Love at Second Bite: Spätzle Euro Market Café

I love it whenever I get a chance to have a dinner date with my friends. It’s nice to break the routine once in a while. Hours of sharing what’s happening with one’s life to reminiscing the good ‘ol past could sure brighten one’s day (and even more). I just hope that Shangri-La gets all the restaurants open and operating soon as I have tried all of the restaurants already! But of course, there are the “favorite” spots and I dined in one with my favorite dragon lady. 

Hello again, Spätzle Euro Market Café!
We decided to dine at Spätzle given T never got the chance to visit that restaurant yet. It has been a while since my last visit but I really enjoyed the food there. I remember having that smoked salmon benny which was spectacular. I fell in love with the slightly breaded soft boiled egg. (Okay, just remembering it makes me drool.) Anyway, T and I decided to have a date after work since it has been a few weeks since we last saw each other. Plus, we had so many stories to share to each other. (Clingy friends.)
It was a breeze for us to decide on what to order because we were both hungry and every second counts! 

We went for the following: Roasted Creamy Tomato Soup (PHP220), Monte Blanc Pizza (PHP325), and Roasted Chicken Sausage (PHP295). As for the drinks, we got Spätz All Natural Caffeine-free Iced Tea (PHP98) and Haus Iced Tea (PHP90).
First served was our soup. We asked to have it split into two and it was plated in a charming manner.
The soup sure was flavorful and it was indeed creamy. It was slightly tangy (plus the bacon bits were just too delectable) and it wasn't to heavy though making it a great appetizer.
The Monte Blanc pizza, which was topped with panchetta (Italian bacon), spinach, mushroom and cream sauce, and spiced potato chips, was really delicious. It was a great balance of salty and tangy flavors. The spinach also offset the saltiness of the bacon and cheese. I ate the chips separately though.
T's roasted chicken sausage wasn't new to me though as my mom ordered it before and I didn't like it then. Surprisingly though, giving a dish another try would be a pleasant surprise. This time around, I enjoyed it. Perhaps because it somehow compliments the pizza.
As for our drinks, these were better choices than the last ones I ordered. My drink was nothing superb but definitely refreshing.

I can't wait to try the other pizza flavors soon!

Spätzle Euro Market Café is located at 5th Floor, East Wing, Shangri-La Plaza Mall, Mandaluyong City
