The Cheese Steak Shop and Fire Station Char Grilled Food Manila

Saturday, July 22, 2017
The Cheese Steak Shop Manila has a new sister food concept named Fire Station Char Grilled Food. Unlike The Cheese Steak Shop, Fire Station is downright Asian and is specialized in well, as the name suggests char grilled food. But it's not just your run-of-the-mill char grilled food we are talking about here. I bet my name on it, it's all about flavorful and really good char grilled food. 

I had a wonderful staycation at Makati Diamond Residences recently (which blog post will be posted soon) with some of my Manila Food Bloggers friends (a.k.a. KTG Bloggers) and before heading home, some of us visited The Cheese Steak Shop in Makati to check out The Fire Station where it is also currently housed in.

People behind Makati Diamond Residences fed us really well up to the last minute we were at their property. But being acquainted with a new food concept especially when it is under the umbrella of one of those people who we trust in Manila food landscape, is not something we could pass up. Bloated faces and all, we went there and feast to our hearts' content.


Here's a fact, despite my ardent love for it, I haven't blogged a dining experience at The Cheese Steak Shop Manila here at YedyLicious. Weird huh? Truth is, I wrote about The Cheese Steak Shop on three of the magazines I am writing for. My favorite was the one I featured in a travel magazine because I remember chasing their food truck down somewhere in San Juan City just to finish my write up. Good times.

I have visited several times and have bugged my sister who worked in Makati to grab me a cheese steak or two for take out several times as well. Now they are on their fifth year and I still consider them as one of the restaurants (sandwich shop) here in Manila which I love. 

During our recent visit, first ones on the table were Fries and the Signature Cheese Fries (Php99.00/regular, Php135.00/large). I love potatoes, that's a given fact. I love that The Cheese Steak Shop serves no non-sense potato fries meant not just as an accompaniment to the main meal but as something that can satisfy the diners as well.

My choice of feast for that day was one of my favorite combos, the Classic Philly Cheese Steak (Php280.00/7", Php399.00/10", Php720.00/15") with twister fries and iced tea. As expected, it still offers the same comforting cheesy and savory flavor that I love about The Cheese Steak Shop's sandwich. This combo is most of the time my default choice, another one is their Four Cheese variant.

My friend Glenn shared with me his Hoagie (Php300.00/7", Php485.00/10", Php750.00/15") which I also love since the lettuce, tomato, and mayo in my opinion gives this sandwich a comforting homey feel to it.

A table cannot not have bacon on it when dining with everyone's favorite, Richie of The Pickiest Eater, so naturally there is a Bacon Cheese Steak (Php320.00/7", Php520.00/10", Php850.00/15") in sighting. I honestly have not tried this cheese steak variant at The Cheese Steak Shop. Judging from Richie's reaction after every bite of his sandwich, I figured I should have it on my next visit.

One of the best thing about being with my KTG Bloggers Family is the fact that they don't judge hefty eaters because we all are hefty eaters, shameless ones at that. I think it was Spanky who ordered this Cheese Steak Rice (Php190.00) but I ended up finishing it shamelessly. No judgement. I love my friends as much as I love this Cheese Steak Rice.

We also had the Liberty Grilled Cheese (Php195.00) which I am still dreaming of to this this. One of the best grilled cheese sandwich I have ever tried, I tell you. The Cheese Steak Sandwich even in its smallest serving of 7 inches is already filling in itself but I highly recommend you to try the Grilled Cheese as well. No, do not skip the cheese steak. Get both, you won't regret it.

For those who wants to keep their calorie intake at bay, Philly Salad can be a great option (Php425.00) Our friend Bea, the EIC of Click The City who is a fitness enthusiast had this and based on her reaction, this is one good salad to be had when hankering for some greens.

Now the main reason for visiting was to try out the Fire Station's offerings. Essentially, the Fire Station offers char grilled food in surprisingly affordable price.

There are variety of options, but if you want to try a little of everything, the best bet is to go for their Set meals for only Php100.00 per set. Not all of us can eat spicy food so we had the spice level adjusted in each sets we had. The vegetables' spice level however cannot be adjusted.

So if you are craving for an authentic Cheese Steak and also hankering for some Asian grilled food, do drop by at The Cheese Steak Shop and Fire Station. I was told that they are in the process of working on finding the bet location for the Fire Station's own physical store, so that is what we can look forward to in the coming days.
