Posts Tagged ‘Gyoza’

Dunno why, many restaurants were at capacity for dinner last night. The Cat was hangry with an a. Ended up at curry/ramen shop at the mall instead of The Cat and The Mouse’s normal eating spots. Combo meals.

Ramen and Won Ton Ramen

Not bad, decently edible. The won ton even contained shrimp. While not gourmet, definitely satisfying.


Several levels above average. The Mouse wouldn’t mind going back for more. Mmm.

Vegetable Croquette Curry and “Mapo Tofu”

The vegetable croquette was more like a asian hash brown, The Mouse didn’t mind. The mapo tofu was not mapo tofu sauce but curry sauce. The Cat didn’t like. The Mouse will eat for breakfast after posting this.

In conclusion, the ramen, plus, the gyoza, plus plus, the curry, one neutral, one kinda fail. Two or two and a half out of three (Meatloaf power singing in the background, RIP).

Stay safe and well.

So, The Cat and The Mouse tried the Japanese/Vietnamese restaurant the other day. While there, another customer ordered oxtail soup. Since The Cat likes oxtail soup, we asked him how it was, he said very good. The Cat wanted to try, so the next day we went back.

Oxtail Soup

The broth is same as pho. Not quite what The Cat was expecting but still good (and the leftover broth jelled).

The Mouse went with appetizers.


Well made, The Mouse would order again. Mmm.

Spring Rolls

Yes, The Mouse ordered again. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

The Mouse wanted dumplings. He was trying to decide between gyoza or won ton or gau gee. Ramen shop or chop suey. Since The Mouse was picking up a few soft cooked eggs for The Cat’s bento, qyoza it is.

Ramen shop in the mall. Usually The Mouse buys their stir-fried mustard cabbage or the soft boiled egg, sometimes the simmered pork belly, with or without rice.

The ramen shop’s gyoza won some kind of award, The Mouse forgot which one.


The Mouse thinks one of the better gyoza he has eaten. Definitely will order again. The Mouse would like to know the historical reference for gyoza. More research (and eating) needed. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

The Mouse picked up one order of corned beef hash and eggs on rice and one order of gyoza from one of the neighborhood take-outs on the way home. Split with The Cat.

The Mouse’s Plate

Kinda straight forward, with a sprinkling of hot sauce.

The Cat’s Bowl

The Mouse made a quick jook with the rice added frozen vegetables, topped with the corned beef hash, egg, and gyoza before service. The Cat likes gushy food. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

Only in SPAM Land?

Yesterday, chiropractor, dentist. Late breakfast/lunch, after 1:30 pm. The Mouse wanted something soupy, and maybe curry. Ramen combo near the grocery store.




The chasiu was very well prepared, moist, tender, and tasty.


Part of the combo, jus’ okay.

Last but not least, a new try for The Mouse.

SPAM Katsu Curry

What mad genius would think of battering and deep-frying a slice of SPAM. Wonderful NOM!

Curry was probably packaged Japanese style curry, which is okay, but the SPAM, salty, crusty. Happy Mouse.

Interior View

Now I realize this dish may not be for everyone, just the adventurous and the aficionados of SPAM. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.
