Lazy Boy Saloon: Ale Roasted Cheese Steak

lazy-boy-saloon

Lazy Boy Saloon continues to churn out very good meals – this time IĀ decided to try their tantalizingly named Ale Roasted Cheese Steak.

As a lover of traditional, classic Philly Chessesteaks, I am always intrigued by other cheesesteak variations, especially when they are braised in Ale (in this case Belgian beer); so you can see why I was excited to try this.

The toasted french bread, as we have become accustom to is nice and soft (with a slight crisp), making it easy to bite through to the meat of the meal (no pun intended). The onions provided a pretty decent strength of flavor, and the combination of melted cheddar and Monterrey Jack cheese are a sweet, gooey addition to the sub.

The meat was delicious but also very interesting in its own way, as this Black Angus rib-eye’s braising gave the meat a tender, almost pot-roast consistency. It was a unique and delicious choice for a sandwich, and I’m glad Lazy Boy decided to go this route.

Yet another great meal from Lazy Boy Saloon in White Plains; I can only exhort you to visit this establishment, and do so often, as they are awash in good food and drink.

 

Silver Lake Pizza: Philly Cheesesteak Pizza

Now that Luca Bella has shut down, I am in need of a new place to eat a Philly Cheesesteak slice, and fortunately, I found it at Silver Lake Pizza (West Harrison, NY).

Perhaps the most important aspect of a Philly Cheesesteak pizza is the meat – if the meat is bad, it throws off the rest of the pizza. Not only was the meat on this slice delicious, it was generously plentiful. Tender, sweet, and juicy, each bite of meat was a wonderful mouthful of flavor.

The melted cheese was also sweet, and the peppers and onions provide a nice crunch to the slice. The crust is flavorful and had good texture and consistency.

But there is one thing that this slice offers you that gives it distinction – sliced jalapeno peppers. By themselves, these peppers are enough to set your mouth on fire, but mixed in with the rest of the ingredients, the inferno is muted into a sweet heat and spice that resonates well with the rest of the flavors.

This is an easy recommendation to make; go to Silver lake Pizza and get yourself a slice of Philly Cheesesteak pizza – its that good.

 

Luca Bella Closes

2417

We are sad to announce that Luca Bella pizzeria in White Plains has officially gone out of business.

Luca Bella was one of the best Pizza places in all of New York, making by far the best Vodka Sauce Pizza, Penne alla Vodka, Big Mac Pizza, Philly Cheesesteak Pizza, and many other delicious dishes; it is unclear exactly what caused their closure, but they should, and will be missed by food lovers everywhere.

The Lazy Boy Saloon: New England Clam Chowder

lazy-boy-saloon

As an avid lover of New England Clam Chowder, I am always interested when someone claims to have a can’t miss chowder. For this reason, I had to try the one that Lazy Boy describes as “one of the BEST chowders you’ll ever have” due to their “homemade secret recipe.”

This chowder was a bit different from the ones you are used to having, a good thing to be sure. The first thing I noticed is that Lazy Boy is not stingy when it comes to the amount of clams in their chowder; as this bowl is proverbially crawling with them. It is always nice to be able to get full mouthful of clams with every spoonful you take, and this serving doesn’t disappoint.

There are also quite a bit of vegetables as well as some nice, tender potatoes. This chowder had the staple trait of being nice and sweet, but also had a little bit of spice to it. Those contrasting elementsĀ of both sweetness and spice do well to counterbalance each other for a unique taste with every bite.

When you go to the Lazy Boy Saloon, you will be presented with a great selection of appetizers, one of the best being their New England Clam Chowder; its a chowder that you need to try, especially on a cold winter day in White Plains.

The Lazy Boy Saloon: Filet Tip Sub

The Lazy Boy Saloon in White Plains is in the heart of the bar scene of Mamaroneck Ave, and like many bars, makes some really good food. On tap for this review is their tantalizing Filet Tip Sub.

Served on soft, garlic-toasted french bread, this sandwich contains mouthfuls of delicious flavor. The grilled filet tips are very tender, exceptionally juicy, and seasoned very nicely. Each bite gives you a good amount of delicious steak tips, and that doesn’t even take into account the rest of the sandwich.

On top of the steak, rests freshly melted mozzarella, adding a sweet cheese blanket to this sub. The final ingredient, the caramelized onions, adds even more juice and a bit of crunch to the dish.

I thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommend the Filet Tip Sub from The Lazy Boy Saloon to any steak or sandwich lover, or really anyone who loves good food in general. Paired with some of their appetizers (which will be covered in a future review), it makes for a really satisfying meal.
