PAPER MOON CAFE, Manila: Are The 20 Layers of Paper Thin Crepes Worth Your Buck?
I know many of you have been to Tokyo, Japan. As there are so many Japanese brands coming here in the Philippines, it’s no surprise that VIVA International Food and Restaurants (VIVA Entertainment is under this umbrella.) also jumped into the food business with Madame Emy Wada’s famous Mille crepe concept, PAPER MOON CAFE. To be honest, while Lady M has opened in Hong Kong, this brand isn’t as widespread in Tokyo as Osaka’s Pablo brand. The latter is also set to open here in Manila by the Suyen Group (/Bench).
For a newbie in the food business, I have to laud VIVA Group of Companies for opening Paper Moon Cafe at such a strategic location in Glorietta, which is right in front of two retail stores, Marks & Spencer and Gap. There’s much foot traffic here and there when you pass by the area. Same goes with their Trinoma branch, where the cakes are attractive option for an after-cinema experience. Anyone with a curious tastebud will no doubt try out the signature Original Mille Crepe cakes by Paper Moon Cafe.
Original Mille Crepe Menu – Original, Mango, Strawberry, Chocolate
Paper Moon Cafe’s Original Mille Crepe is quite costly with the whole 10″ cake priced at P2000, 6″ cake at P1,400, and at P225 per slice. I didn’t really find anything special with the Original Mille Crepe. While it was dainty and refreshing, the lightness of the dessert wasn’t memorable, and it was simply stacks of crepe layered on top of each other. You could probably get more out of your buck with the 3″ mini cake at P350 rather than getting a slice.
I would recommend getting the Chocolate, Strawberry, or the Mango flavor instead of the original, if you really want to give it a shot.
Paper Moon Cafe’s slice of cakes are worth a try and so is their cappuccino, the light dessert enough to whisk away strong flavors from your lunch or dinner entrees. But other than its spot-on location, there’s not much key takeaway at Paper Moon Cafe.
