Suspend all thoughts about calories and fat content and savor the melted cheese heaven located at the corner of Howe and Robson in downtown Vancouver. With a variety of cheese and toppings and daily specials, this gourmet grilled-cheese sandwich merchant has become one of the most successful and busiest food trucks in town.
Sure, you think. It’s just grilled cheese. Until you order one…and then before you is a creation of melted perfection with more cheese than you’d dare ever use at home. Oven baked, then grilled, there are a variety of cheeses, meats, and artisan breads with various filling combinations on the menu.
I did as I was told and arrived hungry – these are not small grilled cheese sandwiches. I was drawn to the Hot Angie – with spicy cappicolla, delightfully garlicy red aioli, with more mozzarella and Havarti than I could dream of on perfect large slices of French bread. It was surprisingly not terribly greasy, and the taste – pure and divine comfort in a sandwich.
Mom’s offers up vegetarian and vegan options as well, which is fabulous for everyone. And everyone needs to have a Mom’s grilled cheese. You may not be able to skip and jump after eating (and yes…I did finish my sandwich) but you’ll be feeling pure melted cheesy and satisfied.
Oh…and don’t forget your bills – cash only, people!
