Mar 21: Popeye’s Fried Chicken; Brown Rice Congee with Shiitake Mushrooms and Greens


Foodie Philip was in Burbank in the middle of the day, so the Tuesday special at Popeyes called.

  • Each two piece pack is $1.95 with tax
  • Half the Large Red Beans and Rice is $2.19 with tax, per serve.

Lunch today cost $4.14 per serve.


For a period we had congee quite regularly then we got tired of it, as happens, but after more than a year, it was time to give it another go with Brown Rice Congee with Shiitake Mushrooms and Greens.

We substituted the remaining bok choy for the greens, and opted for a poached egg(s).

  • The mushrooms were $2.79 or $1.40 per serve
  • Brown rice adds 50c per serve
  • Stock adds $1.00 per serve
  • The bok choy was $1.99 but we used the second half, or 50c per serve
  • Add 35 for garlic, ginger and seasoning
  • Eggs add an average of 75c per serve.

Dinner tonight was very satisfying with good flavor, and cost $4.50 per serve.
