Welcome to your monthly slice of #FoodHeaven: Feed Me.
Welcome back fellow foodies to the fifth edition of #FeedMe! The column where I - Christie Heaven - will be filling my face with the most mouthwatering treats that South Wales has to offer.
I pledge allegiance to the food of the United States of America: the land of Grand Canyon sized portions, tantalising food traditions, and a pie for every state. The USA is a nation of celebration and with this issue falling on the 4th July, what better way to join the festivities than to sample MORE American fare at Fat Yankees?!
In the words of Beyonce, if you like it then you shoulda put some cheese on it. That’s what Joe Lorenza did to the famous Olivieri steak sandwich of Philadelphia in the 1940’s, and it has remained a state staple ever since! You can imagine my joy when I learned that our favourite American Diner hosts and boasts a truly traditional Philly Cheesesteak sandwich on their menu, courtesy of chef and US expat Jamie Evans. #ThankYouFatYankees
Let’s break this sandwich down into bitesize pieces! We’re talking thinly sliced rib-eye steak that’s sizzled to perfection along with onions and green peppers. Specially chosen slices of cheese similar to distinctive American cheese, melted on top and straight onto the grill. This tasty tantalising steak and cheese filling is treated to a bed of imported Italian bread, ready and waiting to be devoured.
This cheesesteak sandwich is the epitome of comfort food: quality ingredients, simply but expertly cooked with a taste that warms the soul. I was too busy humming in delight with every bite to speak. There’s an indulgent coating of cheese and the ideal ratio of melt-in-your-mouth steak filling to light toasted bread. This sandwich is not just a sandwich...it’s a great big bear hug.
Chef Jamie promises you won’t find an authentic cheesesteak of this calibre anywhere in the UK! If you want a true taste of America and flying several hours across the Atlantic looks less than likely, then Fat Yankees is your go to diner.
Head on over to Fat Yankee at 21A Woodfield Street, Morriston, SA6 8QA or find some more of their delicious food at No.6 Bar, Swansea, SA1 3LW.
