Confession: I do not remember the last time I ate a cheesesteak. Even if I did, it did not leave an impression on me. Friends, that has just changed. Last week I took a trip to Laos and had a cheesesteak at Joma. It was being promoted in the cafés and on big signs. It looked fine, but you cannot tell that much by just looking at the picture. You can only judge the quality of it when you take that first bite. So that is what I did. I needed to know what the big deal was about the cheesesteak.
My first thought when the staff served it to my table was that it is fairly big for a dish in Southeast Asia! The baguette is toasted and filled with slow-roasted beef, sautéed peppers and onions, mayo, and gobs of melted cheese. I took a bite from it, not expecting much, but it. was. awesome. There is so much beef in the sandwich that it will fill your mouth in every bite.
Side note about this meat. If you've been around Southeast Asia very long, you know that most people just do not eat beef here. It is usually tough, chewy, and grisly. But not at Joma. The team at Joma sources the perfect cut of beef and then their trained production staff slow roast it to tender, juicy perfection. The copious amounts of beef that you once missed from home can now be a distant memory as you tickle your tastebuds with the new Joma cheesesteak.
Joma guarantees the same standard every time you order. The staff know the exact amount of meat, veggies, and cheese to put on your sandwich. That way you can always be satisfied and know exactly what you are getting yourself into. Believe me, it's worth every beef-filled bite!
