Mogu Tree Noodle House

It’s my first holiday since I started working! The start of the rainy season was not going to keep me from enjoying this day. So we had a mini adventure at one of my favorite cities ever. Yup, Marikina! Woot.

After visiting the kids at CRIBS we took a cab to Lilac Street, Marikina. The cab ride was awful but that’s not what this post is about so I’ll save that for later.

For those of you who are in to the make-your-own dish restaurants, this is a definite must-try! You get to pick your soup base, type of noodles, and toppings.


You can choose to have 2 or 3 toppings. We each ordered a Laksa noodle soup with three toppings (P175). The two pieces of balls/buns are counted as one topping and one bundle of mushrooms are counted as one as well. Extra toppings are P35 each. The cashier told us that they are no longer serving meat as toppings (yay for me but I don’t think Joel’s happy about it. Haha)

Our orders arrived and they were huge! When we were choosing the noodles they looked so tiny, but we obviously underestimated them. Everything about it was great!

Look at that laksa goodness

The laksa soup more than satisfied my craving. It was hot, spicy, and made with good quality coconut milk. Perfect for the weather! Both the fresh egg noodles and the spinach noodles were good. I personally prefer the spinach noodles because they were thicker (and made with spinach. Lol) but Joel says the egg noodles were better. We enjoyed all of our toppings. My favorite were the enoki mushrooms.

Had to ask for a smaller bowl just to eat it properly

Veg-Tip: not all their toppings may be vegetarian (even if they are called cheese balls) so make sure you ask the employees about them. Stick with the mushrooms if you want to be 100% sure.

They also serve Tsing Tao beer. This big bottle (good for two) is P110 and the canned one is P70. Other Chinese goods are also available here. 🙂

The interior was simple and fairly straightforward. Big groups may have a hard time finding enough space. I’m not sure if it is possible to have reservations but you can find their contact information below.

1. Cab
We took a cab and it was a wrong move because our cab driver took the long way! If you decide to take a cab, make sure you know the way and tell the driver which route you want to take.

2. Jeep/FX to SSS

3. Tricycle from Masinag
