Cafe Deli by El Meson, Desa Park City [Non-Halal]

When it comes to Spanish food, El Meson/Cafe Deli has always been one of my personal favourites. The food never disappoints, and I love the Sangria there!

(Note: Cafe Deli is a spin-off from El Meson - both are under the same umbrella company & have the same menu, but the vibes I get at Cafe Deli is more chill and laid back, more "cafe-like")

There are three Cafe Deli/El Meson branches in Klang Valley - Bangsar, Desa Park City & Kiara 163. I've been to the one in Bangsar & Desa Park City and the food & service at those two branches are on par & equally good. But if I were to choose which branch I prefer, it'd be the Desa Park City branch. The outdoor seating deck overlooks the park & the lake, where you can see doggies running about with their owners :)

On weekdays between 11:30am to 3:00pm (excluding Public Holidays), Cafe Deli offers a two-course set lunch for RM25+. You may choose either a tapas and a main, or a drink and a main. I find this a really good deal, as the portion of the main course is the same as their ala-carte portion! 

You may refer to the full menu with the prices on their website.

Red Sangria (Jug) RM85
If you know you'll be drinking quite a bit, get the jug. One jug could serve around 7/8 glasses (refer to the picture above for the size!) 

[Tapas] Albondigas con patatinas

Pork and beef meatballs in tomato sauce with fried potato cubes served with slices of bread. The meatball was tender and flavourful, I like :) 

[Tapas] Jamon serrano on tomato bruschetta
The size of the tapas when you order from their lunch menu is seemingly smaller from their ala carte tapas portion size - I'd say it is a decent size...because their mains are full-sized and can be really filling! 
Ultimate Pork Burger
Pork burger served with a side of fries. The ala carte price for this burger is RM21. 

Ah, a bite into happiness. The burger was simple but satisfying, the patty was juicy, and there was nothing too fancy, but good enough for me :) By the end of the meal, I felt utterly stuffed.  


I've paid a separate visit to Cafe Deli on a weekend to try out their breakfast menu, which is available daily until 3pm. You may refer to the full breakfast menu on their websiteThe lunch menu definitely offers a better value for money, understandable as it is only available on weekdays. 

Breakfast Butty with Pulled Pork RM24
I can't help but feel a little disappointed when the dish was served - because the portion feels small, perhaps due to the planting. I thought the breakfast butty looks lonely on this plate, with some cherry tomatoes on the sides. Having some fries on the sides would be great BUT then again, it is breakfast food, and fries aren't your typical breakfast food. 

Taste-wise was fine. The pulled pork was yummy, but I think I was influenced by the appearance & plating of this dish, and was really hopping for fries ;P
Mumbai Eggs Kejriwal RM23 (Vegetarian) 
Brown toast topped with spiced scrambled eggs with sliced chillies & chilli flakes and a sunny side up egg, served with avocado and spicy brinjal.

The plating of this dish was certainly more "vibrant" compared to the breakfast butty. Loved how flavourful the dish was - with the myriads of colour and spice. Be warned though that the chili is a bit spicy!
Truffle Fries RM24
Served with shaved parmesan. Was feeling peckish and in need of fries after the breakfast butty, we ordered a side of truffle fries to complete the experience. 

If you want a hearty, yet value-for-money lunch, go for their weekdays set lunch! Though beware of post-lunch food coma :p 

Be sure to make a reservation on weekends, especially if you'd like the outdoor seatings, as they get pretty crowded on weekends!
