Before Elcerdo (must click to view new outlook of website, very cute haha) arrives at our shore, Euro Deli is THE place to have our fix of German Roast Pork Knuckle. We usually patronise the outlet, Euro Deli Grill, at Jalan Yap Kwan Seng where it is a spacious restaurant as compared to the Deli at Damansara Kim. Nevertheless, this round we visited the Deli together with a bunch of friends.
Since a few of us arrived pretty early and have gotten hungry staring at the various sausages and cold meat in the fridge, J decided to order some appetiser whilst waiting for the rest to arrive. She asked for a plate of potatoes cooked in bacon bits and added another order of spaetzle later on. The potatoes were nicely fried in the yummy bacon fat, the floury texture of the potatoes went extremely well with the crispy bacon bits. Needless to say this plate of potatoes disappeared in a jiffy but luckily I managed to snap a bit of whatever that is left on the plate before they got polished off as well.
Spaetzle is a type of German dumplings made of flour. The dough is pressed thru some holes into boiling water to form into dumplings, drained and cooked with bacon bits. The texture of the spaetzle is soft but chewy, flavourless but when cooked with the bacon bits and chopped onions, the fats melded with the spaetzle, creating a lovely fragrant.
We were served with basket of lovely buns, whilst we were enjoying seconds, a couple of guys in our party arrived and kicked a fuss over the unsalted butter served. They asked for the salted version and managed to get them whilst the ladies downed the unsalted butter without much problem. I wonder if it's a guy thing?
I had a Pork Cordon Blue that came with thick fries and coleslaw. The pork is stuffed with ham and cheese before breaded and deep fried. Very sinful indeed haha but once in a while I guess it's all right to indulge. Had to be careful when I dug in cos the cheese filling was super hot. I find the pork is a little over fried which rendered the meat on the dry side but eaten with the cheese filling, it was all right.
Hubby, as usual had the Roast Pork Knuckle which is his standard order at Euro Deli. The crackling of the skin was perfectly crispy that I could heard my the other friend who was having this crunching on them. Portion is huge for me but for a guy, I think they could easily down one knuckle without much challenge.
J had pork chop, I think, which she can't finish and passed on to the official DBKL or it's supposed to be Alam Flora now? The rest have pork shoulder and steak (beef one!) that came from the set meal options. Look out for them on the blackboard. Set meals came with a soup, choice of mains, dessert and coffee/tea for a very reasonable price. I heard the pork shoulder was kinda tough but the steak was pretty ok since our youngest diner, 2 and a half years old, chowed on them with a gusto. It was a joy to watch this little fellow eat, downing his bread, soup, meat followed by ice-cream that came with the set oh so heartily. Wished my boiboi would chew on steaks!
If you're not familiar with this area, coming to this part of Damansara Kim can get a bit trickly. Check out the map first and remember to save the phone number, just in case you're lost.
