In Philly, A Cheesesteak Is Just A Cheesesteak

New, 1 comment

When you order a cheesesteak in Philadelphia, you don't refer to is as a "Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich." It's just a cheesesteak. Kinda like if you went to China, you wouldn't call it "Chinese food" just ya know... food.

This is a lesson that the publishers of the new Superman comic, which is actually set in our fair city, need to learn.

Our Krypton-born, Kansas-bred protagonist lacks schooling in the finer points of ordering a cheesesteak — he inelegantly dubs it a "Philly cheese steak sandwich" — but the waitress taking his order lets the faux pas slide. She also cheerfully allows the cash-strapped superhero, who was a vegetarian in another DC series several years back, to work off his bill by cleaning a storage room.
