The Cat’s Bowl

The Mouse really should’ve considered becoming a ramen cook (not chef). Hee hee.

Saturday’s (and sometimes Friday’s), refridge and pantry become “sparse”.

The Cat’s “mish-mash” noodle bowl.

The Cat’s Noodle Bowl

Dried seaweed, frozen soybeans, celery, turnip, leftover shoyu pork, spicy bamboo shoot, a combo of soba and somen noodles.

The Cat liked.

Enjoy. Eat well.

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. 🙂

“Broth”

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.

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.

Macaroons

 

Interior

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.

A quickie.

Enjoy. Eat well.
