Philly. Cheesesteak. Thickburger


Welcome to the Doublemeat Palace.

Great, a food porn thread! I raise you one DiFara’s pizza, brooklyn NY. AKA the real deal.

Americans. Obese. The Reason.

Now I’m starvin’!

That thing does not look appetizing.

actually it kind of does look good- in a pot/munchies sort of way…

This is pretty good too:

I wish restaurants would stop putting the words “Philly” and “cheesesteak” in menu items when they clearly don’t belong.

You have no idea how much this irks me.

I really did have that for lunch, and it really was delicious. In fact I have about two hours to decide if I want another one, and I’m leaning towards yes.

I demand that you fax me the sandwich immediately.

It’s not just that they put “philly” and “cheesesteak” into the sandwich name… YOU DON’T PUT PEPPERS ON THE STANDARD PHILLY CHEESESTEAK!

Fer fuck’s sake!

This is how you make a Philly Cheesesteak.

Note the OPTIONAL section.

Amen, brother! In my opinion, the onions are optional, too, though.

The onions are not optional for a true Philly Steak. Although both Geno’s and Pat’s are pretty much interchangeable.

Any philly cheesesteak sammich that does leave the requisite amount of cheese drippage on your plate/wrapper/fingers is not a true philly cheesesteak sammich. Although that first pic does indeed look yummy, I’m afraid I couldn’t call it a real philly cheesesteak sammich. So sorry. =(

A true Philly is made with Cheeze Wiz, too. Which is not to say that I don’t appreciate a nice Philly with provalone, but as long as we’re being traditional here…

Actually, during the last Presidential election, Kerry got shit for ordering his Philly Cheesesteak with provolone (HAWHAW WINDSURFING VAGUELY FRENCH-LOOKING ELITIST). In response to this, there was a comment from one of the two big guys in which he said that provolone is the standard cheese, and cheese whiz is for n00^H^H^H tourists.

That may be true. I didn’t learn about the joy that is a good cheesesteak until I was in undergrad in Philly, so I guess that makes me a tourist of sorts. Nevertheless, I still consider whiz the “one true way” simply because I’ve only been able to order one that way in Philadelphia, whereas I can get a crappy “Philly Cheesesteak” with provolone just about anywhere.

I don’t remember ever having onions with mine, but it’s been a long time since I’ve had one from the proper region. There’s a place near where I am now that does reasonable facsimiles, but sadly the real deal is a distant memory.
