Philly Cart – Cheesesteak
After the dearth of good Philly Cheesesteaks in town, on my way home on Friday I stopped at a suspicious cart on Bank Street (near the corner of Bank and Church) in Burlington Vermont:

After a quick interrogation of the vendor, I discovered he was indeed slinging cheesesteaks.
The Amoroso bakeryplacard plastered on the side of the cart may have been a good clue. Notice the above photo the technique. He chops the fresh shaved ribeye steak “from New York” on the cooler (left) side of the griddle then added pre-sweated onions to the mix and grills it on the right hotter side.

Three slices of American cheese also are part of the formula. All of this is crammed into the aforementioned famous (for Phillys) roll.
The taste? Tremendous! It reminds me of when I had my first “cheesesteak” on a family trip to Maine, known in those parts as a “steak bomb”.
This folks is a mean mean cheesesteak, I’m not sure if it will earn my number one cheesesteak spot; I’ll have to
do some more “research”. The vendor promises to be around starting at 11am during the week, save Mondays and Tuesdays.
Oh and it’s $6.
