When Miles went to Philadelphia for his class trip a few years ago, he had his first Philly cheese steak sandwich and took a selfie as proof.

I’ve made two, day trips there on my own since moving back to the east coast (DC is really the south I guess) and have tried a couple of cheese steaks on my own. For my first weekend stay in the city, I didn’t really need to try another one, but Miles wanted me to get one and recreate the selfie he took a few years ago. Well, “the Dude abides” (Big Lebowski reference) and I needed to fulfill his request. But where? During one of my many Uber rides over the weekend, my friend and I struck up a conversation with our driver who was a Philly native and asked him where he would go. Without hesitation he said Ishkabibbles. I was instantly sold by the name. He recommended that I get the cheese steak with both American and Cheez Whiz, onions and sweet peppers that were cooked with the steak.

This was by far my favorite cheese steak! It was freshly cooked, juicy and flavorful. And the hoagie was super soft and chewy. Just look at it!

My friend didn’t think that I would finish the whole thing, but I’m pretty sure that once the sandwich was in my hands, it never touched the wrapper again. I would highly recommend this place if you’re ever on South Street.

And I took a selfie just for Miles.
