Yeah Baby, Yeah!

Greetings Readers!

This week my adventures found me at one of my favorite places in Los Angeles: Swingers.

Now you may not know that this is one of my favorite places because it's been quite some time since I've been there, but I used to visit there quite often. A few times a week in fact.

Having landed on their front doorstep by luck, I decided to walk in and try one of my favorite sandwiches there for review here. Maybe it's just me though, but something felt a little different on this visit, like something had changed.

Oh well, the sandwich should still be good, right?

I ordered the stuffed grilled cheese which has jack and cheddar cheeses, sliced tomatoes, guacamole, and grilled onions on grilled sourdough bread.

It really sounds delicious, and I remember it being amazing, but this sandwich fell short this time.

The blend of jack and cheddar cheeses were great and the guacamole and grilled onions were a delicious addition. Even the grilled sourdough was excellent.

It was the tomatoes that steered this entire sandwich wrong though. They were too watery and with very little taste, essentially washing out the taste of the other items on the sandwich. When i pulled out the tomato from the second half, the taste returned and the sandwich was much more enjoyable.

It'd definitely recommend removing the tomato to anyone looking to try this sandwich. Maybe next time I'll even ask the waiter to leave it off as well.

Until next week, Readers!

P.S. - Philadelphia readers, I will be back in the 215 at the end of this month. If you have suggestions as to where I should visit for a great sandwich while I'm home, please leave the suggestion in the comments section. Looking forward to trying a number of different places.

  1. Hey!!!!

    I am a huge fan of Spataro's in the Reading Terminal. I recommend the Italian Hoagie with the special vinagerette dressing. Check it out! I promise you won't regret it. :-)

  2. On Saturday night we checked out a place called Phil's Tavern in Blue Bell:
    They had a lobster cheesesteak sandwich that was amazing. Huge chunks of lobster on it.

    Another steak sandwich that is absolutely fantastic is the Adirondack Filet at the Ugly Moose in Manayunk. Filet cooked to order on a nice garlicy, cheesy roll.

    I mention these in case you wanted to get away from the usual Pats/Geno's/Dinics/Dallesandros reviews.

    Unfortunately I have yet found a sandwich I have fallen in love with in my area...
