Local item on Ruby Tuesday menu, story goes franchise owner put item on the menu in honor of his friend, Norman.

Norman’s Saimin

Roast pork (The Mouse tasted a little smoke too 🙂 , fishcake (kamaboko), and two dumplings (probably frozen). Other choice was won ton from Kin Wah Chop Suey but, Noman’s Saimin was on a flash sale. 🙂

Oh, also tried the honey buns bought from H Mart over the weekend.

Honey Buns

Toaster oven 300 degrees, ten minutes.

Bite View

A slightly sweet filling. Actually very good. Not too sweet, very smooth texture (no fiber). The Mouse would buy again. 🙂

Be safe, eat good.

The Mouse saw this in the grocery store and wanted to try try. Possible “stocking stuffers” for Christmas. Sun Noodles also makes ramen variety but generally, The Mouse’s favorite is saimin.


Package recommends 2 servings but for The Mouse, servings is more like 4 servings.

The Mouse “cooked” the saimin according to package directions, more just warming and loosening up in hot liquid. As usual, The Mouse used very little of the soup packet, too much sodium.

The Mouse’s Saimin

Texture was good, more yellow than S&S or Okuhara brands. The Mouse is still loyal to the older brands but Sun Noodles is a good contender.

The Mouse added leftover kalua pork, popcorn chicken, cucumber strips, wakame, a little lemon pepper (which contains salt) to taste. Mmm!

A few of our “nice list” will be getting packages of the ramen. 🙂

Be safe, eat good.

The Cat wanted to eat Okinawan cuisine. Utage it is. Understandably, prices has increased, quantity a little less, still good, sorta. The Mouse had to find a way to eat good but still be reasonably priced.

Kids menu, a slight upcharge for not being under 12 years old. Sigh. But instead of extra charge for complete meal, the kids meal includes drink and dessert, just smaller portion. Just right amount for The Mouse.

Hamburger with Gravy, Keiki Sized, Small Saimin

The Mouse added a small saimin. Total cost still cheaper than adult sized ala carte. Hee hee.

Miso Soup, Green River

The miso soup was The Cat’s.

Coffee “Jello”, Coffee Ice Cream

The coffee “jello” was due to leftover coffee, waste not. Hee hee. The ice cream, The Cat’s.

Pumpkin Crunch

The Cat’s new gotta try dessert, season and all. Hee hee.

Oh yeah, The Cat got her bittermelon with shoyu pork.

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.
