Elbert’s Sandwich Shop

The once humble kiosk serving delicious cheesesteak sandwiches at the food court is now a full-fledged restaurant at Power Plant Mall. Elbert’s Sandwich Shop offers comfort food using the best fresh ingredients. Although they’re known for their famous cheesesteak, we got to try their other offerings that were just as scrumptious and generous with flavor, garnish and sidings. The Cubano sandwich packed with pork, pickles and cheese is their own take on the popular Cuban favorite; then we had the burger (that went through several testing stages according to Chef Adrian Cuenca) that was so well-seasoned and cooked a perfect medium rare, the recommended way to fry a pattie. We also took on their sidings: fries and fat onion rings that were robust on the inside with just the right amount of batter. If specialty sandwiches are your thing, this is the place to go and experience comfort food with a homemade feel sans the cooking mess.

Elbert’s Sandwich Shop is at the R2 Level.
