The Mouse had a minor food hunt snafu over the weekend. Ended up buying a vegetable plate from the Korean take-out at the nearby shopping mall.

Vegetable Plate

Cucumber kimchi (very mild), rolled egg omelet, pickled seaweed, salted cabbage, braised potato (for The Cat’s bento). Mmm! A good detour.

Because The Mouse wanted a little starch, not too much.

SPAM Musubi

Not from 7-Eleven, from the local grocery store. Bonus, it was day-end priced. 🙂

Be safe and well.

Bits ‘n’ Pieces

The Cat’s lunch, Thanksgiving eve.

“Off the Rack Pork Chop”

“Topped with cranberry sauce, served with mixed vegetables, mashed potatoes, and gravy.” Looks like The Cat substituted rice for the mashed potatoes. She thinks better than turkey. 😉 Hee hee.

Banchan Lunch

The Mouse’s lunch. All vegetables, no rice. The Mouse was prepping his stomach for today. Hee hee.

Sweet Potatoes

The Mouse roasted. 🙂 The pic is pre-roasted. Can be eaten cold or warmed up. Easy snack.

Happy Thanksgiving, if you are so inclined.

Stay safe and well.

No, not the western concept of BBQ chicken, Korean style. Semantics.

Had not had this since leaving the old job. Full order instead of mini. Because The Mouse wanted more veggie sides.

BBQ Chicken Plate

Two scoops of rice (half went to The Cat’s bento), seaweed (partial to The Cat), cucumber kimchi (The Mouse ate), just spicy, not that deep fermented flavor (meh), choi sum (most to The Cat), and simmered potato (all to The Cat), The Mouse finished the chicken. Seasoned just right for The Mouse, salty, but not excessive, still can taste chicken. Hee hee.

Picked up from the local food group/chain, think local version of Panda Express.

The Box

The Mouse thinks the mascot may have been inspired by the mascot of the Olympics when it was held in South Korea?

Off to the farmers market.

Enjoy. Eat well.

And a little bit of that.

Korean grocery store, cold tables offering various prepared vegetables and foods, charging by the pound.

Been wanting to try a few things from the table but not exactly knowing what is what, always a bit hesitant. Saturday, put on my big mouse pants and gave a few things a shot (nothing too exotic).

The Mouse’s Saturday night dinner.

Kimbab, Rolled Egg Omelet, Prepared Choi Sum, Spicy Fried Tofu (two ways)

All from the Korean grocery store.

Still not up to trying the raw spicy crab and other unfamiliar offerings. One step at a time.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Beef and Tendon Soup

My lunch yesterday. Read about the Korean black noodle at Million Restaurant (626 Sheridan Street, Honolulu, Hawaii) as a lunch special. Topped with meatjun and kalbi.

See top selection. Sorry, picture’s a bit blurry. Taken from across the dining room.

Server tells me it’s spicy. I ask her how spicy. She responds (and this is very cute) “Korean spicy”. I’m kind of scared. Ask her if I can order mild. No. Sauce is already pre-made.

I order the beef and tendon soup instead. Server says definitely not spicy.

This was good. Not as good as I might make, but  good nonetheless. I didn’t feel enough bones were used to make the stock. On the plus side, the tendon was sliced very thinly (easy to handle and chew).

The bowl was huge, almost couldn’t finish, almost. Heh heh.

And of course, could not forget the banchan.

The Napa cabbage kimchi was a little too spicy for me (I’m not Korean). Everything else was excellent. My favorite was the savory custard (front middle). Soft, savory, smooth. Yum! Socks came off for that one.

Lunch included rice, no picture, didn’t want to bore you.

Enjoy. Eat well.
