How about a Philly Cheese Steak?
« on: March 09, 2017, 12:47:52 PM »

Today, there's a food market at the Guildhall in the City.  After walking past these guys



I found this guy



And bought a sandwich.  Sorry, I'm just a North Carolina boy and know nothing about Philly Cheese Steak, but the dude was nice and the sandwich tasted good. 

Next, I must bring an offering to the French wife:


Before going back to the office and eating this

I swear it tasted like cheez whizz!  They had a sign that talked about how good cheez whizz is, but the guy told me they make their own cheez sauce from Red Leicester.

I didn't ask.  He was wearing some kind of baseball looking shirt and that was good enough for me.

He was certainly American and had some kind of Northern accent.  Nice guy otherwise.

Yes - I was looking for "The Whiz" on that and could tell it wasn't quite authentic without the orange cheesy goodness. I'm glad I went to Philly before I found out I had celiac because Pat's is so good!

But this does look quite tasty - my husband would probably love it.

Not a fan of the whiz, but the Sammy above looks good!

I doubt it.  I don't even like Springsteen cause he's always singing about somewhere up North.

A Sammy is a sandwich.  US equivalent of sarnie.   ;D
