First Bite: Paper Moon

Several months back, social media was raving about this quaint pastry shop known for its crepe cakes. Available in flavors such as original, chocolate, mango and strawberry, kids and adults alike flock to the shop like bees toward honey. But since its first shop was located in Makati, its sweet aroma did not reach me till… it opened a branch in SM Aura.
Hello, Paper Moon!

Finally, after so many months, I could now sink my teeth on those soft, delectable layers of thin crepe!
I was rushing to go home when I made a quick stop here and unfortunately had to wait for my turn as the server was busy with a group of indecisive diners. It gave me some time though to take snapshots of the place.
I wanted to get strawberry because strawberry is LOVE but they ran out of slices and I was not willing to splurge PHP350 for a mini cake. (I was still not sure if it’s worth PHP350 so I hesitated.)

I ended up buying a slice of mango crepe (PHP225) and had it prepped to go. (And the server was nice to accommodate my request to have my slice wrapped first as I really had to go home ASAP.)
After giving my tummy some time to digest my heavy dinner, I started to plate my crepe cake and…

It was delicious. It was like having real mango crepe without the mango cubes.
The top part of the cake was slightly dry and burnt but it was still okay. I loved the middle part best as it had the most mango filling and cream.

But the question is, is it worth PHP225?

Perhaps if you like crepes. Not really if you’re not fond of it.
I’ll definitely try strawberry next time!

Paper Moon is located at 3rd Floor, SM Aura Premier, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City. (It is near Toy Kingdom.)
