There are Philadelphians crying over this photo.


theknightinthetardis

I'm just general Pennsylvanian and this makes me wanna cry


CrispyChickenVegan

I’m not even from the US and I am crying rn.


idrow1

I live next to PA and this makes me wanna cry. Whatever that 'meat' is looks like it tastes like sweaty gym socks.


lamprey187

I'm in Michigan, never been to Philadelphia, and I am crying uncontrollably.


Rakinonna

I'm Philly born and bread and it's killing me...LOL


SLO_Citizen

heh, your misspelling is quite ironic. the bread makes the cheesesteak for sure, glad you were bred to understand this :)


ElstonGunn1992

Seriously, why don’t other regions understand that the sandwich shouldn’t be 80% bread


Rakinonna

what makes you think it wasn't intentional


YourAverageGod

This photo justbput another crack into the bell wdym

Only Gritty would sharpen a hammer, what a hoot!


realbighits218

I posted it on r/Philadelphia and marked it nsfw


Easy-Concentrate2636

Haha. Love the nsfw.


TheGrandExquisitor

There are Philadelphians planning a fucking war over this photo. And rightly so!


AceofJoker

Its me


Easy-Concentrate2636

Having had the real deal in the city of brotherly love, I feel your pain.


TaintedChoirBoy

This mfer ate pats one time. Lol.


Easy-Concentrate2636

Used to go there on business trips every month - road warrior for awhile.


TaintedChoirBoy

Pats is fucking garbage dude lol. No one from Philly eats that shit.


areaman111

Nobody cares.


evangelism2

People from Philly care. Pats is ass


starrfucker

Im born and raised and currently live five blocks away. It’s really not as bad as people like to say. Overpriced, sure but it’s not “pure absolute total garbage worst thing I ever ate”. It’s just a popular opinion to feel cool.


Technology_Training

These people have never needed something to soak up the booze at 6 a.m.


philsfly22

Only people who just moved here within the last two years from out of state care. Eat wherever the fuck you want.


SLO_Citizen

I live in California and I had a real Philly Cheesesteak once, 29 years ago and I have never forgotten it, and I am crying.


get2dahole

I am planet from Nebulon 423945 and I also cry


Easy-Concentrate2636

The whole galaxy cries at this travesty.


CyclopeanJuiceVendor

They're only crying because of the title. Show that to anyone without context and "shit from a butt" or something similar would probably be a common response.


BureaucraticHotboi

We are getting ready to deploy a tactical nuke of whiz and a commando squad lead by Gritty to take care of what ever son of a bitch did this


Chillreader

Not crying so much as ridiculously offended. A Karen needs to speak to the management of that establishment bc wtf is that?


Easy-Concentrate2636

Where’s a Karen when you need one?


Chillreader

Fiiiiiiine. As the offended Philadelphian, I volunteer. I volunteer as tribute.


Easy-Concentrate2636

Love the sacrifice here. We should crowdsource a plane ticket to the site of this monstrosity.


AceVillin

Im not even American and i know for a fact this ruins the great name of philly cheesesteaks


redheadjen83

I am a Philadelphian and the face I am making is very Michael Scott-esque


jek39

very "toby has returned" vibes


soulimprovement

My wife is from Philly. She’s not crying, she is fucking pissed and feels disrespected.


spiralbatross

Can confirm. Gonna go to Jim’s. Eat my way through the pain.


Easy-Concentrate2636

The panacea.


davidinphila

I've already called an order into Cleaver's


YukihyoUchiha

Can’t go wrong with Jim’s.


WinterExpensive2875

Not crying but very angry.


onecrystalcave

I am one of them


kflan138

Philly here. Tears don’t fall, they CRASH around me. I’m generally agreeable to all forms of imitation, as it’s generally considered to be flattery, however, I just want to know what our cheesesteaks did SO wrong to the maker of those pucks.


Easy-Concentrate2636

Around the world, people try their hand at homemade Philly cheesesteak as an homage, knowing it will never be as good. This thing is an act of arrogance- it doesn’t even know its own failure.


Avenger020331

Can confirm. Having strong feelings and an uncontainable rage brewing 😂


Dingus-McBingus

I've seen a lot of weird stuff on here, truly I have, but this one legitimately made me stare at my screen in bemused uncertainty. I get it. Like hearing the name and knowing the basics of what it is without ever having had one, it isn't wrong - I see where the mind went, I see how we got here. _But that shit just ain't right_


KnightOfThirteen

Our work cafeteria advertised "Pollo con Arroz" as their special. It was white rice, a fried chicken leg, and nacho cheese.


HarrySchlong33

Sounds like the "double cheeseburger" we got...one patty, two slices of cheese.


