Mini lumpia – White Moon Bar

Mini lumpia - White Moon Bar
Deep fried lumpia with pork filling and served with sweet chili sauce. 280 PHP
White Moon Bar, Manila PHILIPPINES

These were actually labeled “spring rolls” on the menu which is totally weird since we’re in the Philippines! I think everyone knows what lumpia is. Anyway, these were super thin so they didn’t have much filling. It was like eating rolled up, fried lumpia wrappers. Lame. And the sweet chili sauce was straight from the bottle.

Meh, these were dry and boring, but the punchy vinegar was so sour that it kind of made up for the lame calamari. I do love sour things! Hehe.

Cocktails – White Moon Bar

Mojito - White Moon Bar
Mojito. 220 PHP
White Moon Bar, Manila PHILIPPINES

Ugh, I was disappointed overall at how badly Manila made cocktails. They were either super weak or super sugary. Now I like to drink, so you better make my cocktails right, Mr. Bartender! White Moon Bar fell into the crappy cocktail category. All the cocktails were a little off. The mojito was probably the most drinkable. The malibu pineapple was too sweet and the electric ice tea was ridiculously awful. We had to send that one back. I asked if they could make the lychee martini on the not-so-sweet side, so their solution was so mix in olive juice! Lychee + olive juice, can you imagine?! LOL, that tasted like crap too! Omg, where can I get a decent cocktail?! :/
