BEST CHEESESTEAK Sandwich in Philadelphia! Philly Cheesesteak Tour


  • Published on: 2018-08-07
  • [Music] [Music] [Music] hey guys it's Mike Chen I've been travelling through a lot of different places around the world this past year and what I really wanted to do this year is go to more of the cities right here in the US because we got a lot of great food right here and of course I've done a lot of videos in New York so I figure I go to the next closest big city and that's why I'm here today in Philadelphia and when you are in Philly you've got to eat some cheese steak of course there are just a ton of great cheesesteak places in Philadelphia so on this trip we're really gonna go take a cheesesteak tour of Philly and I want to go to places I've never been before try it out and let you guys know what I think well actually correction we are gonna go to a lot of places I haven't been before today except for this place I was here at John's roast pork about eight to ten years ago I tried their sandwich it was absolutely you loved that first bite so I don't know why it took me so long to come back but my first stop in Philly it's got to be here now this place has excellent cheesesteak but they're really known for their roast pork sandwich which is just oh I can't you got to just try and they're open an I am this is the perfect breakfast let's do this I would love to have a cheese steak with a sharp provolone and a port with broccoli rabe gotcha gotcha okay perfect so if you want cheesesteak come to the first part of the counter and then you come here and order your roast pork sandwich which you must do when you're here [Music] so excited thank you let's go I think this cheese steak day is one of my most anticipated most excited food days ever I'm gonna start with a cheese steak first because you're gonna save the best for last as soon as I unwrap this I could smell the cheese the bread the beef this is almost too much for me it's like overwhelming my senses a bit and look at this so much be very loaded she's beautiful a street like that she's it's saucony and their nose right now look how juicy the sandwiches how'd I choose as being soaked into the bread right now [Music] that's one of the BPH easiest most licious bite of sandwich I've had in a long long time excuse me that's not BP I don't know what ish yeah oh yeah that she's a sharp that's a little peppery we mean the onions do lightly crunchy and fragrant look at the bread I mean this is like a hoagie right and I know I squeezed a little bit but look how thin has become look at this bread to meet racial tell me you don't want to buy to this my first Philly cheesesteak is such a long time this thing is giving me like food goose bumps and by the way this is the most peppery she steak I've ever had to filet it's almost nothing like tongue a little bit however I think I'm ready this delicious cheese steak has opened my palate enough where I think I'm worthy enough for the roast pork sandwich I feel like there should be a spot of sunlight shining on this sandwich right now and and hallelujah singing somewhere by angels oh look at this spinach this thinly sliced pork and all that gravy is soaked into the bun again sharp provolone cheese bread and meats racial spectacular there's so much pork here this would be like Angry Birds worst nightmare we go [Music] I've been thinking and dreaming of this encounter for him like I said 10 years now I thought of every possible way it could go I could fight it a might not be in as good as I thought or they changed the recipe a little bit and taste different I wouldn't get the same feeling I got the first time it's all back oh that feelings back oh my gosh the feelings the pork is so succulent the sharp provolone perfect contrast to that nice fatty porky flavor this finish to the pork is like Robin to Batman the perfect perfect complement and again how much pork is in here the bread is soaked up that heathering porky healing elixir which turns it into like like almost a moist chaser that that Ross loved so much I love how the texture and flavor just hits you and waves first when you bite into the bread they good that slightly tougher outer layer and then it just tore gentleness inside as you chewed the port hits you you kind of like it out in a porky days then this spinach comes and offers that almost like cream of spinach texture a ridiculous complementary flavor that that kind of wakes you up on the porky trim a little bit but at the same time making that dream is slightly better then you get that sharp peppery taste of the provolone cheese that's when you wake up ever so gently and wish you could have that same dream over and over again and you can't by taking another bites I know this is not a cheese steak but Philly I feel like it's more than ajust a shoe stink town it's a sandwich town and this is its mayor right here and I'm sure like I'll discover other great sandwiches today and I'm so excited for that but oh my god is so wonderful to visit a passion love I knew a little private time with this thing and then we'll head on to location number two this next place I heard a lot of good things about from my local friend Jim steaks so it looks like a little old-fashioned diner you got tables you get outside on Oh see it's been here a long time yeah I love a cheesecake cheese steak with waves with onions yeah hooked me up man please thank you so much now those delicious onion steak as mr. Jim I heard great things thank you best in the country all right here that number one that's mr. Jim right there oh my your is a choo-choo my friend [Music] oh this is almost hurting me how good this looks then they got mountain I don't like a close to sandwich oh I