Best Cheese Steak, August 2008
The allure of a good cheese steak is equal to the greasy appeal of a late-night taco truck binge. But tracking down a decent cheese steak sandwich in L.A. is tougher than cruising around in search of an RV blaring Tejano music. That’s why we love Philly’s Best, a chain with two dozen stores throughout Southern California that imports ingredients from Philadelphia. Thinly sliced steak is stuffed still sizzling into flaky Amoroso rolls, considered the only cheese steak-worthy bread. Turophiles can choose between American, provolone, or a hefty ladling of Cheez Whiz. Extras include fried onions, peppers, mushrooms, and pizza sauce.
