By setting up the first Cheesesteak Place in Manila (located in Rockwell), Elbert beat everyone to the punch. A lot of the foodie people I know prefer Philly Cheesesteak over the usual burger. The cheesesteak, popularized in Philadelphia, is made up of thinly sliced beef with melted cheese on a long roll.
On the first soft opening day, Elbert gave away free cheesesteak to all his friends and Facebook friends. We were there the day after, and the place was an instant hit in Rockwell.
The most basic cheesesteak is called the Steak Sandwich. The American Cheesesteak uses American cheddar melted on the bun. The Provolone Cheesesteak uses Provolone cheese melted on the meat itself (instead of the bun). The Pizza Cheesesteak has additional marinara sauce on top of it. All the cheesesteaks are served with grilled chopped onions.
My personal favorite is the Provolone Cheesesteak. 🙂
The thinly sliced sirloin beef made from USDA certified beef is used in all the cheesesteak sandwiches. The bits of fat in between the meat make this really yummy. I like my provolone cheese melted on top of the beef.
Essentially, it is just a burger with a different configuration. It uses thinly sliced beef and an 8-in hoagie roll. I enjoyed the bread because it’s crunchy on the outside, but chewy on the inside. It is lighter on the stomach compared to the usual burger patties.

Absolutely yummy! You will forget that this one costs almost P400. These cheesesteaks are selling like burgers in a fastfood joint. People just line up for them.
You can order the cheesesteak with large cut fries or chili fries.
