Cross Country Is Coming But Cheesesteaks Are Here!

 So the first leg of the Philadelphia Cheesesteak Challenge occurred last evening.  Daughter the Younger was the principle judge as we took a cab to Geno's Steaks at 1200 block of South Ninth St. in Philadelphia.


She ordered a Provolone With, or cheesesteak with provolone and fried onions.  The price was conveniently $10.00 including the tax.  I had the classic Whiz With which was dripping with orange goodness!

Daughter the Younger's evaluation:

  • Deliciousness:     5/5   The sandwiches were extraordinarily good!
  • Presentation:    5/5  The glitz and glamour of South Philly at its best.
  • Environment:    4/5  The smells of the Italian Market fish stalls was everywhere on this 95 degree day!
  • Convenience:    5/5  Cash only, English "encouraged", and no coins needed!
  • Ingredients:    5/5   the roll was the best she has ever had!  The meat, cheese, onions were top notch A+
 And we had an order of cheese fries for the 1 1/2 mile walk back to Chinatown.  A great snack on the go with just the right amount of cheese whiz to crunchy fry ratio.

Next up on the evaluation is Jim's Steaks of South Street and back to 1200 S. 9th Street for a Pat's Steak.  That's following tonight's Kung Pao Extravaganza at the origin of the craze, Joy Tsin Lao.  Stay tuned!
 Oh yeah, here's the 2016 XC Schedule:  Anyone able to co-pilot a drone at any of the Home events?
