Ridding the World of Bad Philly Cheesesteaks. It’s been making the rounds since launching a few days ago thanks to coverage from Technically Philly. And it’s brilliant. We’ve all been there as Philadelphians. We go somewhere outside our wonderful city, and there’s a “Philly Cheese Steak” on the menu. Except they rarely resemble what we as purists actually would consider a cheesesteak. Until now…
Interactive designer and blogger @mikeyil has created a Tumblr to track some of the worst knock-offs and imitations of our sandwich, called “This is Not a Cheesesteak.” His anger was fueled by the new Arby’s commercial promoting their new roast beef sandwich as “The Best Philly Outside Philly.” And he wants your submissions, to help get rid of these imposters.
The20’s @bydanielvictor and @christopherwink have already stamped their approval, and we’re sure plenty of additional Philadelphians will too.
Seen a bad steak imitation lately? Send it to @mikeyil…
