6 Pieces Nurnberger Pork Sausages (P180++) with Konig Pilsner 330ml (P99++)!

“Oh Mickey, you’re so fine, You’re so fine, you blow my mind, Hey Mickey! Hey Mickey!” I can’t help but sing that song after checking out Mickey’s along Jupiter. No wonder they are full every night I passby Jupiter with mostly foreigners as their customers.

I’m usually curious on why it is called delicatessen and the wikipedia definition explains it exactly:

“The word delicatessen designates a kind of food store. The word is of German origin, meaning “delicacies,” and has different meanings in different countries. A North American delicatessen is often referred to, informally or affectionately, as a deli. A delicatessen is something between a fast-food restaurant and a grocery store. It offers a much wider and fresher menu than chain fast food restaurants, rarely employing fry machines and typically making sandwiches to order.”

I’m not a sausage fan but it became a tradition to have sausages and beer/ wine in Gaster Deli 6750 every Friday night with P&G office mates. Mickey’s is in a totally different level and it made Gaster a cheap version of a deli. This is the first time I’m raving about sausages and an all-meat menu. I also loved Konig Pilsner and this is the first time I’ve seen buying one by the bottle in Makati (is there any other places that serves this?). Konig was supposed to be one of the best German beers. You’ll be surprised that they have a wider range of imported German beers including a wheat beer called Franziskaner Hefewesssbier. (I’m really not an expert on beer so any comments on the imported beer list would be very much appreciated)

This would be a great place to celebrate the La Salle victory over Ateneo 🙂 Perfect place for Octoberfest!

The place is well lighted and it is pleasant to see a lot of people patronizing this place. It reminds me of Trader’s Joe ambiance (supermarket in the US) with a Starbucks type of sossy feel that serves sausages and beer instead. Check out Mickey’s Delicatessen menu:

The secret to Mickey’s sausages is that they make it themselves and they cooked it in an open wood fire grill! You can taste the smokey flavor and all the juices of the meat trapped inside and eat it while its hot.

As in any deli, there are a wide variety of cheeses, cold cuts, and wine.

The Nurnberger Pork Sausages are the best seller and you can take it out.

6 Pieces Nurnberger Pork Sausages (P180++). Served with a choice of Sauerkraut or Warm Bavarian Potato Salad.

It has the texture of a longganiza with a smokey sausage taste. Each sausage costs P30++ but it is worth it. Goes well with beer and the Potato salad was a pleasant companion to this meat.

Crispy Pork Knuckles (good for 2 persons) (P450++) or Stuffed Pork Belly (P220++). We were tempted to order these since these are highly recommended. (If you have tried it, let me know what you think of it?)

Mikey's Delicatessen-8.jpg
Spaghetti Bolognese (P270++). Literally we are dreaming about this Bolognese because of the distinctive impression it left on us. Aidan and Rache loved it and it is served with generous meat ingredients and wishing that there would also be more pasta.

Mickey’s Italian Burger (P250++). Pure Pork Meat with a light garlic flavor topped with Lettuce, Tomatoes, crispy Bacon and Cheese served in original Ciabatta bread. Love, love the pork meat! Cooking takes a while but I’m sure the wait is worth it! Same with the pizza! We’ll order it next time.

Lartizan Bread Shop beside Mickey’s. Lartizan serves old-fashioned French designs serving a lot of sour dough and French goods determined for the aristocrats of today’s society according to Johnlu Koa of French Baker. (read: The Filipino French Baker by Vangie)

Lartizan Turnover — The bestseller in Lartizan is prepared right before your eyes. This reminds me of French Baker and now I know why.

Highly recommend this place. despite the snobbish treatment of the owners. I guess it is OK to be a little bit of racist these days. Mike called me about this comment and they apologize because his wife thought that I was a spy from Santis. Oh Well… Thanks Mike for the nice feedback on this. He reassured me that the family is not racists and I also apologize for making that comment too. Peace!
