Black Saturday was my only day off from work this Holy Week and this is the best time to visit Lilac Street in SSS Village, Marikina City. Mogu Tree is the first restaurant that I visited in Lilac Street and I’m looking forward to visit more restaurants on my next visit.

The concept of the place is simple yet fun: you create your own noodle pot. You choose your noodle type, then choose your toppings, and finally your choice of soup: plain or laksa. The ingredients are nicely arranged in a buffet set-up making it easier for the customers to choose which noodle and topping combo would be enjoyable to their palate.

For your noodles, you can choose from Spinach Noodles, Hong Kong Egg Noodles, Flour Noodles and Ramen Noodles.

For your toppings, you will never be run out of options to choose from as they have a lot of it. There are variety of colorful and mouth-watering toppings to choose from. And you’ll surely get curious how each tastes.  I kept asking the staff which ones are best sellers.

I decided to choose Laksa since I love spicy food. Spinach Noodles for my Noodles. Cabbage Roll, Mushroom Ball and Crab Ball for my toppings.

While waiting for our noodles, I spotted a Chinese delicacy corner by the stairs.

Here comes my order…

Laksa with 3 toppings- Php175.00

Laksa is a coconut-based curry soup. The laksa tasted really goooood. I love the right firmness of the noodles, the crab ball is so flavorful, the juicy mushroom ball, and the interesting cabbage roll. The spiciness is just right.

Mogu also offers short orders, dimsums and beverages. I decided to try their Tsing Tao Beer and Aloe Drink.


Tsing Tao Beer- Php70.00/can

This is the first time I get to drink Tsing Tao. It tastes like Red Horse.


Aloe Drink- Php70.00/500 ml

Aloe Drink is very refreshing and a perfect partner for my laksa.

Overall, It was such a good dining experience! And, I will definitely go back. Why don’t you drop by Mogu Tree Noodle House and share a bowl of soup with someone special.
