Aside from Subway, we also love bun sandwiches -- beefy burger for him, crunchy and deep-fried fish sandwich for me. However, when it comes to Cheesesteak sandwiches, there's only one place in Manila that has won our hearts and loyalty. That's the Cheese Steak Shop along Amorsolo street in Makati. More than a year ago, we first visited The Cheese Steak Shop back in their first location along Arnaiz road. The move wasn't too drastic as they literally moved just a few block away. This store had more parking spaces but it can still be extremely crowded during weekdays. This is the reason why we always make it a point to eat at The Cheese Steak Shop during off-peak hours on weekends.
On our last few days in Manila, Paul and I met up with fellow bloggers Spanky, Richie and Roch for a fun Cheesesteak lunch. We tried two of their newest products -- the Breakfast Cheesesteak (add Php. 100 to your choice of Cheesesteak) and the French Dip Cheesesteak with Au Jus sauce (Php. 320 / Php. 520 / Php. 850).
The French Dip at The Cheese Steak Shop was pretty good. I love how the sauce gave even more flavor to the sandwich. It can be quite messy to eat as you'll get sauce dripping down your hands but hey, that's part of the experience.
Between the two sandwiches though, I have to be honest and say that I still love the Breakfast Cheesesteak more. I love anything with eggs and the combination of egg and steak just goes hand in hand. The boys loved the French Dip though, this just goes to show that with more choices now up on The Cheese Steak Shop's menu board, it now gives everyone a chance to pick their own favorite.
The Cheese Steak Shop is located at 140 Amorsolo street, Legaspi Village, Makati City. Call them at 555-1818 / 555-0235. They also have a branch at the Fort Strip near Fitness First.
