Posts Tagged ‘Beef tongue’

Weather in SPAM Land still relatively chilly, keyword relatively. The Mouse needed comfort food.

A little bit leftover, a little canned food, and a little home cooked.

The Mouse’s Plate

Soft scrambled eggs, canned spinach, leftover beef tongue (from the other night). The Mouse decided that the plate needed a little something else. Gravy!

Packaged, not scratch, still filled the spot.

The Mouse’s Tray

Pickled okra, cucumber kimchi, packaged jook with red beans, the above plate with gravy. Mmm Nom!

The combination of tongue and spinach from the night before, and spinach and eggs (like Eggs Florentine, The Mouse style), and gravy all over? A mash-up security blanket. Hee hee.

The Mouse had decided that spinach with gravy is his new favorite spinach prep. 🙂

Yay, the weekend!

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Mouse’s favorite cuts of beef, the tail, and the tongue.

Browsing on Yelp, came across pictures of beef tongue only on Wednesday special at old school “cafe”. The Mouse obsessed for a couple of weeks.

A small detour on The Mouse’s commuting route. Not too far.

Finally decided to take the plunge.

The Place

Even the menu cover has an old school feel, too bad the prices are not the same. Sigh.

Oh well, forging ahead.

Salad

Super old school. Iceburg lettuce. Takes The Mouse back to eateries like The Wisteria, Colombia Inn, and Flamingo Restaurant, all gone now. Sigh.

Beef Tongue on Spinach

Cooked a very long time, fork tender, The Mouse thinks canned spinach, but no matter, old school vibe. Both socks off. Nom!

For dessert

Peach Pie

Again, The Mouse thinks canned peaches, not canned peach pie filling, but canned peaches. That’s okay, kept to the old school vibe.

Check put a slight dent in the wallet, but a small indulgence. The Mouse was happy. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Not exactly eaten on the street, more like what I imagine “street” food to be.

An unusual Friday. No clue what lunch is to be. Headed toward Rainbow Drive-In but got distracted. Ended up here.

Lunch special, “Shanghai” style won ton in soup. Uhm okay, try try.

I guess the filing made it “Shanghai”?

Pretty tasty, a touch of sesame oil. Yum.

Didn’t read the description fully, only won ton and greens in the soup, no noodles. Sigh.

Ordered a side of steamed buns.

Steamed Buns

Steamed Buns

Soft, pillow-y, slightly sweet, no fiber whatsoever. Hee hee. Used to like ’em with condensed milk but alas, old age has caught up with The Mouse (lactose issues). Sorry TMI.

While waiting for The Cat to carpool, had a little snacky at Shirokiya Japan Walk.

Plastic cherry blossoms and lanterns hanging from the ceiling. Guess it’s supposed to evoke a market atmosphere.

Grilled sticks! Yay!

Cute ya?

Chicken Gizzard, Chicken Heart, Ox Tongue

Chicken Gizzard, Chicken Heart, Ox Tongue

The hearts and tongue were awesome, the gizzzard, not so much. Too chewy (even for gizzard). Good to try though.

No seating inside, took the skewers to an outside bench facing the parking lot. “Street” eats. 🙂

Definitely going back for the tongue and hearts. Too bad I didn’t have the steamed buns then. Hee hee!

Enjoy. Eat well.

I had a little bit of pork belly and a little bit of beef tongue in the freezer. I thought I combine two of my favorite into one dish. Both were partially cooked, which I think helped to keep the individuality of the two ingredients. Cut both the pork belly and the beef tongue into even sized pieces.

Pork Belly and Beef Tongue

Pork Belly and Beef Tongue

Added reconstituted dried mushrooms and a soy sauce based sauce (ginger, dark soy, light soy, sugar, dried lemon peel).

"Frankenstein"

“Frankenstein”

Steamed for about an hour.

Not pretty, but tasty.

This is what The Cat thought about my “experiment”.

Good to the last  drop. 🙂
