Anytime Cafe, posted previously, closing in about a week.

The Cat wanted to try their baked pork chop before you know. The dish was also kinda recommended by my urologist. I know, go figure. Hee hee.

Baked Pork Chop

Rice, pork chop, lots of cheese, side salad and cheesy garlic bread. Not bad, The Cat was glad to try.

The Mouse decided on a rice plate, noodles would be harder to doggy bag home.

Mixed Plate

Rice, “gravy”, tendon, pig feet, choi summ. Both meats well cooked, the tendon super soft, the pig feet easy to eat. A portion went home for The Cat’s bento. The pig feet bones made a broth for The Cat’s dinner.

We asked why the restaurant was closing, lease issue.

Fare thee well Anytime Cafe.

Be safe and well.

The Mouse, late-night internet browsing, new-ish “noodle shop”, Fun Factory. The Cat’s stomach has been a little wonky lately. The Mouse thought this restaurant might be good to try and also be “safe” for The Cat’s stomach.

Rice Bowl

The Mouse had to try their signature dish, flying noodles.

Flying Noodles

Funn noodles suspended over spicy ground pork, corn, and shredded cucumber.

The illusion.

The Illusion

Metal pole with two holes at the top to fit the chopsticks, noodles draped over the chopsticks. Conversation starter for sure. The illusion reminds The Mouse of those floating human street performers. Good to try. 🙂

Another “novelty” series of dishes is the restaurant’s “rice buckets”.

The “Bucket”

The Cat ordered the pork rib option.

Pork Rib Rice Bucket

The pork was cooked through well, but because the pork was second cooked by deep-frying, the outside was a little tough for The Cat. The inside was tender and moist. The Mouse took the leftover ribs and sacrificed the crispy texture, steamed the ribs for an hour or so to soften them up for The Cat’s bento.

Julia Child’s philosophy, everything can be fixed. Hee hee.

The Cat wants to return to try their funn noodles in soup. The Mouse wants to return for their won ton. 🙂

Be safe and well.

Adventurous Sunday, part I.

A few minutes before dinner reservations, nearby Filipino bakery.


It’s a significant step up, hence the many caution signs.

Fresh and warm Spanish rolls (and more). 🙂


Spanish rolls, Ube rolls, brownies, oatmeal cookie. Noms. 🙂

First time for The Cat eating a fresh and warm Spanish roll. Paws up.


Half of the menu Spanish cuisine, half of the menu Italian cuisine. SPAM Land does not have many Spanish restaurants, The Cat and The Mouse wanted to try. 🙂

Wall Decoration


Location used to be a bank, then a conveyor belt sushi restaurant, now a Spanish/Italian dining spot. Go figure.

Vault Door

The Mouse guesses vaults are hard to remove? Hee hee. Depending on the size, might be a great private dining room or speakeasy spot. Just saying. 🙂

More about the food next time. This post is just the teaser. 🙂

Be safe and well.

Beet Powder

The Mouse bought a container of beet powder from a “dress for less” store. Go figure. Hee hee.




Texture was a little powdery, not too offensive. Taste, a little earthy, little sweet. Funny, taste kinda reminded The Mouse of artificial strawberry powder for milk, except not so sweet.

Try try. Hee hee.

Be safe and well.

Fungus Salad?

The Mouse’s one bowl eats needed a vinegar component.

Cha Siu and Spinach over Rice

The Mouse was preparing wood-ear fungus for The Cat’s soup. After soaking, there was more than needed. The Mouse took some of the fungus, added salt and vinegar, and let is stand for a couple of minutes.

Fungus Salad?

The fungus provided acid and crunch elements. This might be one of The Mouse’s new favorite way to eat fungus. 🙂

Heading off to another doctor’s appointment. Just routine old folk check-up.

Stay safe and well.
