Or maybe my sample size is too small, dunno.
I remembered that I hadn't even tried a cheesesteak yet despite having been here for a week as of yesterdayish. Not feeling like biking all the way down to Pat's/Geno's, I got one from one of the little food trucks ("Frita's") just to calibrate what an average, non-famous-location cheesesteak in philadelphia tastes like. Verdict: quite good! Better than what I remember Sam's cheesesteak tasting like. The steak was juicy and flaky and properly greasy for my sense of deliciousness, and the cheese (though not whiz as I hear is canonical) did complement the flavor nicely. I could almost hear it crying out for the taste of fried onions, which I declined to have added, so maybe I will try it with them next time.
Okay that's the end of me comparing the minutiae of the two P-towns in pennsylvania that I have ever lived in! for now!
