The newly launched Baltimore Banner takes a swing at Philly
First off, we want to say congrats to The Baltimore Banner, a digital news publication that launched yesterday. As another new local outlet, we salute them.
- Now that that's out of the way … They really chose Day 1 to take a shot at our lovely city with this story: Six Baltimore cheesesteaks that are better than almost anything in Philly?
What they're saying: "Philadelphia's carryout restaurants often use Cheez Whiz on their subs, which makes the cheesesteak practically inedible," The Banner's Taji Burris writes. "Pair that with the seldom-toasted bread, beef that tastes reheated, and lettuce that overshadows the whole sandwich, and you'll regret even buying one."
Our thought bubble: Yeah, Cheez Whiz is an option, but it's not the default. Any establishment with respect will ask what kind of cheese you want.
- Second, who is putting lettuce on their cheesesteak? It doesn't belong.
But in all seriousness, more local news is good news. Congrats, Baltimore!
