Eat Street in the Philippines... For real?

Are you a fan of the Eat Street show in Nat Geo Adventure HD Channel?  Well, we are.  Boyfie and I love watching this show as this showcases different food trailers in the US.  Yes, you read it right... food trailers are trailer trucks that are converted into mini stalls and for some are mini fast food stores.  We really love the concept and we're thinking one time to bring the concept here in the Philippines as there is no one doing this kind of business yet here except for the jolly jeeps in Makati.

On our way to boyfie's home while we were avoiding the heavy traffic in C5 and in Edsa, we passed by Capitol Commons in Pasig (near Ynares Coliseum).  We saw a caravan as we were nearing the area.  We then saw a couple of food trailers and a video camera (just like the one that is being used in filming movies) covering the happenings in the area.  We thought they are just made just for filming or commercials, but when we saw some cars are parking on the sides, we did not hesitate finding a parking slot too.  There are over 10 food trailers offering different menu selection.  Their individual food trailers were designed with a colorful and artistic concepts to attract the customers.  

Boyfie was craving for a Philly cheese steak since last week and when he spotted the 'The Cheese Steak Shop', I already know that was the one that we will try.  This food trailer as stated in their logo offers Original Philadelphia Steak Sandwiches since 1982, really? I'm not sure if they are a franchise from the US, but I haven't seen them featured in the show yet... Or maybe i missed it.

We ordered the 7" Philly Cheese Steak for P280.  We chose beef over chicken and a Jalapeno as an additional topping. Jalapeno is like chilly pickles (i really don't know how to describe it) and has a strong flavor that will really make your meals to have a twist.  The food is great, i'm just looking for more cheese. :)

We also had gelato for dessert.  I normally order pistachio for gelato but this time I chose the Ferrero flavor for P100 as I will be sharing it with boyfie and there was no regret...  Sarap!
