Bed weather = piping hot soup and Mogu Tree was at the top of our head.

For this round hubby got the Pork Chicken Stock which tasted like the broth of instant noodles but a notch better. I was a bit hesitant when the Tonkotsu Shoyu landed on the table. I feared that there was soap in my soup with all that bubbly action. The broth wasn't so bad for ramen. We liked this better than the other one.

I can't remember which noodles I picked and all the toppings that went into the bowl but my forever constants would be the Mozzarella Cheeseball and Crab Claw. The display looked more abundant than our previous visit and they even refilled while I was constructing our bowls. I wish the servers were more knowledgeable of their food. They couldn't explain the difference between the ramen noodles.

The Hakaw had an after taste which I couldn't figure out. I've had better.

Servers were attentive and pleasant.

Just like before, we requested for bowls so we could cool down the soup. The serving container kept our food really hot throughout the meal.

Mogu Tree is ideal for quick, tasty and affordable soup dinners especially during Baguio weather.

Its my first time to try this mini restaurant (3 tables inside). The noodle set is affordable and the soup base tastes good.First you choose your noodles then 4 dumplings and then the server will get your bowl after you choose your soup base.They also have other claypot rice toppings if you don't like noodles.They also have a variety of drinks.

The claypot kept the soup hot even after I finished my noodles.We ordered laksa based soup and pork chicken stock. Was happy to see that there's fish roe ball, Its like a popping boba with lots of fish eggs inside and its really tasty and addicting.

I hope this shop would continue to survive because they were the only one who is left in this arcade near beverly hills subdivision. Even the Shoppesville grocery here closed down.

Mogu Tree is located in Beverly Hills Subdivision Antipolo City. Just right beside its entrance gate is a small compound and you'll see Mogu Tree on the left side as you get inside the vicinity. The place is small but spacious and was never crowded. So, if you just want to sip a hot soup on a cold weather or you just want to relax in a cozy place outside, this is the right place for you.

What's so fun about Mogu Tree Noodle House is that you can fully customize what you want in your hot pot. Starting from what noodles you want. Then selecting up to 4 toppings that you desire. Then finally, choosing the soup base to complete your hot pot. Isn't that awesome?! :)

I love the new flavor. Tonkotsu Shoyu is just a balance of milky and flavorful soup. The Laksa still didn't disappoint and my friends are still happy as they take a sip. To top it off, it was affordable at less than 500 pesos. You'll definitely enjoy your stay.

6thStop #AntipoloFoodCrawl

Among all the restaurants we've visited,  i was really excited for Mogu Tree.  Why?  I've dined x number of times at their Lilac branch and i love their laksa.

The Antipolo branch is 10 times better than Lilac.  It looks new and has excellent lighting.  This is the same size as the sister branch,  i count 6 tables.  Same set-up as the other branch... Care for some do-it-yourself noodles?  Yes please!

Mechanics.

Choose your Noodles
Pick your Topping (4 pieces)
Select your Broth

¶ Pork Chicken Stock (Php 168)
¶ Laksa (Php 198)
¶ Tonkotsu Shoyu (Php 210)

Sounds easy?  Not really,  especially on the Toppings Part.  Waves of indecisiveness will hit you point blank when you see the myriad choices they offer. 

The wonderful people of MT made our lives 10x easy by making the tough call.  They took cake of the picking x choosing.  And yes,  laksa is one of them. 

Grub

¶ Laksa
¶ Pork and Chicken Noodle Soup
¶ Pork Asado
¶ Spareribs with Taosi
¶ Chicken Feet
¶ Hakaw
¶ Pork Siomai

I will only review Laksa as this is the only one i tried.  Let us start this with a lil history lesson

Laksa is a popular spicy noodle soup in the Peranakan cuisine, which is a combination of Chinese and Malay cuisine. Laksa consists of rice noodles or rice vermicelli with chicken, prawn or fish, served in spicy soup, either based on rich and spicy curry coconut milk, or based on sour asam (tamarind or gelugur). It can be found in Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and Southern Thailand.

Source: Wikipedia

It will not come as a surprise if i tell you that i love MT's laksa.  The broth is the star of the show.  It is rich and very flavourful.  I taste coconut milk,  curry and tamarind.  The flavor is balanced,  you get to taste all of the elements.  The only beef i had is that it is not spicy enough.  

The rest of the gang had the same sentiments about the laksa.  You may take "bias"  of the table. 

Mogu Tree is a sweet ending to the Food Crawl.  A bowl of steaming,  flavorful laksa to seal the deal.

Thank you,  Mogu Tree for your generosity.

Peace Out!

Although i'm not a soup person, i agreed to drive here since i was feeling under the weather. They offer Claypot Rice Dishes, Dimsum and Make Your Own Noodle Soup. We went for the soup.

Hubby's Laksa was very flavorful. Spice level was tolerable. I would have eaten this with rice if i were up for it. Hubby couldn't remember what items he picked though.

Since i didn't feel like eating something with gata, i chose the Plain Noodle Soup w/ Hong Kong Egg Noodles, Mozzarella Cheese Ball, Lobster Ball, Crab Claw and Seafood Bun. Soup was tasty, not too salty. Noodles cooked just right. The Lobster Ball and the rest of the fillings tasted pretty much the sane. I loved the Mozzarella Cheese Ball!

One order is pretty heavy and filling. They gave extra bowls where we transferred our soup to cool. The serving bowl kept our food warm throughout the meal. Condiments like soy sauce and chili garlic were available as well.

Our side order of Pork Shrimp Siomai wss good too.

I would probably go back if hubby was craving for soup and i'd get rice or dimsum for me.

*indoor area fits a tight 16pax
**since the place is small, you will hear the conversations of everyone
***they display a few pieces of each item only and if you're lucky they still have more in the kitchen. A few things ran out that night.
