It all started with Kuya Roy's PM regarding a nice little Phablet. Nung pumasyal ako sa kanila, walang tao at sarado pa yung shop. So kay General na lang ako pumasyal. Tinawagan nya si kuya Roy and maya-maya lang eh 3 na kami dun for a late morning chikahan. At a quarter to 12, nagkayayaan na ng lunch. And since may standing invitation si General na kumain ng noodles, pumunta kami sa MOGU TREE
sa Lilac St. for a different noodle experience. On the way dinaanan namin si sir Benj sa bahay nila (kasi hindi sumasagot sa telepono!) kaya naging 4 na kami. Nasaan na ba si Kuya Mar?
Good! You start out by choosing your noodle variant, then selecting 2 to 3 toppings, and choose your soup base. I went with the clear soup (the other one was laksa) and I have to say it was just nice for me. Not too salty, and not spicy either. It went well with my chosen noodle. They also had rice dishes on offer, but we went for noodles since that was the store's specialty.
Their place was a bit narrow with only a few tables downstairs. We went upstairs where there were more tables for us. There was a big 2HP aircon that quickly cooled the upstairs area. Nice. The bowls were sturdy and you get to eat with a provided bowl stand. As for the furniture, they weren't padded but VERY sturdy. Ambiance? A mix between an old chinese resto and trendy karinderya. No jazz music to soften the mood or anything like that. Just noisy people eating their noodles. Ahahahahaha.
P150 for a big serving of noodles and 3 toppings. Hmm.. Not bad especially if you're looking for a good alternative to Tamagoya
. I forgot to take note of how much the rice dishes were, so I'll leave you guys to find out for yourselves. Ehehehehe.
Sir Roy, Godai, and Sir Benj
