It's been months, or years since I first visited Poco Deli in Kapitolyo. That first time I've tasted their Truffle Oil Pasta is still a vivid memory. I invited my college friends to dinner at Poco Deli as a late celebration of my birthday. And in all honesty, I really wanted to revisit this place for the longest time.
Our group arrived later than we expected, but glad we didn't lose the table reserved for us. Thanks for the consideration, Poco Deli.
For appetizers, we ordered the German Sausage and Cheese Platter (Php 360, single).

The platter has 3 kinds of sausages and 3 kinds of cheeses, the variety depends on the availability. I should have requested a Double, but then we wouldn't be able to finish it as the dishes arrived quickly.
Naturally, I requested for my favorite pasta dish, the Truffle Oil Pasta with Mushrooms (Php 380) and another delicious pasta dish, Aglio Olio Pasta (Php 250).

Truffle Oil Pasta has the same impact on me as it did the first time I tasted it. It has the perfect balance of the white sauce and the flavor of the truffle oil. I wouldn't be able to fathom what sorcery the chef did to create such an impeccable dish, but it had me, nevertheless.
Topped with garlic chips, the Aglio Olio Pasta is of the same caliber as the Truffle Oil Pasta. I have always loved the simplicity of this dish that I have attempted to recreate it at home.
We also got some pizzas. I love that Poco Deli serves thin-crust pizzas, which I prefer than bread-like pizzas.
We had Quattro Formaggi Pizza (Php 360) and Prosciutto Pizza (Php 380).

The Quattro Formaggi Pizza has mozzarella, pecorino, gorgonzola, and Grana Padano. I could not play favorites as I love both pizzas, my friends loved both too. :)
We were supposed to grab their desserts, especially the Blackout Chocolate Cake, but it was unavailable during the time we visited. Hence we decided to go to a nearby cafe to have coffee and desserts.
I have always loved Poco Deli, it's relaxing vibe, the wonderful service, and the scrumptious food. Bacon slabs, we'll meet the next time I visit.
