In my June post about preparing for a trip to Connecticut I was all about making my trip to Connecticut exciting by visiting places that are new to me. Now that I'm back in Vilnius and reflecting on the trip I'm pleased with the mix of new and old that I visited. Amongst the new places I visited, and will certainly be revisiting, is Philly's A Taste of Philadelphia that boasts 'the best cheesesteaks outside of Philly.' I was a bit skeptical as it seemed so unlikely that such a small restaurant in an unassuming location would have the best cheesesteaks, but I gave it a go anyways. I'm so glad to say that that my skepticism was unfounded and the cheesesteaks were just SO good. J and I both had the original Philly's sandwich, which consisted of high quality meat (no yucky gristle), grilled onions, and Cheese Whiz.  I would have never thought a sandwich with Cheese Whiz would be delicious - but it really was. 

Philly's is located on 33 Sherman Street in Norwich, Connecticut.

Where is the best cheesesteak from that you've ever had?


  1. Ummm yum!!! My tummy is rumbling looking at that pic. I've never had cheesesteak before!

    1. You've got to try cheesesteak! It really is good despite the questionable application of cheese whiz!
