So a week ago was mooncake day? Both The Cat and The Mouse were too busy. Plus hard to go to Chinatown.

The Mouse picked up some take-out yesterday. In The Mouse’s mind, worthy substitutes, Hee hee.

Fried Mochi Balls

Two bite sized. Perfect. No, The Mouse did not eat them all in one sitting. Warms up great in the toaster oven. The Cat is refraining, still on antibiotics.

Of course, The Mouse made a meal. Hee hee again.

Rice Cake, Char Siu Manapua

One last “must have”, according to The Mouse. ๐Ÿ™‚

Roast Pork and Char Siu

Enough for a couple of days. Nom!

Stay safe and well.

The Mouse was craving Chinese roast pork (and a little char siu). A quick stop at the neighborhood Chinese take-out.

The Mouse’s Dinner

Manapua, shiso leaves, apple, steamed rice cake, steamed pork hash. Mmm!

Local style, less dainty, more hearty. Hee hee.

Also picked up a good amount of Chinese roast pork.

Chinese Roast Pork

The Mouse’s layered bento. A few pieces of Chinese roast pork, frozen spinach, braised shredded pork.

Savory Parfait?

Really not a parfait, but you get the idea. Three minutes in the micro at the warehouse, the gelatin from the braised pork melting into the spinach. Nom! Then the Chinese roast pork in the bottom as an extra treat. Mmm! Happy Mouse.

Stay safe and well.

A visit AFTER doctor appointment.

The Place

The Mouse brought his own container. For small orders, take-out is wax paper bag, sometimes resulting in squished food on the way home.

1 Manapua (Char Siu Bao) 3 Pork Siu Mai

Paired with more char siu from the nearby grocery store (apparently, on of the managers used to work as a chef).

Char Siu

The Mouse seriously nommed. ๐Ÿ™‚

Enjoy. Eat well.

Hand Held Food

Earlier this week, one of The Mouse’s co-workers was getting sworn in as a new citizen. The Mouse went to Chinatown to pick up a lei for her, unfortunately, it was on the day The Mouse’s favorite manapua store was closed.

So, yesterday, with manapua still on The Mouse’s mind, left early for work, quick detour into Chinatown, found parking, and picked up lunch.

Manapua, Pork Hash Dumplings

Big, white, fluffy ball of dough, spongy, airy, yet chewy. Nom! All The Mouse needed was a can of fruit punch and small kid time again. Hee hee.

Dinner was a simple naan bread sandwich with ham and shiso.

Ham and Shiso on Naan Bread

Lightly toasted.

Enjoy. Eat well.
