Two awesome sandwiches go at it this time. The Cheese Steak, better known as the Philly Cheese Steak is moist meat with cheese, grilled onions and peppers on a hoagie sandwich roll. That is typical Philly Cheese Steak, but the argument in Philly is an ongoing one with how the sandwich is prepared and presented to you. No matter the style or the origin, no one can argue that whatever the choice is, the sandwich is reliably good. Some add hot peppers to bring this sandwich that spicy edge that is often missing in most steak sandwiches.
On the other side of the ledger, the Gyro Sandwich is classic Greek food to it’s core. Thinly sliced lamb layered onto a warm pita with lettuce, tomato and onions with the classic yogurt sauce called Tzatziki. Tzatziki sauce makes this sandwich the special meal that it is. Once you have it there is a special place in your life for more of the same. Unlike the cheese steak, there is very little you can do to change up the gyro. It is what it is. I once had a gyro with a spicy red sauce, and it was perhaps the best gyro I ever had. One problem, that place went out of business within a year. Yet if you do not like the idea of a yogurt sauce, then you can add something else and change the flavor of the sandwich to your liking.
So now the question for you is, which sandwich do you like better? Share with us your thoughts and/or stories.
