Homeboys: The Neighbourhood Cheesesteak Burger

Homeboys were doing a new burger this weekend called “The Neighbourhood Cheesesteak”

At first I got all excited when I saw that Homeboys were doing a cheesesteak as I really love those and I haven’t found anywhere nearby yet to get a decent one.

Then I realised that it was actually a burger 🙁

It was OK though as it turned out to be a really good one!

It was described as being “aged patty, grilled peppers n onions, kalbi skirt steak, gochujang queso, bibimbap sauce and house pickles served on a Tough Mary’s bakehouse brioche bun

There are lots of great flavours all mingling together underneath the lid of that Tough Mary Brioche Bun. It looks to be a bit of a messy eat and you know what it really was, at least a 3 napkin job.

I liked the way that the gochujang queso and the bibimbap sauce combined to make a sweet savoury tangy and spicy coating for the burger.

To make it a truer cheesesteak experience I would have liked the steak to have been slice wafer thin and mixed up with the peppers and onion and the queso cheese, but I guess you don’t get everything that you want 🙂

Overall a pretty good burger from the lads at Homeboys. Would love a real Cheesesteak though one day 🙂
