Middle Eastern dish from a “French” bakery, owned by Vietnamese. Fusion? One of the accounting staff is heading to medical school. Controller bought lunch for the section. The Mouse wanted to try something different. Sometimes, be careful what you wish for.

Falafel Banh Mi

Falafel, Harissa Hummus, Firecracker Sauce, Pickled Carrot & Daikon, Avocado, Cucumber, Cilantro. To The Mouse, the pickled carrot and daikon and the falafel kinda clashed in flavor, once the vegetables were removed, and eaten separately, the sandwich was pretty good. The bread was really good (better be since it’s supposed to be a French bakery).

The Mouse could only eat half. the other half was eaten for dinner. By that time the falafel kinda got squishy. Became more of a bean spread than falafel. Not as appetizing. Hee hee.

“Nothing ventured, nothing gained.” 🙂

Stay safe and well.

Sunday brunch, before The Cat went into her office.

The Cat’s

Her usual. Norwegian salmon breakfast.

The Mouse’s

French toast, unusual for The Mouse to order a sweet breakfast, he was in the mood. 🙂

The Cat worked past dinner, The Mouse picked up a sandwich.

Ham and Pate Bahn Mi

This used to be The Mouse’s favorite, now the sandwich has to share popularity with the newly envisioned hummus, bacon, mushroom, spinach on sourdough and its variations. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Close-Up

The Cat’s brought home a mousie bag to sample. Very good sandwich and dipping sauce. Although a little pricey. But The Mouse guesses if you are eating at Mariposa, price is relative. Hee  hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.
