Poco Deli

Last weekend the hubby took me to Poco's for dinner.  It's a deli-cafe near Charlie's in Kapitolyo, Pasig.

These signs greeted us as we entered:

It was a nice enough place to drink and talk . . . though you won't be comfortable sitting on their hardwood benches for long.

We had pumpkin soup for starters.  It was perfect!  Not too creamy but very tasty.

We ordered the Single Sausage platter for our appetizer.  It came with toasted bagels.

We had the Angus Beef Strips for our main course.  We were expecting the strips to be similar to the fajitas at Chili's, but it came out thinly sliced just like tapa.

It was yummy!

Don't forget to ask for the drippings.  Mix it with the rice and perfectly cooked bacon and forget about your diet.

We had the Blackout chocolate cake for dessert.  They claimed it was made from Valrhona chocolate,  but the flavor doesn't explode like the Valrhona choco cake at Momo's.  Other than that it was good, and very affordable at P120 per slice.  The hubby said it reminded him of Polly's when they were still selling only at BF.  He swears it was a LOT better then.

The red velvet cupcakes looked interesting.  We'll try it next time.

Maybe the callos too.  The phrase "slow-cooked at home" just makes the food more appealing to me.

They have Dave's Naturals frozen yoghurt.

Our total bill (with drinks) was a very reasonable P700 plus.  If you live in Pasig and you want to meet up with friends 'somewhere in the neighborhood' this is the perfect place.  They're open till 1pm on weekends and 11pm on weekdays.
