Simply a delight! (Philadelphia Sandwiches, North Hollywood)

There's a lot of eating establishments I have to thank my in-laws for introducing me to. One is Philadelphia Sandwiches in North Hollywood. My brother and sister-in law used to live right across the street and know the owner pretty well. I remember vividly when I had my first Philly cheese steak at their other location which is now closed. It was my sister-in law, my wife, and me.... Mr. Gohan. The three of us were on the hunt for a venue for our wedding, and since we were close by and hungry, we ate here. We called my brother-in law to join us and he happily and quickly obliged. That was my first time, but everyone else's nth time. I didn't know what to expect. I am not really a sandwich type of guy, but everyone assured me that this was going to be good. And boy... I was definitely hooked! The bread is really good. A perfect balance of airiness and crispiness. The caramelized onions were oh so sweet! And the bell peppers add that extra something. And you can't forget about the meat. This is not your typical Philly cheese steak sandwich. The meat is chopped up on the grill and is combined with all the accompaniments to meld into perfection. Every time I come here, I wish I could order two sandwiches. I probably could finish them too. They are that good! I can't forget to mention the French Fries. The fries are absolutely delicious. They come out piping hot and cooked to perfection. Perfectly crisp on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside. One would be remissed to mention the owner. The owner and his wife are the most delightful and cheerful people. Philadelphia Sandwiches in North Hollywood is simply a delight!
