Carson Daly: Food Truck Friday With South Philly Experience!

[photogallerylink id=114919]

Last week, we didn’t have a Food Truck Friday since Carson was on vacation and let me tell you, it was SORELY MISSED.

We take our food very seriously here at AMP Radio!

To make up for last week’s absence, Carson and Producer Angie called up the masters of the cheese steak sandwich, South Philly Experience, for today’s festivities!

We’ve had a few cheese steak trucks roll into the AMP studios in the past, but owners Scott and Jonathan told Carson all about what sets them apart from their competition.

South Philly Experience are veterans of the LA food truck scene. They launched all the way back in September of 2009.

The idea for a cheese steak truck came about when Jonathan visited SoCal and couldn’t find any authentic Philly sandwiches.

It made sense for he and his cousin Scott to start up a business that would cater to this underrepresented market.

So just like that, the two packed up their lives in New Jersey and high-tailed it to LA.

No matter what kind of cheese steak you’re looking for, South Philly Experience probably has it.

They of course serve the classic version, but also experiment with gourmet flavors like Italian, pizza, and buffalo.

Authenticity is key for Scott and Jonathan. Every sandwich is made fresh to order with bread from the Philly bakery Amoroso’s.

For us healthy LA types, they also whip up a vegetarian version with broccoli rabe, roasted peppers, onions, and provolone cheese.

Saving room for dessert? South Philly Experience sells the East Coast favorite TastyKakes to satisfy your sweet tooth!

Since we finally made it to the weekend, Carson decided to reward an AMP Radio listener with a free lunch for their entire office from South Philly Experience.

Congratulations to today’s winner, Jordan from Santa Monica!

If you want in on the Food Truck Friday fun, listen to Carson every Friday morning for your next shot!
