“Wit” or “Witout” you?: Arby’s Philly Cheesesteak
**Disclaimer: I have never had a true Philly Cheesesteak so my opinion is completely based on what I think tastes plain good.
If I were to go to Philadelphia where there is Gino’s, Pat’s and Tony Luke’s, I would go for whichever one has the thinnest most tender meat. I would order “wit” (onions) with NO green peppers and with provolone and or mozz NO velveeta crap.
On a desperate ride home from my late night kitchen gig, I stopped at the Arby’s on Lake St. Ya know, the “classier” one? I drove through I got that cheesesteak because I wasn’t in the mood for a regular old thing or a meat mountain. Plus, I wanted to see how this tasted.
Let’s see. The philly came in a neat box. The sandwich was in a sort of soft french roll/baguette. There was not that much cheese inside but there was a lot of green peppers that looked seasoned. Not a bad look Arby’s. I think the the cheese was swiss of which I am not a fan. However, there was a garlic aioli sauce that gave the sandwich some goo flavor.
The taste of the sandwich was pretty good. Flavorful of salt, pepper, and a little garlic. Although, the angus meat was tough for my liking. I really do not like tough chewy meat in general especially when it comes to beef. But, I didn’t the flavor of the sandwich with the onions was pretty decent.
The round up:
Would I buy this again? Um naaah
Did I finish this? yes but left a little bread
Would I recommend it? no
