Beck’s Cajun Wins Philadelphia Magazine’s Best of Philly

The Train Wreck

PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 1, 2011 – Shrimp po’ boys, muffuletta and a culinary collision called a Train Wreck are just a few of the sandwiches at Beck’s Cajun Café that were named “Best of Philly” by Philadelphia Magazine. Beck’s won in the Best Sandwiches category for restaurants at Philadelphia’s Reading Terminal Market.

“We are thrilled by this recognition and the many congratulations that we have received from customers and friends,” said Chef and Owner Bill Beck.

Opened in October 2009, Beck’s Cajun Café offers traditional tastes of New Orleans and Southern Louisiana. Some of Beck’ signature items include po’ boys, jambalaya, gumbo, blackened chicken and bread pudding.

However, one of its most popular items, the Train Wreck, is closer to a Philly favorite, the cheese steak.

 “The Train Wreck is what we affectionately say is what a cheese steak wants to be when it grows up,” said Beck. “In addition to steak, it has andouille, salami, caramelized onion and Creole mayo on French bread, seasoned with our blend of Cajun spices called Devil Dust, for a more complex and satisfying flavor.

Beck’s also makes and sells a unique blend of Cajun spices and condiments called Beck’s Kitchen Pantry. These include Devil Dust a spicy blend for chicken and seafood, Angel Dust and Rub-a-Dub Steak Rub, as well as Olive Spread and Creole Mayo.

Chef Bill Beck’s culinary career and lifelong love of good food began nearly 25 years ago in his hometown of Philadelphia. A former restaurateur in Center City, he has earned four “Best of Philly” awards and has been twice featured at Manhattan’s world-famous James Beard House.
