“Poke” Another Way

Over the weekend, tried something “new-ish” at the mall.

Storefront

Poke, made-to-order. Uhm okay, try try.

Pick a base, a protein, a sauce, and various accouterments to your taste.

I went with a small salad, salmon, wasabi, tobiko roe, furikake, and avocado.

The Mouse’s “Box”

On the plus side, everything is “fresh”. On the down side, everything is “fresh”. The flavors did not get a chance to combine and meld.

Sorry, I think I prefer the fresh made daily, pre-mixed poke style, but to each their own. Try try.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Cat wanted noodles today. Neighborhood chop suey.

The Cat ordered.

Wor Won Ton Soup Funn

The Mouse ordered.

Soft Won Ton Mein with Gravy

We also ordered

 

Kau Yuk

And

Stir-Fried Bitter Melon with Fermented Black Beans

You’re probably thinking too much food? You would be right.

Most of the kau yuk, bitter melon, and some of the look funn is going toward The Cat’s lunches for the next couple of days. Just add rice. 🙂

The Mouse catches a break in the kitchen. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Yesterday, forgot to pack the package of frozen vegetables. Sigh.

Luckily, it was a co-worker’s b-day. His cubicle neighbor prepared fruit instead of a cake.

Fruit!

Grapes, pineapple, apples, strawberries, kiwi, and something called Cara cara.

The Mouse’s

The Cara cara (here’s the Wiki article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cara_cara_navel), my new favorite orange. 🙂

Happy b-day K, thanks for saving The Mouse’s eating day. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Up the street from the campus, recommended by my cubicle neighbor.

Store Front

She said it was better than the grocery store. Who would’ve thought poke in a liquor store.

Thought I’d try something different.

Spicy Crawfish Poke Rice Bowl

So, not quite sure it’s traditional poke, since the crawfish is cooked, but … doesn’t matter to me, It’s all about the taste.

Socks flew off, worked barefoot the rest of the day (metaphorically, not physically). Hee hee.

Like eating a cross between shrimp and lobster, without the hassle of shells. Good balance between mayonnaise and sriracha. Definitely going back.

Since I was there, picked up little somethings for later and The Cat.

Ahi Inamona Poke

Roasted kukui nut. Very good, but, for The Mouse, the crawfish was still better.

Hamachi Poke

For The Cat. The Cat liked. 🙂

A package of fuikake soda crackers in the pantry.

Ahi Inamona Poke Canapé

Nom nom nom.

A great start to a long weekend!

Enjoy. Eat well.
