The Moon is one of those places on campus where you know that their food isn’t good, but you just crave for their sauce drenched sweet and sour pork and MSG-loaded deep fried wings. Being Chinese ourselves, we really have to say that The Moon’s food quality is probably the same as Crystal Mall’s or Richmond Public Market’s level, or worse. The prices are quite steep ($6.50 for two items on rice or noodles) and the selection is scarce. Furthermore, you cannot use your UBC card to pay here!
Sweet and Sour Pork (4/7)
We’ll sum up this dish in two words: Unhealthy & Addictive. The sweet and sour pork here is basically small chunks of meat covered in a thick batter, then deep fried and absolutely drenched in a sweet and sour sauce. When you combine this dish with rice, it becomes an extremely flavourful combination that makes your taste buds want more! The sweet and sour pork here isn’t made very well and we only eat here once a month or so.
Beef & Broccoli (4.5/7)
This is a slightly healthier dish than the previous one since there are actual vegetables involved. However, the entire dish is soaked in tons of MSG, which will make you extremely thirsty for the next few hours after your meal. The beef is quite tender but a bit salty. You’ll have to eat this with plenty of rice!
The Moon is definitely one of the last resorts for us when deciding what to eat at the UBC SUB. If you don’t feel like something too heavy, opt for their wonton noodle soup!
