The Mouse’s favorite “instant” noodles.

Frozen Saimin

Okuhara frozen saimin (the other brand is S&S). The Mouse did not use the soup packet, too much salt, fried fishcake, pork sausage, wakame seaweed, dried parsley, chive, Szechuan pepper, and pinch of salt. Mmm!

Dinner was a “clearance” hunt.

Tuna Sandwich

Toss Salad, Family Size

The Mouse couldn’t resist, 75% off. The drawback is that salads tend to oxidize quickly. The Mouse had to eat and finish immediately. Think internal system cleaning. Hee hee. Still a deal, The Mouse would do it again. 🙂

Be safe and well.

Be safe and well.

The Mouse’s Saimin

Frozen saimin, just dressed up a little.

To frozen saimin, The Mouse added SPAM strips, kamaboko slices, napa cabbage, braised pork. Since The Mouse did not use the soup packet (salt bomb), he flavored the soup with wakame, peanut butter powder, and wasabi paste (not real wasabi).

Ta da!

Trust me, there are noodles underneath. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

Norman’s Saimin

On the menu at the locally owned Ruby Tuesday.

Norman’s Saimin

From the menu: Soy base, roasted pork, steamed dumpling, choy sum, then topped with green onions.

From the bartender: one of the owner’s friends said that he would never eat in his restaurant because there was no saimin. Owner put Norman’s Saimin on the menu in his honor. Pretty good story yeah?

The Mouse thinks especially during this time (and hopefully throughout the year), it is important to remember and value family and friends. 🙂

The Cat had her normal half-rack of baby back ribs.

Mango Kiawe Sauce, Dirty Rice, Broccoli

During this holiday season (your choice), The Cat and The Mouse wish you joy, faith, and all the good.

Stay safe and well.

Established 1935, wow!

Menu Cover

The Mouse ordered old school (small-kid time hanabata days).

Hamburger Deluxe and Small Saimin

Believe it not, the two items are actually listed in the menu as a choice. You don’t have to order ala carte. 😉

The Cat ordered kinda old school.

Nabeyaki Udon

Think of it as the “everything including the kitchen sink” of noodle bowls, shrimp tempura, chicken, egg, kamaboko, etc. The only thing missing would be a teri beef stick. Hee hee.

The Cat saw butterfish on the okazu-ya side of the restaurant, ordered that too to try try.

Butterfish Nitsuke

Butterfish filet simmered in shoyu, sugar, sake/mirin. The Cat really liked and, compared to the fine dining restaurants, inexpensive.

The Cat has approved a return soon. 🙂

Stay safe and well.
