Exactly 3 years ago in (almost always) sunny Manila, The Cheese Steak Shop opened its doors to the hungry public of the Philippines. That was the time when my taste buds were elevated to higher standards of cheese steak sandwich appreciation. "This is the REAL thing" my mind has been telling me. I've later found my favorites such as the Breakfast Cheese Steak paired with a cup of crunchy onion rings. I knew that when we left Manila, this will be one of those restaurants that I'll miss terribly. Oh for two years, I continued to long for that delicious piece of cheese steak sandwich that's packed with thinly-sliced tender beef and a generous serving of veggies. How I wish they'd come to Singapore.
Check out what we enjoyed during our lunch at Cheese Steak Shop Singapore that day:
Classic Philly Cheesesteak (S$8.90 / S$12.90)
Paul always loves sticking to the basic. Whenever we have burger, he'd go for the original flavored ones with the usual toppings -- lettuce, cheese and tomatoes. Despite the long list of fancier versions, he'd always stick to the basic ones. Just like for his cheese steak, no amount of prodding for him to try something more fancy could make him change his mind. He's truly a no-frills guy who likes it simple, straight-forward yet truly satisfying.
Mushroom Cheesesteak (S$10.90 / S$14.90)
As for me, I like it always with a twist. More often than not I'd go for the ones loaded with mushroom, drizzled with truffle oil or
Deluxe Cheesesteak (S$10.90 / S$14.90)
Trust O to be really adventurous with his food. This is one reason why food tripping with him is always so fun because he would be the one who'd gamely order the unique dishes on the menu. More often than not, he has been pretty lucky as his choices are always so yummy. I was able to try a bit of O's Deluxe Cheesesteak and I have to say that this is one that I'll order on my second visit. It's an upgraded version of the Pizza Cheesesteak due to the inclusions of tomato sauce and mushrooms. Yum!
The Cheese Steak Shop is really the place to enjoy authentic Philly Cheese Steak at such reasonable prices. Be sure to always get a cup of sides with your sandwich for a better dining experience.
