If you have been by Mom’s Grilled Cheese truck lately for lunch, like the good folks at TELUS are on a regular basis (thank you TELUS), you’ve probably noticed the rather large construction site behind us and across the road. Good news ladies, make way for the opening of the Nordstrom department store! Yah, shoe shopping! The high-profile intersection where Mom’s is very day, will be even more prestigious when Nordstrom opens up in 2015. Just think, shop til you drop, then across the road to actually drop and have lunch at Mom’s. It’s a dream day. The original building was opened in 1973 and referred to affectionately as the great white urinal…..thank you Nordstrom for saving the day.
Vancitybuzz.com had a great post a while ago asking who has the best grilled cheese in Vancouver, and we wanted to share it with you. So, directly from the book of plagiarism, here is some fun stuff about Mom’s Grilled Cheese Truck and Taser’s (who we love)….but it really isn’t plagiarism because we are crediting Vancitybuzz.com, using “quotation marks” like Austin Powers does and linking directly to the article and their landing page, right…….
“The ultimate icons of cheesy goodness can be prepared for both the simplest palette or the most adventurous sandwich connoisseur and while most everyone knows how to make their own grilled cheese sandwich, not everyone carries around a sandwich press. Luckily, Vancouver has two GC specific food carts so it’s possible to have your favourite lunchtime sandwich even when you aren’t in your kitchen. Let’s take a closer look at Mom’s and Taser’s, Vancouver’s dynamic grilled cheese duo. Read more here
The Vancouver Food Cart Fest is back baby!! However this year it’s changed location, to 215 West 1st Avenue which is located south east of the Cambie Street Bridge, which opened in 1985 but was originally named the Connaught Bridge in 1912.Bet you didn’t know that! Mix in all of Vancouver’s favorite street food carts, markets, live music, kids stuff, DJs, and more cool stuff and you’ve got what Mom’s niece and nephew would say is “way more better”. The Food Cart Fest runs every Sunday from 12 to 5 PM until September 22, which is a big birthday in Mom’s family. Hey, it’s one of the cheapest things you can do in Vancouver too, only $2 admission, kids 13 and under are gratis. See you this Sunday!
If by chance you have the kids with you this week and are doing a staycation, the weather looks great….. so do lunch out at Mom’s! It’s a great way to keep the kids busy and help get you through the day with your sanity! Imagine how pumped up the kids will be when you tell them they can make their own custom grilled cheese. If they are anything like Mom’s niece and nephew…..they’ll probably go with, cheese. Yup, just cheese. Kids do like it simple. Let’s call them traditionalists. The kids also love our selection of Pop Shoppe pops, old school pop you can tell them. Try the Rootbeer Float!!!! The kids will love our deserts……like the Sweet Little Vals, so get down here for lunch today with the kids in the sunshine!
It’s Friday, you made it!!! The work week is almost over, time for a some grilled cheese lunch today at Mom’s. Believe it or not, there is a rock band called Grilled Cheese. You can catch them “rocking out” to Foxy Lady, originally by Jimi Hendrix. Keep your day job boys! Happy weekend!
Thank you very much to the boys who came out from the great city of Fort St. John last week. They ate until their hearts were content and their arteries were partially clogged! If you didn’t know, Fort St. John is a city in northeastern British Columbia with about 18,000 residents located at Mile 47 along the Alaska Highway. Originally established in 1794, as a trading post, Fort St. John is the oldest European-established settlement in present-day British Columbia. Thanks again guys!!
We unveiled the new summer menu on the weekend as well, check in this week for a daily feature on what the new menu is all about and get down here for lunch to enjoy some sun shine! It’s meatloaf Monday!!!
