Known for its wine, cheese and sausages, it was quite a delightful experience after I sampled their artisanal ice cream. Last night I tried their mint chocolate and I loved it. I even did a little experiment by mixing the ice cream with my capuccino. They have lots of flavors and I hope to try it during my next visit.

Met up with a friend and got something quick and light, hence, our choices of Sausage and Cheese dish ( you get to choose which sausage and cheese they would be preparing for your plate ) for our starters .......and the hefty margherita pizza ....look at those large tomatoes yum! hehehe served hot and fresh!.... As for my drinks I love having ginger ale, and so I got the trusty Bundaberg to go with our foodies 12852210084128077🏻127881

5 stars for the big-ass bacon slabs, but 4 stars only for the cook on the egg. 128557 We asked for malasado eggs but the eggs didn't pass as malasado to any of us. 128532

Reasons why I loved the bacon slab:
1. It's BACON!
2. The cook is tender and it had a good sear to it.
3. Who doesn't love bacon? 128561

It has been a tradition that we hold a staycation to celebrate K’s birthday. We have tried staying in a few hotels in Ortigas but never in Makati. Since we were all pretty mobile, K decided to hold her annual staycation party at The Peninsula Manila. But for dinner, we opted to cross the busy streets of Makati and went to Ayala Triangle. We roamed around to see where to eat. Since K and M haven’t been to Poco Deli, we decided to head there.

Hello, Poco Deli!

I usually frequent its Kapitolyo branch as it used to be nearer my place. I would usually order its bacon slab or tapa and its refreshing house brewed tea. This time though, I went with Mom’s Pot Roast (PHP320) and my favorite iced tea (PHP85).

Service was fast despite the number of diners. I got my pot roast in less than 15 minutes. 128518

And it was love at first bite. The tender roast and flavorful gravy combination was heaven on plate. I also loved the chunks of carrots and potato for extra texture. The dish’s taste was a bit too rich to be enjoyed alone though so make sure that you eat it with rice.

Overall, it was a lovely dinner. I discovered a new favorite and I left with a happy tummy. 10084

(We also ordered other dishes but I'd like to highlight this dish I discovered. 128513)

After an exhausting workout, i was looking for a great dinner so me and some friends decided to try something out at ayala triangle. Pocco deli was our target for the night.

Back in the days when im jogging around ayala triangle i always noticed that this resto was not as jampack as compare to others around the area. I always wonder why so tonight im about to find out.

I ordered their bacon slab with rice and egg. It says that their bacon was from france and honey cured. It really taste good, it got 2 big slice of bacon it was really good but the other slice was really hard to chew hence the 4 stars.

Pasta with italian sausage was superb. I order their blackout cake for dessert and that was good as well but not as big as shown in the menu that look like a dome cake.

Im on a order spree so when the bill came i was kinda surprise. 128552 And i realize the reason why it was not as jampacked as others. 128522

We had dinner the other day at Poco Deli. It was my first time there. Immediately ordered their Bacon slab (bacon lover here!), their chorizo pizza and spanish sardine pasta. Everything we ordered was good. The Bacon slab was good for 2 (if you're not a big eater). The pasta was aldente and topped with spanish sardine. Yummy. Chorizo pizza was also good, but, better to try another kind/pizza variety next time. Will definitely be back here! #12Days

Had a mini reunion with my batchmates in a study tour way back 2007. It was one of the most memorable trip for me. Met a lot of new friends and stayed in an unfamiliar place for around 2 months. So nostalgic!

Since some of our friends from Cebu and Gensan were in Manjla that time, we instinctly called for a reunion. I was tasked to do the restaurant hunting and particularly picked Poco Deli in Ayala Triangle for their reputation of good food and also to catch the Christmas Lights Show at the gardens (which we missed because of too much fun reminiscing our expetience 128514)

We came early so we were able to secure a good spot in the brightly-lit resto. I chose the tall chair and elevated table, just one or two in the whole room situated at the center because I found the regular tables low and small for five people to fit in. Maybe four is perfect for such small table.

