Not a very interesting week food-wise, my apologies.

Breakfast.

Microwaved Veggies with Peanut Butter

Still trying to use up that organic jar of peanut butter that is too runny for toast or sandwich. Mixed with mixed veggies, not too bad.

I figure, start out with a mess of vegetables in the morning, less guilt throughout the day. Hee hee.

The office is connected with the campus director of finance and facilities (what a combo). She brings back leftovers whenever she has business meetings.

Breakfast Leftovers

Breakfast burrito, orange, hash brown. The Mouse’s lunch.

Dinner was what was planned for lunch, before the breakfast leftover.

Turkey and Ham on JJ2 Whole Wheat with Shiso Leaf

See, unexciting.

Planning on doing a little bit of exploring for lunch tomorrow. Wish me luck.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Later this year, it will be Aunt Mʻs (not to be confused with Aunty Em) ninetieth b-day. A lot of the family will be scattered near the actual date. Decided to have a “pre-celebration” surprise.

Lunch at Jade Dynasty in the mall.

Seafood Seaweed Rolls

 

Taro Puff

I think the relatives ordered what they thought are Aunt Mʻs “favorites”.

 

Honey Walnut Shrimp

 

“Spicy” Eggplant with Tofu

 

Steamed Fish

With head and tail intact.

Braised E-Min

And of course.

Cake

Baked by one of the younger relatives.

Malasadas

Contributed by another relative.

Since The Cat and The Mouse will be in town on Aunt Mʻs birthdate, weʻll take her out for another mini-celebration.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Pork Dishes

Pork dishes we’ve eaten this week. Not planned, just happened.

"Korean" Pork

“Korean” Pork

Brussel sprouts and carrots as vegetable. From the campus cafeteria. Not bad, was able to snag a few pieces with fat. Mildly flavored.

Roast Pork

Roast Pork

From the grocery store on the way home. The Cat’s lunch. Brown rice and mixed vegetables. Gravy over everything. 🙂

"Char Siu" Pork

“Char Siu” Pork

Also from the grocery store (the pork). Microwave package rice (brown rice, quinoa, garlic), and frozen mixed vegetables. Chinatown is better, but less convenient.

Made it over the hump. It’s downhill from here. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Not a Typo

Intrigued by the pictures and reviews on Yelp, tried here for lunch today.

Noren

Why hang Japanese kitchen curtains in a “Chinese” restaurant? Dunno, maybe it’s cheaper than hanging doors.

And who came up with the name? Sigh.

Anyway, the two signs outside enticed The Mouse.

OK ...

OK …

 

Even Better

Even Better

With the discount, price not much more than a “decent” plate lunch, and drinks and dessert included. The pake in The Mouse smiles.

What piqued The Mouse’s interest was the pictures and comments on their char siu and roast pork. So, The Mouse’s first plate.

Roast Pork, Char Siu, Stir-Fried Napa Cabbage, Pot Stickers, Broccoli

Roast Pork, Char Siu, Stir-Fried Napa Cabbage, Pot Stickers, Broccoli

Hmm. Roast pork was decent, can’t compare to still on the hook in Chinatown, but passable. The char siu? Meh. But (almost) any char siu is better than none.

Egg Fu Yung, Deep Fried Tofu, Kung Pao Chicken, Beef Stew, More Roast Pork

Egg Fu Yung, Deep Fried Tofu, Beef Broccoli,  Kung Pao Chicken, Beef Stew, Mapo Tofu, More Roast Pork

Everything on the plate was serviceable, the surprise was the beef stew, must’ve been a really cheap cut of meat, but simmered for a loooooong time, “almost like buttah”. The cartiledge, fat, and little bit of meat melding together into a little bite of ahhh!

There was also a salad bar, but nothing for The Mouse to want to give up limited tummy space for.

Egg Drop Soup

Egg Drop Soup

Was okay, too much corn starch.

Coconut Tapioca

Coconut Tapioca

 

Mung Bean Dessert Soup

Mung Bean Dessert Soup

The mung bean soup was pretty good.

Chocolate Pudding

Chocolate Pudding

All in all, not bad, not the greatest, but not bad. The restaurant has a contract with one of the Chinese airlines to feed the flight crew after all. Good thing there’s a Kama‘aina discount. Probably would feel different at full price.

Soda and tea included.

Try try.

Enjoy. Eat well.
