the Mito is back in New York City where in Brooklyn at brendonandcass famous roast beef sandwiches but the Philly cheesesteak the chopped teeth they are sandwiches it reflect local identity and this book them sandwich is very unique to this area you don't find a family just like this other places there's a French Dip but this isn't really a French Dip it's different this is a really a profound part of Brooklyn culture I don't think you can really understand roof unless you eat in places like this I've seen him many times I usually just get the roast beef here comes on a roll different about me nice and hot yeah cheese onions these and these are playing what's the most popular order most popular is usually with cheese okay so let's get let's get the most popular water what everyone gets okay I'm also fascinated by the cheeseburgers we make our own burger to you okay so let me get a burger or C burger here Cooper hire cooks riff yeah okay and you dip that also if you want it absolutely let's dip it we also have Gargiulo burger which is a hamburger low speeds the cheese you could get engraving you can add onion to it if you like which is is on the rise you know you get the best of both worlds I'm just saying like yes all right all right you can be arrested here is the reason for the existence of this restaurant oh my god it's all fused together I'm trying to open it up and I'm doing the roll at wheels screams I am gonna actually try to pick this one up and it's wow it's gonna be messy the more you bite it sort of more it kind of falls apart very a more for earth that's what you want when you're eating a roast beef sandwich because really do you which is a result of all of the meat being roasted and they just get all that juice coming off it it really concentrated flavor now this is top round which is not the most flavorful cup but it's a good good lean beef has a nice chew to it it's great for roasting what they've done is it even Bute it with flavors of cuts that would probably be more expensive if you cooked it you know in a sort of a quick way but it's slow roasted thinly sliced it's really tender you can see that it's it's got some nice marbling to it for a you know for a sirloin cut it's not bad but you can just feel like the tensile strength is really minimal when we just look at that breaks apart this is undisputably one of the great fan which is one of the reasons to visit look when you must get the brennaman card try this so this is probably one of the first cheeseburgers that I might actually have to resort to a knife and fork because the bomb has completely fallen up yeah there's actually no way to actually pick this up so with all deference to Mayor Bill DeBlasio I am going to use a knife and fork to eat this cheese but I'll look at that it doesn't taste it looks like a cheeseburger at all it's almost like some kind of stew like a beef bourguignon some of the super concentrate along flavors because the bun is just completed will sit under all that juice it's just like like a really beefy sponge desire oh thank you so I've never been called sir so many times what do you think about this I'm old school I don't I don't need to go cause you are my Saint bad I like I like my cheaper like the purity of one again the I want I would have one cheaper roast beef by myself yes that's how that's how I've been how did it get its name call Jules Italian restaurant at Coney Island okay please you come in on a Sunday night after you finish working and instead of just giving them a cheaper it will freeze the fish so little food all at one point so it's basically named after that order yes most of our jewelry quite a mountain of meat and condiments so we got the onions we have double stack of American cheese please the Lord amount a knife water roast beef and then we have the burger patty and then the buttered bun underneath I have mixed emotions about this it's sort of actually I keep looking at both sandwiches and that's kind of what's going on in my mouth like I'm not quite sure what I'm eating like into the cheeseburgers a roast beef sandwich what it's losing is that sort of priority of texture you know when you eat a hamburger clearly the hamburger chunky it's got that stat juiciness to it in the same way we're eating roast beef it's got that tenderness it slide shuffle pulls apart your mouth this kind of does neither but I would Richie for more meat jokes click here now Missy it's led Big Mac you
