Welcome to cheesesteak wars, a blog devoted to pitting the cheesesteak against various other foods in a battle for ultimate taste supremacy.
Please subscribe to the blog and comment on the various food battle that will be raging.
The battle of the foods rages on with the cheesesteak versus an Italian sub. New Jersey's best Philly Style Cheesesteak posesses all the qualities of a classic Philly style cheesesteak including the famous cheese wiz. Italian subs are a dime a dozen, but only a few places truly know how to make a classic Italian sub. One of the best in New Jersey is Fiore's Deli in Hoboken. The key to a good Italian is the bread, as well as the quality of meat. Thinly cut, imported ingredients are essential.
Italian subs are great for a tailgate or any lunch really as they can be made fairly quickly and not overly messy. A cheesesteak on the other hand takes a little while to cook, and can be fairly messy depending on what sorts of toppings you add on. Personally, when I am craving some grease, a cheesesteak is the way to go, but if I'm going to pregame or go out to lunch, Italian sub is my choice. Ok, so if you had one meal left and had to choose, what would it be??
Cheesesteak and Chinese food. Two sodium-filled delights that our taste buds cannot do without. In our first post we described the qualities of a good cheesesteak. The quality meat, toppings and selection of cheeses. There are many variations of a good cheesesteak like whether or not to use actual steak, or chopped meat, and which toppings to add. Chinese food has thousands of different dishes and can be prepared differently depending on what region the coom is from. The quality of chinese food can range from msg-filled greasy street meat, to high-end cuisine. One of my favorite restaurants is the Golden Temple in Brookline: http://www.healthyfreshfood.com/. I never feel awful after eating there and they don't over-due the salt. Conversely, my favorite take-out Chinese is Dragon Star in Brookline, Massachusetts and West Garden in West Roxbury, Massachusetts.
So there you have it. Do you prefer the mouth watering taste of a philly style cheesesteak, or a some good ole' Chinese?
