Lazy Boy Saloon: Ale Roasted Cheese Steak

lazy-boy-saloon

Lazy Boy Saloon continues to churn out very good meals – this time I 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.

Tighe’s Tavern: Philly Cheesesteak

Tighe’s Tavern in White Plains is a nice little bar/restaurant that serves one good Philly Cheesesteak.

Held together by soft, delicious bread, this Cheesesteak utilizes meat in such a way to make it unique. There is a definite fatty element to the meat, as if you were eating an actual steak. This wasn’t unwelcome at all, as it added an extra flavor component to the meat itself. I can honestly say I’ve never had a Philly where I can taste fat in the meat, so this was a nice surprise.

The melted cheese was nice and sweet, the onions, crunchy, and the green peppers were perfect. All together, every ingredient of this sandwich worked very well together and provides another good option for anyone craving a good Philly.

Tighe’s makes good food and is in an easily accessible location (downtown White Plains), so there is really no excuse to not visit; so I hope you do, soon.

The bread was soft and of good quality, and the meat was tender, well seasoned, and steak like. The melted cheese was just right, and abundance of onions were sweet, juicy, and crunchy. To top it all off, this sandwich had a moist, and tasty gravy throughout.

Connecticut: Philly’s: Phive All Day

20150622_121717

I have to admit that I have been looking forward to reviewing this sandwich ever since I was introduced to it in a Daym Drops video; and now I’m finally able to.

The Phive All Day is an amazing sandwich. Crafted after Daym Drops’ slogan “Five All Day Son!”, it contains “five ounces of rib eye, five pieces of bacon, five pieces of American cheese, onions, McNabb sauce (house made 1000 Island Dressing) and a little bit of (cheese) whiz.” So, what does this monster sandwich look like?

Look at the way that bacon shines, and the way the melted cheese oozes on to and grips the bread, as well as filling every nook, cranny, and crevice of the meat; its a beautiful sight to behold.

The five ounces of rib eye were rich, delicious, and made even better by the rest of the ingredients. The bacon was how all bacon should be; crispy, salty, and all over the place. The melted cheese, both American and Whiz, was creamy and smooth; they penetrated all aspects of the sandwich like a warm blanket of velvety goodness.

The fried onions provided a sweet little crunch, and their McNabb sauce stood out with it’s wonderful flavor, and joined the cheese in permeating every inch of the sandwich (plus as a Redskins fan I do have somewhat of an affinity for Mr. McNabb, no matter how his tenure in D.C. turned out).

Encasing these ingredients is a wonderfully soft selection of bread, joining together all these wonderful flavors that meld so perfectly. This just so happens to be a messy meal as well, so be prepared to have your hands covered in finger-licking goodness.

Eating this hoagie was an absolute joy; the only bad thing is that after writing about it, I really want another one! (sadly, I’m not often in their neck of the woods)

This sandwich is one of the best I’ve ever tasted, and so much credit must be given to Daym Drops and the Boys down at Philly’s; great job guys, I can’t wait to come back, and I hope everyone else does too.

Silver Lake Pizza: Philly Cheesesteak

20150414_154423

Philly Cheesesteaks are without a question my favorite food; which is why its such a good thing that Silver Lake Pizza (located in my hometown of Silver Lake) makes the best Philly Cheesesteak I have had to date.

In brief, Silver Lake Pizza provides taste, texture, and quantity in their Cheesesteaks; utilizing great ingredients to produce a great sandwich. The outside of the bread has a good chewiness to it while the inside is soft and laced with the juices of the sub’s fillings.

The American cheese on this sandwich is perfectly melted, so much so that even if you don’t like American cheese in general (and I do not), you will find it works perfectly in this context.

The meat is a sweetly seasoned steak that works great with the cheese, onions and peppers; and these peppers are not too hot or overly sweet, but rather bring a highly accessible taste and texture combination. It must also be said that there is a good amount of grease in this Philly, but it only helps to enhance all the other flavors held within.

If you are looking for a great tasting Philly Cheesesteak that is also satisfyingly filling, look no further than Silver Lake Pizza. I’ve been eating Cheesesteaks for years, and have yet to find one that matches the overall product that Silver Lake produces on a regular basis; size, taste, and satisfaction will all be found in this one sandwich.
