Whiz Wit or Witout

One of the original food marathoners got married in Philadelphia. This presented an opportunity to eat a path through the city, and also add on a trip to New York for more food marathoning.
Upon arrival at the hotel we were greeted with a bag full of Philly’s most notable sweets: Tasty Kakes, Orange Soda
Philly cheese steaks are renowned for their simplicity and junkfoody goodness. Topped with Cheese Whiz, these sandwiches are most famously sold at Pat’s and Geno’s. These first two pics courtesy of Carrie: Located on the same South Philly street, it’s the equivalent of having two Pinks within fifty feet of each other on La Brea.To keep things moving quickly, these sandwich stands employ a shorthand form of ordering which you can read about here. Basically a sandwich can be ordered with two words “Whiz wit” (a sandwich with Cheese Whiz and onions), a simple method that should be mandatory at most crowded restaurants.The argument over who has the best cheesesteak will go on much longer than I’ll be going on food marathons, so I’m not even gonna add my opinion because it doesn’t really matter. I didn’t get to Jim’s, the other top spot, but I did make it to Tony Luke’s per a referral from a Philly native.
Philly’s inappropriately named water ice, Sopranos-esque Italian deli and NYC meal mayhem coming soon…
