Driving home after work.

Double Rainbow

Mind started playing ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’, the Judy Garland version, not the Iz version. Hee hee.

Don’t get me wrong, The Mouse loves the Iz version, just it wasn’t playing in my head at the moment.

Picked up on the way.


Ume and wakame, edamame and seaweed. Thoughts wander over to Zatoichi.

Zatoichi and Judy Garland soundtrack. Told ya weird. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Mouse had plans to go to Chinatown, then the mall. Weather was too humid, The Mouse felt like he was steamed dim sum. Sigh.

Stayed near home, no soup making. The Mouse didn’t want to be more steamed.

Lunch from Mama’s Kitchen.

Steak Plate

Under ten bucks! Not wagyu, not kobe, not even angus, but for less than a tenner, good enough. Hee hee.

Roast Pork Plate

For The Cat’s bento, again, under ten bucks. Good deal, enough portion for The Cat to take two bento for work.

Dinnertime, still sticky. Grocery store foraging. 🙂

Char Siu Pork

Two pieces of pork belly, one rib section. The belly for later use (in the freezer) the ribs shared with The Cat. Ribs were not “fall off the bone”, but tasty.

Inari Sushi

Also from the grocery store, afternoon mark-down.

No Ruby Tuesday today, maybe oysters and Brussels sprouts.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Rice Bowls

Sunday. No Mudd pie this time. The Cat’s trying to lose a perceived spare tire. The Mouse gave up a long time ago.

Spicy Pork Bibimbap

The Cat’s.

Assorted Banchan


Beef Bibimbap

The Mouse’s

Well balanced, rice, vegetables, protein. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

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).

Chicken Close Up


Hainanese Rice Close Up

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.
