After THE YAPPY BUNCH's weekend staycation at HYATT, CITY OF DREAMS, we drove over to San Juan to meet with my family as I will be giving them a birthday treat. There was really no other place we had in mind than MR. SUN MOON (formerly SUN MOON GARDEN) because it has been and always be my family's favorite when it comes to Chinese food. My siblings and I practically grew up there because we celebrated all our special occasions over hot bowls of lomi and sizzling saucy grub.
So for my special 40th lunch, since we were running late, I told my sister to go ahead and order what they liked. I guess they took my "advise" deep into their hearts and stomachs because they really ordered EVERYTHING that they have been craving for in MR. SUN MOON even if we have all "old age" tummy capacity. He he he he he he!
Not to worry though because if there's take home leftover food that we don't mind having the next day, it's MR. SUN MOON dishes. Every spoonful is indeed a trip down our family memory lane. And now, my 40th birthday celebrations will be a part of it!
I know, I know, that your eyes (and brain) are already be fed up with my 40th bday yaddah yaddah, but this is the last I promise.
Until of course, the Chinese Adonis' birthday celebrations which is coming right up! Tee Hee!!!
MR. SUNMOON SEAFOOD HOUSE!
MR. SUNMOON is located in front of Wagyu Stone House grill in Greenhills shopping centre and is beside a gas station.
The restaurant has a limited space and with several tables. Good thing that I haven't slapped butts with other diners when it is a full house.
NOT that I mind if it's WWF Champion Roman Reigns. Har de har har!
We're finally here!
Le muhMAH and le puhPAH!
Kuya Jon and Ate Jit!
Karen and Kuya Jay!
Mati and Rocio...
Now you know who she takes after...
Me and the Yubkers!
Andrei and his new favorite Minecraft book!

MR. SUNMOON menu!
When I arrived, they were already attacking a plate of MR. SUNMOON seaweeds with century egg (P250.00). This may look like a pitiful dish but I happily scraped it clean before my brothers and sister got more.
I've long wanted to try MR. SUNMOON's Buddha soup since TVJ love this dish so much. My family was in the mood for something else so I just ordered a cup of it (P300.00) to try.
My family passed on the expensive Buddha soup to fill their tummies with this!
MR. SUNMOON Lomi (P210.00)!
MR. SUNMOON clams in Spicy Sauce (P230.00)!
Mati got the most of this platter. I wouldn't be surprised if soon he'll be ordering it for himself alone.
Whenever we're in MR. SUNMOON, I make it a point to order a sizzling plate of Pork Tenderloin (P350.00)! It has been one of my favorites the first time I took a bite on its very tender meat. The aroma of the sizzling sweet/spicy sauce is enough to make even the most dedicated dieter, drool! Scoop that hot, thick sauce over your rice and you've (almost) got yourself a complete meal! He he he he he he he!
Whenever we're at MR. SUNMOON, we never fail to order our favorite Salt and Pepper Fried Squid! Every time we have it, the squid is still very soft to the bite. I also eat it with the fried garlic and peppers for that much needed ooomph! We would never get tired of this!!! Very addicting if you ask me.
For my extra long life, my sister ordered the MR. SUNMOON Miki Bihon (P230.00). This was saucy, savory, and slurp-worthy! I loved the strips of liver that added more meatiness to the noodles!
My brother ordered a bowl of his favorite MR. SUNMOON Patatim (P350.00) to taste and take out. Ha ha ha ha ha! I'm not really fond of sweet entrees so this is my least favorite dish in MR. SUNMOON. My brother loves it though and would marry it if he can. Hee he he he he!
Of course, we would never forget an order of MR. SUNMOON Crab Foo Yong (P320.00)!
Unlike other foo yongs, MR. SUNMOON's version has a lot of crab meat, egg, and other meaty goodness. In other restaurants you would get more veggies than what you paid for.
The sauce for this Foo Yong is too awesome to ignore too!
Some people would prefer plain rice to better complement the rich and succulent sauces. But not us! Our motto is BRING ON THE FLAVORS baby! So we got the medium Shanghai Fried Rice (P280.00)!!!
ERICJAZ FOODIES with family in MR. SUNMOON seafood house!
Me first of MANY plates!!
Yep! We got a lot of leftovers. Unfortunately, we don't eat as much as we used to. Even if I wanted to gobble some more food, my very tight belt (and stretch marks) won't let me.
As for Andrei, he immediately finished his food so he could go back to reading. Such a welcome change from his usual Minecraft videos!
BURP! That was such a delicious lunch! I'm so happy to end my birthday week with my family and awesome comfort food. MR. SUNMOON never fails to satisfy us in so many levels!
Now let's wrap those leftovers for take out! Lunch tomorrow is again "on me". He he he he he he!
