Soupy Stuff

The Cat’s digestion kinda funky, long hours at work, not eating on schedule. Needs soupy stuff.

Tendon Pho

At the mall, after the farmers market on Sunday.

Throw Everything Together Bowl

The Cat got her eyes dilated yesterday, came home early from the doctor (couldn’t work too well). The Mouse made an impromptu bowl. Orzo pasta, mushroom bone soup, frozen corn, fresh asparagus. Soupy stuff. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

A Ruby Tuesday special (I think only in SPAM Land).

St. Louis Ribs, Baked Potato

Ordered an additional side order to pack into The Cat’s bento this week. The Manago Hotel plating style again. Hee hee.

Just add rice, sauteed cabbage, mushroom gravy. Tah dah!

The Mouse’s impromptu soba bowl last night.

Canned Bamboo Shoots

For some reason, The Cat thinks she’s a panda. Hee hee.

Hot Soba with Bamboo

Fried tofu, soybeans, chicken soup.


Enjoy. Eat well.

Sunday Pho

This past Sunday, instead of the semi-regular Ruby Tuesday, soup noodles.


The Cat’s stomach needed something warm and soupy, too many late nights at the office, weird eating.

The Cat’s Oxtail Soup


The Mouse’s Won Ton Egg Noodle Soup

Instead of the standard rice noodles.


Dunno, maybe the Thai basil helped to settle The Cat’s stomach.

The Cat liked. Only drawback, no dessert (read mudpie). Sigh.

That’s okay, with The Cat’s stomach not being at optimal functioning status anyway …

Enjoy. Eat well.

Chinatown this past weekend. Original plan was to check out a bar for a burger, but the Saturday menu only offered brunch. The Mouse wasn’t in the mood for brunch. Ended up at Sunflower Cafe.

Ginger Onion Stewed Noodle

With broth.


Load noodles on spoon, dip in broth, chew.

And since The Mouse was there …

Steamed Shanghai Dumplings


Pan Fried Turnip Cake

Three to a plate, The Mouse ate one, two for The Cat’s bento.

And for dessert.

Custard Tarts

Meal wasn’t a burger, but can’t go wrong with noodles and dim sum. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Not ramen, not udon, not mein. Saimin. Not sure about the origins but small kid time noodles.

One of the best places for saimin, The Mouse’s opinion. Been in business for 70 years, not as old as Manago Hotel, but respectable the same.


First floor of mixed use (businesses and apartments) building.

Kitchen Area

Blast from the past.


Old school, right?

Because of tight parking, the Mouse doesn’t get to visit as often as he would like. But, the other day, The Mouse was free about three o’clock in the afternoon. Perfect timing, after lunch crowd, before dinner crowd.

Large Saimin

Clear dashi, simple, no pretender chasiu but real charsiu!

The Mouse being The Mouse, had to order extra.


Into the soup.

Ready to Nom!

So, The Mouse has never been a noodle “slurper”, dunno why.

The Mouse Method

A portion of noodle (notice the curly texture), char siu, garnish, a quick dip in the soup, one bite. 🙂

Oh, and no saimin meal is complete (old school style anyway) without an order of a BBQ stick.

BBQ Stick

Flame broiled tri-tip beef dipped in our home-made oriental BBQ sauce.

Mmm! Nom!

Enjoy. Eat well.
