Mozu Cafe is a popular diner that people on office attires and work around Bonifacio Global City especially those near Burgos Circle go to during lunch time. At night, this lunch hotspot turns into a hangout zone for people who want to have a few drinks and chat with friends. A friend recommended that I try Mozu Cafe because the food is not only good but also reasonably priced.
Mozu Cafe offers Filipino food made even better. They have breakfast meals, salads, and rice dishes. They also have a large selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. I don’t recommend Mozu Cafe if you are looking for a quiet place to dine. Since it somewhat turns into a bar during the night, expect cheering and shouting by people who are drinking and just having a good time. But if you’re looking for a place to hang around, be awesome, and have a blast, Mozu Cafe is a great place to stay.
We were really hungry when we arrived at Mozu Cafe. Since me and my peeps weren’t very familiar at this side of town, we kind’a walked in circles among office buildings before we found this resto. Our search was worth it because what my friend has said was true. Food is good and so is the price.
We ordered our food and while waiting, these three lovely ladies approached us and offer San Miguel’s Premium Beers. These are the Cerveza Negra (Php 60 per bottle), Premium All Malt (Php 70 per bottle), and Super Dry (Php 65 per bottle). We didn’t have any plans of drinking but I guess it’s hard to say no, right Basti?
To start with, we had taste test of the three beers with these samplers. Among the three, I liked the Cerveza Negra because of its caramel-like scent and flavor. But if you don’t like a bitter and burnt after taste, this beer might be overwhelming for you.
For a lighter beer flavor, the All Premium Malt is the best choice. It isn’t as bitter as other regular beers.
If you want a smooth beer, the Super Dry should be your choice. It’s easy to drink with the right beer kick.
We really didn’t plan on drinking because I even made an advance order for a Chocolate Milkshake (Php 140). I can no longer cancel it so I had no choice but to drink it as well. Haha. The drink was good, it just didn’t match the Cerveza Negra I drank afterwards.
Our orders started coming. I got the Fish Fillet Au Gratin (Php 185) with a delicious, slightly sweet sauce. The fish was soft and very tasty. It is topped with grated cheese. This dish was a fantastic surprise for my taste buds.
Basti got the Lechon Laing (Php 175). Basically, it was cuts of fried lechon lying on top of laing. Laing is a popular dish in Bicol region made from gabi (taro) leaves, coconut milk, and lots of red chili pepper. However, this dish is not really spicy.
Isabel got Baby Back Ribs (Php 180). The flavor and the sauce was really but it was a little disappointing because the meat doesn’t fall off the bones. It’s a bit tough to cut and a lot of meat stayed stuck on the bone.
Pamela got the Crispy Pork Binagoongan (Php 170) which is slices of pork cooked with shrimp paste. It is served with large slices of eggplant and mango salsa.
We split a fifth plate and it was Bagnet Salad (Php 175). It’s crispy deep fried pork with mango salad and shrimp paste on the side. I love how crispy and tasty the pork is!
To cap off the dinner, I tried the highly recommended Frozen Brazo (Php 135). I love Brazo so Frozen Brazon, why not? This cake definitely satisfied my sweet tooth. It was layer of meringue, sweet filling, vanilla ice cream, and graham crust. Now, the sweet buzz has ended! Superb!
If you go to Mozu Cafe, you can forget everything else but not the Frozen Brazo. Try it.. Pretty please..
Spread some awesome..ness..