BACON STEAK - 411088
Generally liked this dish. Two huge and thick slices of bacon (looked like liempo part), marinated the bacon-way and cooked like a steak. It tasted bacon really and bacon lovers will die for this. It came with bacon rice and two sunny side up eggs. Overall, it was good but a tad bit salty. First few bites were heavenly but the umay factor started to sink in thereafter. Good to try though! You may share this because it's a big serving.

TRUFFLE MUSHROOM PASTA - 4.511088
Really liked the subtle truffle taste and the al dente pasta. I tried my friend's order and will not hesitate to order this next time.

BOLOGNESE PASTA - 411088
Not a big fan of tomato-based pasta but it tasted good. Legit bolognese i guess?

AGLIO OLIO - 4.511088
Oil-based pasta which I think was good also.

BLACKOUT CHOCOLATE CAKE - 411088
Such decadent moist chocolate that the five of is shared. Good chocolate-y moist kind of cake to clear our mouths of the pasta or bacon we ate.

Poco Deli seem to serve good Italian food. The ambiance is good, with ham and salami displays at one side, wines and glasses at the other. Exudes a simple yet calming Italian restaurant feels. Prices are a bit on the higher range but I think worth the food in terms of taste and serving.

Been trying to be a good girl and eat my veggies at night. I think i OD'd on edamame thinking they were peanuts. After, i felt like throwing up. Didn't feel like stopping when i was eating it though.

Today is a new day! I'm gonna need meat for the work ahead. Poco Deli's specialty is bacon, even if the photo says i should order it, i do not know why i didn't. I got this beef tapa instead. It's actually meaty and a big order. I had expected the bacon rice to be divine but the rice was topped with bacon lang. Still good though, i think i just didn't mix it well for an even distribution with the rice. I do like that their rice is not mushy.

Coming back for meat cravings. Still unsure about the bacon.

P.S. I should give their pasta a try.

I was one of the Makati dwellers who got really excited when i found out that Poco Deli is branching out in my chaotic city.  I visited the Ayala Triangle Gardens a day after they opened.

When i am craving for bacon,  i always go to Poco.  Bacon Slab anyone?  For those who are not privy to what a bacon slab is - these are  thick,  juicy,  bigass slices of this wonderful cured meat.  Now add perfectly cooked sunny side up eggs a flavorful garlic rice on the side - Breakfast of Champions (I can eat Bacon Slab any time of day)

Blackouut Chocolate Cake.  This one is a close contender against Miss Polly's cake.  Moist,  not overly sweet and has the right chocolate kick. Best eaten with a cup of joe.

Citrus Delight.  Fancy fruit juice in fancy crockery.  Fresh fruit slices over a citrus based drink.  Better alternative compared to soda.  At least you have some vitamin c in your bloodstream after ze bacon slab meal,  this will stabilise your cholesterol level (I made that up).

Poco also has a wide selection of wine and different types of sausages.  And I've heard that the Truffle Oil pasta is yummy.  I'll take note of that on my next visit.

I've always wanted to try Poco Deli and would normally recommend this place but they never really paid that much attention before. But since I'll be paying for our dinner, I get to decide!! 128541

We came in at around 7pm and there were still a lot of tables available. I guess it's not the "popular" restaurant in Ayala Triangle. Well, it's not super mahal but not mura rin. Plus I guess the place (and the feel) is not very inviting (at first sight 128517).

Poco Deli or your small neighborhood deli shop. They offer different kinds of sausages, cheeses, and wines.

