Too long have the Cheesecake Factory and the Beefcake factory divided our Mayhemdom. It is time for unity. It is time for...
Cheesecake + Beefcake = CHEESESTEAK!!!
*hits a giant lever and the Cheesesteak Factory whirs to life, big machine parts turning. Tasty cheesesteaks of all shapes and sizes starts rolling off the conveyor belts*
But I will need your help, for the Factory is only just starting, and I have but a few samples to start us off on. I doubt we'll ever match the mass quantity of tec's bakery or MEDdMI's factory, but we'll make it up in quality! Feel free to post your own Cheesesteak.
A few notes/rules:
1.) Try to keep it to cheesesteak-like foods, such as cheesesteaks, plainsteaks, grinders, hoagies, subs etc, and not just random sandwiches.
2.) Photos, official art, or fanart only. Please don't post Photoshop or pictures of real cheesesteaks. This is mostly just to keep it in parallel with tec's bakery and MEDdMI's factory.
3.) It's OK to post pics that happen to have people in them, but the focus should be on the cheesesteaks. All shapes and sizes are ok, not just shorties and footlongs.
4.) Kaiser rolls, paninis, and the like are totally fine (though I would prefer if the breads identify as steak rolls and look more obviously like steak rolls. I feel that sandwiches that identify as wraps, English muffins, etc. can go to The Pit).
5.) Humanoid cheesesteak consumers are ok (e.g., foodies), but try to keep them a bit more on the sexy/foody side, or it'll just be a "random sandwich with ugly people" thread. Do NOT post any pics of Subway, Subway sandwiches, or Jared from Subway.
6.) Banh Mi is fine, but try to keep it tasty/cutting-board safe. Don't worry. It's rather difficult to make a Banh Mi that isn't full of tastiness.
Self-imposed rules (enforced for myself but no one else has to bother)
6.) Even though I have consumed my fair share of plainsteaks (and even pizzasteaks), I will not post my own cheesesteaks here, that feels like self-promotion to me. If anyone else wants to post my sandwich art however, please ask me first (though I don't have much sandwich art of well-known cheesesteaks anyway).
7.) This version won't just be about the looks. I'm usually more for personality and backstory, and will be posting blurbs about why I like these cheesesteaks.
8.) I will try to give a general theme for the pics I post.
9.) I will use as much official sandwich art as I can, but may post some fan sandwich art if I like it.
First up is a Pork/Meatball Banh Mi that makes me want to sing, "Good Morning, Vitenam!":
