Uncle Moe’s: Delicious Specialty Persian Food for Cheap!

Uncle Moe’s: Delicious Specialty Persian Food for Cheap!

 

When in Manila, it’s impossible not to notice the boom of shawarma stalls at every corner. So many different brands are around now, but they all taste fairly the same.

Strolling around the Maginhawa area, I found this little place called Uncle Moe’s Shawarma Hub. Though Persian food was never my favorite, I got curious because of the great reviews from my friends. And in that restaurant with a rather catchy name, I found exactly what I was looking for.

Uncle Moe’s Serves Legit Persian Food

 
Uncle Moe’s is simple with nothing all too fancy, but this comic poster gave it all the attitude that it needs.

Aaaanddd the Kebab Platter! Two sticks of chicken and two sticks of beef. I REALLY loved the Beef Kebab! It actually tasted like legit Persian food, unlike the normal overly commercialized ones. It comes with the tomato salsa that complimented it well. Generously spiced. Distinct taste. I have nothing more to say; just a total must-try. 🙂 Affordable price, too!

The way they serve their Buttered Rice is also amusing. You can’t complain. It’s really buttered rice. You can even request for extra butter for only 8 pesos! To the butter lovers out there: what more could you ask for?

Here is the Chicken Curry. The sauce is not like your normal curry.  Maybe it’s the spices they use or something else. I couldn’t quite figure out what made it so different from the others, but I know that it tasted really good with their rice. When eating at Uncle Moe’s, I suggest to get at least one of your friends to order this. The generous serving of the curry sauce is enough to share. It’s really worth your Php155, especially with the huge chicken portions. 🙂

Moroccan Fish Fillet. It was very different and out of the normal range of the food that I usually eat but I guess it would appeal specially to some types of palates. The sauce had a hint of alcohol in it. The fish was good and with the toppings and sauce mixed together, it tasted weirdly good. Something new to try for those with adventurous taste buds.

Apart from these, they also offer interesting starters like Tapenade, Moutabal, Hummus and even Ox Brain! Though I didn’t get to try them on my first visit, I’m sure they’ll be awesome on my next. Can’t wait to try them, especially the Moussaka Melt people are constantly raving about. Their shawarmas are only priced at a little over a hundred pesos, too. Not bad for having a taste of the legit thing.

Did I mention the unlimited Garlic and Spicy Sauce?  It’s one of the best things about this place. No need to stand or request for another serving of the sauce. The bottle is all yours to splurge on your kebab! 🙂

So there you go. 🙂 Uncle Moe’s is really worth a try. Just the specialty food you won’t find anywhere else, a sweet deal for a budget of below P200. Aside from the one in UP Teacher’s Village that I visited, they also have branches in BF Homes, Paranaque, Julio Vargas, Tomas Morato and Kapitolyo. They’re pretty much all over the city, so when craving for Persian food, go and check out Uncle Moe’s!
