Soup-ed Up

This week’s soup. Still pork foot (the other half from last week).

Pork Foot Bone

Instead of the usual “just broth” (bone, liquor, vinegar), The Mouse decided to add a few more ingredients .

Dried Mushrooms and Wood Ear Fungus

Soaked overnight.

Low and slow for about seven hours.

Pork Foot – Cooked

Falling off the bone. 🙂


Because of the mushrooms and fungus, this week’s broth is more “welcome to the dark side”. Hee hee.

The Cat’s Bowl of Noodles in Pork Foot Soup

Celery, soy beans, fried tofu, soba noodles. Slurp.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Okay, finally got all (I think all) of the pictures. Since it’s a perceived milestone birthday (for Aunty M), The Cat wanted to go to someplace different (and maybe special).  Lunch reservations at Yauatcha Waikiki, specializing in dim sum and tea.

Now, this ain’t your typical Chop Suey joint, think fusion between a higher-end dim sum establishment and a European night club.

Condiment Set-up

Chili oil, chili paste with anchovies (or could be dried shrimp, XO sauce?) pickled cucumber (these knocked The Mouse’s sock off), and soy sauce.

Jasmine Tea

Very nicely fragranced (perfumed?).

Har Gau (Shrimp Dumplings)


Bamboo Dumpling


Crab and Kalo (Taro) Croquette


Prawn and Crispy Beancurd Cheung Funn


Roast Duck Pumpkin Puff


Pak Choi with Ginger

Another winner! Definitely order again. Perfectly cooked and seasoned.

Of course, birthday meal, have to have noodles.

Three Mushrooms Hand Pulled Noodle

Another dish The Mouse would be happy to order again.

Raspberry Delice

Raspberry, Manjari chocolate, lychee. Presentation and taste. Nom!

Rich and decadent. Perfect for b-day.

Complimentary Dessert

Matcha green tea, lavender vanilla, and I forgot the last flavor. Aunty M was full.

Wrapped up for later

Aunty M, you da bestest. Happy b-day!

Enjoy. Eat well.

A Quickie

Both in soup and post.

No time for a “cook all day” foot soup (chicken nor pork). Picked up a package of pork ribs.

Pork Ribs

Same process, par-boil, wash, fresh water, low and slow. But instead of four or five plus hours simmering, two hours. The result does not yield collagen-rich soup, more like a light broth, no gelling. Last 45 minutes to an hour, threw in a diced turnip.

For The Cat’s bowl, noodles, dried seaweed, canned corn, pork broth, rib, and turnip.

The Cat’s Bowl

A quickie.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Sorry, Late

Ran an errand to the pharmacy. Donʻt ever get old, parts start to fall apart and fail. Yuck.

Anyway, a quick clean of the refridge.

Bone Broth Noodle Soup with Soybeans and White Stemmed Cabbage

The Catʻs bowl. The broth came out of the freezer. Forgot even what kind of broth it was. No matter. Collagen is collagen. The Cat didnʻt mind.

Refridge is cleanest (relatively) itʻs been for awhile.

So, how was your May 4th? Tomorrow is supposed to be “Revenge of the 5th”? IDK. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Eat more greens and veggies. It’s not that I don’t like vegetables, just kinda strayed during the holidays. Have to get back to “normal”.

New Year’s lunch with one of The Cat’s relatives. Kinda an “obligation” thing. And, has to be Chinese food. Ended up at Nice Day Chinese Seafood Restaurant.

In trying to stick to the new year’s resolution, The Mouse ordered greens.

Stir-Fried Choi Sum

Stir-Fried Choi Sum

The Cat ordered noodles.

Braised Egg Noodles

Braised Egg Noodles

The Cat’s relative was the “naughty” one (at least as far as resolutions go).

Kau Yuk with Taro

Kau Yuk with Taro

The Mouse tried to stick to the plan and ate mostly vegetables, but the kau yuk was too tempting. So, I had one piece. Think of it as easing into the habit. At least it was only one piece. And the leftovers were taken by the relative to remove further temptation. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.
