MOCA Caffee

MOCA Caffee is on the 3rd floor of MOCA - Museum of Contemporary Art. To be honest I had not known about the place prior to our visit as it seems pretty low key.

The small museum is pretty funky looking and its location can't be more perfect. We spent the morning trying to gasp the concepts of funicular polygon and hyperbolic vault (love Gaudi BTW) we were positively hungry by noon.

The restaurant was deserted, I guess not many people know about it. As quiet as the place was our food took a long time to arrive - the wonderful bread and focaccia saved the day! We were particularly impressed with the individual dips we got.
There is a set lunch deal and for RMB88 we could pick 1 of the salads, pizzas, or sandwiches, together with a freshly squeezed juice. We all went for the deal and here are some of the dishes:
Caesar salad with shrimps.

Mozzarella and tomato salad. I thought it's cheeky that it's classified as lunch given its portion.

Pizza margherita.

Pizza salami with anchovy. A little fishy (duh!). Should have gone for the parma ham one.
We were satisfied with the food overall and we particularly liked the RMB20 discount on the food when we presented our museum entry ticket.
