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.

Green River

The Mouse wanted green river. Old school. Not many places serve. Richie’s Drive In is one. Good thing it’s kinda on the way home.

Green River

Since The Mouse usually cannot drink it all in one sitting, he found the perfect container.

For Green River

And green tea. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

The Mouse was jonesing for liver yesterday. Used to be a staple on many “diner” style restaurants. Nowadays, kinda hard to find on menus. Luckily one of The Mouse’s “go-to” drive inns (Meg’s Drive Inn) still serve.

Liver with Onions and Bacon

A mess of onions and bacon. Yum! Happy Mouse!

Of course, couldn’t leave the place without ordering The Mouse’s favorite soft drink, strictly for nostalgic purposes. Hee hee.

Green River

A great start to a three-day weekend. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

So, the place The Mouse picked up his maguro burger from also has omurice on the menu. The Mouse wants. There was a thought that after doing some work at the warehouse yesterday, The Mouse would get the omurice. The Mouse stayed a little longer than planned and didn’t want to drive across town for food.

The next best thing, drive through at Richie’s Drive Inn.

Loco Moco

Massive. Two scoops rice, two eggs, two burger patties, scoop of mac salad, and gravy all over. All for less than $10! Cheap eats.

The warehouse butcher supervisor is right, their gravy is the bomb! Nothing fancy, probably packaged with some in-house modification, no French name, but oh so good.

Plus there are some of the components of omurice (it’s a stretch, but work with me), rice, eggs, gravy. Kinda yeah?

Of course, a visit to Richie’s cannot be without a cup of green river.

Green River

Don’t worry, The Mouse couldn’t and wouldn’t eat the whole thing in one sitting (maybe thirty years ago). Even eating less than half put The Mouse into a food coma.

One day, one the timing is right, omurice! Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

The Mouse was still jonesing for a good pork meal after the tiny crispy pork “experience” (misadventure? mistranslation?). Had to quick stop at the warehouse yesterday, and since The Mouse was in the area …

Picked-up lunch from Meg’s Drive In, one of the few places that still serves Green River regularly. 🙂

Roast Pork Plate Lunch

With mac salad and gravy! Mmm, tender pork, bits of fat, and an added bonus, stufffing! Nom!

Green River

Perfect meal, The Mouse was full and satiated.

🙂

Stay safe and well.
