Pat’s King of Steaks is offering an Alba White Truffle Cheesesteak on Thursday, November 17th, starting at 12:30 p.m. The $20 highfalutin take on the cheesesteak is the result of this past weekend’s White Truffle Charity Auction that took place at the Union League in Philadelphia. Pat’s owner, Frank Olivieri, purchased a truffle for $2,500 to support the National Italian American Foundation.

As Philadelphians, we’re not sure that truffles and cheese whiz go together. Maybe this is a case of putting lipstick on a pig but, then again, Italians probably said the same thing about cheese and steak when Pat Olivieri, inventor of the cheesesteak, decided to found his restaurant in 1930.

Where: 1301 East Passyunk Avenue
When: Thursday November 17th, 12:30 p.m.
Price: $20
