The local Ruby Tuesday is promoting its local eats menu. Free dessert for two local eats entrΓ©e ordered. So of course, The Cat and The Mouse had to try. πŸ™‚

Roast Pork

Slow roasted pork, rice, and steamed broccoli. The Cat thought the pork was a tiny bit on the dry side. The Mouse thought the pork was okay, just not Chinese roasted pork belly with crispy skin.

Hamburger Steak

“Fully loaded” with two hamburger patties, onion and mushroom gravy, dirty rice, and steamed broccoli. The Mouse was happy and full.

Mudd Pie

The Cat’s favorite. πŸ™‚

Stay safe and well.

The Mouse finally timed a visit to the mall ramen shop when there was still rice available. πŸ™‚

Pork Belly with Rice
Chasiu with Rice

Ramen style chasiu, not Chinatown style charsiu, but this ramen shop makes good chasiu, tasty and meaty. Mmm.

Soft Boiled Egg and Takana

Sides. The Mouse and The Cat ate like kings and queens. πŸ™‚

While not extremely cheap eats, decently affordable. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

The Chinese restaurant that used to be downtown moved to the outskirts of the city. The owners said the downtown location was too big. The Cat and The Mouse coming back from an errand, both getting hungry. Too late for dim sum.

Salt and Pepper Porkchop

Moist and tender.

Chinese Broccoli

Cooked well, tender but still crisp.

Singapore Style Rice Noodle

Mild curry flavor. One of the better versions The Mouse has eaten recently.

Appears that there will be more errands in this area, repeat visits to this eatery might be in the foreseeable future. πŸ™‚

Maybe early enough to get dim sum.

Stay safe and well,

The Mouse stopped by a different grocery store on the way back from getting his vaccination. Picked up a package of pork tongue (usually not found at the grocery stores he frequents).

The Mouse picked the smallest package, to experiment, went on the internet for tips (no pun intended). Hee hee.

Cut slits into the skin, boiled/simmered between 3 to 4 hours, removed from water, peeled skin (cooled but still warm), new water, apple cider vinegar, sea salt, star anise, ginger, whiskey, carrot, lots of tree ear fungus, simmered for another hour or so.

Braised pork tongue. The Cat liked. The Mouse thought about adding a small amount of miso but was afraid the taste would be too strong.

Stay safe and well.

Dinner at The Cat and The Mouse’s favorite place, friend’s birthday.


Abalone Soup

Split pea. Inventive chef.


Iced Seafood

Lobster, sashimi, poke, etc. oh my! Nom!



The Cat and guest had Caesar, Chef changed up The Mouse’s dressing to a red wine blend because of The Mouse’s dairy issue. The Mouse did get anchovies. πŸ™‚


Portabello Mushroom Crusted Salmon

Balsamic vinegar glaze, tomato coulis, fiddle head fern, oven roasted tomato. The salmon soft like buttah. Mmm.


Meyer’s Lemon Sorbet


Snake River Farm Kurobuta Pork

Truffle madeira sauce, haricot vert beans, mushrooms. One of the best pork dishes outside of pork belly The Mouse experienced. Mmm!


Fresh Strawberry Jello with Fresh Mint and Gelato

The chef explained to us his fruit extraction machine that steams the fruit and extracts pure juice. He hauled it from Germany a long time ago. The Mouse wonder if the machine could work on mango. Hee hee.

Chef usually makes epic chef’s choice meals but this one was Tolkien epic. Thank Chef H!

Stay safe and well.
