MOVIE STARS CAFE is a movie-themed restaurant featuring waiters in Superhero and Villain costumes, and Broadway Musical performances. It is a passion project of the Japanese founder of HaloHaloMall.com.
Initially, it was named Star Movies Cafe, inspired by the Star Movies Cafe franchise in Japan. But they had to rename it to Movie Stars Cafe to avoid the trademark infringement.
I surprised the boys the other night with a restaurant where their superheroes come to life. :)
Check out the Movie Stars Cafe experience:

Syoti Joshua says "Wowowow!" every time he sees food he likes...
Xu Liu Xian Healthy Desserts of Hong Kong opened its first stall in Mall of Asia. It is worth trying, especially if you are looking for something healthy -- but it won't satisfy your yummy craving. After all, we do still want our chocolate dessert once in a while. :)

Heads or Tails is a franchise from Thailand and I heard stories of people lining up in the food court of Siam Paragon (The flagship beautiful mall in Thailand) just to get a taste of their buttered toast and kaya toppings. We love kaya so we decided to try them. They are trying to replicate the concept in Manila by situating Heads or Tails in the food court of Mall of Asia.
(BTW, I forgot to ask why it is called Heads or Tails)
Heads or Tails specializes in Buttered Toast and Toppings. We tried the Strawberry Fruit Jam topping (P40) and the Taro Kaya Topping (P40). We like the Taro Kaya but we find the fruit jam ordinary which I ordered for Aidan.

Thanks to Henry Sy for creating the Perfect Bay Walk Gimmick Place in the Esplanade @ Mall of Asia. For those who missed the Manila Bay Walk demolished by Mayor Lim, the Esplanade is a better alternative because it has...
- Manila Bay walk ambiance with decent restrooms...
- Seaside Paluto restaurants with Aling Tonya's, Trinity or Julie's iHaw-iHaw...
- Pier One and Padi's Point inuman place with a nice view of the fireworks...
- Clean and secure ambiance with security guards on motorcycles...
- Plenty of parking space and near SM Mall of Asia...
The entire place is branded as San Miguel by the Bay which means only San Miguel products are sold (I don't mind). The only thing is they built it tooo close to the bay. I do hope they will able to maintain the cleanliness of the place and Manila Bay.

Mall of Asia complex is already an integral part of Aidan's childhood memories. Every time we would go out, Aidan would say "go to SM" or "go to Mall of Asia". I don't want to sound like an endorser of SM but it is now part of our daily conversation with Aidan.
Another awesome addition in the MOA complex is the Metrostar Ferry Manila Bay Cruise. For P120, you can enjoy a one-hour round trip around Manila Bay. Aidan love boats too so having a one-hour ferry ride was awesome! Most of the Manila Bay cruises have disappeared already when the Manila Baywalk was cleaned up by Mayor Lim.
The Metro Ferry dock is located beside The Shrine of Jesus, The Way, The Truth and the Life (Church across Mall of Asia). I would recommend to take the sunset cruise (5.00pm) or the evening cruise (6.30pm) on Fri/Sat/Sun in time for the MOA fireworks. (I need to check the exact time again because the soft opening departure hours are different from the regular schedule. Please comment if you know the actual schedule.)
