I’ve been to Moka bro couple of times yet never fell in love with it. It’s always packed and people seems to enjoy the food, and I never get why.
The first time I’ve been there was with colleagues. It was the first week I moved to Shanghai and my colleague recommended me the Half & Half, which is half a wrap with salad on the side (RMB 68). Second time I went there with a friend for brunch and had a berry smoothie bowl (RMB 48), and third time I went for brunch as well and had an avocado toast (RMB 38), and a rice bowl (RMB 60). The food were all ok but just ok, without any personality and were always unimpressive to me. Maybe because it’s a healthy spot so all the food taste like it is lack of spices and layers. The portion of the avocado toast was ridiculously small but the price was not small AT ALL, and everything were pretty pricy.
Some might say the ambience is nice and yes, it’s nicely decorated with pet friendly set up, while it’s always super crowded with long lines and loud talks and background music playing. I try to like the restaurant by choosing new dishes and visiting at different timings, but never fell in love with it. There’re just more places in Shanghai with quality food and quality seasoning.
