Gojjo is an Ethiopian sports bar in West Philly and aside from having the classic wings and mozzarella sticks that you expect when you walk into a bar to watch a game, you can also get more traditional Ethiopian dishes. And if you’re in the mood for a cheesesteak, Gojjo has one that’s worth your time. It’s a little different than the one you’re probably used to with cheese whiz and boiled meat, but in a very good way. The beef in this one is marinated in some berbere spices, and it’s one of the better alternative versions we’ve tried.
