Nest door to Sunday’s steak take-out is a boba tea shop (same owner). While The Cat and The Mouse were waiting for the steak order, took a peek next door.

In addition to boba drinks, the shop also offered Taiwanese snacks and bentos. The Cat ended up ordering a pork and bamboo bento for weekday lunch.

Braised Pork with Bamboo Bento

Vegetables (various) and a tea egg. Nice spread. The Cat left a little of the pork for The Mouse to try.

The Mouse’s Bowl

Rice, pork, tomato, and carrot. Mmm. Although the pork was on the lean side, it wasn’t dry, the shop did a good job with the braise.

Stay safe and well.

The Mouse experimenting. Chopped pork shoulder from the grocery store.

Chopped Pork Shoulder

Five-spice powder, salt, black pepper, shoyu, whiskey. Steamed for 45 minutes.

Not pretty, but tasty.

Steamed Pork

The Cat said although well-cooked, too much five-spice taste. The Mouse has another batch marinating, he intends to rinse the marinade, add more shoyu to counterbalance the five-spice, and try again. Experimenting.

Stay safe and well.

Sorry, long title. Hee hee.

From yesterday’s grocery store purchase. Parboiled the spare ribs, rinsed, new clean water, simmered with vinegar, dried mushrooms. Wakame seaweed and bamboo shoot to finish. Served with thin egg noodles.

The Mouse’s dinner last night (just don’t tell my doctor ok). Hee hee.

Steamed Chinese Bacon over Rice

In The Mouse’s defense, he did use brown rice. Could the brown rice absorb some of the fat and not get digested? Hey, it’s Christmastime, anything could happen right? 🙂

Stay safe and well.

Restaurants still trying to figure how to open up and stay safe. Long lines. The Cat and The Mouse went take-out instead.

Spicy Eggplant and Grilled Chicken

The Cat ate and packed two bentos, just needed to add more vegetables and done. 🙂

Chicken Curry and Teriyaki Pork

The Mouse ate and packed one bento. Again, just add more vegetables. Hee hee.

Five meals, just under $20 total, cheap eats.

Stay safe and well.
