Oxtail Soup Try

The Alley Restaurant at Aiea Bowl. The Cat and The Mouse went sorta later hoping the Mother’s Day crowd would not be so crowded. Worked, no waiting.

Oxtail Soup

The soup was “Chinese” style, Chinese five spice, star anise, dried mushrooms. Chinese style not The Cat’s favorite, but good try.

Oxtail Soup, Leftover

The Mouse added sliced turnip and seaweed, more water to dilute. The Cat thought better.

Be safe, eat good.

Kale Curry Salad

First time trying, with raisins and pineapple, not bad, lots of roughage. Whew!

“Pork and Peas”, The Mouse version

Leftover kalua pork, canned peas, no ketchup or tomato sauce/paste.

Pastele Stew with Rice Mini Bento

The Mouse added paprika, capers, and Japanese pickled turnip.

Either on clearance shelf or leftovers. 🙂

Non-noodles, kinda. Low-carb.

Yam Noodles

The Mouse followed directions, boiled for three minutes, drained. The noodles had an ocean-y smell.

The Mouse made a bowl.

The Mouse’s Bowl

Yam noodles tossed with salt, pepper, Szechuan pepper powder, olive oil, boiled cabbage with furikake, popcorn chicken, kamaboko fishcake, and leftover egg fu yong. The noodle texture was stiffer than regular noodles. Not sure if The Mouse would opt this on a regular basis. Once in a while maybe.

One of The Mouse’s favorite snacks, usually in packages of five, too many.

Individual Dorayaki

Japanese pancake sandwich with red bean filling. The Mouse got excited with the individual package. 🙂

Mmm! 🙂

The Mouse made a rustic cabbage slaw.

Cabbage slaw

Chopped cabbage, Kewpie mayonnaise, salt, pepper, paprika, dried chives. Mmm!

Next time, The Mouse might add a few capers and the brine liquid. 🙂

Be safe, eat good.

The Mouse, working from home, nothing fancy eats.


Pastele, rice (about two and a half bites), sweet potato.

Simmered Turnip

With ginger, one dried date. The turnip absorbed the spiciness of the ginger. Salt added before serving. The water from cooking the turnip made for soup base for The Cat’s noodles, turnip-y and ginger-y. Hee hee.

The Cat’s Bento

The rest of the rice, pastele bite, leftover yuba rolls, fried pork crumb, sweet potato, turnip. 🙂

Be safe, eat good.

Yea or nay? The Mouse doesn’t mind them, not as a regular staple, but occasionally.

Small-kid time, cheaper than fresh or frozen, The Mouse didn’t like them then.

Now, taste has changed, The Mouse doesn’t mind.

Rice Bowl with Canned Peas

Leftover mapo tofu. If The Mouse is doing stir-fry, frozen peas definitely, but leftover rice bowls, canned peas are okay. 🙂

Be safe, eat good.
