No, you didn’t read the headline wrong. Yes, this restaurant does serve philly cheesesteaks egg rolls. Del Frisco’s Grille, recently held a soft opening in Irvine, Calif. this week. Located in the Irvine Spectrum (Orange County’s Tweenage Mecca), the new eatery is an extension of the Texas-based Del Frisco’s Restaurant Group.
The place doesn’t quite have that fine-dining feel. In fact, Del Frisco’s teeters on the edge of casual and dressy where one could eat comfortably in either a suit or shorts. Not sure what to make of it yet, but hey at least the food’s good. Also, there’s booze.
Though at the end of the day, do you really want to read some jerk’s opinion, or look at yummy photographs. Thought so.
Cheesesteak Egg Rolls
Made with beef and cheese, it has the consistency of a philly cheesesteak with the crunch of an egg roll. The egg rolls are served with a sweet & spicy chili sauce and honey mustard. Not mad about this at all. In fact, we’re surprised not many places have tried this union before. Solid combo. $13
Tuna tartare served with avocado and a spicy citrus mayo sauce. The tacos are served with crispy fried wonton taco shells. A pretty light entry to the appetizer menu compared to the cheesesteak egg rolls. Maybe that’s why there’s four. $17.50
The crabcake benedict, poached eggs, toasted Focaccia, with a crab cake patty that’s pretty generous on the crab. Served with a cajun lobster sauce and garnished with a pair of asparagus spears. Savory and sweet in all the right places, it’s definitely a spin on the popular brunch item we’ve never seen before. Plus that yolk, though. Brunch item only. $17
Prime New York Strip
A 16-oz New York strip that seasoned with a dope rub and grilled gingerly. I won’t say much more, but this photo will speak for itself. It’s served with potatoes or something, I forget just looking at this beast. $43
The Adult Milkshake
What makes an adult milkshake, adult? No, it’s not the cherries made to look like bewbs. It’s the Nocello Walnut Liqueur, Creme de Cacao Chocolate Liqueur and vanilla ice cream. Yum. N/A
