Weekend Food Choices Week 18: Counting Our Blessings

Last weekend’s tragedy was a wake up call for all of us. Sometimes, we dont realize how much we have until we loose it…

Hubby and i have always valued our weekends together. We decided it was much too dangerous to venture out last weekend to de-stress. And after all the fear and chaos, we needed something simple and familiar to soothe our hunger.

I feared they might be closed. I actually tried to call twice the number posted on the Internet before we left the house but i was told it was incorrect. Poor resident must be ready to change their number as I can imagine they get such calls all the time!

And the Winner Is…

because we were just not totally satisfied with the cheesesteak we ate last sunday, hubby and i decided we would try the philly cheesesteak at Charlie’s Grill so that we would have something to compare the new kid in rockwell to.

when we got to Charlie’s there was a seat right in front of the TV which was showing the PBA finals (Alaska vs Talk&Text) in the last few minutes of the 4th quarter, the 2 teams tied.  happy that we were seated without having to wait, hubby approached the counter to order.  the waiter told him that they were out of the “starving sized” cheesesteak (P380) so we had to do with the “hungry size” which cost P220.  and because we are still on a diet (well, sort of…) we just shared.  ok, we did order a basket of fries to share too!

when the dish was served hubby was happy to see that it came with salsa and a whole jalapeno pepper.

the slices of meat was thicker and the mixture included cheese, onions and green bell pepper.

the bread was less baguette-y but the filling made up for it totally!  the mixture of the steak strips, onions and bell pepper was delicious!  did you notice the globs of cheese on the meat?  well,  you sure will taste it!  and because the steak was cut thicker, the texture of the filling was much more satisfying.  im not a large fan of bell peppers and thought that it might overpower the filling just by looking at the sandwich but it did not do that at all.  it just blended well with everything else to make one good, no, great, no, excellent philly cheesesteak!

with a better texture, cheesier taste, and more value for your money, Charlie’s Cheesesteak takes home the trophy!

YUUUUMMMM!!!!!

…oh yeah, the ball game was an edge-of-your-seat play (and to think were not even PBA fans!) so paired with our satisfying dinner,  it contributed to a great dining experience!
