Post Celebration Sandwiches

Greetings, Dear Readers!

I hope you enjoyed last week's Top 10 post and are finished with recovering from the celebrations of the blog turning 100.

Speaking of recovery, this week's sandwich came to me after a night of drinking and dancing at the Echoplex for a joint birthday of two friends.

As most of you may know, after a night at a bar, there usually is nothing better than some greasy diner food to prepare you for going to sleep and waking up hangover-free. Or at least, this is how I work.

Heading down to the Brite Spot after the Echoplex (on a few short steps away), we saddled up to a booth and stared at our menus. Debating on a number of great post-drinking meals, I finally settled on a steak sandwhich. Reading the menu, this sounded a bit like a high-cass cheesesteak, so it was definitely worth trying.

The sandwich for the most part was enjoyable. The steak was flavorful, and the cheddar cheese was melted throughout, but then the problems set in. The grilled peppers and onions were a bit too soggy and I had a number of pieces of steak that were a bit chewy.

Unlike a regular cheesesteak, these pieces of steak were more similar to roughly chopped cubes than thin slices, which lead to occasional fatty pieces.

Now this bad sandwich review should not scare anyone away from the Brite Spot. I've eaten there numerous times and have enjoyed all of the other meals I've had there (especially ones after the Echoplex), but I have to thoroughly caution you against ordering this steak sandwich.

It tried, but did not live up to any sort of cheesesteak standard.

Until next week, Readers!

  1. It not only sounds underwhelming, I had to embiggen that picture just to get a sense of what it looked like. Very eh sort of sandwich, with the whitest looking cheddar I've ever seen.
