Asahi Grill. Their history is confusing to The Mouse. They started in a bowling alley. After that, the history gets confused for The Mouse. Browsing online menu. Omurice and Okinawan bitter melon stir-fry. Try try.

Turns out online was not updated. No omurice. 😦

The Mouse ordered steak stir-fry instead.

Steak Stir-Fry

A happy substitute. Too many onions for The Cat.

The Cat went with the bitter melon stir-fry.

Bitter Melon Stir-Fry

The Cat liked.

Both orders came with choice of mac salad or tossed greens. 🙂

The Mouse continues to search for omurice.

Be safe and well.

Oxtail Ramen

Long time ago, there used to be a “diner” in a bowling alley. Great oxtail soup. The bowling alley closed and location became a chain pharmacy.

Nearby the now gone bowling alley, another long time diner closes and the bowling alley diner takes over. Kam Bowl Restaurant.

A lighter option on the menu. Oxtail ramen, not as big as oxtail soup, not as many tail segments, ramen noodles instead of rice. Cheaper too.

Oxtail Ramen

Quickly became one of The Cat’s new favorite.

The Mouse ordered chicken stir-fry. Another “signature” dish of the diner.

Chicken Stir-Fry

Mmm! Lots of veggies. Their sauce is also winner. 🙂


The Cat also “found” another favorite.

Pumpkin Crunch, Jello

Not photogenic, but The Cat liked the pumpkin crunch, the jello mold had a few pieces of canned fruit, bonus. Mmm.

The Cat agreed revisits are necessary. 🙂

Be safe and well.

Unplanned. Original plan was Ruby Tuesday, but the kitchen was short-handed and backed up. Next door to Big City Diner.

Vegetable Stir-Fry, White Rice

Both The Cat and The Mouse order. There is a shoyu-ginger “glaze” but The Mouse squirted a little yellow mustard and ketchup, and a sprinkle of black pepper. Mmm 🙂

Because dinner was healthy, The Mouse balanced with an order of apple pie.

Apple Pie, Whipped Cream on the Side

The Mouse thinks this is the best apple pie. Two puff pastry squares sandwiching a generous scoop of apple pie filing with raisins. Mmm again. 🙂 🙂

Be safe and well.

Time Saver

The Mouse wanted vegetables, specifically a stir-fry. For The Mouse to get all the variety of vegetables and prep/cut-up would be kinda time consuming. Luckily, a nearby diner has a vegetable stir-fry dish with rice.

Vegetable Stir-Fry

The seasoning is ginger, garlic, shoyu. Mmm. There is an option to add protein but The Mouse likes it plain. Portion is enough for at least two servings for The Mouse. Dish is kinda prohibitive for The Cat, some of the vegetable variety are onions and bell peppers (does not play well with The Cat’s digestion). But The Mouse did dig out the jicama to add to her bento.

Stay safe and well.

Across the parking lot from the grocery store The Mouse frequents there is a bar/lounge/dive bar. The Mouse was never interested.

The Mouse was feeling “adventurous”. He thought he saw a sign recently listing their food menu with smoked meat listed. But yesterday, new sign, no smoked meat. Sigh.

However, one of the dishes listed was pork belly with mustard cabbage, a worthy substitute? The Mouse ordered.

Pork Belly with Mustard Cabbage Plate Lunch

Rice came in its own separate container.

Overall, dish was done well. If The Mouse was cooking, he would’ve parboiled the pork belly for a bit to soften and render some of the fat before stir-fry, but no matter, still good, just a bit chewy.

3/4 of the rice and the potato (top left) went into The Cat’s quick jook for dinner.

The Mouse is inspired to try and recreate this one day. Paw up. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.
