How Are Korean Cheesesteaks Different from Philly Cheesesteaks?

Three things characterize the iconic Philly Cheesesteak from Philadelphia: the bread with soft insides and crunchy exterior, the cut of meat (typically ribeye), and the cheese (cheese whiz, American, provolone, or a mixture of the three). Therefore, “who has the best Philly cheesesteak?” debates often bring out many controversial opinions in the states.

While Korean cheesesteaks deliver fabulous sandwiches and tastes, they may not adhere to the same guidelines for which cheesesteaks in Philadelphia are known. In our experiences, we have found that the breads most often used for cheesesteaks here are a bit softer overall, the cut of meat cut varies quite a bit, and no cheese whiz is yet to be found.

Since each person brings different experiences and tastes to the table, remember that what you find to be the best or the closest to a Philly cheesesteak may be different for someone else. Consequently, we recommend trying several locations to see which location offers your favorite version. Also, be prepared for this to be a controversial topic when choosing who makes the best cheesesteak locally!

While living in Korea, we have found some fantastic cheesesteaks. Also, if you have not experienced a bulgogi cheesesteak, it is a delicious fusion food in several local restaurants that you should try. There are many restaurants in the area creating their own fusion versions of cheesesteaks and should definitely be tried!

Check Out KimchiRednecks’ Cheesesteaks in Pyeongtaek Videos

Neither Chuck or Melissa are from Philadelphia. However, Melissa has been to Philadelphia and tried two of the most famous local cheesesteaks, Geno’s and Pat’s. When we decided to do our cheesesteak battle, we also contacted our friend, Jerry Tiede, who is from the area for our cheesesteak criteria.

Since we know this is a hotly debated topic, we prefer to refer to cheesesteaks in Korea as simply cheesesteaks. Just like in the states, there are many places that make fabulous cheesesteaks but that does not make them the iconic “Philly Cheesesteak.” We leave it up to you as to whether you find that to be a good or bad thing. Honestly, we just love good cheesesteaks and supporting our community businesses!

We have ventured out to enjoy several of the cheesesteaks in Pyeongtaek. Certainly, you will find that we have some favorite places when you check out our videos. However, we will continue to enjoy cheesesteaks at the other local locations. Obviously, we appreciate the unique flavor options that each business brings to the table. Therefore, don’t be surprised to find us enjoying a cheesesteak at any local restaurants or finding a new favorite.

While we don’t video all our food adventures, we try to get as many local places as possible to support our community. Check out our YouTube page to see our restaurant reviews, cooking videos and more. We are constantly adding new content. In addition, you can find us on Facebook and Instagram for updates on life, videos and more.
