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.

Notice anything missing? Turkey? Stuffing? Pumpkin pie? 364 days out of the year, I would have fully enjoyed this spread. But yesterday, and only yesterday, have to have turkey with all the accoutrements. Call it tradition, culture, something. Everyone was happy.

Enjoy. Eat well.
