Jersey’s Thursdays: Wildwood Cheesesteak & Red Sox Suck Chicken Cheesesteak

Yeah yeah, I know, I said we were going to probably do only one sandwich per week, but these week I missed breakfast so we went for two smaller ones. Not that this week’s sandwiches are small or anything, but compared to last week’s massive hoagie, most sandwiches are.

Let’s start with the Wildwood Cheese Steak:

Wildwood Cheese Steak Cross Section - Grilled steak, sliced handmade meatballs, red sauce, crumbled bleu cheese, and provolone cheese. ($8.99)

As with everything I’ve had at Jersey’s so far, this was a very tasty sandwich. Sherrel said that if you took any food and put their meatballs on it, he’s probably like it. I think he has a good point. Their meatballs are outstanding. They’re very flavorful and they melt in your mouth. Because of their soft texture, they tend to blend very well with whatever they’re adjacent to, which in this case, is the grilled steak. The two blended seamless. The two cheese also dance nicely together. The bleu cheese makes the sandwich pop while the provolone adds the rounding smoothness to the rest of the flavors. I wonder if I should start trying to give these sandwiches ratings…anyway, I definitely enjoyed this one.

Moving on to the Red Sox Suck Chicken Cheese Steak:

Red Sox Suck Chicken Cheese Steak Cross Section - Grilled chicken steak, smoked ham, barbecue sauce, and swiss cheese. ($8.99)

This sandwich is different that the previous. While it’s similar in smoothness, it’s very sweet on the palate. Even the natural sodium in the chicken wasn’t enough to hold the sweetness of the ham and barbecue sauce at bay. This sandwich wasn’t as complex as the Wildwood, but its message was very strong and enjoyable. I would actually love to have some bleu cheese on this for the gustatory contrast. I would definitely eat this again, especially when I’m in the mood for something sweet. I would also argue that this is the “lightest” sandwich I’ve eaten from Jersey’s.

Jersey’s Thursdays is weekly ongoing quest to review the entire menu at Jersey’s Café in Carmel, IN. For more information, check out the initial post about the project.
