Philadelphia, PA - Tin Pan Alley Tavern, Huntingdon Valley, PA. It was a day of cheesesteaks with Amigo Dan as we continued our journey at the Tin Pan Alley Tavern.
The Tin Pan Alley Tavern
This place looks a lot different from when Jim McCloskey was cutting high school to day drink. I am not sure what the statute of limitations is on cutting school and underage day drinking is. If it's over 40 years, I'm just trying to be funny and I do not know Jim McCloskey.
This was a fun stop and it looks like the Tin Pan Alley Tavern has gotten a very nice facelift and new name since I attended Lower Moreland High School. Not a lot of parking in the back but they do have parking as well as outside seating.
We got lucky because Tuesday is $5 Cheesesteak day and they had a nice steady flow of what appeared to be regular’s getting their discounted cheesesteaks. This place has a lot of energy, you can hear grill man Mark in the background of the video.
We asked him to cook our Cheesesteak the way he eats them and you can hear his enthusiasm in the video as he’s working the grill. Our cheesesteak came with fried onions, mushrooms, hot peppers, sweet peppers, cubed pickles, and American cheese.
This was a flavorful cheesesteak, the pickles really stood out and it was a very moist cheesesteak. The cheese is a quandary. It was sliced American cheese laid on the roll and then everything else was put on top of it. This actually worked out well because it kept the moisture from seeping into the roll and causing a rolling failure.
The problem is that I like my cheese mixed in. Sliced cheese on the bottom to protect the roll and more cheese mixed in with the other ingredients, now we're talking! This cheesesteak was made with love and that is always a great thing!
