You Montrealers should consider yourselves mighty fortunate to be able to have such cuisine that can compete with Philadelphias blessed Cheesesteak.

I mean, what does Vancouver have to compete with that? Smoked salmon? Bleh...

Even Calgary can matchup against them with their juicy tenderloin, but all we have on the west cost is Weight Watcher food!

This question should never even be asked in civilized society. Only uncouth ruffians - people with dirty fingernails and scabby elbows - would eat something called a "cheesesteak" ...

Ok so... steak comes from cows and cheese comes from cows.

So i guess you guys in Philly must have herds of cheesecows like this one, right?

I agree after all a good poutine is a meal in itself.

Not only that but we have the Montreal Smoked meat & Montreal Bagel...Poutine is just king of the Hill.

Its like having Lemieux, Gretzky and Rocket Richard on your team.

I don't get your question.

Coupla points, though ...

a) I am not from Philly, and if I were you would never catch me admitting it.

2) the whole "cheesesteak" thing ... anyone can slap cheese on hot meat and call it "cheesesteak". Big friggin' deal. It's still only a sammich.

Poutine is different, requiring a specific set of finely-honed skills to prepare. The poutine artisan must lovingly craft potato, curd (where possible) and gravy into a delectable mixture of unified goodness such that one cannot detect where frie ends and curd begins.

Really no comparison.

So what consist of a REAL Philly cheese other than steak, cheese, onions and bread? is there some kind of sauce thats used, or maybe the type of cheese is local to Philadelphia?
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.

Pot.

You guys have some pretty good pot.

You'd think with so much fine pot going around, you guys would have more refined taste in munching foods.

If you really think that people who smoke weed have more refined tastes in food...you've either not smoked any or have smoked too much. The last thing people care about when they have munchies is what sometimes tastes like. You give a guy with munchies a big bag of chips or a cheap burger and fries (McD's) and they're in hog heaven...not exactly epicurian delights.

True, but really, I don't undestand how you could eat smoked salmon and tofu as munchies.

You'd still think they'd have good fatty foods.

Cheez Whiz, and I am not joking.
Other than that, some places use American or Provolone cheese, but a cheesesteak with Cheez Whiz is definitely the best, and you are talking with a guy with a balanced healthy (almost veggie) diet.

Like they say in Herouxville: Tant qu'a manger d'la scrap, aussi bien d'en manger comme il faut !!!

Never had a real philly cheese steak, so I can't judge.

However, Montreal's bagels rule all.

Strong coffee, and a fresh, doughy bagel right out of the oven=nirvana. That **** rocks.

Smoked meat on rye, with hot mustard is pretty hard to beat.

I only like poutine when I am really drunk, and really cold.

Man... I just saw this thread eating my quiche and I almost threw up...

I can stomach a poutine each 4-5 months (that's about the time my stomach takes to digest it and my brain to unlearn the taste...)

Still, I do eat poutine once or twice a year... but that cheesesteak seems just not right...

Sorry guys, but I prefer burning cheap gas in my car and eating quality food than the reverse...

Not lot of people know this but you Philly fans must understand that Poutine is a food group all by its own.

Just like beer.

Pennsylvania has an amazing culture of horrible foods. It's the snack food capital of the world (so many potato chip and pretzel companies are based here) and most areas have their own special foods that belong to a food group all there own.

And PA is one of the best areas in North America for microbrewed beer.

I went in a business trip a few years back in New Jersey and on the menu they had "Poutine" so I obviously had to try it.....What was it?

Fries, gravy sauce and........slices of semi-melted Velveeta cheese, I said semi 'cause you could clearly saw that it was slices of cheese....

I've never ordered a poutine anywhere else but in Quebec after that....There's surely some other places in the world where they now know to make it...
