I haven’t been writing on my blog as often as I’d like to be. Not for any particular reason; just been busy, uninspired…who knows. This is all before I bit into an ooey-gooey grilled cheese from Mobile Meltdown for the first time and was immediately motivated to get home and inform all of my followers of the amazingness that they may be missing out on.
Here’s the deal: Mobile Meltdown is a food truck serving a variety of grilled cheeses, soups and tots that scream comfort food. I just happened to be craving a Sunday afternoon beer at Community Tap on the same day that Mobile Meltdown was serving. Let me tell you, after a hard workout, a cold beer and grilled cheese is pretty phenomenal.
My friend and I shared the Brie & Bacon and Spicy Pig grilled cheeses and an order of the soft tots. After every single bite, the phrase “omg this is incredible” followed. The Brie & Bacon grilled cheese is served on a freshly baked butter croissant and consists of double cream Brie, crispy bacon and a drizzle of raspberry reduction glaze. It’s that quintessential sweet and savory combo that can’t be beat. Plus it’s served on a croissant, so obviously it’s gonna be tasty.
The bite I will crave again and again is the Spicy Pig served on freshly baked (and very buttery, and perfect) bread with hot coppocola ham, a blend of manchego and jarlsberg cheeses, diced jalapenos and a drizzle of balsamic reduction glaze. So, you still get that balance of sweet and savory, but the addition of the jalapenos sold me.
And then there’s the Soft Tots. What sets these tots apart from the rest? They are essentially deep fried mashed potatoes, which creates an extra crispy exterior and super creamy, soft center. Then, Mobile Meltdown takes decadence to a whole other level and serves a side of rosemary aioli for your dipping pleasure.
It’s rare that I find a place that excites me as much as this unassuming food truck did. I urge all of you to follow them on social media to find out where they will be next, and don’t waste any time checking them out!
