The Top Ten Dishes of 2008 - #10: Cheesesteak at 9th Street Deli

Posted By on Thu, Dec 11, 2008 at 2:46 PM


The cheese is a nuclear shade of orange, a hue that sticks a knife in the heart of cheesemongers and Slow Food acolytes, but one that yours truly still finds irresistible. The cheese is not merely melting but a luscious liquid ooze. Glorious Cheese Whiz! Is the rest of the cheesesteak "reasonably" authentic? Yes. The steak is shredded and tender, the roll soft but not dissolving, the onions sliced thin and caramelized perfectly.
