This Sunday the Philadelphia Eagles will be taking on the Kansas City Chiefs in the biggest game of the year. Yes, I’m saying that because I’m not sure if I’m legally able to say… uhh… you know. It’s like the Big Game has become Lord Voldemort AKA “He Who Must Not Be Named.”

Anyway, what goes hand-in-hand with the big game? Commercials, friends, a couple ice cold dranks, and…. FOOD!

This year my family will be cooking up a couple staples from each of the represented cities – Philadelphia and Kansas City. If this sounds like a fun idea for you too, here are 5 dishes that are famous in Philly and 5 dishes that are famous in Kansas City. I say cook a couple from each place, put them out, and see who wins the SB (Big Game) Food Fight!

Of course you could just order a bomb cheesesteak (or “steak and cheese” as we say in these parts). If that’s more your speed, here are some GREAT places to get steak and cheese subs in Massachusetts. Enjoy!
