After weeks of drool-worthy anticipation, it's official: The Grilled Cheese Truck gets rolling tomorrow night at The Brig in Venice. The announcement came down overnight via Twitter: "Well, THE WAIT IS OVER AND IT'S TIME TO MELT! Who's busy Tuesday evening? Meet us on the westside....? CheesyMac&Rib w/ some tots anyone?" Of course, in typical 140-character's worth fashion, the details have been rolling out bit(e) by bit(e): "Here's the deal.World famous Brig to host our unveiling Tuesday night @830 til 1015 so we leave and make room for Kogi @1030. Short & sweet."

Short indeed, but not just sweet (like a dessert melt of "marshmallows, Nutella and bananas" as the LAT noted during their Pre-Melt preview event)'s all about the savory. Chef Dave Danhi is ready to serve up all sorts of deliciously cheesy combinations; "Caprese Melt, Cheesy Mac & Rib Melt, Roasted Butternut Squash Melt" to name a few of the tempting tastes.

Good luck on the launch, Grilled Cheese Truck, and welcome to the fleet of food trucks roaming the streets. Want to catch some of the hot melted goodness? Follow them on Twitter to see where they'll stop next!
