Philadelphia, PA - Wolf Street Pizza, Philadelphia, PA. - I ended up on Wolf Street by way of Browns Mills, New Jersey, and it was good to see the old stomping grounds but even better to see Wolf Street Pizza.
Philadelphia Cheesesteak Adventure at Wolf Street Pizza & Grill
Wolf Street Pizza is pretty close to Passyunk Avenue, but with the direction of the one-way streets, it might as well be 5 miles away from Passyunk.
I have been to Wall Street Pizza in the past with my younger daughter (we walked because she lived nearby), and we liked the pizza very much, and I wish on that trip and/or this trip I looked at the menu.
The pizza crust and Roll for my cheesesteak were terrific and tasted very much Wolf Street pizza made.
Looking at the menu online, it confirmed that they make their own bread, and its a traditional pizza shop and takeout only.
If I had looked at the menu, I would have tried the Rocky or Wolf Street Special. Instead, I ordered while I was there, so I don't know what happened.
I got a cheesesteak with fried onions and mushrooms, and I loved the Roll. This was another what I now call 'Cheesesteak light.'
There were a lot of fried onions or mushrooms that did not spend much time on the grill. They did not have the same texture as your typical fried onions and mushrooms and tasted lighter and airier.
The meat was good but overwhelmed by the awesome Roll and light, airy onions, and mushrooms. The cheese was pretty much lost in everything, making a very very good mushroom and onion sandwich with some steak and cheese.
I like this Cheesesteak, It just has a much different texture than a traditional pizza shop cheesesteak. Could I substitute different with better? A good debate for another day.
