Melty, Girthy Goodness From the Say Cheese Truck
Say Cheese is now in its second semester of serving their grilled cheeses from their truck on the Temple campus (and LOVE park on most Fridays). On the particular day I visited, the Temple art students had shown their love by crochet-bombing the truck with a color crochet bib. And if college students give the grilled cheese the seal of approval, they must be doing something right.
Though the meatball sandwich caught my eye and I know Brian loved the Wild Bill, I was persuaded to make my own. This meant swiss and cooper sharp cheese, with tomato, fried onions, bacon and the off menu garlic mayo all on the “hand-formed” rustic Italian bread ($6).
This was no classic Philly long roll. What my sandwich lacked in length, it made up for in girth. The truck adds a 3rd slice of bread inside, bulking it up. I didn’t think I needed it, but I ended up enjoying the extra surface for cheese to cling to. What I like about this sandwich most was that the gooey cheese was not overshadowed by the rest of my choices, as was the case in my eggplant grilled cheese from the nearby Cheese Busz. I am going to go ahead and pat myself on the back because the garlic mayo, onions, tomato, and bacon were the perfect combo with my 2 cheeses and toasted bread. They should probably name this sandwich after me.
This would be Alan of the Say Cheese truck “saying cheese” while lounging in their lawn bean bag chairs.
And I realized I couldn’t find their menu anywhere on the internet so, you’re welcome for this:
THE + (What somebody who likes this place would say)
- Gooey grilled cheese is NEVER bad
- The menu gives you just the right amount of choices to make your own perfect grilled cheese (or choose mine)
THE – (What somebody who doesn’t like this place would say)
- I refuse to pay over $3.50 for a grilled cheese
- I can’t digest lactose
