Posts Tagged ‘Pork belly’

The Cat came home early. Plan was neighborhood Japanese restaurant. Take-out only. Second choice, Italian a couple of doors down. The Mouse was having a tiny bit digestion issue, didn’t want to exacerbate with any dairy ingredient. Ordered safe.

Penne Pasta with Meat Sauce

The Cat ordered the daily special, breaded deep-fried braised pork belly, duck confit beans, andouille sausage, kale, pickled red cabbage.

Daily Special

Wait, wait, the pork belly is a version of pork tonkatsu. Hee hee. The Mouse was momentarily confused. Italian or Japanese or fusion. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

The Mouse home eats. Sandwiches.

Luncheon Meat and Cucumber

Wheat bread and mustard. Picture was pre-toasted. Note it was lunch meat, not SPAM. Keeping the SPAM for major events (think zombie apocalypse).

Pork Belly and Zucchini

Leftover simmered pork belly.

Stay safe and well.

Pork Belly on Pita

Simple, leftovers.

Dinner

Toaster oven, 10-15 minutes.

No need for any sauce/spread, some of the fat from the pork belly kinda rendered into the pita. Mmm.

No fuss.

Stay safe and well.

Some of our recent take-outs. 🙂

From Chef P., dessert.

Tapioca Pudding with Berries

The Mouse thinks Chef made this for The Cat’s birthday (a couple of weeks ago), Chef forgot. The tapioca was more boba-ish (chewy) than tapioca (soft), but still appreciated.

Tamago, Inari, and Poke

The Mouse’s lunch yesterday, from the grocery store reduced section. Just stocked, totally worth it. Hee hee.

The Mouse went to the nearby mall to pick a card, decided to pick dinner at the food court, ramen shop ran out of rice (sigh), picked side dishes.

Pork Belly and Takana

Boiled a carrot, added wakame, angel hair pasta, topped with pork belly and takana (mustard cabbage cooked with sesame oil and a little shichimi togarashi (Japanese chili powder blend).

Bowl of Noodles (Pasta)

The Cat slurped.

Stay safe and well.

This place has been on The Mouse’s radar for a long time.

Sign

Finally got here yesterday.

The plan was to go for an early dinner (restaurant tends to sell out of items), but The Cat over napped.

At least we were able to order one of the last portions of burnt ends.

Burnt Ends

Mmm, tender and fatty. First time try for The Cat and The Mouse. Fans.

The Cat couldn’t decide her choice for dinner, went with kalua pork.

Kalua Pork Tray

Baked bean, braised red cabbage and sweet rolls (sold out of house-made cornbread). The Cat was slightly underwhelmed. The kalua pork was like other kalua pork. Maybe the restaurant should offer pulled pork instead, just thinking aloud.

The Mouse has leftover lunch. 🙂

The Mouse fared better.

Brisket and Pork Belly

Both brisket and pork belly were very good. The Mouse saved a portion of the pork belly for The Cat’s bento. Trade.

Dessert was a staple for The Cat.

Mudd Pie

The Cat approved a provisional return. She will be ordering ribs next time, or burnt ends and sides.

Stay safe and well.
