You’d like to find the guy who did it, rip his still beating heart out of his chest and hold it in front of his face so he can see how black it is before he dies.

Since moving to California, I still haven’t even thought about venturing out to try to find a “philly cheesesteak”, because I know how much of a bitch I am about the “rightness” of how a real cheesesteak is supposed to be. One of the Meester’s coworkers was telling us about a place that he said seemed authentic, but I’m skeptical. I know I’ll walk in there and quiz them about their rolls, and everything else. Fuck that if I’m going to have a knockoff. One of the other coworkers just brought back a cheesesteak from this so called place. I had to see the roll, and right off the bat it’s not an Amoroso, so this place in my mind is OUT. Then he proceeded to do something to this steak that I swear to dog…. I’m still all wobbly and weak just thinking about it. I don’t know if I can go on….


That’s like, the most ultimate form of sacrelige. I think I’m going to curl up in the fetal position and cry now.

Bleck. That made me gag!

Good luck on your search.

Mustard? That’s….evil.

You think that is gross? In Holland we put mayonaise on our french fries…that’s right, no ketchup, but mayonaise. It is a real grease fest.

I was desperate enough to get one from Subway the other night. *sobs* It’s been that long…

If I were to head to Philly for a day trip, where would I go to get the best cheesesteak. Think proximity to the airport and ease of finding it. Also.. how do you order it. Is there a certain lingo?

The terrorists have already won. :(

I’m with Tiffanie. The best cheesesteak within easy reach of the airport is…?

Mustard?? NO NO NO NO NO!! And I am a true lover of mustard – but it does.not.belong.on.a.cheesesteak! Ham & swiss? I’m all over it. Not a cheesesteak! Just ew.

clearly you have not tried to get a cheesesteak in virginia. not only do they not use Amoroso rolls here, but they put mayo, lettuce and tomatoes on unless you tell them not to. don’t get me started on the cheese…

and people look at me funny when i throw a fit.

buddha February 11, 2005 at 8:39 am

mustard…on a cheesteak?

that’s not right at all. Might as well put mayo on it as well. Heck. while your at it put swiss on it.
