I wish we had a grilled cheese truck in New York.
We have so many types of trucks that we love, but no grilled cheese truck. And sometimes I just want a really good grilled cheese sandwich for lunch. The Grilled Cheese Truck in LA proves that it can be done. So why don't we have one?
One year ago today (I'm enjoying this flashback series, which I decided to do on a whim), we decided to do a food truck crawl for lunch. Our first stop was for grilled cheese. Although we knew we wanted to split one sandwich, who knew it was going to be so hard to choose?
We could get a plain grilled cheese sandwich. Or the cheesy mac melt. Grilled cheese and macaroni and cheese together? Sounds delicious! But I absolutely love caprese so that sounded good too. And then there was the harvest melt which sounded like a great combination (butternut squash, yum). What to choose? Such a dilemma. (The menu's changed a little bit since we were there, but it all still sounds good.)
Here's A with our lunch (and can I just mention how gorgeous that day was, as we prepare for snow showers?):
First, we got tater tots:
You can't really see it in the photo with A, but he's holding a little cup of sriracha ketchup that he mixed up himself in the truck's condiment section for our tater tots. Yum. Love tater tots.
And what sandwich did we end up getting?
The cheesy mac melt! In the end, the combination of mac and cheese and grilled cheese together just sounded perfect. And it was so cheesy good. Now that I'm writing this post, even though it's 2:30 am, I could really go for a grilled cheese.
