Recently Ahoy NY decided to take a trip to Philly. During our visit sure we stopped by the museums and learned about the history of America, but we also made it a point to try a couple of yummy cheesesteaks!!
During our two day visit we tried two cheesesteaks. On our first day we stopped at the famous Pat’s King of Steaks, which by the way is the ORIGINAL Philly Cheesesteak. Be prepared when you go to know HOW to order! You let them know with or withOUT onions and select the cheese. The Philly classic of course is with Cheez Wiz and onions. Here is the picture of a cheesesteak from Pat’s — the signature Philly Cheesesteak.
On our second day we visited the Reading Terminal Market, the Reading Terminal Market is located in the Center City of Philadelphia. The market is a historic farmers market that has a selection of Amish specialties, baked goods, meats, produce, ethnic foods, and eclectic restaurants. It is a great place to go with a few friends and have a collaborative tasting of local foods (i.e. cheesesteaks, soft pretzels) as well as ethnic foods from all over the world. During our visit we tried a cheesesteak from Carmen’s Famous Italian Hoagies and Cheesesteaks. At Carmen’s you can watch as they make the cheesesteaks in front of your eyes– and this is exactly what we did… have a look!
We hope that you enjoyed our post on our visit to Philly… make sure to visit these great places on your next visit!
