Newly opened in the neighborhood.


Dunno why (font maybe) but the movie Pan’s Labyrinth flashed in The Mouse’s mind. Weird, I know.

Mochiko Chicken and Shoyu Pork Special

For The Mouse. Dunno if pork was belly, little too lean, tasty though. Chicken was decent.

For The Cat.

Grilled Salmon

Rice went to The Cat, mac salad to The Mouse.

Since The Cat worked a little late, The Mouse did a little modification.

Jook with Grilled Salmon

Rice stayed warm and squishy, just how The Cat likes.

And for vegetable.

Sliced Cucumber

Dressed with mirin and rice vinegar.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Mouse knows, out of sequence.

Sunday dinner, Iron Chef’s new spot in SPAM Land.


The Cat started out with one of Chef’s signature beers.

Morimoto Soba

The Mouse isn’t quite sure, but buckwheat is involved with the making of the beer. Easy to drink.

Spicy Hamachi and Spider Roll

Roast duck Caesar. Weird presentation, but when you consider it is Chef Morimoto, kinda fits.

Tableside presentation.

Tableside Presentation

Ingredients in takeout box, blonde anime server shakes box like making a Bond martini, and voila, “composed salad”. Hee hee.

Roast Duck Caesar

Romaine lettuce, cucumber, red onion, crispy wonton, watermelon radish, parmesan, caesar dressing.

The Mouse would order again, if just to laugh at the presentation. The Mouse still likes the Caesar at Michel’s, including presentation.

The Cat’s entree.

Hainanese Chicken Rice

Poached chicken breast, tumeric rice, ginger scallion sauce, chili sauce. The Cat thought good, but Chinatown is cheaper (but Chinatown chicken not “touched” by an Iron Chef).

The Mouse ordered.

Mapo Tofu

Tobanjan, tofu, miso pork, scallion. Notice anything missing from the ingredient list? Sichuan peppercorn. Server explained might be too intense for some customers. Sigh, guess gotta go to Sichuan restaurant. Still, good comfort food, like getting Zippy’s vegetarian chili and rice. Hee hee.


Banana Pudding and Chai Tea

Housemade vanilla wafers, caramel rum pudding, chai bubble tea,

Strawberry Yuzu Sorbet

Sorbet was a winner! Definitely going back to order again.

Server also comped us a scoop of mango sorbet. The Cat has that picture on her phone.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Rice and Rain

The Mouse got caught in one of SPAM Land’s freaky storms last night. The Cat was home slightly incapacitated. The Cat said light. Tacoria and Korean nearest take-out joints.


Almost closing, ordered what The Cat likes.

Rice, Beans, Vegetables

Have to go back and check out the place, earlier and under better weather conditions.

Not quite enough for The Mouse, also grabbed.

Bi Bim Bap

The drive home was … interesting. Wet, thunder, lighting.

Looks kinda clearer today. We’ll see.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Chinatown “grocery” store. No fresh food, just dry and canned goods.

Bamboo Shoots

Dunno if there is a difference between winter and other seasons. Maybe The Cat knows.


Looks like shiitake mushrooms to The Mouse. Picture when the can is opened.

Preserved Vegetable

The Mouse always knew this as spicy pickled mustard cabbage hearts. Condiment to noodles or steamed with sliced pork belly -Ono!

Mixed Grain Rice

Eventually end up in The Cat’s bento.

Sorghum Rice

An unfamiliar ingredient for The Mouse. A try try item. Have to Google.

Weather was still soggy yesterday (blue skies today) but cleared enough for The Mouse to venture out.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Fuzzy Pictures

Jus’ pics. Food not made by The Mouse.

Hand Roll Sushi

The Mouse thinks brown rice, tuna, and some other ingredients The Mouse couldn’t identify. Korean roasted seaweed instead of Japanese sheets. Nom.

Cabbage Soup

With Chinese long squash and hearts of palm. All vegetarian, good, but missing a bit of fat/oil. Maybe a slice of bacon or two? Hee hee.

That’s it for now, a little sparse on content, sorry, life got in the way.

Enjoy. Eat well.
