Working late, The Mouse at church, The Cat at her office. No kitchen time whatsoever. Last night’s dinner, a shot in the dark.
Golden Pork Classic with Seasoned Egg
Can’t see the noodles?
Thin, nice chew texture. Broth is … awesome! One of the best (if not the best) The Cat’s tasted for a long time.
Tokyo “Monja” Salad
Shredded cabbage, corn, ao nori, soft-boiled egg, red pickled ginger, char siu, mayonnaise, and curry powder, topped with bonito flakes. Not bad. Everything but the kitchen sink. Taste reminded me of something but couldn’t put my finger (or tongue) on it.
T.K.G. “Tamago Kake Gohan”
Rice, chili oil, soft-boiled egg (coddled?), soy sauce, green onions, bonito flakes (The Cat’s bowl).
“Salt Char Siu” Bowl
Rice, “cha” siu (salt seasoned, not soy sauce flavored), green onions, sesame seeds. Paws up! Even though the meat wasn’t “char siu”. Happy Mouse. :)
Golden Pork Bun
Bao bun, braised pork belly, topped with a teriyaki glaze and sweet aioli with mustard. Tender, fatty (just ever so slightly), very porky flavor (not overwhelmed by sauce). A bit pricey. Maybe reserved for special treats. Still, last night, to try, a happy Mouse.
The Cat paw stamped her approval to return soon. :)
Back to the grind today (both The Cat and The Mouse). :(
Enjoy. Eat well.
