What Has 4 Wheels, 2 Pieces of Bread, and Lots of Melted Cheese?
If you answered: A Grilled Cheese Sandwich on Wheels, you'd be correct! Yes, Los Angeles, it's coming. Another food truck is gearing up to hit the streets to peddle a familiar food for the socially networked masses. Already reaching out to local foodies via Twitter, the Grilled Cheese Truck says they'll be "oozing through the streets of LA soon," somewhere around four weeks from now. And there's going to be not just Kraft slices between Wonder Bread; they've hinted that they'll "have plenty of great flavors to work with. some staple, some specials. INCLUDING dessert sammys!" More combos: "Grilled Macaroni n cheese w/smoked pork and caramelized onions," "grilled heirloom tomato, mozzarella cheese, fresh basil," "grilled brie w/ prosciutto to smoked cheddar, crispy tater tots & a bacon crust," and "hawaiian bread w/ roasted banana spread/ neutella to goat cheese, vanilla poached peaches w/ almondsonpound cake," (yeah, it's sloppy Twitspeak, but you get the idea).
For those who've yet to determine that food trucks have jumped the shark, looks like the Grilled Cheese Truck-ers will have their hands full feeding the late-night drunkards, foodies, and lunch crowds.
