A Little Bit of Philly in Virginia Gardens

A Little Bit of Philly - Virginia Gardens, Florida

My dad worked for WISE Potato Chips when I was growing up and his route included Virginia Gardens. I worked every summer with him and I’m very familiar with the area. A Little Bit of Philly is in the same strip mall as the Bakery I used to have my Croqueta Preparadas for breakfast during summers in the eighties.

I showed up at 10:55 just a few minutes before opening just so that I could be the first customer. Unfortunately, they didn’t open up til 11:07. By that point, I was back sitting in my car practically eating the box my spearmint gum came in.

I like to be prepared when I check out a new place but I couldn’t find a menu anywhere for A Little Bit of Philly. I’m not into cold ordering which is why I posted the menu below.

They’ve got a lunch deal for 2 slices and a can of soda. I gladly take them up on that offer. I also order what I originally came in for, a Philly Cheese Steak. And since I’m here already, what the hell, let’s throw in a Meatball Sub to wash everything down.

This Philly Cheese Steak was exactly what I was hoping for. I was surprised to see Mushrooms in it at first but it was great. A Little Bit of Philly uses Amoroso Rolls for the bread. The Provolone Cheese (slices) are on the bottom of the Sub and I got just enough of it with every bite. It smelled every bit as good as it looked too.

The Cheese Slices were good and better than 100% of those chains out there. I regret not adding Pepperoni to them and I regret even more not ordering a Sicilian Pizza. I’ve heard that’s the way to go.

I took one bite out of the Meatball Sub and was down for the count. I was beyond stuffed. It’s a a homemade Meatball in case you were wondering and definitely worth a try. I ended up having it later that night while watching American Ninja Warrior aka exercise night.

For next time, I see Strombolis & Calzones in my future.
