Chuck's Deli: Slabwiches and More

Note: This restaurant is already closed. 



I was recently invited by Chuck's Deli (through Eugene of Hefty Foodie) to an intimate dinner with fellow bloggers. It was good timing since my college friends are planning to try their eating challenge: the Slay The Buffy! The Buffy is one of Chuck's Deli's bestselling slabwich which has buffalo chicken and garlic sauce. Finish the whole slab of the Buffy (worth Php 590) under 5 minutes and get it for FREE! You'll also win a 'I've Slayed The Buffy" shirt and have your name displayed on their wall. :)

Chuck's Deli is the brainchild of Marco Alcantara, who was craving for sandwiches he grew up with in the US. Together with his wife, Chef Katrina Kuhn-Alcantara, they created wonderful sandwiches we now call a SLABWICH.



To start our meal, Crystal Yaptinchay, the Marketing Manager served us her favorite Sidekick, the Potato Chips (Php 75).


Potato Chips

These are home-made potato chips which goes best with their garlic sauce. :)

Flatbread Pizzas

Chuck's Deli also introduced the newest item in their menu: the Flatbread Pizzas.

The Flatbread Pizzas have freshly-made crust and homemade cream sauce with 5 delicious flavors:

Bacon
Shrimps & Anchovies
Sausage
Mushroom & Swiss
Parma Ham


Bacon (Php 245) has bacon slices, onion, and nutmeg. The Shrimps & Anchovies (Php 265) has shrimps, anchovies, onions, arugula, and garlic oil. I like how the saltiness of the anchovies balances the taste of the shrimps.

Sausage (Php 265) has English & Italian garlic sausages with onions, Swiss cheese and shredded basil. This is my personal favorite. I love the mild flavors of this pizza. It was really yummy!

Mushroom & Swiss (Php 265) has fresh button mushrooms, Swiss cheese, onions and arugula. Parma Ham (Php 285) has Parma Ham, onions, arugula with lemon oil. Each pizza is good for 2-3 persons. :)

Slabwiches

Our group also shared a whole slab of Hamsome Threesome (Php 495).

Hamsome Threesome


One of Chuck's Deli's bestsellers, Hamsome Threesome has York Ham, Mortadella Ham, Smoked Cooked Ham with Swiss cheese, lettuce, tomato, cucumber and Chuck's sauce on 10-inch homemade Ciabatta bread. It is a little spicy (from the ham, I guess). It was delicious, nonetheless. :)

Chasers & Quenchers

Chuck's Deli offers a variety of drinks, from local and imported sodas to freshly made smoothies and milkshakes.

Some of us got the Power Shake (Php 145), which is combination of lettuce, apple and orange.

Power Shake

Arce Dairy Milkshakes (Php 195) are quite popular in Chuck's Deli. Each milkshake has 3 scoops of Arce Dairy ice cream blended with fresh carabao's milk.

One of us had Vanilla Oreo, while I had Banana Peanut Butter.

I love the milkshake! I was really thick and yummy! :) Can't wait to try all the other flavors.

I also had a single Cafe Latte (Php 75). Yes, they do have hot coffee. They serve beer and house wine too.

Sweet Fixes

For dessert, we had Mamou's Key Lime Pie (Php 145) and Waffle Sundae.

Waffle Sundae


I liked that Mamou's Key Lime Pie is not too strong yet very creamy. The Waffle Sundae has three scoops of Arce Dairy Ice Cream: Chocolate, Quezo Real, and Strawberry with waffle bits and banana slices. You'll get this for free if you dine at Chuck's Deli on your birthday, but they'll put this awesome dessert in their menu soon. :)

It was definitely a satisfying dinner at Chuck's Deli. The service was really good, and food great! For delicious slabwiches, flatbread pizzas, milkshakes and more, this is the place for you. Do share with your friends or family a whole slabwich, or if you're really hungry, finish one yourself! :) Can't wait to try all the other slabwiches they have to offer. :)

P.S.

I actually went back the next day for lunch with a work colleague. We shared a half-slab of The Reuben (Php 355) which comes with Onion Rings, and a Sausage Flatbread Pizza. The Reuben has homemade Angus corned beef, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, and mustard. Didn't I mention before that I love onion rings? I think you should try their onion rings! I loved it!

The saltiness of the homemade Angus corned beef is just right, and it was really tender too.

Yes, we finished everything!

Thanks to Chef Katrina and Crystal of Chuck's Deli for inviting us. :)

Note: Flatbread Pizzas are currently available at the Eastwood branch only.

  8. Michy, your post made me hungry. I've been invited by friends to try Chuck's Deli five times already and it's unfortunate that my schedule's always a bummer for not cooperating with the plan. After reading your post, I make it a point not to pass up a chance next time :)

  10. Oh my, the drinks look really interesting, but others are as interesting as well. Haha! The pizzas are interesting but slightly unappealing to look at. :))

    More than anything else, I love the new look of your blog Mitch!
