Posts Tagged ‘Eating Diary’

Eating over the weekend. Little Joe’s Steakhouse opened just before the shut-down from the thing that cannot be named. Their happy hour menu is pretty extensive and interesting.

First time trying, The Cat and The Mouse kinda over ordered.

Spicy Negi Toro

Minced tuna mixed with spicy sauce, over rice, toasted nori. Easier to chew. Hee hee. An order again item.

Avocado Toast

Toast, avocado, tomato. Okay.

Seafood Bisque
Grilled Asparagus

The Mouse thinks that in order to have the asparagus at a consistent length, some of the bottoms were not trimmed enough, The Cat had biting/chewing issues.

Steak Tips

Very tender meat, The Mouse’s favorite, The Cat didn’t mind the dish. Definite order again.

Fish Taco

Dish was okay.

Passion Fruit Crème Brûlée

Light and refreshing, there was a key lime vibe going.

When we return, if we don’t try other items on the menu, the spicy negi toro and the steak tips will be definite contenders. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

The Cat and The Mouse dropped off an envelope to a graduate, daughter of our favorite beef chip makers.

Favor

Since we were in the area, tried an old school diner.

The Place

Since 1947, gotta be good. Location (distance) and parking were barriers to The Cat and The Mouse trying sooner.

The ordered one of the chalkboard specials, furikake salmon.

Furikake Salmon, Wasabi Cream

The Mouse ordered hamburger steak.

Hamburger Steak, Grilled Onions, Mushroom Gravy

Mmm. Old school. The Mouse thinks there might have been a little filler in the hamburger (breadcrumbs?). The meat was very soft (in a good way).

Of course, The Mouse can’t visit an old school eatery without indulging in green river, when available.

Pink Lemonade, Green River

The Cat has approved a return, hopefully, next time, the inside dining will be open. The Mouse heard their saimin is good. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

The upper portion of the pork hock (the lower portion was cooked last week).

This time, after the hock was cooked, added about a third of a can of mushroom gravy.

Gravy

Pork hock, tree ear fungus, ginger, apple cider vinegar, gravy, no peanuts this time.

Pork Hock Soup/Stew

More soup than stew, The Mouse didn’t want to put in so much gravy to make the pot so thick but maybe not enough. That’s okay, with gravy, less is better. At least according to The Cat.

Also, to those that made the ultimate sacrifice … a heartfelt thank you.

Nothing epic, maybe weird, just The Mouse eats.

Honey Covered Banana

The Mouse wanted something sweet for breakfast. Too bad he doesn’t have a kitchen torch. Hee hee.

Chocolate Covered Mac Nuts

Afternoon snack. The Mouse buys only these candies in the individual two pack. One at a time. A whole box would be disastrous. 😉

Rice with Mushroom Gravy

Dinner. Small-kid time comfort food. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

The Cat’s:

Shrimp and Grits

Newly opened (still soft opening). The Cat said food was worth trying but service was slow (The Mouse guesses kinks should be worked out during soft opening).

The Mouse’s:

Fried SPAM and Shiso on Pita

The Mouse made. 🙂

Stay safe and well.
