A Sandwich a Day: Cheesesteak at Kwik Meal

A Sandwich a Day

A new sandwich every day.

In this great city of ours, one could eat a different sandwich every day of the year—so that's what we'll do. Here's A Sandwich a Day, our daily look at sandwiches around New York. Got a sandwich we should check out? Let us know. —The Mgmt.

While I'm skeptical of many cross-cultural dish mashups, the Cheesesteak Pita ($6) at Midtown cart Kwik Meal is an excellent, excellent thing. The steak is cooked in that deliciously greasy way, in with the peppers and onions and bound together by totally melted cheese. The pita gets thrown on top so that it, too, is warm, and there's so much stuffed inside that the meat, cheese, and peppers are really what you taste. It's as far from a classic cheesesteak as you can get, but it's still a very recommendable lunch.
