Don't Put Lettuce on My Filet-O-Fish, Don't Put Arugula on my Cheesesteak

I'm an admitted Cheesesteak Snob and normally will not order one outside of a 30-mile radius from Billy Penn's hat atop City Hall. (Some special circumstances do apply, especially if you bring in Amoroso's rolls and/or the proprietors are Philly ex-pats.)

In other words, it's highly unlikely that I would order a steak sandwich even from Wolfgang Puck's Cut steakhouse in LA but I'm even less likely when the restaurant's executive chef offers up something with arugula... and garlic mayo... and cheddar?

It reminds me of what Michael Moore once said when McDonald's tried to fancy up the Filet-O-Fish: "They put lettuce on my Filet-O-Fish... fuckers".
