Thai Chef & Noodle Fusion, 2028 Chestnut St. 215.568.7058
The competition for best Philly sports food is stiff, especially at Citizens Bank Park which features culinary delights from Tony Luke's and Geno's Steaks. However nothing on the menus at the city's sports venues is as outrageously tasty as The Schmitter. A gastronomically extravagant cheesesteak hybrid with steak, tomato, fried onions, salami, cheese and special sauce on a Kaiser roll, the sandwich is not named after Phillies Hall of Fame third baseman Mike Schmidt. It was originally prepared at McNally's in Chestnut Hill. So good it has been served at the Super Bowl (it's also on the menu at the Linc), the sandwich is so filling it should come with a warning: The effect in your stomach afterward is like swallowing a spare tire, which is what your waistline will resemble if you become addicted to this caloric nightmare. Fat aside, it sure beats a soggy soft pretzel.
