Oscar Vazquez may not be from Philadelphia, but he’s fully committed to the city’s culinary cause at Downtown Philly Cheese Steaks. He opened a second branch across from Westfield Topanga mall in October, building on the success of the Santa Clarita original, which he purchased in 2015. The concept now shares a strip mall with West Valley Dental, Hydro-Spa Outlet and C&C Pet Mart, to name just three neighbors. Just like in Santa Clarita, they showcase sandwiches, pizza and burgers.
The space contains grey and reclaimed wood walls, a model bike, speckled counter fronting an open kitchen, and two flat-screen TVs. An LED menu touts steak sandwiches, whole pizzas (no slices), char-burgers, hoagies and salads.
Cheese steaks come with choice of American, mozzarella or provolone cheeses, unless you prefer Cheez Whiz—Philly’s favorite processed cheese product. Make it a hoagie with lettuce and tomato, a pizza steak with pizza sauce and mozzarella, add mushroom, or order a “downtown special” with bacon. All sandwiches come with a “special cut” of beef from Philly and grilled onions and/or peppers. Amoroso hearth-baked rolls are shipped from Philly in one size: 10 inches.
