It’s the last work day of summer vacation parents……you made it!! School starts next week! Today’s Friday special, The La Di Da, thinly sliced prosciutto, rosemary infused honey and creamy goat cheese on crusty French bread. In honor of today’s special, Lou broke out the classic T-shirt, love the shirt Lou! While we’d like to think Lou’s “T” is dedicated to us, we can’t be T-shirt plagiarists……it is in memory of Chris Farley from one of his classic moments on Saturday Night Live, check out the video.
To quote the Budweiser guys from that TV commercial……..wassup!! Wassup? The line ups today have been absolutely insane! Our crack team photographer took this pic at noon, shortly after he counted over 100 people ordering and waiting for the grilled cheese. Whatever-is-sup, thanks to everyone for stopping by today and braving the line ups.
Is it possible to have a more decadent cheeeeeeeezzzyyyyy grilled cheese than the Jackson 3? Well yes, it is and thanks for asking. Ironically, today’s special is the Jackson 3. Brandon stopped by last week and had his own creation……the Jackson 8! Ah Yes, the cheesy-gooey-melty warmth of a triple threat…three slices of sourdough with brie, Boursin, and gruyere was multiplied by Brandon with additional cheeses. Well done!
It doesn’t get much better than hanging with friends and family on the beaches of Spanish Banks here in Vancouver on a sunny summer Saturday. That’s what we did this past weekend, in a private event for Robert Luft of Luft Financial. The weather was perfect, the scenery was a slice of heaven and the special edition Robert Luft pulled pork grilled cheese sandwich was a huge hit. In fact, a few boys from the Vancouver Police Motorcycle Drill Team stopped by for lunch as well, we took extra care of the great guys who take care of us. If your company is interested in a private event with Mom’s delicious food, please get in touch.
You gotta love Elmer Fudd, and this is a classic Looney Tunes that we had no idea even existed until today…….it’s the Elmer Fudd Grilled Cheese Song. Who knew Mr. Fudd was even a fan of grilled cheese? The words out now. Happy Friday, come join us for lunch today, its Friday and The La Di Da is the featured sandwich today…..thinly sliced prosciutto, rosemary infused honey and creamy goat cheese on crusty French bread. Elmer Fudd would love it!
How good is the Vancouver food truck scene? It’s world class and judging by the TV show that was filming here this week, we’re getting even more kudos across North America. Food Network Canada’s hit TV show Eat St. began filming this week right here in Vancouver as reported in 24 Hours by Michael Mui, but they aren’t coming to see us here at Mom’s Grilled Cheese Truck. That’s OK, we still love them, they do a great job and are moving the street truck food scene in cities everywhere forward in a very positive way. Keep up the good work David!
The crew was shooting at Fresh Local Wild, Soho Road Naan Kebab and Vij’s Railway Express. They will be back in September shooting at Le Tigre Cuisine and Pig on the Street. Hey, if you want to see Mom’s on Eat Street, let them know by contacting them through the production company Paperny Entertainment.
It’s official, Yelp says that Mom’s Grilled Cheese Truck has the best grilled cheese in Vancouver! Please add your comments to the post if you are a “Yelper” like Joyce who said “how on earth do you make a grilled cheese from all of our childhood memories taste so freaken amazing?????? Mom and this truck can do no wrong“. Ya! We have the best grilled cheese in Vancouver, next it’s Canada and after that…….the best damn grilled cheese sandwich in the world (evil laugh here)!!! Global grilled cheese domination…..but we’re fine with just Vancouver, really. Please come down for lunch today…..it’s Hot Angie Day, oh she’s hot! Hot capicola, hot peppers and havarti on sourdough and the sunshine is out too!
Our diners have spoken out on Urban Spoon, thanks everyone! We really appreciate your words and great reviews. To quote Will Farrell in his role as Frank The Tank in Old School, “keep on, keepin’ on”.
By Jeeven – Great service! Even better food! This is THE BEST grilled cheese sandwich I’ve ever tried. It was nice and crispy and it warns you up. This is the definition of comfort food. The fresh bread makes a huge difference and the Pop Shoppe pop compliments the sandwich perfectly. I’m definitely coming back here!
By krimsoncity – Never had such a good grilled cheese. What a simple dish yet why does it taste so good?? I don’t know what’s happening in Mom’s truck but there must be a secret recipe to it!
By i_say_yes – AMAZING. I would stand in the pouring rain to get a grilled cheese sandwich and cup of tomato soup from mom’s truck. so good. Wish it was parked outside my house.
By CoutureChef – This place is the diamond of quick tasty food. First you are greeted by a very friendly lady who takes you order, the team seem to be working hard but the result is great, the grilled cheese are the best and the soup shots was an amazing idea, big line up at midday to 1 but worth it.
By Noel – Best grilled cheese sandwich I’ve ever had…. Hands down.
By Alex – Food: 10/10. This is a unique idea and tastes great. Nothing like a grilled cheese on sough dough with cheddar and bacon. I highly recommend it. I go here at least once a week and I live 2 hours away. It’s worth every minute of travel. Customer Service: 10/10 The Employees are great. They joke around and interact with you. Half of your experience is just talking to them. If you have not been yet to mom’s grilled cheese truck then you are missing out.
Every day Mom’s Grilled Cheese Truck brings you what many call the best grilled cheese in Canada! We use specialty home make breads, the best quality cheese and everything we serve is top-quality. However, on occasion a scary grilled cheese gets brought to our attention and this week is no different. The folks at Denny’s have another “calorie-busting novelty sandwich”, the Fried Cheese Melt, which is four fried mozzarella sticks with melted American cheese grilled between two slices of sourdough bread. Hey, it’s only a whopping 895 calories. Ay, Caramba! KFC’s Double Down is actually healthier than the Fried Cheese Melt; the infamous bunless sandwich weighs in at 540 calories. The moral to this story……..if you want quality and lots of love in your grilled cheese, get yourself down to Mom’s this week for lunch. See you soon and just in case you were in the mood for the original “Ay, Caramba!!“, enjoy Bart Simpson.
Mom’s Grilled Cheese Truck was set up this past Sunday at The Waldorf for the Yelp and Street Food Vancouver Food Cart Fest. We seemed to have a line up of about 50 people deep all day long and we even ran out of bacon!! Sacrilegious! Blasphemy! I guess that’s a good thing, it means the grilled cheese was selling like hotcakes.
If you didn’t know, Food Cart Fest happens every Sunday till September 2 and it’s free and family-friendly. From week to week, the Food Cart Fest will be complimented by a series of community markets. These weekly events also featured a 19+ beer garden in The Waldorf outdoor tiki beach area, live musical performances, DJs, and other family entertainment. It’s a great Vancouver community event, check it out!
