FOOD: Mooon Cafe

We are at Cyberzone, SM North Edsa Annex again last Sunday still looking for the perfect laptop that will suit our needs and budget. We wanted a laptop that can pass the requirements of the software we're using but at the same time budget-friendly. Acer would be a good choice for us. Mac will forever be the top choice but that is something overboard right now...maybe someday. *wishes*

After scouring two floors of tech gadgets stores, we're itching to have our dinner and rest our tired feet. Do you also get annoyed with how SM Annex escalators were placed? I mean you have to turn around again just to get to the next one. Aaaargh! Good thing there are now many good food choices there. We're torn between President's Tea House and Mooon Cafe. I know the former is better but we are not feeling Chinese that time. And the latter has a very inviting ambience.

Description from their Facebook Fan Page
"Mooon Cafe is a mexican inspired eating place. The menu is typically international cuisine but with more focus on Mexican fare and the interior is reminiscent of Mexican cantina. Mooon Cafe has certainly earned a reputation for serving great food."

I got curious with big paper fans hanging on their ceiling and their mini-waterfalls too. It really has that Mexican vibe inside.

Take a peek at their kitchen..if you could!
And their cute salt and pepper.

We just want to have our dinner done so we head directly to their main entrees.

Pork Belly PhP 149
Grilled marinated Pork belly with buttered vegetables and rice. Served with native sauce.

A close-up look
Nothing extraordinary. That's it. Just grilled pork belly. Vegetables obviously are the frozen ones. Their rice isn't good. I mean our rice is way, way better than this! And may I ask if this is their native sauce, soy sauce???

Fish Mozarella Melt PhP 189
Deep fried fish fillet topped with melted mozzarella cheese, sauteed chopped tomatoes and served with garlic rice.

This is my order and the waitress said it would took 20 minutes to cook and I agreed but it took 30 minutes or more and Hubby is half-way his meal. I'm disappointed so it better be good! But again another so-so. Fish is bland for me and there's more batter than the fish itself. I hate when restaurants do that so as to make the dish look bigger! Tomatoes aren't sauteed as opposed to their description.

Watermelon Shake PhP 59

There's more ice and sugar rather than the fruit juice. Nonetheless, it's refreshing.

Coke Zero in Can PhP 35
Extra Garlic Rice PhP 25

Taste ☺☺
Price ☺☺☺
Interior ☺☺☺☺
Service ☺☺

As you can see, we were disappointed on how our orders taste. Not sure if we didn't order the right stuff or maybe it is just the branch in particular. Their staffs aren't attentive too knowing that the restau isn't full that time. Wanna know why? Because they're having their dinner too together with the customers and they're so noisy chitchatting with each other. Oh my! This is opposed to good raves they're getting in their Cebu branches. Maybe we should explore other items in their menu next time. If we'll decide to try it out again.. :( Anyhoo, do you have suggestions?

  1. seems like a cozy place and food looks inviting. at tatlo talaga ang O nya hehe :)

  2. Aww, I was expecting the food to taste better. Tsk-tsk.

    Re: I don't think St. Ives Brightening scrub can whiten the skin. This contains salicylic acid hence it is good for exfoliating the skin but not in whitening the skin. I just used it twice though. I don't know if I will use this again because I already resorted to chemical peels.

    Lots of love,

  3. @Ibyang: Interior is really nice but the food we had is so-so. Cebu's branch is better from what I've read on reviews.

    @Golden: Okay, thanks for the heads up on St. Ives dear.

    Yeah, I guess we better try other dishes on their menu.

  4. wow it looked so enchanting. :)
    I feel like trying the watermelon shake. it's so pretty. :)

    Anyway, just dropped by to personally invite you (and your other friends) to join the group date :)
