The very first Paper Moon restaurant opened in 1977 on a quaint little street in the heart of Milan’s fashion district.
And today, we have the privilege to get a taste of the famous Paper Moon in Manila.
Paper Moon Manila is the first restaurant to be opened in Asia. It’s a lot more swanky than the one in Milan because of its interiors, vast space and breathtaking view.
Plus it has a cigar room, VIP room and a brick oven which was flown in from Milan.
Paper Moon Manila is located on the rooftop level of the prestigious Knightsbridge Residence in Makati and has all of Paper Moon Milan’s signature dishes.
Here’s a glimpse of what we had for our Sunday lunch…
Tartare di salmone marinato con avocado e cetriolo. It’s basically Salmon Tartar with avocado and cucumber. YUM!!!
Mozzarella alla caprese. It’s a staple for us when we eat in Italian restaurants.
Pizza Edi is Tomato, Mozzarella, beef pepperoni, onion and fresh chili pepper. We loved its thin crust!
Pizza quattro formaggi. You can’t go wrong with a four cheese pizza. *Wink*
Ravioli ai formaggi con crema tartufata is basically homemade cheese ravioli with a truffle cream sauce. Definitely a winning combo!
and THIIIIS… we got 2 orders of the Pappardelle Paper Moon. You have to watch this video…
and for dessert…
We love strawberries so we ordered the Tortina all panna e fragole a.k.a. Strawberry Shortcake. haha!
Who doesn’t love chocolate??? This is the Tortino al cioccolato con gelato al coco which is basically a Chocolate fondant with coconut ice cream. You can’t go wrong!
Sunday lunch is the perfect time to bring the kids. It’s not as packed as it is during dinner time. Trust me, with pizza and pasta… they’ll love you for it too. Alana ate almost everything!
And of course, our dining experience was extra special because we spent it with Paper Moon Manila owner himself, Mr. Edi Tekeli. Thank you so much for taking care of us, especially Asher!
