You eating this?

Couple of observations here. First, there doesn’t appear to be any cheese on this cheesesteak, unless it’s buried beneath that mountain of peppers and mushrooms. Second, the purple coloring looks like my four year old spilled her Kinetic Sand in the bun (don’t buy it until they’re older, it’s too messy). Third, the bread itself is dark, like some kind of pumpernickel or the brown slices they give you at Outback Steakhouse. Nowhere in the Delaware Valley would you find a cheesesteak that looks anything like this, therefore, it is it not a “Philly” cheesesteak.

The reason for the purple is because Orlando City wears purple. Purple and white and a light gold type of color. This would be like the Flyers offering an orange-colored Passyunk Chorizo, or the Phillies putting red food coloring in your Crabfries. Nobody needs that. Nobody wants that.

FYI Suffocation wrote a song about this cheesesteak:
