No Recipe

And no ingredients, except for the egg.

Growing up, my favorite Japanese dish was oyako donburi, simmered egg and chicken on rice. Dunno why. Maybe it was easy to eat, maybe it was one of the cheapest dishes on menus? Anyways, it’s still a go-to dish when I dunno what to eat at Japanese restaurants.

Last night, did a little variation at home. Mind you, no chicken, no onions, and no dashi. And, wasn’t feeling like cooking rice.

Started with quinoa.

Instead of dashi broth, did a miso broth.

Instead of onions, thinly sliced celery and white stem cabbage.

Instead of chicken, leftover miso braised pork belly.

Add a beaten egg and let everything meld together. Ease the whole thing over the quinoa.

We’ve been eating out on Friday nights. The Cat tries to tie-up loose ends before the weekend and sometimes the tying takes longer than expected.

Couple of weeks ago, tried something different at the 808 Center.

Fried Rice with Twice Cooked Pork

The best dish of the night.

Overall, food is pretty good, their waiting and seating system though is a big problem. Is the food good enough to overcome the seating issue? Hmm. maybe not.

Yesterday, returned to an old favorite. Hunan Cuisine.

Sorry, picture isn’t the greatest, pork wasn’t cooperating photogenically.

Granted, we don’t have a stove attached to a dragon, couldn’t get the BTUs up to Chef C’s industrial kitchen. The Cat liked anyway. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.
