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.

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.
