A Delicious First Taste of Grilled Cheese from Street-Food Vendor Toasty Melts
J. Birdsall The Original boasts a gooey three-cheese blend. J. Birdsall Heavy saute pans serve as grill lids.
SFoodie also sampled the ABC Melt ($4), a mashup of white cheddar, bacon, and apple slices on sourdough. It had a smoky deliciousness, with slices of skin-on Galas cut as thin as a Visa card -- perfect, since they added acidity and a blur of sweetness without stepping on the bacon.
The Strawberry SweetMess ($4), a dessert sandwich, combined Nutella, vanilla-laced cream cheese, and strawberry slices between the same dense and fluffy white bread that brackets the Original.
Toasty Melts is planning its official launch at the street-food party organized by Little Skillet in Ritch Street this Friday night.
