toast of the town

"life is like a sandwich - the more you add to it, the better it becomes."


hey everybody!

i have a serious case of food brain this week. it could be because i can't resist the wonderland of gourmet delights at every nyc street corner {truffle mac + cheese? yes, please}. or it's because i hail from foodie heaven, aka san francisco, where the most phenomenal meals can be found on a leisurely stroll through our sweet city. and cost $7.

and while the glittering concrete jungle of new york has a bounty of food goodness, i have yet to find an equal to the place that creates one of my favorite meals in the history of favorite meals. 

the grilled cheese sammy. :)

if you happen to be in our charming city by the bay, you'll find a little {ok, ginormous} red and checkered truck - toasty melts - that sells, hands down, the most ridonkulous, oh-my-stars-that-was-so-amazing-i-need-to-have-another-one grilled cheese you've ever had. in your life.


this guy down there is their papa-rizo. it's crazy and your tummy will love you forever for it. and they serve seasonal fruit with every order. {last time i had watermelon!}


and the toasty melts crew doesn't stop there. they have a rotating menu of other heavenly concotions {manchego cheese + honey! mozzarella + basil aoili + prociutto!} that give you the closed-eyes-mmmmmm-so-good effect every time.

so if you're a lover of the grilled cheese, do yourself a kindness and visit our friends at toasty melts. gray skies, zany work or the case of the mondays - it'll be a bright spot of your work day.

now, raise your hand if you love grilled cheese! and because i heart food across the u.s.a, will you share with us your favorite local gem? i can't wait to hear all about them!

Oh that looks so delicious. I wish I could just stroll out and grab myself a toasty melt.

Oh, how I do miss all the food trucks of San Francisco!

Although out here in Raleigh they have grilled pimento cheese sandwiches, which are ooey-gooey delish! Definitely a southern twist on a classic sandwich.

Sweet mother of grilled cheese, YES. Our team goes totally crazy for grilled cheese (we do like the Grilled Cheese Kitchen just blocks from the office), but I think we could make a pilgrimage!

Holy...moly! That looks absolutely delicious! I wish that food trucks were as popular here in Tampa as they are in big cities: they seem so fun!

Oh my God. I can't even look at that sandwich. That looks SO. GOOD.
Our Atlanta local gem is called "Delia's Chicken Sausage Stand." It's amazing for late-night breakfast!

sylvie said...

a chicken sausage stand??? YUM. steph, i think that might be the motivator for a visit to atlanta!

sylvie said...
