Since Philly is the cheesesteak capital of the universe, we already know the lines at Pat’s and Geno’s are going to be insane this week with the DNC. But if you’re a true Philly native, you know that there’s more to the cheesesteak scene and that the crowds are just annoying.
So, to avoid the crowds (and get a better sandwich), all you have to do is head right across the street. Food Underground is back at Garage tonight with their two “pop-up” sandwiches the Frizwit and the Sabih.
The Frizwit debuted last September and is simply the best cheesesteak around. Made with grass fed, frizzled beef from Kensington Quarters, served with cheese from Hidden Hills Dairy and Birchrun Hills Farm and then topped with charred and caramelized onions and served on a Ba Le Bakery roll, it really doesn’t get much better.
Okay Shake Shack fanatics, this one is just for you.
If you didn’t manage to get your hands on Shake Shack’s limited edition, 100% all-natural, split and griddled flat-top hot dog a few years ago at Feastival (the only time it has ever been offered in Philly), that’s okay—now you have another chance.
On Wednesday night, the night before the night before Christmas, Scott Schroeder and his Hungy Pigeon staff will be stirring at the Garage on East Passyunk. The ohsoclosetoopening restaurant (hopefully today’s inspections will be passed) will be offering a preview at the Garage starting at 6 p.m. There will be beer cocktails and food including “Christmas Pig Tacos” and marinated squash salad.