just ate a lot already but this it's just come on listen listen let's get a closer look at this this might be the most overly stuffed cheese steak I think I've ever had in a couple of observations right away it's much juicier than John's look at this you guys want to see a beefy waterfall right here one thing I do love about this place is I cannot believe they serve roasted chili peppers look at this thing looks like a crazy tentacle just crazy the thing is a chili with little chili stuck to it it's like a chili magnet oh wow this is the most tender beef I've ever had in cheesesteak not only is the beef superbly tender it is just ridiculously cheesy because we get the whiz cheese I mean that she's really seeps to every single nook and cranny and gets on top of that beef and clings to it until you take that sultry fight hang on this is look at this gonna be the best part that's the moneymaker right here you see where all the excess cheese is just coming gathering paint around the bottom right there that's where they all go to party but now that party is right in here I mean they give you a ton of exercise pickle I think is a must because that's gonna cut down a lot of that cheese it is gonna enable me to eat more cheesecake today which is really important but this I need to fight a vicious on it's all Wow shashi a lot of oil whoo Thursday heat wow you know has a lot of heat it's almost like my chili oil except for using a whole chili pepper then they fried this and oh man it is intense whoo about is now I think delicious moist tender delicate cheesy beefy it just doesn't even begin to do justice for this cheese steak I'm gonna add in some pepper oh by the way that bite with a pickle marvelous marvelous let's just do like a one all-encompassing bite right here that's everything cheesesteak lover could want in that bite I mean I never lived in Philly I never had a cheesesteak torque like I'm doing today before but so far grated cheese steak I've ever had all that beef it's just magical that's magical beef oh and the onions in hmm so onions actually really really tender and this sweet this you gotta just add some heat add some pickles it's gonna make this already beautiful sandwich even more fabulous koha this is good also the rolls want to say really but it's so gentle and soft it kind of almost blends in with the tenderness of the beef itself perfect cheese steak and that she's Wiz is so incredibly creamy is like a creamy cheese with tender steak delicate onions on such a soft gentle roll just like the tender mother's case of all cheese dates right here one thing that she's dig does to me I don't usually drink soda but I've been really feeling a cream soda right now with a cheese stick about a cheesesteak little cream soda my day is going so well right now and it's only getting better I think because after this we're off to location number three [Music] there are this next place I'm going to cleaver steak shades and Bruce could I get a cheesesteak sure thank you so much and cleavers it's not like any of the restaurants I've been to so far today it's actually a sit-down place and they bring your cheese steak to you in the cheesesteaks little unique as well because just like a giant pork the cheese is on the bottom so the whiz is not drenching all over the meat it's right over the bread so it's like a cheesy Betty for the beef again a lot of sauteed onions a you can either get a sesame roll or not of course you gotta get the sesame roll in this thing just like at Jim's stopped with meat like it's like Stilton there oh my gosh oh I didn't notice this so I saw that my cheese steak was was a little you know slanted towards the middle because that's where all the meat and cheese is I got a little puddle got a little cheesy puddle right there that's just all beef juice and shoes and this thing look at this that's some tender cheese dead Wow this I don't even know how to put my cheese steak back in without getting it all wet come to Daddy oh I want to hug you thank you for making me feel so happy - my taste buds are all just rocking and rolling right now this beef it's got more of a chew to it I love the heavy beefy flavor the onions subtly sweet the cheese although is only on the bottom his presence is everywhere this might be the cheesiest cheese steak I have today roll not as tender as Jim's but it's got a nice chewy outer layer and I love the fragrance and the crunch of the little sesame seeds it's perfect especially the onions at the unsung hero here provides such a subtly sweet contrast they get the cheese you get the beef is and then like you're almost like drowning in and all that delicious creamy flavor and then onions just comment and makes everything a little less intense a little more mellow like a little sailboat guiding you through that sea of flavor there's such a solid shushing I came in beginning to stop eating inertia this is a solid 9 out of 10 like solvent Wow everything about this I love its passion its personality its insecurities everything about it I looked at you and I see your inner beauty and all your cheese that spider association like I said my day just keeps getting better and better let's keep on going she Stig number four [Music] my next stop brings me to Germantown where I hear a nice estate is supposed to be pretty darn good [Music] if it tastes as good as it smells I'm gonna be pretty happy Wow look at this just a mountain of hay right here I just kind of want to climb on this skate bounce in it and play ping up the big hill when they ask you what size of us she's taking one you say large they are not kidding around it's the Latham bye all huh okay so I was trying to figure out what size was on top this whole thing