, papaya, mango, pineapple, coconut, local passion fruit drizzle.

Nice change from the “normal” mixed berry toppings.

In in the neighborhood again, maybe try the open bao buns, definitely another açaí bowl, maybe even a bubble tea. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.
