Yellow Submarines Cheesesteaks: Inspired by Philly, Made in Singapore!
Who can resist a romantic story – a cheesy one, even? Homegrown fast food restaurant Yellow Submarines Cheesesteaks was founded by Titin and Andy, an intrepid couple whose adventures in the US of A sparked off a delicious idea – to bring Philadelphia’s classic Cheesesteak to Singapore.
Once they touched down in Singapore, Titin and Andy immediately worked on recreating the cheesy, delightful flavours that Philly’s cheesesteaks are well-known for. It took 10 months of research and hard work to perfect their formula – a process which the couple likened to ‘having a baby’.
And boy, did all that effort pay off! We’re about to find out what makes Yellow Submarines and their signature sandwich so well-loved by young and old alike!
First Impressions of Yellow Submarines Cheesesteaks
Nestled in the bustling town centre of Toa Payoh, it’s hard to miss a sign as bright and cheery as Yellow Submarines. The exterior boasts a nice alfresco dining area, perfect for chilling out with your friends, while the interior features bright pops of colour, with a prominent submarine-shaped menu board.
More seating is available on the air-conditioned second floor, with a large submarine-shaped table as the centrepiece – whimsical and adorable, great for families with kids!
The Classic by Yellow Submarines Cheesesteaks
Fall in love with the sandwich that started it all – the Yellow Submarines Classic Cheesesteak! Though inspired by the Philadelphian original, Titin and Andy crafted it to suit the local palate.
Each Classic is chock full of premium-quality sirloin beef, tender and springy in all the right places, bursting with rich flavours in every bite. The caramelised onions complemented the premium sirloin perfectly, bringing out the heartiness and textures of the cheesesteak.
Of course, no cheesesteak is complete without cheese! In the early stages, Titin and Andy went through at least 50 different types of cheeses before they decided on not just one, but a BLEND of multiple cheeses, which proved to be the winning strategy! The smooth, savoury cheese blend is just the right partner for the grilled premium sirloin.
Wrapping it all up is the perfectly-toasted bread roll – crisp and golden on the outside, soft and fluffy on the inside. Eating a cheesesteak is always going to be a messy endeavour, but the bread roll soaks up all the cheese and steak juices quite nicely, ensuring that every last morsel makes it into your belly.
Finish off your cheesesteak meal with another menu favourite – the Torpedo Fries! This ain’t no simple fried potato in a paper bag – these thick-cut french fries are served in a cup, with generous dollops (yes, dollops, not mere drizzles!) of savoury, gooey, and yummy nacho cheese!
Get the Yellow Submarines Classic for S$7.90, or get a full meal, complete with a drink and Torpedo Fries, for S$10.90!
The New Kid on the Block: Hokkaido Cheese Toast!
If the Classic Cheesesteak and Torpedo Fries have transported you to Cheese Paradise, then Yellow Submarines’ new addition will throw you an epic Cheese Party there!
The Hokkaido Cheese Toast was introduced just weeks before this post was written, but it’s quickly becoming a hot favourite on Yellow Submarines’ menu, and it’s not hard to see why. We’re blown away by just how much cheese is packed between two slices of thick toast! Pull the grilled confection apart, and be greeted by strings of pulled cheese that just. Never. Ends!
Flavour-wise, the Hokkaido Cheese Toast owns that happy middle ground between savoury and sweet. Bite into the springy, chewy cheese strings, then enjoy the light sweetness of the cream cheese that settles between the toast slices.
Get the epic Cheese Party started with the Hokkaido Cheese Toast for just S$3.
Yellow Submarines Cheesesteaks: Cheesy Fun for All!
The journey may have begun with the Cheesesteak, but it certainly does not end there! Through the years, Titin and Andy have drawn inspiration from many places, continually developing the menu to include a variety of submarine sandwiches, cheese-baked items, and delightful desserts.