is literally sitting on my arm right now and it's it is overflowing by like a good six inches and this is like I said I'm about to just like eat that off the ground because like I don't want to waste any beef Oh [Music] oh yeah better I'm losing people beef down I feel like this cheese steak it's just in your face full of beef and flavor from the onions which are a little crispy a little sweet juicy immensely cheesy there's nothing 4020 about this it's just in your face here's your feed here's your cheese here some peppers and we're gonna shove as much as we can of it into this bread and then they give it to you and you're gonna just basically figure out how to eat this because it is can we have a moment of silence for all the beef that's fallen off my sandwich today I'm about to like cry right now because not a single piece of this should be wasted [Music] everything about this just so pulled so aggressively delicious but beefs got a good shoe to it and the meat that you're using the more you chew the more flavorful it guess wait a minute I'm almost done with half of this I can keep that oh do you know weigh it look big a little intimidating but it's so good you won't realize how easy it all goes now this place is pretty in shape I was really insane that beef and cheese combo mines like the Romeo and Juliet up cheese - right there ah $18 for that monster this might be the best value cheesesteak in Philly if not one of the tastiest so glad I came from all right let me finish this up then we got one more place to go finally last cheesesteak of the day D'Allesandro steaks I really anticipate this place because of all the recommendations of cheesesteaks and Philly most people recommend it need to come here and try their cheesesteak the expectation is high my last cheesesteak of the day and by the way the way they were cooking the cheesesteak in there yeah literally I've just dismounted like a literal hill of beef the beef reminds me of what gems looks like it's basically chopped into pieces look at this beautiful layer of onions on top what do you love about places that really chop the beef up is that you can fit more of that into the bread and more Beebe's always better Oh American cheese on the bottom covering the lower half of the beef that's just all gooey cheese I'll get to that I am absolutely filled up to here with cheesesteak I still can't wait to finish this one what Mesa is so good is the beef it's so amazingly tinder whether cheese is almost like eating a beefy cheesy casserole you're gonna put that filling in any paper but this definitely needs a little acid get that little dip in the hot pepper [Music] hurry up a little bit actually really highlights how awesome this Pete pissed it's probably most similar to what I had today in gym suit the bun is fluffy and soft and cheese is melty the meat is tender onion slightly crispy and sweet only thing is the flavor of the beef itself is missing a bit for me I taste a beef I taste a cheese I don't taste much seasoning on the beat myself but it's winning my heart over just with a hell tender and cheesy this fingers I think when she asked me if I want to solve and pepper on there should I say yeah actually because it is missing a bit of salt and pepper right hang on a second oh let me try this again all right each take number two here I got some salt and pepper this time on my beef and I got some sauce I don't know this will make a difference so they put marinara sauce it looks like on the cheese steak I don't know I just saw a lot of people getting sauced so I thought I better get some sauce through again every single cheese think you get absolutely loaded which I love have you ever come here make sure to ask for salt and pepper it's really really important they also have the fried chili and I got some pickles as well probably one of the most tender steaks I've had today I love the hole in Samba with the thread and the onions and the cheese but again even with the salt and pepper I'm not loving the flavor of the meat it's a bit too Brin for me and that's just my own personal opinion maybe it's because I'm used to really strong flavors but the flavor itself is not really doing it for me well anyway this is my last cheese steak here in Philadelphia I think the best for me it is so hard because all these steaks are pretty darn awesome in Norway but I think if I had to pick a favorite ah I don't know I'm gonna have to say it's gems - steak was tender it was flavorful the cheese was melty delicious the bread was scrumptious and fluffy I think the most value for your dollar cheesesteaks gotta be out maxin I mean you saw that Fame nothing was longer than my arm and it was loaded with cheese and ingredients also I saw if he asked for mushrooms there they literally stuffed a peeve in the bread first which is already full then they put the mushrooms on top with some more beets that's definitely a really fulfilling cheese steak and of course John's I love not as much for their cheese steak but really for that delicious pork sandwich that I'm gonna be thinking about that for a long time it's like a loan this is food lover I'd only good to see like once every ten years but again what a thrilling date thank you for having me for the dumpling you guys are awesome you make some of the best sandwiches in the world and I cannot wait to come back and taste some more of your delicious eats again guys this is just my own personal opinion you don't have to agree but let me know in the comments below which Philadelphia cheesesteak war sandwich is your favorite and as always all the places I went to is listed for you in my description box below thank you so much for watching until we eat again see you later

