The Mouse has been wanting to try this place for years. Their porchetta sandwich is legendary. Last time he was there, The Mouse’s pocket money was kinda an issue.

This week, The Cat, on a business trip went first.

The Place


The Line


The Sandwich

With crispy skin bits.

The Meal

The Cat also got roasted potatoes and Brussels sprouts, roasted with the pan drippings.

The Cat said worth it. The Mouse will get there someday.

Enjoy. Eat well.

More like dinner with the relatives at the cuz’s house. Nothing pretentious, just good food.

Slow Roasted Brisket

The picture does not do it justice. Fall apart tender. The Cat thought it was pork and nommed.

Roasted Potatoes

More nom.

Brussels Sprouts with Bacon

Is it Brussels Sprouts or Brussel Sprouts, hmm.


The cookies were so good, The Cat took home a couple.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Brussels Sprouts

More vegetables The Cat brought home. The Brussels sprouts had seen better days. Took a bit of cleaning to get them into decent edible shape.

Brussels Sprouts Prep

Olive oil (more than just a splash), a couple of drops of liquid smoke, salt.

“Double baked” (or toaster ovened). Hee hee.

First 20 minutes at 375 degrees. Then, as The Cat is commuting, another 15 minutes at 475 degrees.

Toaster Ovened Brussels Sprouts

The Cat prefers the crispy ones. The Mouse gotta get a heavy duty blow torch, no dainty creme brulee torch. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Chef H decided to make dinner at home Monday. Invited his close friends, The Cat was included, The Mouse tagged along.

The Food


Caesar Salad

Alas, no additional anchovies on the side. Sigh. Hee hee.

Creamed Brussels Sprouts?


Braised Pork Shanks with Red Cabbage

Big nom!

Rabbit Ravioli

Ingredients prepared by Chef, ravioli “wrapped” by Miss M. Good job!

Chef also made mashed potatoes but the picture turned out “white rabbit in snow”.

The Mouse’s Plate

Huge nom!

Chef A, one of the guest, made dessert.

Pear Tart

Chef A also made chocolate macaroons. Best ever! But they were nommed before The Mouse got a picture. Hee hee.

Thanks Chef H and Miss M for the hospitality.

Enjoy. Eat well.
