But the Gateway Gourmet and I were emailing last week about whether there is a Howard County option for a great Philly sandwich. And it's a specific sandwich. It's not a gourmet steak sandwich with sliced strip steak served on a baguette. It's a cheesesteak that looks something like this:
- Lean, thin-sliced steak, probably cooked through on a flat griddle.
- Cheese melted into the meat. The GG and I both want provolone. We know Cheese Whiz is authentic in Philly, but it's not welcome on our sandwich.
- A good sandwich roll. Good bread needs at least a slight crust, but the right rolls are softer than a baguette yet stand up to the filling.
- A few options -- onions, peppers, hot peppers. The GG wants mayo. I'll agree to disagree.
Anyone know this sandwich in Howard County? Near Howard County? The Royal Pizza in Columbia pops up occasionally when people recommend sandwiches or wings. Do they do a good cheesesteak? I was also thinking about the New York Deli -- just for good ingredients and a broad menu.
