The Grilled Cheese Truck
Wasn’t a big fan of this place in the past. Grilled cheese sandwiches marked up and served out of a truck? Recipe for disaster. But the Grilled Cheese Truck continues to be one of the most acclaimed and popular food trucks in the city. So when it came by my work a few weeks ago, I gave it another shot (despite the long line). Ordered their signature Cheesy Mac and Rib grilled cheese sandwich, which has mac and cheese with sharp cheddar, BBQ pork, and caramelized onions. Unlike many other trucks that serve stuff you can easily make at home, at least it seems like a lot of care went into the sandwiches here, despite their simple appearance. Bread well-grilled, mac and cheese authentically cheesy, BBQ pork cooked pretty well, and caramelized onions soft and sweet – all of these complementary components going into a heavy and hearty sandwich. Nothing amazing really, but satisfying to the simple boy in me.
