My dear friend Dexter and I had an impromptu lunch at Spatzle Euro Market Cafe, a far cry from our Japanese lunches. Spatzle, named after a German soft pasta, serves European comfort food.
Each table has this cute container with utensils and hand sanitizer. I find this really impressive because the washrooms are a few steps away.
While waiting for our dishes, we had their Haus Made Specialty Drinks: I had the Cucumber Lemon Soda (Php 135) while my friend had the Peach Breezer (Php 105).

I liked how simple and refreshing my drink is. My friend found his drink too acidic for his taste.
For the main dishes, I ordered the Grilled Sausage Roesti (Php 320), and my friend got the Parmesan Crusted Mahi-Mahi with Aurora Spatzle (Php 385).
|Grilled Sausage Roesti|
Roesti is known as Swiss Potato Pancakes, a common breakfast item and quite similar to hash browns. Roesti dishes take 15-20 minutes to prepare and I was made to choose which sausage I wanted (I just forgot which one I chose. haha). The sausages are preservative-free, served with gravy and sunny side up. I loved the simplicity of this dish, it is something I would love to have anytime of the day. :)
|Parmesan Crusted Mahi-Mahi with Aurora Spatzle|
My friend's order is baked mahi-mahi with parmesan crust, served with tomato cream spatzle and a side salad. The fish was a little oily, and the spatzle goes well with it. The dish was a healthy choice nevertheless.
For dessert, we shared a Trio of Assorted Cakes (Php 290): Sticky Toffee Pudding, Zucchini Cake and Nutella Cheesecake.

We were both amazed by the Zucchini Cake, which is covered with cream cheese frosting. I would love to have this dessert again. As a Nutella addict, I loved the Nutella Cheesecake as it wasn't too sweet. However, we found the Sticky Toffee Pudding too sweet.
For it's homey ambiance, comfort food and huge servings, I would recommend Spatzle. Don't miss the Zucchini Cake and Nutella Cheesecake as well. I would love to go back to try the other roesti and spatzle dishes.
