Oxtail Ramen

Long time ago, there used to be a “diner” in a bowling alley. Great oxtail soup. The bowling alley closed and location became a chain pharmacy.

Nearby the now gone bowling alley, another long time diner closes and the bowling alley diner takes over. Kam Bowl Restaurant.

A lighter option on the menu. Oxtail ramen, not as big as oxtail soup, not as many tail segments, ramen noodles instead of rice. Cheaper too.

Quickly became one of The Cat’s new favorite.

The Mouse ordered chicken stir-fry. Another “signature” dish of the diner.

Chicken Stir-Fry

Mmm! Lots of veggies. Their sauce is also winner. 🙂

Dessert.

The Cat also “found” another favorite.

Pumpkin Crunch, Jello

Not photogenic, but The Cat liked the pumpkin crunch, the jello mold had a few pieces of canned fruit, bonus. Mmm.

The Cat agreed revisits are necessary. 🙂

Be safe and well.

Radish Soup

The Mouse used leftover oxtail soup as the base. Simmered the radish for about 1/2 hour, radish greens for about 7 minutes.

The Cat’s Dinner

With pan-fried Chinese flat bread (pancake?). The Cat liked. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

So, The Cat and The Mouse tried the Japanese/Vietnamese restaurant the other day. While there, another customer ordered oxtail soup. Since The Cat likes oxtail soup, we asked him how it was, he said very good. The Cat wanted to try, so the next day we went back.

Oxtail Soup

The broth is same as pho. Not quite what The Cat was expecting but still good (and the leftover broth jelled).

The Mouse went with appetizers.

Gyoza

Well made, The Mouse would order again. Mmm.

Spring Rolls

Yes, The Mouse ordered again. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

The oxtail. Part II.

After the parboil (about 30 minutes), drained, cooled, and refrigerated.

Trimmed the outside fat (think fat cap).

Into the pot. Oxtail, tree ear fungus, heavy soy sauce, salt, pepper, sugar, vodka, orange extract, ginger. Slow simmer for about an hour, add peanuts, more slow simmer for another 90 minutes, add turnip and bamboo shoot, more simmer for another hour or so.

Braised Oxtail Stew – Asian Flavor

The Mouse style.

Right now, the stew is resting in the refridge for at least overnight to let the flavors and liquid soak and distribute.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Oxtail!

And so it begins.

Oxtail

Rinse the blood off, parboil to “clean” and to render some of the fat off.

Tree Ear Fungus

Also rinsed and parboiling. Not in the same pot.

It’s going to be a process.

The Mouse decided Asian style, the carrot and celery for Western style were too expensive.

Also planning to add bamboo shoot (canned), and maybe black-eyed beans.

Enjoy. Eat well.
