Pats The Philly Way | Richmond

Tree Huggin Hippy & Chips

A Philly cheese steak place in Richmond? Australia? Really?  Yes, really! This trendy little diddy had a professional fit-out on the same level I’d expect to see from a major franchise. But it’s not (yet, at least):  Pat’s The Philly Way.

Being from America myself, I was curious to check it out, and Shawn loved the cheese steaks he’s had in America….so we had to give this new kid on the block a try!

Always happy to see a vegetarian option on any menu – I got the Tree Huggin Hippy with grilled eggplant stuffed into a ciabata roll. Roast pepper, tasty cheese and fried egg also joined the party with a tomato relish and tzatziki. The sandwhich as really good, but to be honest – I could’ve lived without the egg…don’t think it really added anything special.

Just Grazin Cheese Steak

Shawn ordered the classic cheese steak called Just Grazin also on a ciabata roll. Seared steak, carmelised onion, lettuce, aioli, and relish – he was pretty pleased with the taste and could’ve probably eaten the full sized version!

We also got Pats Chips with herb salt – nicely cooked, crispy & tasty.  All in all a pretty good meal, it doesn’t compare to the sloppy American style cheese steaks in the USA…but a pretty good effort for down under!  Definitely give them a shot!
