Among many restaurants in the newly- renovated wing of Glorietta, MU Noodle Bar is an eye candy.
With lavish interiors and dim lighting, everyone who passes by just could not help but be curious.
The interiors are carefully planned with an array of both high and low tables and chairs, carefully chosen high-rise and mid-rise lamps strategically placed on the wooden decorated cieling.
The Menu of MU Noodle Bar concentrates on Starters, Short Orders and of couse, the speciality Noodle Soup.
As I scout the orders of people surrounding our table, every table has a bowl or two of the noodle soup. Getting a hint of its size that is big enough for two, I decided to order just one bowl for me and JP to share. We were not frustrated.
We equally loved the presentation and taste of the BEEF Noodle Soup (Php 220) we ordered. One has a choice between thick (udon style) or thin noodles and Miso (Japanese soup) or Soy based (the waiter said it was the specialty) soup. We went for thin noodles and soy based soup.
The soup arrived straight from the stove (I suppose). It was still very hot and obviously boiling. Once the soup bowl touched our table, the aroma of authentic Chinese noodles wrapped us. Pretty like the smell of Hong Kong noodle houses or authentic Chinese restaurants found in culturally rich alleys. Smells and tastes sooo good.
The soup was rich, as what JP said after his first sip. And the next best thing I can remember, the beef meat was so tender it literally cuts into pieces in the boiling soup.
JP has the habit of ordering food that are more than enough to feed us both. He orders and we eat like kings and queens. After the soup, we were served the Appetizer: Chilled Tofu (Php 160), MU Baked Oyster Cake (Php 180) and Kaw Chay Rice (Php 70).
The Chilled Tofu was yummier than I expected. The plate had a generous serving of tofu slices (around 10 portions) each portion with a surprise of Century Eggal slice in the middle. It was topped with Pork Floss shreds and sweet sauce. Delicious!
I honestly think that for a Starter, finishing a plate is already filling. It could then be shared by 3 or 4 persons to be a light appetizer.
Of all the food we ordered, I fell inlove (at first sight and even after) with the Baked Oyster Cake. The presentation was lovely. It looks expensive really but you’ll be surprised that a dish which looks so glorious and tastes so good like that is just 180 php! I am a cheese person. I probably fell inlove with the dish because apart from it having oysters + it was baked + cheese ontop = heaven. ♥
JP and I walked out of MU Bar with bulging bellies and Happy wallets. We even have a bag to go of the Oyster Cake we couldn’t finish. SULIT!!
