Poco Deli Kapitolyo: The Sausage-Fest Experience!

Once again, we roamed the streets of Kapitolyo to find good food. Lo and behold, it's Poco Deli Delicatessen this time.

At first we ordered the German Sausage and Cheese Platter but then we saw the German Sausage Sampler and got confused. The description was the same; the price was also the same. The only difference was the other one had cheese in it. Even the first waiter didn't say anything about the difference, he just said that the other one included cheese.. Not helping! We asked another waiter who finally gave a sensible answer. He explained that the German Sausage and Cheese Platter has smaller cuts of sausages. We decided to drop the cheese and go for bigger sausages!

German Sausage Platter (Double, P480)
The sausage was tasty. If you want a wholesome sausage-fest experience, this must be it (lol). The platter is a choice of three sausages: Kielbasa, Nuemberger, Bratwurst, Cheese Krainer, Chicken Sausage, Bockwurst, Frankfurter, with home made sauerkraut and New York Bagel chips. I forgot what we ordered exactly but I guess anything you order would be good. Although by the time you finish the plate, everything in it will taste the same: salty and oily. Best shared with friends to avoid the umay factor. I think the sausage platter is best paired with beer; maybe will try that next time.

Bacon Slabs (P280)
I ordered the Bacon Slab or Bacon Steak. Got confused again. I think they need to revamp their menu since I got confused twice in one seating. On the picture it said Bacon Steak, but on the list it stated Bacon Slab. Whatever the name is, it's all good. It tasted bacon-y but it was unusually thick; like a lechon kawali.  It was accompanied with two eggs and bacon rice, which by the way, was an overkill since I was already eating bacon slabs! 

The Blackout Chocolate Cake and New York Baked Cheesecake
On to desserts. Somehow the less sweet blueberry cheesecake complemented the extra-sweet Blackout Chocolate Cake. Both were delicious, even more I imagine if we ordered coffee.

I don't know much about wine except for Pinot Noir from World of Warcraft, but they seem to have a relatively large collection of it for a small restaurant. They also have several foreign beers on display which added positively to the overall ambiance of the place. 

The place was a little larger than Mad Mark's, but still small compared to others. The small space was well-designed and cozy. I would enjoy good conversations over a glass of wine with close friends in this kind of setting. It's a nice place for intimate dates or spending time with close friends.

Overall, I give Poco Deli 4 out of 5 stars. I enjoyed the experience; excellent choice of sausages and good ambiance. I'll definitely visit this place again, looking forward for a glass of wine next time.  -Manny
