I just love lunch outs. It gives me that needed short break from the corners of my messy cubicle. Plus it is also refreshing to eat something else.

Last Monday, J and I went to Poco Deli to catch up. But to our surprise, there were no available parking slots. We then decided to go to Rub Ribs as there are more parking spaces there but since it was lunch time, the place was packed with hungry diners. We then went back to Poco Deli to check if there were still tables available and there were! So while I man the table, J parked the car.
It was my third time to visit this place but just my second time actually dining here (the second visit was a short one when I bought some sausages for N’s family). Anyway, since I heard that their Gourmet Tapa with Eggs and Bacon Rice (PHP280) is one of their best sellers and that some of my officemates raved about it, I just have to try it. I also ordered a glass of Poco’s Special Freshly Brewed Iced Tea (PHP65). J decided to order the same thing.
Service was quite quick as our meals were served in about 10 minutes. I guess they pre-cooked some of the food in anticipation of the lunch rush.
Two eggs, savory tapa, and bacon rice! What a lovely equation for lunch. The tapa was soft yet there were parts that needed a bit of effort to cut. Nonetheless, the sweetness of the tapa, saltiness of the bacon rice and the gooeyness of the egg yolks makes this one great meal!
The iced tea on the other hand was not bad at all. It was different from the typical store bought iced tea as this one had a stronger tea flavor.
I then remembered… I never tried their dessert. Sounds like a perfect excuse to visit again soon! :)
Poco Deli is located at 21 East Capitol Drive, Brgy. Kapitolyo, Pasig City.
