Unexpected “pit stop”. The Mouse was waiting between errands, and hadn’t eaten breakfast yet. Yung Yee Kee Dim Sum.


Hard to eat dim sum for one. The Mouse ordered “light”.

Preserved Egg and Pork Jook
Tofu Skin Wrapped Pork and Vegetables
Beef Meatball

After the meal, The Mouse picked up a box of Spanish rolls from Nanding’s Bakery, then ready for the next errand. Dropped off something to Chef Hardy. 🙂

Be safe, eat good.

A revisit to Kapiolani Seafood. The Mouse wanted to try their egg tart.

Egg Tarts

Very soft and creamy. The Mouse guesses lots of cream in the custard, he took to lactase pills, just in case. No untoward incident experienced. Whew!

Jook of the Day

Last week’s “flavor” was pork with preserved egg. This week, The Mouse thought the jook tasted like turkey or chicken with preserved egg. No matter, still good. 🙂

Chicken Dumplings

There was a hot pot dish, look funn with tendon on the menu, The Mouse was going to order. The Cat thought too much soup, the smaller bowl of chicken dumplings was ordered instead. The tendon was saved till next time.

The dumplings were very large, not bad, could be seasoned more. The Mouse’s opinion. The wrap was slightly thick. Try try.

Be safe, eat good.

From The Cat’s Suitcase

The Cat went on a business trip, stuff that ended up coming back in her suitcase.

Vinegar and Anchovies

Dried Mushroom

Instructions in Italian, what The Mouse could deduce and experience with other dried mushrooms, the Mouse steeped in hot water for about 20 minutes.

The Cat still has jet lag, time difference was eleven hours ahead.

The Mouse made rice porridge.

Jet Lag Bowl

Rice, Napa cabbage, mushrooms, wakame, leftover mushroom omelet, purple sweet potato. salt to taste.

Be safe, eat good.

The Cat didn’t bring lunch from home. A scheduling snafu at the office. The downstairs cafe.

Sandwich, Salad, Soup

The Mouse made “fast” congee, comfort food for The Cat’s stomach.

“Fast” Congee

Leftover rice, lotus seed, dried fava beans, roasted Brussels sprouts, canned bamboo shoot, wood-ear fungus, salt, and toasted sesame oil to finish. Mmm.

Be safe and well.
