'We are serving primarily mixed Asian  cuisine that is home cooking so most of the dishes you will try here are  family recipes... mostly Chinese but we are trying to steer away from just Chinese so we have Singaporean noodles... we have Malaysian inspired white chicken so we are doing like a mixed Asian concept' - Patrick Sen , Owner
It was what can be dubbed as  gastronomic adventure in Asian food as I found myself gorging on traditional Chinese food in a 51 year old legendary Chinese Restaurant in Quezon City  for our first stop followed by  a second lunch of Asian fare  at  Moon Rabbit Cafe  in a sprawling compound in San Juan

Moon Rabbit Cafe
'There is a legend about the rabbit on the moon. If you look at the full moon  at night you will see  the silhouette of a rabbit . For the Chinese, the rabbit  symbolizes long life because the rabbit is the assistant for the moon goddess..." - Patrick Sen, Owner

There is something about sprawling space, lofty ceiling, huge sliding  doors, floor to ceiling glass windows,    wooden floors  and huge pendant lights that appeal to me.  Moon Rabbit Cafe + Restaurant  vibe is so comfy and homey, you feel like your dining in one of your friend's or  a close relative's house!

The parking lot is huge and I love that the restaurant is sort of elevated . You have to climb a flight of stairs to reach the patio then open the sliding doors to enter  the restaurant inside.

It was like this humongous airy  house converted into a restaurant.

The Food

Chicken Claypot Rice P260

Salted Egg Shrimp P340

Crispy Pork Knuckles P280

White Chicken P310

Sweet & Sour Lapu Lapu P280

Orange Spare Ribs P280

Chilled Tofu P175

Yang Chow Chinese Chorizo P180

Overall,  everything looked beautifully presented and pristine. Visualize a beautiful lady with nary a hair out of place.

Each dish that came out of the kitchen last Thursday were scrumptious albeit in smaller-than-Im-used-to portions. My favorites would have to be the tofu, the crispy pork knuckles, the chorizo rice and dried scallops rice, the fish, orange spare ribs, or practically all the dishes served...haha

The coffee cocktail was also a standout for me. Note that every full moon, cocktails are at buy 1 take 1.

Beautiful ambiance, homey vibe, good food,  interesting cocktails great location, ample parking... what's not to love?

Definitely returning with the handsome hubby and piggery in tow to check out more of the items on their menu.

Moon Rabbit Cafe + Restaurant is located at  2 Ledesma corner F.Benitez Street San Juan City Metro Manila
