Morimoto Cheesesteak

Cheers to the chef at Morimoto for adding a sushi inspired twist to the city’s traditional Philly Cheesesteak in celebration of the World Series, last week.  Americana-Japanese fushion at it’s best!

Heavy Hitters “Philly & NYC”

November 4, 2009


Two of America’s classic culinary delicacies are: the Philly Cheesesteak and the New York Pizza.  The immortal dishes are two of America’s, most requested dishes. Ironically the cities, that they embody, are battling each other in the MLB World Series.  Regardless of which city is victorious in the World Series, the Philly Cheesesteak and New York Pizza shouldn’t be slandered, because of the cities heated baseball duel.  The grimy pulverized Philly Cheesesteak and the baked to perfection New York Pizza are American icons, with rich histories.

The historic delicacies are even requested as hybrids, hint: the Philly Cheesesteak Pizza and the Pizza Cheesesteak.  Although the headline may suggest that this post depicts an epic culinary battle, this post is an acknowledgement of two traditional American delicacies.  Prior to engaging in a conversation about the World Series at your local supermarket, barbershop or neighborhood YMCA, consider excluding the classic Philly Cheesesteak and New York Pizza from the conversation.

Yankees Fans, Cheesesteak Lovers?

November 3, 2009

The symbolic food of Philadelphia goes well with watching a game of baseball, or any other sport for that matter. The trend of newer ballparks offering all sorts of gourmet food options is nothing new. But now, cheesesteaks have even spread to Yankee Stadium. Carl’s Steaks, owned by Yankees Fan Carl Provenzano, has two Manhattan locations and has been selling steaks at Yankee Stadiums for the past four seasons. Carl’s opened it’s first location in 2003, and is credited to be the first establishment dedicated to cheesesteaks in NYC. Conflict of interest anyone? How can these Yankees fans line up in droves while their team is playing the Phillies, to enjoy a sandwich that symbolizes all that is Philly and the passions of its teams and fans? They might as well just put on Phillies hats. Might I suggest you stick to what you’re good at and continue to eat pizza and hot dogs. Also, according to Provenzano, his sandwiches are sometimes even served to the team as a pregame meal. Well one can only hope the Yankees players will choke on their Delicious PHILLY cheesesteaks and choke in game 6, tomorrow night at 8.
