Review: Philly's Best - Philly Pepper Steak

Philly's Best offers a good rendition of a Philly Cheesesteak out here in the Southland.  Outside of local shops,  this is one of the best places to get a Philly Cheesesteak here in Los Angeles.  It's not as good as my favorite the Cheesesteak Shop up in the Bay area but it passed muster and it's where I go when I feel like some steak and cheese on an Amoroso roll.  They also make a mean Itailian hoagie with Boar Head's deli meats.

The Philly Pepper Steak features thinly-sliced steak, melted white American cheese, and sweet peppers.  You can also get it with Provolone or Cheese Whiz.  I've tried it with Cheese Whiz before and didn't care for it as much as I thought I would.  Sometimes, the bread doesn't taste as fresh as I would like but otherwise it's quite tasty and has locations throughout southern California.


  1. not bad, what are some of the shops up in the bay that you'd recommend?

  2. Hm... depends on what you want to eat... try the taiyaki in Japan Town... You can get them with melted chocolate inside. If you're in Oakland and like beignets, go to Powderface to get some fresh. In San Jose, you can stop by Clover bakery and get a strawberry sandwich... As you can see, I am in a dessert mood =P
