The Mouse had to pick-up his prescription near the airport. “Chinese-American” eats nearby. Throwback decades ago when Chinese food was “exotic”. Restauranteurs here would offer Chinese food, burgers and fries, and plate lunches to appeal to the masses. To The Mouse, this place is a rare-find relic to the past.

The Mouse’s original plan was won ton soup with vegetables and a burger. An accurate order would have been saimin and a burger (It’s a local thing), but The Mouse is a rebel. Hee hee.

But Saturday special noodles was cheaper. Remember, The Mouse is sometimes “pake”.

Crispy Gau Gee Mein

Gravy, not soup, gau gee, not won ton, fried not steamed. Same same, hee hee.

Before, at these Chinese-American places, cornstarch slurry is a constant friend. Same here.

To make a true “Chinese-American” experience, The Mouse also ordered.

Hamburger Delux

Everything for less than 10 bucks! Prices must be throwback too! Hee hee.

Not to leave The Cat out, The Mouse picked up half a roast duck for her dindin and bento protein.

Roast Duck

The Cat’s verdict? Not bad, Chinatown is better, but it’s decent. No complaints.

Enjoy. Eat well.

No, The Mouse is not shopping for a warehouse, shopping at a warehouse, ChefZone. Potluck at the office this coming Wednesday. The Mouse kinda got “voluntold” into a crock pot mushroom dish. Went to the warehouse for inspiration.

Probably gonna do a mix of mushrooms, starting with dried sliced shiitake.


One whole pound. Humungous. But, can always use. Thought about buying the whole dried mushrooms, but sliced is probably easier to handle.

Dark Soy Sauce

Essential for making “red cooked pork”, Hong Xiao Rou.

Pork Belly

Picked up at the grocery store the other day. 🙂

Local Honey

On sale/clearance. Nothing wrong with the honey. Warehouse is phasing out their retail services and focusing more on bulk wholesale. Booo! Ugh!

Oh well, at least picked up the honey at more than 50% discount. I guess we won’t be visiting the warehouse too often in the future. Sigh.

Lunch was at nearby Lagoon Chinese Restaurant.

Crispy Gau Gee

On the side. I guess enough customers requested the gau gee on the side so it doesn’t get soggy. Good call.

Choi Sum with Oyster Sauce

Not gourmet, but solid local Chinese fare (menu has local plate lunches and burgers too). Ultra retro.

Ate half of the vegetable, took the other half home for The Cat’s noodle soup bowl.

Enjoy. Eat well.

No, we are not wearing camouflage and growing shaggy face hair.

Since we were in the area, dinner at Asian Mix (The Cat’s favorite take-out place for Chinese roast duck).

The soup comes in a separate container so you can pour as little or a lot to your desire. Just in case you were wondering where the soup was.

Since we were there (The Cat eats here more than The Mouse), The Mouse ordered …

Happy Cat and Mouse. 🙂

Most of the pork went home (wee wee wee). For another day. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.
