Antipolo is known for its famous suman and kasoy and also for the innumerable private resorts. It’s just lately that I have discovered Crescent Moon Cafe and Pottery Studio, located in Brgy. Dalig, Antipolo City. Upon entering the gate, you will feel the homey and relaxing ambiance (perfect for nature lovers!).
It’s just as short walk from there to the restaurant/cafe. The staff are attentive and professional– they will usher and assist you to make sure that you are comfortable. What makes it distinct to the other cafes/restaurants is that they offer uncommon dishes– Yes! In fact, it’s my first time to try the Alagao Salad (appetizer) and it was really undescribable. (There will be a separate post about this Alagao Salad Experience).
This video features their lunch buffet dishes. The buffet is only offered during weekends- P500 during Saturdays and P600 during Sundays. The cafe is open from Wednesday to Sunday from 9am to 5pm. Their menu is posted in their Facebook page so you can take a look in advance.
This one tasted like the ginataang gulay because of the coconut milk. I liked the spicy taste of it.
I super liked the suman because it’s already sweetened and I liked the ripe mango as well– perfect combination!
We also had the chance to observe their workshop and participate as well– they offer variety of workshops but when the day I visited, they had the Musical Instrument Making Workshop at the Glass Bar. It was really an amazing experience because I have observed how they create the instruments and i think as an educator, especially if you are teaching MAPEH in Junior High, you should also be knowledgeable in creating instruments (the students will appreciate it more if you will be the one to demonstrate it or let them experience how to create it instead of just watching the video. (A separate post will be written about my experience in this workshop)
