I went to Philly?

Passed this place on Yonge near College. I didn't have time to stop but the sign on the window advertises "American style Philadelphia Cheese Steak sandwiches." I am curious if anyone has tried them out yet and how they measure up.

  1. Just read about this place on Postcity:

    Crazy that they have a whole basement full of Yoohoo.

        Cute story, they definitely sound genuine, hopefully the product is good and they are successful.

      2. Adding this to my list of places to try when in the area next.

        1. Thanks for this info. Definitely looks interesting....

            As someone who lives in Philly, I'm always amazed at how much people enjoy Philly cheese
            steaks. We stayed at a fabulous hotel in Quito and one of their restaurants featured "Steak Sandwich Philly" We thought that was hysterical. And yes, the traditional cheese steak has cheez whiz!

              That link was already posted by num nums earlier. However, there is a new article up on Blogto about this place:

            2. I went in for lunch about a week ago and had the cheese steak with onions peppers, provolone and cheez whiz.
              All in all it was pretty good - not the best cheese steak I've ever had but certainly one of the more authentic ones in Toronto.
              I noticed that the meat seemed to have some sort of sauce on it - I think it was probably a bit of worchester sauce that it might be cooked with. It was good, but I think I prefer cheese steak with just the basic grilled beef flavour.