    You got to get mayonnaise ketchup fried onions hot and sweets

  • Rebecca H

    I keep telling myself I can't keep watching these because it is making me so hungry. However your reactions to what you are eating and the pure joy as you are discussing what you are eating has made me really enjoy your show. Thank you for sharing 😃

  • Notorious_Hypzo

    At 6:56 he says cheese cake instead of cheese steak 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

  • chi7072

    NOBODY PUTS SALT OR PEPPER IN THEIR STEAKS!!!! ANY SALT IS FROM THE CHEESE

  • GreenLanternSalem

    I am gonna die watching you eat. Lol Btw, you are eating for me . After my surgery recovery, I will get back to eating solid food and will eat something rich and delicious. You have inspired me to rejuvenate my polyamorous relationship with cheese steaks and food in general

  • suchandsuch -

    It's strange but I don't see the appeal in the bread, cheese and meat combo on its own.. It needs some vegetables to be tasty ...hah. I'm not from USA and we don't really have this kind of food so maybe that's why.

  • MrAhuraMazda187

    1) Dalessandros 1b) Joe's Steak + Soda 2) Steve's Prince of Steaks 3) Jims 4) Chubbys 5) Donkeys Place in New Jersey Johns Roast Pork is awesome, but I really cant get past the top 6 i have listed

  • Xavier Flagler

    Max’s is my favorite place that is literally the first place I go when I go home

  • Angela Losole

    Cheesesteak looked great but onions were too big for my taste.

  • Kelefane

  • Cody Steele

  • d0m3r

  • Eliza

    pickles on a cheesesteak is a damn crime. who the hell told you to put that crap on there?

  • dan garcia

    John's roast pork is still my favorite. Prince Steaks is 2 and jims is 3. Now if you want flavor explosion try a trepleta from El Punto. That's still my hangover cure spot

  • Rachel Ouk

    YOU WENT TO PHILADELPHIA?! 😭 I LIVE THERE, I COULD HAVE SEEN HIM. Time for me to go to all these places now.

  • Bob Smith

    My favorite Cheesesteak growing up, was the original Gaetano's in Willingboro, NJ. Unfortunately, I now live in Texas, where a truly good Cheesesteak does not exist. 😢😢😢😢😢

  • Benjamin Emche

    Steve's prince of steaks my favorite. But they are all delicious. Never met a cheese steak I didn't like.

  • C T

    I need to try this dam

  • nickseviltwin1

    Hi Mike: You're a true legend! Have you ever thought about doing a video about food in Mexico? I can give you the royal tour.

  • sunny lanes

    Your eating that larger cheese steak wrong! You’re suppose to pinch the top with one hand and the other hand is at the bottom. That’s why the toppings were falling off

  • Jason Melton

    I have to speak up here! In the early 1990's, I was a short order cook here in San Francisco at a place that is still open called, The Cheese Steak Shop. It's a San Francisco Bay Area chain owned and operated by a Philadelphia native named Keith. He taught us the original way to cook and prepare a cheese steak: oil on the grill, a portion of sliced white onion, a portion of sliced sirloin steak, chop up the steak and onion until minced, shape lengthwise to either a 6" or 15" hoagie roll, cover with slices of Provolone cheese, cover with hoagie roll for one minute to let cheese melt, scoop up and over, sprinkle on top with sweet and hot cherry peppers and serve. The owner flies the Amoroso hoagie rolls in from Philly too!

  • Wali Bashir

    MAX'S all day. He missed GIOVANNI'S, PAGANO'S & EXPLORER'S DEN.

  • Lou Zer

    Cheesesteak is so much betterr with shrooms, but hardly anyone offers them

  • Bob David

    its orgasmic!! i live in Miami Beach and i now know i need to get home . i want to pound a cheese steak

  • NIKE_LIFE_55

    Idk why everyone soooo hype about our cheesestakes🤔😂I lived in philly and people dont be soooo hype and craving them like that

  • Top Hat

    Lmbo great share. Take us back again every year!

  • Kannan Mohan

    Mike, will I ever hear you say this isn't that good 😂

  • Tina So Blessed

    Blessings to d,I hope you had an awesome time in Philadelphia! It seems like you really enjoyed the cheesesteak sandwiches you tried out! 🙏

  • TossedSaladMan iPreferSyrup

    True Cheesesteaks MUST have a roll that has substance. When you bite into it there has to be resistance. Wimpy rolls are not allowed. I’m fortunate enough I was able to procure a nice used (over $500 new) meat slicer for $50. The older gentleman just lost interest in making his own jerky.

