The ones from Philly always had a negative connotation as they were bland unseasoned strips of beef with disgusting nuclear colored cheese whiz and some diced grilled onions. The one thing that a lot of people liked about Phillly Cheesesteaks was the bread as they were always made from a famous bakery called Amoroso's, but to me the bread was always a bit soft and chewy. Our cheesesteaks were superior in every way; only melted provolone cheese, lettuce, tomato, grilled or raw onions and spicy cherry peppers. Plus the bread was from one of two famous bakeries in Atlantic City, Formica's or Randos, sort of crispy and firm on the outside, but slightly chewy on the inside, similar to a French baguette but thicker. The most famous sub shop that was known for them is the White House Sub shop, they were even featured on an episode of the Cosby Show once.


Typical disgusting Philly cheesesteak:

This is a White House cheesesteak:

Lettuce and tomatos on cheesesteaks ruins it. It masks the taste. Lettuce is too watery, and the tomato is overpowering.

I still fondly remember purchasing Italian subs at The White House and eating them on the beach in Ventnor. Best subs I have ever had.

I didn't know people were getting graded on spelling and punctuation.
