The Great Philly Cheese Steak Tatse Test

Last month we were looking for something to do during the week. We wanted a one-day event and did not want to spend big bucks. We talked about it for a while and then remembered something we had seen on TV. That was what we needed to do while we are still here in Maryland.

We often watch the Travel Channel and the Food Network. Both of these have run programs regarding the continuing competitive battle over who has the best cheese steak in Philadelphia. Two cheese steak provisioners in South Philly, Pat's King of Steaks and Geno's Steaks, have been battling out for the title of "best cheeses steak" for many years. We decided to take the taste test ourselves.

It was an overcast day and quite chilly, but the excitement of actually doing this taste test made the 2 hour trip well worth it. Guinness loved the city and the excitement on the streets, although, he did not participate in the taste test. No human food in his diet.

The video following is a record of the test:
