A note about serious food allergies

A meaty good steak sandwich doesn't just hail from Philly or Chicago. (Just to name two fantastic US cities with great steak sandwich traditions.) Look East to Germany, where the cabbage is sour and salty and the steak sandwich is köstlich. A cheesy Swiss sauce and sweet and sour cabbage add their substantial deliciousness to the tasty meat. Amazing steak sandwiches exist world-wide, and we, for one, are überglücklich about it.
