The fresh prince said it's not a real Philly unless you can see right through the bag.lol
For instance, I had a poutine in Ontario and it was made with frozen fries and mozzarella cheese and had a completely different type of gravy, not even close to an authentic one made in Quebec.
I don't know, but I think we can all agree that there is like 250 good spots to eat Poutine in Quebec, all of us with our own favorites. There's really just 5 or 6 spots in Philly (and nowhere else) where you can have a real good cheesesteak - so there must be something special about it. I personnaly think it's the way they cook the meat, with so much fat and juice on the pane that it looks scary... And don't listen to the guy who said you had to eat it with cheeze whiz, you gotta go with provolone!
Between the two I can't choose, but I'd definitely rank Philly's cheesesteak ahead of Montreal's smoke meat (and I love smoke meats).
