Cheese + Bread + A Bus = Nom nom nom

Remember when you were little and your mom would make you grilled cheese sandwiches?  Every kid loves cheese and bread.  Of course, aside from those poor kids who were lactose intolerant - I'm just not sure how those guys survived.....

My sister recently told me about a new phenomenon hitting the Portland food truck market.  The Grilled Cheese Grill (  What a phenomenal idea! Even into adulthood - everyone loves a good grilled cheese.  I have to admit though, at first I was a little skeptical - I mean how many ways can you spin cheese and bread? And on top of that, it was clear across town from my sister.

But regardless, we decided to make the trek and check out the grilled cheese guys.  Upon walking up to the spot..... my 4 year old niece immediately stopped and said she was NOT eating there.  You see, the seating at the Grilled Cheese Grill was in an old double decker bus.  Tallie exclaimed that she could not eat in there because the bus might roll away.  Once we showed her that there was no engine, she tentatively agreed to give it a go.  And I'm glad she did!  The food was delicious!  Perhaps even the best grilled cheese sandwich.  Ever.  Seriously.  I've tried to figure out how they made their bread perfectly brown and crunchy - but can't seem to get it just right.  If you're ever in Portland - you MUST check them out. 

Now if only the Atlanta area would jump on this food truck train.....
