The Mouse seems to order these dishes fairly frequently from the neighborhood chop suey (Kin Wah).

Scrambled Eggs with Chives, Choi Summ, Rice

Kau Yuk with Taro

Enough food for three bento, and one lunch. 🙂

Be well, eat good.

Chop Suey Eats

The neighborhood chop suey finally re-opened for sit-down dining. They were doing a brisk take-out business during lockdown.

The Cat and The Mouse did a couple of take-out from them but it’s different.

Stringbeans with Spicy Pork

Eggs with chive

Kau Yuk with Taro


“Regular” dishes is better than paper or foam. 🙂

Be safe and well.

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.
