Who says Valentine’s can only be celebrated on February 14th? Well, The Cheese Steak Shop located in Makati has a month-long Valentine promo for lovers out there. But wait, it’s not only for couples. Love for friends, love for family and mutual love for food can be celebrated too!
My friend’s birthday happens to be on February so I decided to invite her for lunch. To make it special, I brought her to The Cheese Steak Shop to partake on the Valentine Royal Feast promo of the international franchise.
As the tagline of The Cheese Steak Shop goes, “Caution: May be Habit Forming!“. It’s true! You see, after having visited The Cheese Steak Shop, I couldn’t resist but visit it yet again.
We went to the counter and asked for the Valentine Royal Feast. We were told what items are included in the promo. These are 1 King of Philly, 1 Queen of Philly, Unlimited Valentine Dessert Buffet, 2 Specialty Drinks and 1 Teddy Bear. You get to see more of what we had as you continue to read this blog post 🙂
While we waited for our orders to arrive, my friend was playing games on the touch screen monitor near the counter. It’s funny that I didn’t even know it existed in Cheese Steak Shop! That was a cool feature of The Cheese Steak Shop!
I, on the other hand, being a romantic (in spite of being single), went to the Cheesy Cheesy Lines section near the entrance. It was fun reading the thoughts of the people who posted and shared their cheesy lines! hahaha! Some were romantic, some funny and some utterly corny!
My favorite was this post that says, “I lost my number. Can I have yours?“. Yiheeeeeeee! That’s an awesome pick-up line :))
When we got back to our table, our orders started to come in. February is almost at an end but you still have a few days to catch the Valentine Royal Feast of The Cheese Steak Shop. For only Php 1,500 per couple, you get high-quality food and a souvenir!
2 Specialty Drinks
The specialty drink that the Cheese Steak Shop prepared is a combination of 7-up soft drink with strawberry syrup. You can also opt to just get the normal soda. Your choice 🙂
1 King of Philly
I got the King of Philly which is a 10-inch Cheese Steak Sandwich with 50% more beef and cheese compared to the normal Philly Cheesesteak sandwich.
I didn’t ask for the peppers and onions to be removed as I wanted to have the complete experience. I also believed that those ingredients would make the taste more delicious than usual.
It was a HUGE sandwich. I couldn’t believe that I actually finished all that! The meat was just overwhelming! As you can see in the photo above, the sandwich was filled with generous amount of beef! It was the best Cheese Steak sandwich I have eaten so far!
1 Queen of Philly
My good friend Maus got the Queen of Philly which is a 7-inch Chicken Sandwich with 50% more meat and cheese than normal chicken sandwich. The difference between the Queen of Philly from the King of Philly are the main ingredient (beef vs chicken) and the size of the sandwich (10-inch vs 7-inch).
If I’m to choose, I would have chosen the 7-inch as the 10-inch was just too big for me! hahaha! I asked my friend if she liked the chicken sandwich (it was her first time at The Cheese Steak Shop). She said it was really good and she liked the bread a lot.
I then told her that The Cheese Steak Shop is using Amoroso’s Bread & Rolls which are imported from Philadelphia. That’s how serious The Cheese Steak Shop in Manila is in bringing the authentic Philly Cheesesteak to us.
Unlimited Valentine Dessert Buffet
We were too full already after eating those yummy sandwiches so we ended up just tasting a few of the dessert items that Cheese Steak Shop has prepared.
For people who have big appetite then I’m sure you’ll get yourselves a handful of brownies, chocolates, pudding and pastillas. You can have unlimited servings of them and it’s more than enough to satisfy your sweet cravings.
I, on the other hand, just got myself the strawberry pudding and the pastillas. If you happen to be there last monday lunch time, you would have noticed that there were no more pastillas left. I kinda finished every single pastillas in the dessert buffet table. Forgive me 😛
1 Teddy Bear
We get to bring home a teddy bear! We can choose between 3 colors: dark brown, white and light brown. I’ve chosen the dark brown as I have a big white teddy bear already at home.
It is important to note that the souvenir is not a normal souvenir. As I examined the bear, I noticed that it’s actually a branded teddy bear. If you’ve heard of Harrods, a department store in London, then you would know that this stuffed bear is of high-quality.
If you’re on a date, then your partner will love the Harrods Teddy Bear. It’ll be a great Valentine’s gift! Cute, sweet and nice! 🙂
The Valentine Royal Feat at The Cheese Steak Shop does not have the usual romantic set-up (dimly-lit with candle-light arrangement). However, a lot of people like the casual ambiance and The Cheese Steak Shop has exactly that. Only one week left for the promo, there’s still enough time for you to catch up!
