Ever since my first visit to The Cheese Steak Shop in Manila (where I was disappointed with the quality of their bread), I've always wondered how an Amoroso Roll would taste like. Some say most shops in Philly use Amoroso Rolls to serve that authentic Philly Cheese Steak experience.
In my recent trip to the Bay Area, I decided to find The Cheese Steak Shop to try out the Amoroso...
Click here for a large version of the menu.
I learned that their most popular cheese steaks are:
- 10" Philly Cheese Steak ($6.39) with white american cheese;
- King of Philly ($8.19) with extra meat and cheese on the 10" Philly Cheese Steak;
- 7" Philly Cheese Steak ($4.49); and
- Mushroom and Cheese Philly Cheese Steak.
The Amoroso Rolls are really soft but still firm enough to hold the steaks, onions, peppers, and the oil without breaking. The Amoroso makes a lot of difference because you can enjoy a soft roll that does not fill you up easily.
