First time for The Mouse (second time for The Cat). The Mouse watched the commercials for years, branch recently opened accessible to The Mouse and The Cat. The Mouse had to try the famous unlimited soup and salad.

Breadsticks and salad. The Mouse loves the bread, soft with just enough chew texture. Mmm. Salad was good too, house salad.

Minestrone soup. Four choices of soup, but two had dairy. The Mouse passed on the two soups with dairy, although he had lactase enzyme pills, he has to pick his battles. Hee hee.

The Mouse tried the other soup, beans with ground meat. dunno the name of the soup. Not bad. Overall, The Mouse preferred the minestrone.

The Cat’s “gotta try” dish at Italian themed restaurants is eggplant parmesan.

The Cat’s order came with a side of spaghetti. The Cat is funny, she likes eggplant parmesan but most times, there is too much cheese on the top. The Mouse thought that was the whole point? Oh well, The Cat still enjoyed it.

Dessert recommended by the server:

Tiramisu. The Mouse liked (took many lactase pills just before, picking battles). The Cat wanted a little more coffee flavor but still thought dessert was good.

Stay safe and well.

The Mouse being The Mouse, took the “garnish” from the two appetizer plates, “waste not, want not”. Hee hee.

Dish was a little tame for The Mouse, not enough heat. The Mouse added the extra marinara sauce from the mozzarella and black pepper.

The Cat’s order. She was going to order the sweet potato ravioli but had to have long noodles last night (ancient Chinese tradition).

Spaghetti and Meatballs

The Mouse’s order. Try try. Not bad.

Both The Cat and The Mouse took home “doggy” (or more appropriately kitty and mousey) bags for lunch the next day.

Dessert was free from JJ2 Bakery. Any single serve dessert.

One of the better tiramisu lately. Moist, chocolate, a little bit of coffee.

Years ago, there was a hotel restaurant that half the menu was “Italian” and half the menu was “Chinese”. Go figure. But, in our opinion, they made the best tiramisu. Moist, full of chocolate and coffee flavors, yum! Whether authentic or not, we didnʻt care. We liked it.

Alas, several years ago they hotel changed its concept and the restaurant is no more. Neither is the tiramisu.:(

Since then, there has been no substitutes that came close. A frozen tiramisu from Costco, of all places, came close (although very distantly), but itʻs no longer sold at Costco.

To the present, New Yearʻs eve dinner. The Italian cafe up the street, tried their tiramisu, even though our server recommended the cheesecake.

It was … okay. The Sinéad O’Connor song was playing in my mind (Nothing Compares to You). Hee hee.

IMO, not enough coffee, chocolate, and liquor flavors.

We were full after dinner (Chicken Pomodoro and Gnocchi Primavera) that we took most of the tiramisu home.

So, for next dayʻs after lunch “snack”, where a nap would be perfectly appropriate (hee hee), I “sprinkled” (read loaded up) the leftover tiramisu.

"Drunken" Tiramisu

“Drunken” Tiramisu

A “little” bit of Kahlúa coffee liqueur, and vanilla Jim Beam, just to “moisten” the tiramisu. Hee hee hic.

Much better after the tiramisu “thirst” was “quenched”. Hee hee

The Mouse settled down for a nice new year nap. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.
