So, the place The Mouse picked up his maguro burger from also has omurice on the menu. The Mouse wants. There was a thought that after doing some work at the warehouse yesterday, The Mouse would get the omurice. The Mouse stayed a little longer than planned and didn’t want to drive across town for food.

The next best thing, drive through at Richie’s Drive Inn.

Loco Moco

Massive. Two scoops rice, two eggs, two burger patties, scoop of mac salad, and gravy all over. All for less than $10! Cheap eats.

The warehouse butcher supervisor is right, their gravy is the bomb! Nothing fancy, probably packaged with some in-house modification, no French name, but oh so good.

Plus there are some of the components of omurice (it’s a stretch, but work with me), rice, eggs, gravy. Kinda yeah?

Of course, a visit to Richie’s cannot be without a cup of green river.

Green River

Don’t worry, The Mouse couldn’t and wouldn’t eat the whole thing in one sitting (maybe thirty years ago). Even eating less than half put The Mouse into a food coma.

One day, one the timing is right, omurice! Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

Forgot to hit “send”, again. Ugh!

“Busy” schedule Sunday. The Mouse and The Cat needed an “early” meal after the farmers market, couldn’t wait for the normal 11:00 time.

Neighborhood Korean restaurant that opens early.

Tofu Soup

The soup came to the table all red and still bubbling, The Mouse thought it looked a little angry. Hee hee.

The Mouse ordered two specials, he thought since the price was special, it would be smaller portions, he was wrong.

Kimchi Fried Rice


Loco Moco

The kimchi fried rice was really good, even The Cat liked it. The loco moco? Hamburger patty was cooked well, the gravy? A little weird. Maybe order again, but add gojujang sauce to the mix.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Breakfast, Pan’s Kitchen, The Mouse’s choice, didn’t think The Cat would appreciate eating out of take-out boxes, she said she didn’t mind.

The Mouse tried this place once before when they first started, was okay, maybe they were still finding their feet.

Breakfast Special

Rice, two eggs, choice of meat, this time The Cat ordered corned beef hash, under $6.00, available all day, good deal.

The Cat said the corned beef hash was well made/cooked.

Loco Moco

Rice, two burger patties, two eggs, mac salad, and gravy with onions and mushrooms. Nom! The Mouse is slowly getting his taste back for onions. Just have to be cooked for now.

Since first time trying for breakfast, added a side of French toast.

French Toast

Usually, a side order is four pieces (two slices), but this place gives six pieces (three slices) good deal.

Enough food for The Cat to make one extra bento. The Mouse had the leftover French toast for next day breakfast.

The Cat approved a return visit. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Fifty percent off breakfast, this weekend only. The Mouse tried after blood test. Place used to be owned by one of The Cat’s clients but sold. New owners, hence the soft opening.

Kalua Pork Loco Moco on Fried Rice

No extra charge for the fried rice (sometimes, at other places, fried rice is an upcharge), so The Mouse went with it. Two eggs, nom! In hindsight, with the kalua pork and gravy, the fried rice was a flavor bomb. Too much for The Mouse to handle. But tasty. The rice kinda looked like broken rice. Wonder if it was due to the tossing in the wok (The Mouse is assuming a wok was used) or maybe the flattop?

And since it was fifty percent, and a blood test was involved …

Ube Pancakes – Small Stack

Pancakes with Okinawan sweet potato cream. Jus’ to try.

Overall, good job, except for the fifty percent off, a little pricey for The Mouse, if prices were just a little bit lower, say a dollar or two, The Mouse would be more comfortable. Maybe that’s just the “pake” in The Mouse. Jus’ my opinion.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Mouse.
