BEST CHEESESTEAK Sandwich in Philadelphia! Philly Cheesesteak Tour

  • Published on Aug 7, 2018
  • So glad that I got to do a Cheesesteak Tour when I visited Philadelphia this time because when you are in Philly, you got to eat some good Philly Cheesesteak!!
    Cheesesteak sandwiches have always been one of my favorite kind of sandwiches, that's why I had to make it my mission to see what the best Cheesesteak Sandwich that Philly has to offer!
    Not only did I get to taste the cheesiest Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich that was oozing out with cheese, but I also got to try one of the biggest Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches too! This Cheesesteak sandwich is filled with an insanely amount of toppings, full of juicy seasoned meat, fried onions, peppers and most of all, and it has so much cheese!
    Mmm, thank you, Philadelphia for your fantastic Cheesesteak Sandwiches, I will be back for more of that cheesy sandwich!

      Your meat sucking vacuum power . Amazing. The definition of you. NOT ONE STEP BACKWARDS. GET THEM. ALL OF THEM .
      That was you. You go out there and do it all. I am amazed by you, jealous and envious if you.
      You are my spirit animal.... which eats all the food that exists in the universe, and know , of course, what is good. I love ya man. Keep it up. If Anthony Bourdain could have a person carry his mantle, it would be you. And we would all be honored. How you respect and visit all these cultures and their foods.

    American 'cheese' has no right to call itself chees to begin with. It would be out right illegal to do here in EU. American cheese is cancer. Hate it with a passion.

    When I went to Philly we were told by the locals to stay away from Pat's and Geno's. They said that's where all the tourists go and it's always crowded and the sandwiches are overrated. We were told to go to Jim's on South Street so that's where we went and we loved it. Highly recommend Jim's

    Yes a classic Philly Cheesesteak has cheese whiz on it. But a great Cheesesteak has the cheese on top, and it's provolone with caramelized onions and mushrooms on a toasted roll. Gotta be toasted or it gets soggy.

    It's strange but I don't see the appeal in the bread, cheese and meat combo on its own.. It needs some vegetables to be tasty ...hah. I'm not from USA and we don't really have this kind of food so maybe that's why.
