Restaurant Review: Mozu Cafe

Published on January 31, 2014

Mozu Café has always been a favorite lunch destination of my teammates. I remember it was one of the first restaurants I had tried when I started working at BGC. During the many times that I have been there, I came to love a few dishes. When I finally got the chance to bring Boyet with me at Mozu, I immediately grabbed it.

We had a medical appointment at St. Luke’s Global one Saturday morning. And since my doctor said that it would take a while before she could attend to me, Boyet and I decided to have lunch first. Mozu Café is a different sight on a Saturday afternoon. It is less crowded and more quiet than on a weekday.

I told Boyet that he should not miss trying either the Pork Binagoongan or the Lechon Laing. He settled with the latter.

Lechon Laing is my favorite dish from Mozu! How can you go wrong with lechon kawali or laing? What more if you put them together on a single plate? The lechon kawali is crispy and very flavorful. Dipping it to the sarsa ng lechon will bring you to lechon heaven! The laing is also good. It’s spicy but definitely bearable for those who have a weak heart for spicy dishes. Eating Mozu’s Lechon Laing with only a single cup of rice is a mortal sin! You really can’t go wrong with it.

It was my first time to try their Grilled Liempo. I definitely made the right move. I really didn’t need the sauce that came with it because the liempo is just packed with so much flavors. I appreciate that the liempo has the perfect meat-fat ratio making it moist but not too oily. Even my husband could not help but have a few bites of it.

Aside from the hearty lunch that we had, my husband also got to watch a live telecast of an NBA game. :)) Mozu Café also sells different kinds of cakes and pastries. I was able to try some on my prior visits, but my husband and I were too full to have desserts that day.

We also ordered for a pumpkin soup. But Boyet had to cancel it as it wasn't served before the Lechon Laing and Grilled Liempo. A waiter then approached us to apologize for the mixup. Other than that, service is ok although I had prior experiences when it gets a bit slow during Friday lunch time. Pero balik naman kami ng balik! Because seriously, how can you resist Lechon Laing?!
