The Grilled Cheese Truck – Long Lines, But I Got “Mines”

by Franklin on October 8, 2011

Who doesn’t like a grilled cheese sandwich?  It is a childhood standard meal.  I always think of those Kraft cheese commercials where they split open a grilled cheese sandwich, and all that gooey cheese starts stretching out.  Man, I love that commercial.  The cheese has to be the star of a grilled cheese.  Though they do have regular grilled cheese sandwiches, the ones I ordered weren’t ordinary at all. The Grilled Cheese Truck uses cheese, and they use the good stuff from Tillamook.  I don’t really know if they are a partner or they just use exclusively that brand, but the cheese is top notch.  You can check out some of their recipes there too.

What’s better than grilled cheese that mac and cheese?  The cheesy mac and rib, undoubtedly one of their most famous sandwiches, had macaroni and cheese made with sharp cheddar, bbq pork, and caramelized onions. Surprisingly, the bbq pork was the star.  It wasn’t dry or bland.  The the consistency was mush on mush, the mac and cheese was cheesy and delicious.  It was a solid sandwich.

The brie melt was probably my favorite.  It had bacon and fig paste on a peppercorn potato bread.  Aside from the bacon, the best part was the almonds inside.  It gave it that texture I was craving.  The creamy taste of the brie went well with the bacon, and the fig paste gave it that sweetness. It was a perfect sweet and savory combination.  This one wasn’t your typical grilled cheese, that’s why I liked it.

One of their popular sandwiches is the pepperbelly melt on habanero bread.  It has chili inside with a mix of salsa.  The kicker was the crushed Fritos corn chips inside. Though the chips were soggy and got lost inside the sandwich, the taste was bold and spicy.  Intense and delicious.

All these delicious sandwiches were accompanied by some tater tots.  Surprisingly, the tater tots were nice and crispy.  They were especially delicious dipping them in the cheese sauce.  Sandwiches and tater tots are an amazing combination. It took me back to elementary school days in the cafeteria.

This is an awesome food truck.  The lines get really long.  If you notice the pictures, the sun is out while I was waiting in line, and the sun had set when I got my sandwich. I remember back at the Santa Anita Food Truck Fest, the lines were the longest I have ever seen, and they were sold out.  I don’t know how that happened, but it did.  This time, I was smart.  I follow them on twitter, and lucky for me, they were in my neck of the woods one evening.  The line was still long, but manageable.  They are one of the top gourmet food trucks in Los Angeles, and I finally got mine.
