Posts Tagged ‘B-Day’

Okay, finally got all (I think all) of the pictures. Since it’s a perceived milestone birthday (for Aunty M), The Cat wanted to go to someplace different (and maybe special).  Lunch reservations at Yauatcha Waikiki, specializing in dim sum and tea.

Now, this ain’t your typical Chop Suey joint, think fusion between a higher-end dim sum establishment and a European night club.

Condiment Set-up

Chili oil, chili paste with anchovies (or could be dried shrimp, XO sauce?) pickled cucumber (these knocked The Mouse’s sock off), and soy sauce.

Jasmine Tea

Very nicely fragranced (perfumed?).

Har Gau (Shrimp Dumplings)

 

Bamboo Dumpling

 

Crab and Kalo (Taro) Croquette

 

Prawn and Crispy Beancurd Cheung Funn

 

Roast Duck Pumpkin Puff

 

Pak Choi with Ginger

Another winner! Definitely order again. Perfectly cooked and seasoned.

Of course, birthday meal, have to have noodles.

Three Mushrooms Hand Pulled Noodle

Another dish The Mouse would be happy to order again.

Raspberry Delice

Raspberry, Manjari chocolate, lychee. Presentation and taste. Nom!

Rich and decadent. Perfect for b-day.

Complimentary Dessert

Matcha green tea, lavender vanilla, and I forgot the last flavor. Aunty M was full.

Wrapped up for later

Aunty M, you da bestest. Happy b-day!

Enjoy. Eat well.

Later this year, it will be Aunt Mʻs (not to be confused with Aunty Em) ninetieth b-day. A lot of the family will be scattered near the actual date. Decided to have a “pre-celebration” surprise.

Lunch at Jade Dynasty in the mall.

Seafood Seaweed Rolls

 

Taro Puff

I think the relatives ordered what they thought are Aunt Mʻs “favorites”.

 

Honey Walnut Shrimp

 

“Spicy” Eggplant with Tofu

 

Steamed Fish

With head and tail intact.

Braised E-Min

And of course.

Cake

Baked by one of the younger relatives.

Malasadas

Contributed by another relative.

Since The Cat and The Mouse will be in town on Aunt Mʻs birthdate, weʻll take her out for another mini-celebration.

Enjoy. Eat well.