We ordered the following:

🔸 German Sausage Platter (Single 400/Double 650)
7 sausages served with homemade sauerkraut and crispy toasted bagel chips. All that for 650 pesos!! Pricey? Yes but SUPER SULIT!! You get to choose 2 big and 5 small sausages. The sausages were all good. We chose Hungarian and Kielbasa and I forgot the 5 small ones since their names were all so hard to remember 128541128566 The sauerkraut was weird at first but when you eat more of it, it's actually good! I tried eating the sausage together with the sauerkraut and bagel chips and it's good. I moved the plate away from me because if not, I can finish everything!! 128055128586

Bacon Steak (380)
The mother of all bacon? Haha 128517 2 Huge Fat Thick slabs of Bacon steak served with egg and bacon rice!!! Bacon heaven for all bacon lovers!!! They all loved this one. I liked the fact that there wasn't that much fat! 128513128513128513128588🏼 I just think that it's a bit salty (saltier than the usually bacon I eat) but my aunt said "duh, bacon kasi!!!" oh well 128517128541

Irish Beef Stew (340)
According to the menu, the Beef was simmered in dark beer to bring out a unique caramel flavor. We were all lookimg forward to this dish but we didn't liked it that much. The "beer taste" was too strong for us. But the beef was super tender! This is also served with Bacon Rice (plain rice topped with bacon bits).

Chef's Salad (240)
Mixed greens, tomatoes, cucumber, olives, croutons, and feta cheese. Usual salad ingredient but not your ordinary salad because of the lemon vinaigrette dressing! It was oh soo good! Light lemon-y taste that's not too citrusy. Just right to break the richness of all the other dished we had.

Quattro Formaggi Pizza (380)
Thin crust pizza with Mozarella, Pevorino, Gorgonzola, and Grana Padano. I am only familliar with 2 of the 4 cheeses included but I enjoyed the simplicity of this pizza. With all our order, this (and the salad) balanced everything. Everyting else was either meaty, salty, or too savory and this being the simple (but awesome) "plain" pizza, was amazingly good. It's cheesy goodness slash cheese heaven times 4!!!! 128518

Blackout Chocolate Cake (220)
Because no meal must end without eating dessert! We ordered their bestseller blackout chocolate cake. Literally an overload of Chocolate -- Moist chocolate cake with thick and rich chocolate icing and chocolate chips!!! 128561128566128513128525128076🏼 It was super rich and nakakalula but it was good. Best to share it since it's too deadly to finish this alone 128517

Service was excellent. Fast and they really make sure you get everything you need! 128077🏼

Can you get prosciutto pizza in other places? This is the first time I saw this pizza flavor, but it does make sesnse both are Italian! Happy to see actual strips of prosciutto on the pizza and not just small bits of it. Love their Sausage platter, combination of different type of sausages plus cheese. I didn't really like the pomodoro pasta but the pork roast was ok. The citrus delight drink is delightful indeed. Price is reasonable, they have happy hour 5-8pm where you can get a glass of wine for Php100. In general we had a good meal with the flavors of Europe.

Jamon de Oro x Bacon Slab

My friend ordered Jamon de Oro, while I ordered the Bacon Slab just because puro bacon slab ang review sa Looloo. Hahaha.

Tbh, i'm not a fan of bacon but this one was good. I also tried the Jamon de Oro and it was an instant favorite! For it's price, I could say na sulit na sya because we were't able to finish our meal of kabusugan. Haha.
Will go back to try their desserts and ice cream! 9786

The kids were home early, so we decided to make it a family night and have dinner in Ayala Triangle. The wife suggested we try Poco Deli.

Our order for the night: a double order of the sausage sampler for starters, two orders of the bacon steak, lengua, and quattro formaggi pizza for the kids.

Overall a good meal for our little family.

The Blackout Chocolate cake 127851 was good but just not as chocolatey as its color would suggest. I was expecting it to taste like dark chocolate but it only tastes like a regular but moistly good chocolate cake. Not too sweet which is perfect to pair with a hot cup of latte 9749️ sans the sugar.

This branch's location being situated by the Ayala Triangle park is just perfect for sitting al fresco having these afternoon delights. 128076