  • Brent Millsop

    Have you put together a tour map or a live tour with subscribers?!!

  • BACKSabbath420

    I know people talk about food porn, but I'm only up to the first cheese steak and this actually does border on actual porn. Wow.

  • Lucia Gambino

    Mr. Strickly! I know you like/love thick girls from all the/that meat you love to eat!!!😍😘

  • Anjelica Pinzolas

    I plan on visiting Philly sooner or later, so this video is a huge help to look into which cheeseteaks places to try! Can't wait to try the John's roast pork sandwich too!!

  • Jim Tran

    Jim's Steak was good but NOT worth it for waiting an hour for a sandwich.

  • exlibrisas

    12:30 I swear, I'd think I'm watching porn if I had my eyes closed...

  • Pepito Go

    How can you have a philly cheesesteak with provolone? It's ALWAYS Cheese wiz!

  • Misty Violet, Republican.

  • Michael McNeal

    Mikey you are a foodie god! youre reviews are amazing but what amazes me the most is how much you can eat in a day or a sitting! Keep up the good work and come to Australia one day!

  • Thetechgenius

    You should try "Joe's Steaks, it use to be called "Chinks", because that is the owners Nickname. But for some reason the owners were pressured by people that find everything racist, and the funny thing is, the Chinese people didn't have a problem at all with the name, because it's the Owners Nick name, and they had that same name for over 30 years. lol. It's crazy how some people can find everything racist, even if the race of people didn't have any problem with it.

  • Vatsek

    Do you leave leftovers to your cameraman or you keep him a bit hungry?

  • Thetechgenius

    I was born and raised in Philly. And I must say, other places and states may claim they have great cheese steaks, but Philly has mastered the Cheese Steak, it can not be done better anywhere else but Philly. Have you ever been out of Philly and tried a cheese steak? If you have, you will know no where beats Philly with making cheese steaks. A lot of places out of Philly like to use the leanest meat possible, which makes the steak dry and no flavor. It's one of the many mistakes the places out of Philly make.

  • Abhinav Gupta

    So much beef was wasted while filming this video that i got beef with Mikey Chen now..!!!

  • Sid Joyner

    Lol idk how you ate all that in one day, but Delassandros is usually good, you went to a diverse range of spots and not just the usual tourist traps like Genos and Pats. Honorable mention to Ishkabibbles

  • MLT Woo

    I’ve been to Jim’s and they are the best.

  • JustJan 71

    Outstanding video! I love you because you use the VOCABULARY, a vast collection of descriptive words!! Too many people use phrases like, "super awesome", "super good" , "super... ", and I hate it. Thank you Strictly Dumpling! Cheers!!

  • steffen floch

    Oh Lord I want three of these cheese pork sandwiches so badly....oh I forget I lives in Germany :D

  • Athena Stewart

    What kind of cheeses are on the second and third cheesesteak sandwiches?

  • Hesfly4awhiteguy

    John's roast pork is my fav from philly. Then slightly out the city I love GUMBAS in colmar. And I've had John's roast pork, tony lukes, Jim's on south st, Pat's, genos, delasandros, chubbies and I went to maxs..waited in line 40 min and left without ordering since I moved about 3 spots

  • Jordan Snyder

    They're just called cheesesteaks, not cheesesteak sandwiches ;) I'm from Philly and I've never heard anyone call it a cheesesteak sandwich.

  • Julia H

    Omg that jim’s cheesesteak 🤤 and only $9?

  • Kevin Marshall

    Ishkabibble’s on South Street for cheesesteaks . But John’s roast pork is the best.

  • gemini92406 r

    Next time your there try Nick's Roast Beef on 20th & Jackson in S. Philly get yourself an "end cut overboard" wit sharp provolone.

  • gemini92406 r

    Born and raised in S. Philly, best place for a cheesesteak is Jim's on S. Street. You've already been there so cross off "Mecca" to your list, there is not a sandwich better.

  • Loretta Hutzli

    Philly cheesesteak needs just onions, peppers, cheese, steak and nice bread👌

  • Jhaiy

    Max's is my fav but now I need to try Jim's. Great review!

  • Savage Historian

    Not 1 european would eat that heartattack you murikans call a sandwich. It's just nasty
