Backyard Burgers’ Beef Belly Cheesesteak

PHP 150 – Slow-roasted beef belly with cheese sauce


To be perfectly honest with you, I wasn’t expecting much from this cheesesteak. At just PHP 150, how good and satisfying could it possibly have been? Add to that the fact that Backyard Burgers is a burger joint, and my expectations were kept at a minimum. As it turned out however, I was wrong, and I knew it the moment this beauty was laid out in front of me.

As I’ve said before, the hoagie rolls here at Backyard Burgers are awesome. Chewy but soft, I absolutely love them. They really make their sandwiches sing, and this cheesesteak was no exception. Prior to this one, I had never before met a cheesesteak made with slow-roasted beef belly. After tonight, I have to wonder why it isn’t done more often, because the results are sensational. Melt-in-your-mouth tender, the beef belly in combination with the bread was pure bliss. Add to that the crunch and sweetness from the onions and peppers, and what I had tonight was a cheesesteak that truly blew all my expectations out of the water.

For me, this was better than their burgers. At just PHP 150, it’s a ridiculous bargain too. If you like cheesesteaks, then don’t think twice about getting this. You won’t regret it.

Verdict: 4.25 / 5
