Shan aka Susan is one of those friends I can talk to about anything! Comfortable in her own skin, she never fails to amaze me with her down-to-earth and helpful, caring persona. I like hanging out with people who are grounded because what you see is what you get. She’s a talented spin writer too if I may add. Just give her any story angle and she’ll easily transform it! Did I mention that she bought me the ‘Battle Hymm of the Tiger Mother’ book? I enjoyed it by the way, because I like getting books as gifts. Just don’t get me any science fiction and gardening books!
So anyway, I decided to ask her out for lunch at Euro Deli which is in Damansara Kim. If I thought I was hopeless at directions, I have found another mate who is equally as hopeless as I am haha. We may probably be the worst contestants on Amazing Race if we ever took part! Thankfully, she found the place as it was already starting to rain.
I chose Euro Deli because I had my fair share of rice for the week so it was time to shake things up. The restaurant is known for its wide variety of ham and sausages. As you can tell, my food reviews mostly revolve around restaurants near my area!
They have a long list of porky delights such as the Rolled Stuffed Pork Belly, Breaded Pork Escalope, Roast Pork Knuckle, Roast Pork Ribs, Pork Medallion and Pork Chop! (You get the swine connection?) We seriously had to scan through the menu for quite awhile because there were so many choices. Their pièce de résistance is possibly the Roast Pork Knuckle at RM69.90. The photo is enough to make you salivate. You may even have a potpourri of Mixed Roast of Knuckle, Ribs and Belly at RM39.90.
Other specialties include the Hungarian Sausage, Emmenthaler Sausage, Farmer’s Bratwurst and German Pepper Sausage. In France, sausages are known as sausissons and in Germany, wurst. Essentially, sausages were made hundreds of years ago to preserve meats by using salt. I’m telling you, I’m going to eat an authentic hotdog in New York and stand by the roadside someday. I live for food experiences like these.
Euro Deli’s side dishes comprise of Roesti Potatoes with Cheese, Cheesy Macaroni Bites with Basil Tomato Coulis and Potato Skin with Cheese and Bacon. Definite afternoon delights. We shared a Grilled Chicken Sausage dish which came with sauerkraut, mashed potatoes and pork with onion sauce. It was a hearty, filling dish because Shan made me eat all the carbs on that plate! Their sausages are faultless so you can’t possibly go wrong with that.
Another side attraction that you should take note of is their infamous Matterhorn challenge. If you can chomp down this monstrous burger within 45 minutes, you will be awarded with a cash prize of RM100. Just make sure it covers your visit to the doctor because I honestly can’t fathom how any sane person can wolf down the burger! This burger has a whopping 1.5kg pork patty topped with 11 slices of Swiss cheese with all the trimmings such as tomatoes, bacon, etc, etc. So if you ever feeling like stretching your stomach to the limit, please drop by Euro Deli and post me the video if you conquered the burger!
