Another unexpected late night for The Cat.

The Mouse got Chinese take-out from the neighborhood chop suey.

Chinese Take-Out

Mongolian beef

Pork with bitter melon


The Mouse must say for “commercial” jai, this batch was really good. Okay, not as good as Aunty M’s jai, which took days of prep and precise methods, but for time saving, worth it.

Enough food for dinner and two-and-a-half lunch bentos. Good deal.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Chinese eats at favorite neighborhood chop suey “palace”.

Egg Drop Soup

The Mouse could make at home, but good to have someones else cook, temporarily.

Stir-Fried Bitter Melon

Always a favorite vegetable. If The Mouse gets ambitious down the road, maybe stuffed bitter melon?

Pot Roast Pork with Gravy

OMG! One of the best pork dishes in recent memory, full of flavor, and tender to the core! Repeat for sure!

Steamed Buns

The Cat’s favorite, up there with rice.

Steamed Buns, Pot Roast Pork, Perfect Combo

And a little sweet ending for The Mouse.

Fortune Cookie, Almond Cookie

The food? Enough for dinner, dinner the next night, and two bento for The Cat, one bento for The Mouse. Good deal!

Enjoy. Eat well.

This week’s soup bones.

Pork Bones

Not sure which bones these are, not leg bones, not ribs, possibly neck. Not too much marrow. Cooked a shorter time than the feet, took out the bones and shredded the meat.

Soup Meat

The Mouse not decided what to do with the meat yet.

Bitter Melon

Farmers market. May go into the shredded pork meat soup, maybe not. Dunno.

Potato and Butterfish

Leftover banchan from The Mouse’s lunch, small piece of miso butterfish from the grocery store. Super easy, toaster oven 10 to 12 minutes.

Enjoy. Eat well.

A rush to the farmers market after work. A nice bunch of watercress.


Reasonably priced, nice and fresh (picture does not do it justice).

Part of the “everything but the kitchen sink soup” for The Cat.

“Vegetable” Soup

The watercress (of course), eggplant, okra, bitter melon, green beans, one piece of shoyu pork, pumpkin, and an egg.

The Cat slurped.

Emjoy. Eat well.

Passed by this place for decades.


Only tried it a couple of months ago (cash only), take-out roast duck. Not bad, it is what it is, Chinese fast food in a “strip” mall.

Last night, instead of cooking.

Take-Out Din Din

Fried rice, jai, and stuffed bitter melon. Very decent. Sorta “authentic” in a “chop suey” kinda way. Hee hee.

Dinner with the cuzs tonight. Wagyu burger, here we come.

Enjoy. Eat well.
