Hey, you might even want to start training by visiting Mom’s every day this week to ensure you are ready!
The hard working Shirai took time to step out of Mom’s kitchen to meet her dream man! Another example of a bad online date, he lied about his height and said he had a clean facial complexion! Come on down today for lunch, a nice looking day and a better looking lunch menu!
Hey congratulations, you’ve almost made it through the work week! Thanks to everyone who came by this week for a warm lunch on a these cold but sunny days. Today is Baby Daddy day, the new hit item on our menu. We take tender beef brisket with horseradish mayo, caramelized onions and Havarti cheese on potato bread and grill it to perfection. See you for lunch today!!
Just a heads up, Mom’s Grilled Cheese Truck is open on Saturday, Sunday and Monday for the BC Family Day Holiday, from 12:00 to 5:00 PM. However, on Tuesday the 11th, we will be closed. Mom’s gotta do, what Mom’s gotta do.
Today’s special, Sharai will offer a free smile to every customer that stops by Mom’s Grilled Cheese Truck! Sharai is the butter on our bread! She is the queen of cash! Tell her what a great job she’s doing. It’s the super Sharai smile day!
Nothing but sunshine today!! It’s the perfect day for an urban picnic, just like Calvin and Dan when they stopped by Mom’s earlier this week. Thanks guys, and the forecast this weekend offers nothing but sunshine as well. We are open Saturday and Sunday, so get yourself down here, and soak up some sun sunshine and grilled cheese! Happy Friday, you made it
Kids love Mom’s Grilled Cheese. This three year old took the bus himself just for a taste of the best grilled cheese in Canada! Well, not really, but the smile says it all, great picture, thanks for sharing…..and it’s Meatloaf Monday today!!
Well how cool is this, Jamie Oliver Magazine has mentioned Mom’s Grilled Cheese Truck in the most recent UK edition of his Jamie Magazine and also included a nice picture. Yo, thanks Jamie! Sorry about the picture of the picture, it’s all we had
For those of you who are old enough to remember, Mom’s Grilled Cheese Truck is serving as part of our drink menu…..pop from The Pop Shoppe! Ya! Growing up, The Pop Shoppe was it! This was the great pop experience as a kid. Once a week, we would go to The Pop Shoppe and pick our own pop flavours for the week. We’d bring it home in that red plastic carry case, and return the empties in it as well. Great flavour like Cola, Cream Soda, Root Beer, Grape, Orange and Black Cherry. Ya gotta love the stubby style bottle too, classic stuff. In creating Mom’s unique menu from both the food and beverage perspective, we wanted to be unique and offer a different experience to our customers. Where in downtown Vancouver can you go for a gourmet grilled cheese lunch and kick it old school with your favourite Pop Shoppe drink? Nowhere, except mom’s Grilled Cheese Truck! The Pop Shoppe was a soft drink retailer originating in 1969 in London, Ontario, Mom’s home town. They sold pop through franchised outlets and its own stores in refillable bottles in red 24-cartons. Within three years, the company grew within the province to over 500 stores, and entered the United States in the following three years. Eventually, Pop Shoppe was selling 30 different flavours of pop throughout Canada and 12 American states. National Hockey League veteran Eddie Shack was the predominant spokesman for the brand. In the early 1980s sales slowed, largely blamed on competition from private label grocery store soft drink brands. The original company ceased operations in 1983 and its trademarks expired in 1993. It was re-established in 2004.
Mmmmmm, a melty gooey delight on New Years Day? Yup, we are open for business as usual. See you tomorrow and have a safe night, don’t drink and drive.
