PRESS RELEASE. For immediate release. June 13, 2013, Vancouver, BC, Canada. Breaking News – Today, the sun is out in Vancouver. While speculation was leaning towards scattered showers across the Lower Mainland, a bloody miracle has occurred and we are experiencing sunshine in the middle of June. The great weather is expected to continue over the next few days, be sure to visit Mom’s Grilled Cheese Truck for lunch today and Friday….and on the weekend too when it will be sunny with temps in the +25 area.
It was Meatloaf Monday as usual this week at Mom’s, on Monday in case you didn’t catch on, and Chris did it! He sauntered up to the order counter at Mom’s, laid down his hard earned lunch money and went deep into the most famous of all Mom’s grilled cheese sandwiches…..the meatloaf. With extra love and care, Mom created the mother of all grilled cheese sandwiches and Chris put it all down. In case you were wondering about the phrase “He Came, He Saw, He Conquered”….it was apparently spoken by Julius Caesar after he suppressed a revolt in Thrace, which is where he later invented the Ceaser salad.
We have the best wingman in Vancouver here at Mom’s Grilled Cheese Truck, and he is available every Friday…and his name isn’t Goose. If you are sick of a wingman who is all talk, no results….a wingman who simply can’t help close the deal, get yourself to Mom’s tomorrow or every Friday as the new Friday special is The Wingman! We’ve taken buffalo wings meat, topped with hot sauce, a sprinkle of diced celery, mozzarella and havarti all on a crusty butter grilled French loaf. See you tomorrow.
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.
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!
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!
The last time you were at Mom’s for lunch, you probably noticed those incredible chips that all our grilled cheese sandwiches come with. You may even have wondered……who makes these incredible chips? Well, today you get a little lesson on one of Mom’s supply partners, Hardbite Chips.
For Wes Heppell and Pete Schouten, potato farming has been in their family’s since 1920. Today, Hardbite Chips, not only uses the best potatoes and limited ingredients in their Maple Ridge BC facility, but they also make a chip that isn’t horrible for you! Yay!
