Really nice event in the GFC this morning. We watched practice and then CWF came in and spoke to
the crowd and took questions. New concessions were out for taste-testing, including Liberty Cheesesteaks. There were also raffles.

I was told 500 rsvpd.

Are cheesesteaks in New Orleans better than muffulettas in Philly? :lol:

I've never been to Philly so I don't have a benchmark there but I can vouch for Liberty being pretty legit. They opened up in the tiny building across the street from where Dat Dog started on Freret and also might outgrow there.

Is it true that real cheesesteaks have cheez whiz or is that an urban myth?

Yup, that's the classic, as disgusting as it sounds. Or you can have provolone or American, but whiz and grilled onions with a little bit of cooked mushrooms is the original artery clogger. It's very good.

A good cheesesteak in New Orleans equates to good jambalaya in Philadelphia.

Some things are just left best to the experts.

It's a Tulane alum from Philly who started Liberty Cheesesteaks. Not gonna claim it would rival something in Philly, but they're actually pretty good. And made with cheese whiz.

I'm sure it's decent enough, especially since a key ingredient is the roll it's served on and New Orleans knows it's baked goods.

Similarly, there is something called Beck's Cajun Cafe in Reading Terminal Market in Philly (http://readingterminalmarket.org/merchants) that does a respectable job with jambalaya, po' boys and muffulettas. Not New Orleans, but close enough if you can't fly the 1200 miles.
