Mosto and Modo sibling Moka Bros’ is slated to open in the first half of September. This venue by Alex Molina and Daniel Urdaneta is in the former Italian restaurant Pomodoro space in Nali Patio, facing the south side of Sanlitun Village South. While Moka might evoke thoughts of coffee, it will be more restaurant than cafe. From a press release, some info on the food:
[The menu] comprises of savory crepes, wraps, sandwiches, salads, red rice and various noodle bowls (the “Power Bowls!”) with the choice of alternative flour base such as buckwheat….
The beverage list offers a wide range of drinks to accompany dining and snacking from breakfast till late dinner. Specialty coffees, Tea Pigs’ funky tea blends, healthy smoothies, unique milkshakes, wines and cocktails are included in the menu.
The service is designed to be fast, dynamic and split between counter and table service. A central large open counter will display homemade cakes and stage juicers in action. MOKA’s central location makes it a convenient morning stop for an early breakfast meeting or a dinner date after the movies.
Moka Bros. will open daily at 8 AM and take last orders at 10:30 PM Sundays to Thursdays and at 11:30 PM on Fridays and Saturdays.
Get half off on summer cocktails and Stella draft during happy hour — 5 PM to 8 PM — on Opus Terrace at the Four Seasons (ladies can get those summer cocktails for free during happy hour on Thursdays). Also of note, burgers are half-off (rmb79) on Friday nights, with five options — The Regular, The Understated, The Modern, The Health Conscious and The Introvert.
Slow Boat has a state fair theme this weekend with “spin the wheel” deals on Friday (tonight), deep-fried Oreos, funnel cakes and corn dogs, plus a beer stein-holding contest at 9 PM, on Saturday, and a cutest dog contest on Sunday.
And Kokomo is holding a foam party on Saturday afternoon (see poster below). Given that bikini, it looks like Cheers wine shop is a sponsor.
