Swiss Deli Restaurant was one of our go to restaurants when we were living in Davao. They were also our first stop for deli meat and sausages, being close to the office and our house really helped too. Their menu consists of a number of classic Swiss dishes and other European fare.
I was surprised to find out they’ve opened a branch in BF Paranaque when I received an email from them to give them a visit. The BF branch was opened by Rachel Kehl and her husband Jeffry Lua. They’ve been selling the Swiss Deli sausages in Manila for a few years already and after constant prodding, Rachel’s dad finally agreed to let them open a branch here. Make sure to look for the spotted cow outside, which thy also have in the Davao branches.
They’ve got two big displays filled with sausages and other deli meat so you can hop down and get some quickly.
Here are the dishes that we had that afternoon in Swiss Deli Restaurant BF Paranaque.
Mediterranean Pasta Salad (P165). Their best selling salad filled with salad green, tuna chunks, pasta tubes and finished with Italian dressing. This one is tasty and a real steal for a generous serving that can be a meal in itself.
Sausage Platter (P390). How can one go to Swiss Deli and not have their famous sausages. The platter includes Veal Bratwurst, Hungarian Sausage, Frankfurter, and English Banger. My favorites are the Hungarian sausage and the English banger. Served “pulutan” style for easy sharing and perfect drinking partner.
The first thing we looked for on the menu was the Special Iced Tea, their homemade lychee flavored iced tea that we’ve been ordering for many many years. They call it House Blend Ice Tea (P115) in BF Paranaque.
Cheese Fondue (P600). Swiss Deli makes this the authentic way using Appenzeller, Ementhal, and Gruyere cheese plus wine. If you don’t want alcohol you can opt to have their remove it when ordering.
This is served in a huge red bowl with bubbling and aromatic cheese with a heating element underneath. They give you bread pieces to dip it into but I also liked dipping the sausages into it for a gooey and meaty combination. This can be shared by at least 4 people.
Pork Knuckle (P385). Crispy cured pork knuckle served with home made sauerkraut and potatoes. The skin was crispy but oil free while the meat was tasty with flavor all throughout. I had to recheck the price as this one is quite a steal.
Marinated Beef Ribs (P300). Three big pieces of tender beef ribs in finger licking good sauce and a side of spatzle. These were good but the pork knuckle was so much better for me.
Apple Strudel (P120). This apple strudel is made in Davao and shipped over to Manila a couple of times a week because their kitchens does not have baking equipment. Treat your taste buds to this classic dessert with a play on hot and cold.
Carrot Cake (P120). This one looks really similar to their Caramel cake since it has the cream cheese frosting and crushed pistachios and almond toppings. Moist cake that’s not too sweet with some interesting nutty textures from the pistachios and almonds.
Feeling the craving to try Swiss Deli Restaurant in BF then you should take advantage of their 1st year anniversary promo.
I love that Swiss Deli has opened up in Manila but too bad it’s way out in the South. They serve wonderful food with great prices, no wonder they are doing well with a steady stream of regulars. I’m convincing them to branch out so it’s closer to home (ulterior motives).
