Fast Food: Earle's Delicatessen
Budget: Php. 110.00 - 250.00
We usually go to Earle's Delicatessen whenever we are in Ortigas and in the mood for deli. They have a nice selection of sausages, cold meats and cheeses which are low sodium and preservative-free, and you can also order these as a sandwich which you can eat in their dining area.
So here are the sandwiches that we've tried:
There have two kinds of bread to choose from: baguette and wheat bread. We haven't tried their wheat bread yet, but their baguette is soft and not difficult to eat.
Their ham, bacon and other meats were not as salty as the ones that we've tried before, so those of you who are used to eating salty stuff might not find it as satisfying. Their sausages were pretty good and flavorful and had that satisfying snap when you bite into it. Overall, I think that their prices are fairly reasonable, given the quality of their food.
They also offer coffee and milk teas, which pairs well with sandwiches/subs. Since I like milk tea, I tried their sencha milk tea and I actually liked it. Earle's milk tea is not too sweet and that is the kind of milk tea I like.
I just wish they also paired their sandwiches with potato chips like Chuck's Deli. They sell potato chips (Lay's) but it isn't included in the meal, you have to buy it separately.