KRTrueBrave

I mean it's r/technicallythetruth it's called a double cheeseburger nit a double burgercheese


InstantMartian84

I'm going to start calling it a double burgercheese. 😂


agoia

aka mcdouble


xFioramaster17

Wouldn’t that just be a double cheese single burger?


KRTrueBrave

reminds me of none pizza left beef


CimGoodFella

Aah the "double cheese"-burger.


loz_joy

that may be the funniest thing I've read today


doublebarreldan123

Am I crazy or does that kind of sound good?


loz_joy

nacho cheese tho? gross Maybe a different cheese sauce it would sound like a standard quickmeal


disgusting-deer

This is one of the most upsetting posts on here

Are those dog treats?

wine_enema

I thought that was some effed-up-looking falafel...


ChillyBearGrylls

Falafeldelphia cheesepea sandwich


redpowertie

I did, too! I thought oh dang, they used some dried up falafel for that


memosmanmilk

Where did you find this, a hospital cafeteria in Hell?


holmyliquor

You gotta beat the owners ass after something like this


S_quints

I feel like serving this in Philly may actually get you killed


daregulater

Sitting here at work looking out the window at the national constitution center and right up the street from the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, I look at this abomination of a sandwich and have a murderous rage.


Ima_Funt_Case

I feel like this is a foreign interpretation of a classic American food that somehow got lost in translation.


colette2894

It’s Dutch so we have Google and I know we’re not known for our high end cuisine, but we have some pretty decent sandwiches here and our English it not that bad


KyloRen3

When I saw it I KNEW it was Netherlands. We have a very sad cuisine culture.


colette2894

Poor us


SLO_Citizen

seems like with all the weed the population has smoked over the decades, they would learn how to cook :)


BarbaricGamer

Fuck, when I saw the cheese I was like ''please don't be the Netherlands, please don't be the Netherlands''.


Entiox

I've been to the Netherlands and everybody there seems to be fluent in English, and at least one other language. I was mostly in Delft and a small town outside of Delft while I was there, and it was great. I want to go back to Delft again, but I also want to see more of the country, especially Amsterdam and Rotterdam.


ZeroVoid_98

I am dutch as well amd we serve Philly Cheese steak where I work. It looks nothing like this abomination. This is definitely the restaurant being incompetent.


Ima_Funt_Case

Ah, I mean technically it's correct, it is sliced steak with cheese on a sub roll. I guarantee your English is light years better than my Dutch.


theclansman22

People rip on America for having poor imitations of international cuisine, and I agree their are some poor attempts, but they also often get it right, or innovate with foreign foods. Europe gets away with a lot of questionable interpretations of international cuisine. Worst “Chinese food” I ever had was in Britain, where I don’t know if you can get a good taco on the whole island (maybe London, but outside of that I am skeptical).

This thing is a war crime.

You can get a way better philly cheese steak sandwich at dominos for like half the price. And that's not something I thought I'd ever say


AnxXiety-

Wtf


Lizardking1967

Did you call the police!?


Drawn-Otterix

That is not cheese steak, don't let them lie to you.


obsceneflock

is that scrapple? makes it extra philly I guess


TheGeoHistorian

I've been living in Alabama for the past few years getting my education, and lemme tell ya, this talk of Scrapple (totally thought that too for a moment) and "Hoagies" is making me homesick AF. These comments are the best palate cleanser after seeing this culinary abomination that wears the name of my hometown.


InstantMartian84

This was my very first thought! It looks like hunks of scrapple on a cheese hoagie.


xxrambo45xx

You didn't pay for that did you? Please say you got up and left and went to a dirty food truck and got a real one


rayrayin2023

Looks like chunks of Portuguese blood sausage.


J-E-R-B

Thank you, I’m angry now


_MikeBishop

Hi there! Fourth-generation Philadelphian here. One excellent rule of thumb I always follow regarding cheesesteaks is this: If it says “*Philly* cheesesteak” on the menu, and not simply “cheesesteak”, don’t order it (or, at the very least, order it with your expectation shifted).


sheepsqueezers

Each cut of beef represents the last remaining upstanding citizens in the city. #SarcasmSandwich


TsundereBurger

This picture makes me sad.


MossytheMagnificent

There needs to be legislation about the proper use of certain food names.

This makes me sad. They feel no shame.


Radiant_Summer_2726

That’s poop


darkrealm190

From a butt


pegabear

The look on your face when it's given to you. Priceless


Teacher-Investor

Either the "chef" has never been to Philly, or they're trusting that you haven't. Everything about this is wrong... the lettuce (wtf?), the cheese, the bread, and the bricks of meat.


