CAMDEN (KYW Newsradio) — A small restaurant in Camden is creating a big buzz thanks to an item on its menu going viral.

For the last three years, Harvinskins Seafood Market & Cafe in Camden has been serving up a unique kind of cheesesteak.

"Wild caught salmon, broccoli, sauteed onions, shrimp and we have a special sauce," said co-owner Robert Muse.

A few weeks ago, a video blogger documented Muse making one of the seafood cheesesteaks in a post that has now gone viral.

"We have basically tripled our business, every since he came in," Muse said.

Muse says their days have gotten a lot busier to keep up with the demand.

"We're doing at least 200 something sandwiches a day, easy," he said. 

Muse says there are some people questioning the legitimacy of this cheesesteak, but he says just one bite makes the believers.

"I heard a couple people say, 'well how do you call it a cheesesteak?' And I go,' because, you know, it's the same format, basically, but it's just salmon chopped up same way you would chop a regular cheesesteak up,'" he said. 

Nina Wright says she's never had anything quite like this seafood cheesesteak, and she plans on bringing one back to Florida with her.

"I leave to go back home on Saturday, so I'm going to see if he could pass one to-go for me so my husband can experience what I just experienced," she said.
