Shoyu Pork

This week’s one-pot. Actually this week there were two-pots.

First, shoyu pork.

Pork Belly, Par Boiled, Washed

Pork, dark soy, ginger, Crown Royal Apple, water, salt, brown sugar, star anise.

Into the Pot

The Cat threw in green onions from our outside pots.

The Mouse threw together something to accompany the pork.


Wood-ear fungus, dried shiitake mushrooms, dark soy, sugar, salt.

Dark Matter

Good thing The Cat took white rice in her bento for contrast. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Saw this place on former co-worker’s Facebook:


For geezers like The Mouse and The Cat, used to be the old Yum Yum Tree location.

Lunches are “not sit down service”. Order at the counter, pick-up at the kitchen window, find your own table, take-out boxes and plastic utensils. Dinner (I’m told) is sit down service.

The Cat ordered off of the daily special menu.

“Game Day” Special

First time (except for tempura) The Cat orders a plate with deep fried food (she saw soft shell crab). 馃檪

Shrimp, fish, calamari?, along with the soft shell crab (two!), rice and salad. The Cat liked.

The Mouse ordered:

Portobello Mushroom and Vegetable “Burger”

On taro bun with fries. Well made.

Restaurant also has a poke counter.


Cute ya?

Mussel Poke with Sesame Seed Topping

Jus’ to try. Not bad. 馃檪

The Cat approved a revisit in the future, maybe for dinner? Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Cat came home with a package of fresh okra. The Cat is not so fond of okra, but The Mouse is. Although, The Mouse is more used to working with the frozen variety.

Decided to combine the okra with a week end semi clean out of the refridge.

In the Sink

Okra, celery, tomato.

Sliced all somewhat thin (the okra seeds kept falling out). Into a pan with a bit of smoked pork (also thinly sliced), and water (the okra started to stick to the pot).

Okra Rago没t with Celery, Tomato, Smoked Pork

Not really rago没t, kinda a hybrid saut茅, braise,聽rago没t method. Worked for The Mouse. 馃檪

Enjoy. Eat well.

Jus’ cleaning out the phone.

Bottle of Himalayan Salt

For the food enthusiast co-worker. Not sure if you can see the side but there’s a little wooden spoon attached. Cute ya?

Cinnamon Sweet Bread

Brought in by the same co-worker. Not super sweet (cinnamon, not cinnamon sugar).

Chinese Cold Chicken

From a “hole in the wall” Chinese take-out nearby. Not bad, some dry spots, mostly moist.

Ginger Onion Sauce

The required accompaniment. 馃檪

The Mouse’s Knife Practice

Thinly sliced tomato and matchstick cucumber on whole wheat toast.

Heading to another dinner at Michel’s tonight. Another chef’s choice menu. Funny, we’ve not ordered from the menu yet. Hee hee.

Happy weekend.

Enjoy. Eat well.

First an update. The “no feet soup” did jell just a bit, with the thinnest lay of fat on the top. Not really photogenic, so no picture.

The neighborhood Ruby Tuesday is running a promotion for June, bring in a can of food for the food bank, and the restaurant knocks off $5.00 the check.

Since yesterday was a holiday for The Mouse …

Veggie Trio

Green beans, zucchini, baked potato. The order comes with “all you can eat” salad bar.

The Mouse’s salad bar plate

So, The Mouse, being pake, filled up on the salad bar, and took home the potato and zucchini for another day. Appears The Mouse is not the only one with this strategy, read it in an online food article too. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.
