American Cheesesteak - DOV voucher

The American Cheesesteak Co. Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato After Dine Out Vancouver 2016 at The American Cheesesteak Company, I had to come back to use my vouchers. Somehow I ended up with three, so happily I managed to get a couple of friends to come with me before they expired at the end of this month.

This time around, I decided to try their most basic and traditional Cheesesteak, and chose the Philly ($10, cheese + sauteed onions) with American Cheese. I wanted to know what the fuss was about that started this.

Huge mistake.
It was horribly boring.
Also, "American Cheese" is white like mozza but kinda tastes like Kraft cheese singles. Ick.

Sauce -- any kind of sauce -- would make it infinitely better, and I looked wistfully at my friends enjoying theirs that cost them just a couple of dollars more. They had the Koagie ($13) and Cowboy ($12 and their most popular one).

Even without our $5 vouchers, price for portion is excellent. You're getting maybe more meat than two McDonalds burgers that weigh in at around $8-$10. My girl-friends couldn't finish their buns and were too stuffed to try more than maybe a tablespoon of frozen custard.

Speaking of which: The Dine Out Vancouver offer also included a free scoop of frozen custard, and a "scoop" is like a full cup's worth! I got the coconut, one of the rotating flavours they have. It had a good, fairly strong coconutty flavour but was otherwise too close to ice cream in texture for me to discern a clear difference between frozen custard and ice cream. If you're worried about the custard part and thinking eggy, flavour, don't worry.

Despite the large portion of a scoop, price for portion you are probably better off getting a full $6 frozen tub to go.
