One bite was all it took – burger boy and I were hooked! We didn’t even know what a Philly cheesesteak was until Corey on his food on foot tour took us to Philly Slim’s Cheesesteak (789 9TH AVENUE - 52nd & 9th, NYC) which is this little eatery in Hell’s Kitchen, it’s not a place you would sit and eat at, more buy and eat outside or as you walk.
The Philly cheesesteak was absolutely amazing and for those of you who haven’t had one, it is like a roast beef roll except with cheese melted through the beef. I’m not sure what sauce they use but it is much better than gravy and I love gravy. Throughout our 5 week travel through America, we didn’t find one philly cheese steak the same as Philly Slim’s so if you are ever in New York City, Philly Slim’s Cheesesteak is a must visit – just make sure you check out their opening hours as one out of the many times we went there it was closed.
More on New York City foodie finds next time! If you’re heading to America sometime soon, send me a message or comment and I’ll give you a list of restaurants / casual eateries we discovered and loved.
