Peter McAndrews’ Scrapple Cheesesteak is on the menu now.
Andrew Zimmern and Bizarre Foods were in town for their 200th episode and Zimmern got together with Paesano’s Peter McAndrews for a scrapple cheesesteak. In the episode, which first was broadcast a month ago, McAndrews walks Zimmern through making the scrapple and turning it into a riff on the cheesesteak. McAndrews compares the sandwich to Philadelphia itself, ballsy, tough, made with love, integrity and flavor.
The sandwich is currently on the menu at the Italian Market location of Paesano’s. That location has just extended its hours. You can now get a Paesano’s sandwich from 11 am to 5 pm, Monday through Saturday and 11 am to 3 pm on Sundays.
