The Mouse on another errand for The Cat. Near Yen Yen chop suey. The Mouse’s favorite Chinese plate lunch.

Plate Lunch

Rice, ginger onion chicken, pot roast pork, beef with vegetables, fried won ton (two). The Mouse packed the rice, chicken, vegetables, and part of the pot roast pork to The Cat’s bento, he ate the beef, fried won ton, and the rest of the pot roast pork. Mmm.

Stay safe and well.

To clarify, one Chinese take-out, one “American-Chinese” take-out, and for a bonus, one Japanese take out. Hee hee.

In chronological order.

Panda Express

Self-described “American Chinese” fast food.

Steamed Vegetables, Grilled Chicken, and String Bean Chicken Breast

Plus a bonus side order (for filling out their online survey) of grilled chicken.

The Cat got the string bean chicken, The Mouse got the steamed vegetables and grilled chicken, The Mouse also took the extra grilled chicken for lunch the next day. Winners! 🙂

Japanese Take-Out

Take-out window for lunch, small dining room during dinner. Simple “homestyle” food.

“Hole in the Wall”

In a good way. Hee hee. Ample quantity, low price, cheap eats.

Oyako Don (Take-Out Style)

A little potato-mac salad and salted cabbage on the side, nice.

A little too much rice for The Mouse … stuffed … zzz.

Last, but not least, Chinese take-out.


For “more research”. Hee.

Cold Ginger Onion Chicken


Chinese Pot Roast Pork

AKA Kau Yuk!

Alas, the kau yuk was a little on the lean side. The Mouse thinks the kitchen used butt or shoulder cut instead of belly cut. Sigh. Taste was good, sinfully “melt in your mouth” unctuousness was somewhat missing. I guess kitchen was trying to make the dish “healthier”. Double sigh. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Cubicle neighbor mentioned yesterday she might go to Tamura’s Fine Wine and Liquors (for poke bowl) today and if I wanted to tag-along. Still had the leftover kau yuk to deal with.

Light bulb.


Brown Rice, Kau Yuk, Japanese Salted Cabbage, and Dried Plums

Okay, cleared the way for poke bowl for lunch. Hee hee.

Tried combo bowl for lunch.

Masago Ahi Poke and Wasabi Crawfish on Brown Rice

The ahi poke was okay (uneventful), should’ve stuck with the all crawfish like the first time. Oh well, try try.

Dinner was back at Bob’s Bar-B-Que for another sandwich.

Grilled Ahi Sandwich

Trust me, the sandwich was a lot better than the picture. Fish not overcooked, perfect tarter sauce, bun not soggy/mushy this time. Nom!

There’s a baked bean/Polish sausage plate I really want to try. Heading back there soon!

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


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.

Eat more greens and veggies. It’s not that I don’t like vegetables, just kinda strayed during the holidays. Have to get back to “normal”.

New Year’s lunch with one of The Cat’s relatives. Kinda an “obligation” thing. And, has to be Chinese food. Ended up at Nice Day Chinese Seafood Restaurant.

In trying to stick to the new year’s resolution, The Mouse ordered greens.

Stir-Fried Choi Sum

Stir-Fried Choi Sum

The Cat ordered noodles.

Braised Egg Noodles

Braised Egg Noodles

The Cat’s relative was the “naughty” one (at least as far as resolutions go).

Kau Yuk with Taro

Kau Yuk with Taro

The Mouse tried to stick to the plan and ate mostly vegetables, but the kau yuk was too tempting. So, I had one piece. Think of it as easing into the habit. At least it was only one piece. And the leftovers were taken by the relative to remove further temptation. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.
