Are you tired of all the cheesesteak photos yet? I hope not cause I saved the best for last. Is this an amazing beautiful sight or what???
I was aimlessly driving around town after my late night visit to Jim's Steaks and found myself near familiar street names during when I visited Pat's and Geno's the night before.
Since I bought a T-shirt at Jim's I thought I wouldn't mind having one from Pat's too.
Well thanks to the extremely efficient ordering system that is comparable to a high level programming language here, I discovered that it's actually possible to accidentally order a cheesesteak. The cashier mumbled something, and I mistakenly said yes, haha. ;)
I ended up with a Whiz Wit and while I typically wouldn't ever complain about that, it was past 1AM and I wasn't exactly that hungry. Well at least I'd be having a tasty breakfast the morning..
But it did give me a chance to try the Whiz version at Pat's and also those hot peppers that I missed out on the first visit. I actually loved those little dark dry ones that seemed further heated in oil. It wasn't too hot if you avoided the seeds and was lightly sweet and very nutty in flavor.
Yup, I liked the seasoned beef here that I can taste even through all that whiz. (Still prefer provolone though.) The onions weren't as caramelized as the night before but ample and sufficient. Cold the next morning, like a good slice of pizza no problem. And that bread is amazing to stay so pliable like that!
Well this concludes my posts in Philly. Hope you enjoyed it. I also got to visit the "Rocky Steps" and statue at the Philadelphia Museum of Art after my roast pork sandwich in Reading Terminal Market the last day. Yes, I ran up the steps (embarrassing..). I think the statue used to be at the top of the steps but now relocated to a new location below.
Reminds me I'm going to have to work off all these calories in the next month. But while running I might be singing to myself instead, "Rib-Eye of the Tiger....." haha! ;)
Man this music video is so bad that it's good. Love the spared no expense black trash bag backdrop with fan.
Hope to visit you again Philadelphia!
