Philadelphia, PA - It was a lovely Tuesday morning in August, and it got even better when I found out my Amigo Dan was up for some cheesesteaks. When Dan and I get together, we usually wind up eating cheesesteaks near a brewery.
Lenny's Italian Deli and Luckily Conshohocken Brewing Company
I checked out all my go-to lists and found a couple of places in Conshohocken. Luckily Conshohocken Brewing Company is open early on a Tuesday, so we headed out towards Conshohocken Pa.
We were actually heading to another place that looked to have been a victim of COVID-19 when we stumbled upon a new spot, Lenny's Italian Deli.
Lenny's looks to be new and take-out only. Everything inside looks shiny and clean, with a few picnic tables set up outside.
When fresh-baked cookies caught my eyes, I had a good feeling about Lenny's. I just had to order two packs of white chocolate and macadamia nut cookies.
I saw they had the typical cheesesteaks, pizza steak, pepperoni steak, and chicken cheesesteaks on the menu.
I looked further down the menu and saw their famous specialties sandwiches, which included a pork Italiano and chicken, chopped or cutlet, Italiano.
So, we wound up ordered the Cheesesteak Italiano's, with broccoli rabe and sharp provolone cheese, and took them to Conshohocken Brewing Co's Conshohocken, conveniently located down a bike path.
The Cheesesteak Italiano
The Cheesesteak Italiano was served on a Conshohocken Bakery roll, with a fair amount of meat that may have been a touch too dry.
The broccoli rabe was good, though, with the right amount of sharp provolone cheese, and a pretty good melt.
Where the meat, broccoli rabe, and cheese were melted together very well, this was a great cheesesteak, and that was 80% of the cheesesteak.
Lenny's Italian Deli turned out to be the perfect spot to grab a Cheesesteak before head down to Conshohocken Brewing Company, in Conshohocken, PA.
