Last week, I found myself in Greenhills to pick up my new pair of eye glasses. I was a bit bored with the food in Greenhills already as I have eaten in most of the restaurants there. I needed something new and something different. Checking out blogs and what not, I decided to pay Wilson St. a visit. I have never been to Wilson St. for food or any business. Heck, it was my first time to actually pass there.
I really didn't know what to expect of the place but according to my mom, this area houses a lot of restaurants. It has been a start up place for people getting into the food business.
Enter Mu Noodle Bar.
When we were driving along Wilson St., we passed by the place, so we had to back tract a little. Parking is a problem here because I believe it can only accommodate 3-4 vehicles tops. The place looked like a small authentic Japanese restaurant. If you have watched Rurouni Kenshin, you would know what I mean. The difference is that this restaurant serves Chinese food and that they have wooden chairs and counters rather than soft pillows and low tables. I mean that is the vibe that I got. From this, I felt that I was in for a treat.
Of course I didn't know what to order. Good thing the menu was only 3 pages long. Our server said that the ones with the pictures are all their best sellers.
So for just my mom and I, we ordered a lot!!!!
|Dong Bo Buns (220 Php)
|Red Curry Lamb (240 Php)
|This is one huge bowl!
|Xo Raddish Cake
|3 cup chicken (220 Php)
|Oyster Cake (180 Php)
We also ordered some noodles to go. I only tasted the black hofan (180 Php). Since I rarely eat hofans, I was a bit hesitant with this dish. But, one bite and the flavors kicked me in the head. This single bite led me to eat the entire dish by my self (sorry bro just be happy with the leftovers!). It was that tasty!
When we finished, the place was already filled up. With a small seating capacity of around 40, I am glad that they opened another one in Glorietta 2 Mall.
Will I go back? Of course. Anyway budget around 500 Php per hungry person but around 300 Php for light eaters.
