Posts Tagged ‘Char siu’

The Mouse, running errands yesterday, forgot it’s the start of an extended weekend. Traffic terrible. Ugh!

The lunch I wanted would probably not be reachable with the traffic. Settled for a Chinese take-out underneath a Safeway supermarket.

Roast Duck and Char Siu on Rice with Choi Sum

Half of the rice and all of the duck and greens went to The Cat’s bento for next week (freezer) and her soup last night.

The Mouse finished the rest of the rice and all of the char siu (it was late afternoon by the time The Mouse ate). Because The Mouse was hungry, he also ordered an order of crispy gau gee.

Crispy Gau Gee

One of the errands was to drop something off to Chef. He gave us a pan of the staff meal he prepared.

Baked Meat Pasta, Loaf of Bread

The Mouse thinks Chef used shortrib for the meat. Mmm!

And to be complete, The Cat’s lunch.

Seafood Pasta

The Cat said there was more seafood than pasta (a good thing).

Stay safe and well.

The Mouse had another doctor’s appointment yesterday. Since he was in town, The Cat sent him on an errand. By the time The Mouse was finished, it was lunch time. Between lunch hour traffic, one way streets, and construction, The Mouse couldn’t get to a few places to take-out. Finally landed at Asian Mix, picked up a roast duck and char siu on rice plate.

Roast Duck, Char Siu, Rice, Choi Sum

Huge portion, reasonably priced. The Mouse barely ate a quarter. Half of the duck, about half of the rice, and a lot of the choi sum went into The Cat’s bento for the next day. Half of the duck and a few stalks of choi sum went to The Cat’s dinner noodle bowl.

Noodle Bowl

Along with spaghetti pasta and canned bamboo shoots.

Another quarter of the rice portion and the remaining char siu is for The Mouse’s lunch today. 🙂

Priced out, each portion comes to three dollars and change. Not bad, “cheap eats”.

Stay safe and well.

So a week ago was mooncake day? Both The Cat and The Mouse were too busy. Plus hard to go to Chinatown.

The Mouse picked up some take-out yesterday. In The Mouse’s mind, worthy substitutes, Hee hee.

Fried Mochi Balls

Two bite sized. Perfect. No, The Mouse did not eat them all in one sitting. Warms up great in the toaster oven. The Cat is refraining, still on antibiotics.

Of course, The Mouse made a meal. Hee hee again.

Rice Cake, Char Siu Manapua

One last “must have”, according to The Mouse. 🙂

Roast Pork and Char Siu

Enough for a couple of days. Nom!

Stay safe and well.

A visit AFTER doctor appointment.

The Place

The Mouse brought his own container. For small orders, take-out is wax paper bag, sometimes resulting in squished food on the way home.

1 Manapua (Char Siu Bao) 3 Pork Siu Mai

Paired with more char siu from the nearby grocery store (apparently, on of the managers used to work as a chef).

Char Siu

The Mouse seriously nommed. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Lately, for some reason, The Mouse has difficulty finding lunch on Saturdays. Yesterday was no exception. He couldn’t change lanes fast enough to reach a Japanese musubi and curry shop, the nearby golf course restaurant was closed for a private event. Ugh! The Mouse made his way here.

Front

The Mouse has been here before, a little out of the way for him, not as far as the other side of the mountain, but still, next town over.

Char Siu and Roast Duck on Rice

One of their lunch specials. good taste, good quantity, fair price. The Mouse took home half.

Also ordered a lunch plate for take-out, bento prep.

Lunch Plate

Beef with vegetables, cold ginger chicken, pot roast pork, rice, crispy wonton.

Two plates, four decent meals. Good deal.

Too bad the place is not closer. Maybe just takes a little more effort, and gas, on The Mouse’s part.

Heading out to the farmers market then brunch with doctor friend at Chef H’s restaurant. More exciting and expensive pics to come.

Enjoy. Eat well.