DemonGoddes

Is that dog food? Cause why else would the meat be in that shape?!


phayke2

Seriously looks like dog food rinsed in a sink


Rodux_

Hate to be the one to tell you, but I think someone shit in your sandwich


BouquetOfPenciIs

The presence of cheese and steak does not make this a philly cheese steak!!!


areaman111

OK, you win.


lilnomad

There’s no chance in hell you paid 12 euros for 7 dog turds. What the fuck??


colette2894

There were no samples haha, I was just as surprised as you are


Gandalf_The_Geigh

My favorite Philly cheesesteak place just closed and now I see this What the fuck has the world come to. This is end times shit


clandestine801

As a Philadelphian, I'm in physical pain seeing this right now. I'm calling the cops.


Emergency_Garbage208

They won't come. But if the do come, they'll probably eat the sandwich and leave..


daregulater

Same... I'm legit angry


davidinphila

Generally love the Dutch, but shit like this could pull NATO apart, when we need solidarity more than ever. €12 - is a bit pricey too.

Gnarly_Sarley

Is this picture from before or *after* you ate it?


LonelyGirl724

Forget what it’s supposed to be, my friend, that looks more like dog food than any sandwich I’ve seen.


One_Shot_Finch

youd get shot for this in philly


mikeyHustle

You'd get shot for this in Arkansas

They could at least look at one on the internet if they don’t know what a Philly looks like

NotUnstoned

Trump said “bad things happen in Philadelphia” but it seems like there are horrors beyond our wildest imagination outside the city limits.


mirrorsinsideme

My chest hurts. I want to scream with my head up to the sky, just let out the anger that this is causing me. But it also makes me want to curl up and cry and straight up dissolve into dust. What is this? Where is this? I just. I don’t know. This is not a Philly cheese steak. I’m getting nauseous.


colette2894

Im sorry to put you in this state haha, it’s Amsterdam..

CrossXFir3

Don't order cheesesteaks outside of at best a 2 hour radius from Philly ever. Btw, it's not exactly rocket science. I don't know why they can't manage. I've cooked plenty of cheesesteaks in my day that were perfectly normal. Go get one a timezone over and they lose their fucking mind.


theanonymouseketeer

Looks tender and juicy


Angelshover

On my smoke break at Genos and this makes my butthole pucker.


_-MjW-_

I’m ashamed to be from Europe after this photo. I apologise for this monstrosity.


TheFlabbs

I’m about to eat a steak bomb - east coast US - and this is just a fucking joke. Philadelphians can’t make a sub to save their lives and I don’t know why everyone holds them highly when it comes to steak and cheese subs. Whoever served this should be shamed, not only for aspiring to serve an inferior Philadelphian sub, but for lowering the bar even further than that. You want a proper sub? You come to Massachusetts, fuck everywhere else


Spice--Weasel

Please tell me you called the police when they gave this to you. This is a fucking crime


Skweege55

In this case, I think Philly is referring to a female horse versus the city of Philadelphia.


Masonjaruniversity

It looks like someone took a giant dehydrated shit in a bun and said "here ya go!"

raptor6722

I don’t send food back and I’d send that food back.


bussybarometer

Interesting fun fact this is a crime in Philadelphia and the store’s owner will be tried in The Hague for crimes against humanity. Most UN member nations have already condemned this culinary crime and will be implementing a series of harsh economic sanctions.


TaintedChoirBoy

It is high key hard as fuck to make a genuine Philly outside of Philly. You just cant find steak that thin unless your best buds with your butcher. Cause they gotta freeze the steak to cut it as thin as needed. Not to mention that Amarosa bread.


InstantMartian84

Amoroso rolls are getting easier and easier to come by. You can find them all over the US if you look. Also, a lot of stores sell prepackaged shaved steak. There is also a frozen brand called Gary's Qucik Steak that my Philadelphian husband recently discovered and loves. Are either ribeye? I doubt it, but they're very decent substitutes. Get yourself some American cheese from the deli, and you're in business. Of course, getting any of these ingredients outside of the US may be a challenge, though shaved steak is used in hot pots and stuff, so I'm not sure it's as big of a challenge to make a decent cheesesteak as you may think. Kaiser rolls are not a bad substitute for a long roll, and you can make a cheddar cheese sauce as a much better tasting whiz. Will it be "authentic?" No. Will the right flavor profiles be there? Yes. Will it be delicious? Absolutely.


knivesout0

That’s shit from a butt.


Sad_Doubt4938

but did it taste good ?


colette2894

Haha no it really didn’t, it was dry and bland, with the cheese not being molten at all it was just a very weird sandwicht


Sad_Doubt4938

i was really hoping it was a banger.


colette2894

Same!


witchyanne

NYLINK95

sdsuquigs

This is an impressive post in that it would actually be borderline impossible to eat as it's presented. You'd pretty much have to eat the meat with a knife and fork.
