Day-Off

The Cat gave The Mouse a kitchen break yesterday. Went to our favorite neighborhood chop suey joint for dinner (plus, our chives needed to be trimmed).

If you’ve read this blog for a while, you’ve probably seen most of these dishes, but it’s one of our go-to places (“so no can help). Heh heh.

Chives

Pork (Not Beef) Tomato

Requested less onions. Because The Cat’s digestion and onions don’t play well together. 😦

I know, the dish is more western than Chinese, but we like it. 🙂

Roast Pork with Water Spinach (Ong Choy)

Special only on Sundays.

Beef Chow Funn (Dry Style)

Beef Chow Funn (Dry Style)

Funny cat, likes this chow funn dish, but not the beef part. The Mouse eats most of the beef (not that I’m complaining). 🙂

Stuffed Duck

Weird dish. thought it was going to be more of a pot roast style, turns out more like soup/stew/jook/porridge/congee.

Stuffed Duck?

Stuffed Duck?

Turns out, one of the better renditions of stuffed duck (not as greasy, and The Cat loves soupy stuff). Stuffing included barley, chick peas, water chestnuts, and egg drop. A probable order again.

And one of the best things about eating from this chop suey joint (besides the staff knowing us?) Leftovers!!!

Enjoy. Eat well.

Nature’s Schedule

The chives in the pot were getting a bit unruly.

Time to head for …

For you know what …

Chive and Eggs

We also ordered …

Stir-Fried Watercress and Doufu

The last time, the doufu was the soft variety, this time we tried it with deep-fried doufu. Although this version was good, I prefer soft doufu for this dish.

Bitter Melon and Pork with Chinese Black Bean Sauce

Last but not least, bitter melon and pork with Chinese black bean sauce.

When the chives are ready, the chives are ready.

Enjoy.

Our chives were getting a little overgrown, so back to our favorite neighborhood Chinese restaurant, Kin Wah Chop Suey for eggs (omelette) with chives.

Plain Omelette with Chives

Our waitress this evening hadn’t seen the dish before so we let her try a sample. The restaurant atmosphere is that people on neighboring tables are not afraid of asking what everyone is eating. The people in the booth next to us asked us what the dish was. After explaining that we used chives grown in our plant pots at home, they said the dish looked good, so we let them try a sample too.

We also ordered string beans with chicken,

and steamed fish fillet with ginger and green onions.

No fried rice this time, white rice instead.

BTW, I’m looking for a photogenic tea cup to compliment tea and tea leaves.

Hope y’all had a good long holiday weekend.
