Weekend Food Trip at: Spatzle Euro Market Cafe

When you combine good food with great company, the day always turns out even better than expected!  Not even traffic could ruin my day!

That was several days ago when I had a lunch meeting with a good friend, owner of Girl Stuff and Solique polishes.  We were supposed to talk about the Holiday collection but as always, we ended up catching up with personal matters!  

I'm actually a "sweet" person to have lunch/dinner date with!  I always like to share our food because 1. It is sweeter that way and 2. the main reason is, both of us can try out more dishes!  Smart move right?

Janina wanted to try out Spatzle and I'm glad she picked that restaurant because I always pass by that restaurant and wondered how their food tastes like!  I'm glad we've decided to split up our meals because we got the best of both worlds!

Chicken and Fresh Mushrooms in Cream
Grilled chicken fillet with fresh shiitake mushrooms and cream

I don't know the real presentation of this dish because I requested for the cream to be set on the side because I actually like to control the amount of "sauce" I eat!  It's not a diet thing, it's more of making sure I like how my meals taste like and if I don't like the sauce, at least I don't put the rest of the food to waste!

Overall, the meal is filling!  You get fried potato "pie" underneath while you have strips of chicken with mushrooms and strips of crunchy onions!  I actually liked this dish a lot but I prefer to consume half and share the other half!

The Spatz Burger
200g Homemade grilled USDA burger goodness on warm brioche, pesto cream cheese,
mushroom sand crispy onions served with spiced house made chips.

An open-faced burger!  I actually enjoyed this, the meat was cooked medium well and I like how juicy the beef was on the inside!  Another good dish but very filling too!

Trio of Assorted Cakes
Choice of Nutella Cheesecake, Red Velvet, Sticky Toffee Pudding
Zucchini, Xanadu

Funny how I was complaining on how full I was after trying out both dishes, I can't seem to say no when I was offered sweets!  And the perfect way to try out their sweets is by ordering their TRIO Assorted Cakes.  For this one in particular, I picked Nutella Cheesecake, Red Velvet and Xanadu.  All 3 cakes are yummy I can't seem to pick a favorite!

Overall, service is really good and I love how cozy the restaurant felt!  Maybe, it was a non-peak hours when I had our lunch there but I like the overall ambiance!

What other restaurants in Shangrila East Wing do you highly recommend me to try?
Have you tried Spatzle?  Any other dish recommendations?

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!


  1. My favorite restaurant! The beef and mushroom spatzle is my comfort food (the spaztle is only tiny pasta in cream though, if you were expecting something special). Try the citrus soda! (warning though: the sangria is awful)

    1. ah thanks for the recommendation! and the citrus soda? Good warning!


I'd love to hear from you! Feel free to comment your questions, suggestions and just anything you may want to say! Keep smiling and stay happy!
