Why Not?: The Duck Cheesesteak

In a few of my earlier posts, I mentioned grabbing something to eat while on the way to visit my father. I drive a little less than an hour to see him each week, and while I don’t always mix a meal into the outing, it’s become fairly common. I need to eat a coupleContinue reading “Why Not?: The Duck Cheesesteak”

Elite Cheesesteaks Made on Four Wheels

I added a note to the bottom of my last post to alert you that I’d be checking out a new sandwich shop that serves a highly touted cheesesteak Tuesday.

In this context, ‘sturdy’ relates primarily to the crust and can mean that it either is at least slightly crispy or has a chewy quality to it that is usuallyContinue reading “Top Five Cheesesteak Rolls”

My Year-Long Cheesesteak Odyssey – and What’s Next

*There is an alphabetical list of links to all of my cheesesteak posts at the bottom of this post. While I’ve always lived in the Philadelphia region, I didn’t start eating cheesesteaks at the rate of a little over one per week until roughly a year ago. It was at that point that circumstances andContinue reading “My Year-Long Cheesesteak Odyssey – and What’s Next”
