The Mouse had to pick-up his prescription near the airport. “Chinese-American” eats nearby. Throwback decades ago when Chinese food was “exotic”. Restauranteurs here would offer Chinese food, burgers and fries, and plate lunches to appeal to the masses. To The Mouse, this place is a rare-find relic to the past.

The Mouse’s original plan was won ton soup with vegetables and a burger. An accurate order would have been saimin and a burger (It’s a local thing), but The Mouse is a rebel. Hee hee.

But Saturday special noodles was cheaper. Remember, The Mouse is sometimes “pake”.

Crispy Gau Gee Mein

Gravy, not soup, gau gee, not won ton, fried not steamed. Same same, hee hee.

Before, at these Chinese-American places, cornstarch slurry is a constant friend. Same here.

To make a true “Chinese-American” experience, The Mouse also ordered.

Hamburger Delux

Everything for less than 10 bucks! Prices must be throwback too! Hee hee.

Not to leave The Cat out, The Mouse picked up half a roast duck for her dindin and bento protein.

Roast Duck

The Cat’s verdict? Not bad, Chinatown is better, but it’s decent. No complaints.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Enjoy. Eat well.

So, The Cat’s brother arrived yesterday, understandably wanted comfort food. The Mouse suggested Hong Kong Noodle House.

Front

In retrospect, kinda dumb suggestion. Why would someone fly in from Hong Kong and then eat Hong Kong noodles in SPAM Land? In the end, it worked out since the soup noodles were comfort food. Hee hee.

The Cat’s Roast Duck Lai Funn Soup Bowl

Kinda like Chinese udon noodles. The Cat liked.

The Mouse’s Won Ton Mein

The Cat’s bro ordered beef stew noodle soup. He liked. Just like Hong Kong. πŸ™‚

After a long plane flight, comfort food (however the definition) is a good thing.

The Noodle Master

The Hong Kong egg noodles are made in-house, the look funn and lai funn are outsourced. Maybe from Lam’s Kitchen? Dunno.

Nearby Butcher

Check out his chopping block, can’t get any more old school. πŸ™‚

Enjoy. Eat well.

Driven by this place hundreds of times without a thought (neighborhood chop suey joint). The on-street parkiing situation was a hinderance. Recent article in paper reported a change in ownership (retirement), and a fresh coat of paint (supposedly to represent the restaurant name, “Ocean/Sky). Food pictures in the paper (especially the char siu) looked appetizing.

Location near the original L & L Barbecue and Jane’s Fountain.

On the way home from doc appointment (new doc), open space in front (must be kismet). πŸ™‚

Outside

Inside, still kinda “hole-in-the-wall-y”.

Inside

Three small tables at most, guess most of the business is take-out. Did notice a new-ish air conditioner above.

Since it was Friday, a little splurge.

Roast Duck

Mostly for The Cat. As an added bonus, there’s steamed choiΒ sum underneath all the duck, nice touch. Overall, The Cat thought the duck was pretty good. Fairly meaty, decent taste, greens a plus.

Char Siu

Definitely Chinese style (not ramen style). Slightly salty/sweet, tender, not much fat. Only thing missing was the koki pieces (charred bits). But, overall, good job.

Prices while not cheap cheap, are fair and decent, portions are generous

Appears that The Mouse will be making regular visits with this doc for a bit … if there’s street parking, maybe more orders from Hoy Tin in the future. Maybe ginger chicken, minute chicken noodles … πŸ™‚

Enjoy. Eat well.

Found a new (to me anyway) photo editor: picmonkey. It has a collage function! Awesome.

But first, “brunch”.

Vegetarian Burrito

Vegetarian Burrito

From here.Β Hapa rice (that’s brown and white rice mixed, get it? πŸ™‚ ), pesto, carrots, slaw, tomatoes & green onions. Not bad. Definitely would order again. Perfect as a light meal.

Picked up half a roast duck on the way home. Next couple of days will be kinda long, roast duck, easy supplement to meals (lunch and dinner). From The Cat’s current favorite place.
