Sapporo Chicken Soup Curry


Last thing he brought back from Japan, Microwavable Chicken Soup Curry


Adding chicken legs and vegetables


I like soup curry better than regular Japanese curry. You can taste more umami and spices but lighter.


I wish chicken has gotten a little burnt, but tastes good and crispy.

Brunch @ The Cheesecake Factory


I got a Cheesecake Factory’s gift card last Christmas and we were finally there for brunch today. When we arrived at 11am, it was not a rush hour yet and we got a nice patio table in front of yacht harbor.


Freshly squeezed OJ ($4.95) for him. Bread was good.


Mine: Chicken Bellagio $16.95
Arugula salad was a bit too salty but it was balanced out with chicken and pasta.


His: Chicken & Avocado Club Sandwich $14.95


It was huge and I had only 1/3 of it and the rest would be my lunch tomorrow.


Initially we were there for cheesecake but got too full. Maybe next time.


Dinner: Curry Rice with Spinach & Egg + Chardonnay


Dessert
