Will Smith's favorite food is a Philadelphia cheesesteak. It is a sandwich made from thinly sliced pieces of beefsteak and melted cheese on a long hoagie roll. The cheesesteak was invented in the early 20th century by combining beef, onions, and cheese in a small loaf of bread. The meat that is traditionally used in a cheesesteak is thinly sliced rib-eye or top-round, although other cuts of beef are also used.
At medium temperature, the steak slices are quickly browned and then chopped into smaller pieces with a flat spatula. Slices of cheese, which melts, are placed over the meat, then the roll is placed on top of the cheese. Will's favorite place to get a cheesesteak is Overbrook Pizza, which is located in Philadelphia.
Will Smith - the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and the Man in Black we know and love - relishes a good Philly cheese steak. These sandwiches are made on hoagie buns, with steak and melted cheese. They’re sold in places around the United States, but probably most famously in Philadelphia. Hence the name containing ‘Philly’. Not much is known about where he likes to get them from, but most Philly cheese steak places could probably say he’s a regular if they’re within close enough distance to him.
His love for Philly cheesesteaks probably became apparent in the 1997 movie “Men in Black”. Towards the end of the movie, he’s picking up tabloids and getting lunch. He gets two Philly cheese steak sandwiches - one for him, and one for his partner.
