And The Cat is on a business trip …




Minced Beef and Fried Egg over Rice

Egg could’ve been a little runnier, but okay.

Chili Sauce

Not overly spicy, fresh, not fermented.

Blanched Lettuce

Veggies! Hee hee.

Red Bean Soup

Not too sweet, fiber. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Sunday Dinner

The Cat’s schedule was kinda “modified” Sunday. Instead of lunch at Ruby Tuesday, it was dinner.

Salad Bar Salad

Same same.

But, instead of the regular burger, The Mouse ordered …

Flatiron Steak, Baked Potato

Medium rare. 🙂

Because The Mouse chose salad bar as one of his sides, plating was in the Manago Hotel style. Hee hee.

The Cat ordered …

Chicken Stacker

Chicken breast, grilled and layered with roasted baby bella mushrooms, strips of crispy bacon, Parmesan cream sauce, and shaved Asiago cheese.

Again, because one of the sides is salad bar, Manago Hotel plating.

The Mouse got the bacon. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Japanese Rye Bread

Try try.

The Foundation

Japanese rye bread, Korean multi-grain puff, Minion food. Hee hee.

Add Supporting Cast

Yellow mustard, whole grain mustard, and Dijon mustard on the rye bread, Vegemite on the multi-grain puff.

Add Main Characters

Open-faced ham and egg sandwich on rye bread with Picnics from the Vine, avocado “toast” on multi-grain puff, and Minion food.


Enjoy. Eat well.

Don’t walk under any ladders or cross paths with black cats today. Hee hee.

Yesterday was the first day The Cat could sleep in (need to recover from a brutal tax season). Impromptu “hunt” for food. First choice was a 2 hour wait. Nope.

The Cat has always wanted to return to Baci Bistro. Took a chance. One hour wait, unless we were willing to sit at the bar. Go for it.

Sat right in front of the cold prep station (think sitting at the sushi bar).



Bar, Cold Prep, Kitchen

Super tiny space. One of the chef was even gracious to provide shaka. Hee hee.


The Mouse thinks one of the better ones he has had in a while.

The Cat’s Risotto con Gamberetti e Piselli

Think Italian jook with shrimp and peas and cream and cheese. The Cat liked.

The Mouse’s Bucatini alla Puttanesca

With extra sauce (The Mouse is a product of public education). Hee hee.

Rustic, earthy, spicy, packed with umami (think Italian Ma Po Tofu, kinda). And the myth behind the recipe is interesting as well.

Yelp had a picture of Key Lime Pie. Wasn’t a dessert selection last night. The Cat sighs.

Chocolate Decadence Cake

The dense part they got right, tasted flourless to The Mouse.

Next time we go back, either make reservations, go earlier, or sit at the bar again. The Mouse wouldn’t mind sitting at the bar again, free kitchen and prep show. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Unexpected late night for The Cat. The Mouse was prepping The Cat’s egg drop soup. Since The Cat ate at the office, The Mouse had to use the eggs in another way.

Scrambled Eggs

Simple, salt and pepper, and a splash of honey whiskey.

Veggie “Deli Slices”

Square bread, butter, veggie deli slice, scrambled eggs.

The Mouse’s Din Din

Okay, so not really an egg benedict, but the components (except for the Hollandaise sauce) were kinda there? Whatever the case, The Mouse ate. 🙂

Too bad Chef H’s chili was pau. Would’ve made a great topper to the mess. Hee hee.

The leftover eggs are for The Cat’s lunch today, she’s sleeping in (tax season recovery).

Enjoy. Eat well.
