Great lunch crowd today and the weather sure helped too! As soon as we lifted up our doors, the good folks at Vancouver Foodie Tours stopped by with a group including visitors from San Francisco, Austria and the UK. We snuck a picture of them. This great little company offers the world’s best food truck tour, easily one of the most mind-blowing lunch experiences you’ll ever have….and it includes a stop at Mom’s Grilled Cheese Truck (applause)! Enjoy amazing Vancouver street food characterized by local, organic, good-for-you-decadence and learn about the making of Vancouver’s popular food truck landscape. Be introduced to the culinary talents behind the scenes, learn to appreciate street food in a new light, and be inspired to continue exploring Vancouver’s fascinating culinary tourism scene long after the adventure ends.
Yes, you read it right, Mom’s Grilled Cheese Truck is having a grilled cheese eating contest at 12:00 on Friday October 4, 2013 and the grand prize is free grilled cheese for one year!

Look at this weather, it’s brilliant! We are on our 26th straight day of Mother Nature’s golden sunshine and we are loving it! More importantly, Mom’s Grandmother is celebrating her 90th birthday today, happy birthday Big-G! We are in such a good mood at Mom’s, we are giving away free head locks this week. Yup, it’s true. As a thank you to all our loyal customers and those of you who are stopping buy for the first time, just ask Mom for a free head lock…..because it is off menu. Feel the iron-like grip of Mom’s strong pipe wrapped around your next as the tension and hold tighten……making you sweat with fear. This is where you say nice things about Mom and her grilled cheese, right?
In case you missed it, this past weekend was 420 Vancouver. Mom’s grilled Cheese Truck was there and let me tell you……there were some serious munchies going on! LOL. We sold out of almost everything on the tuck. It was an epic day. Makes you wonder about legalization, but that’s another topic. If you didn’t know, 420 is the world recognized international day of celebration for the planet’s estimated 250,000,000 members of the cannabis culture. There was live music by Kitty In The City, The Ponderosas and many more. An estimated 35,000 people turned out for the event, and about 20,000 of them chowed down grilled cheese! Pretty impressive event. If you are curious, feel free to reach out to Event Coordinator Jodie Emery at firstname.lastname@example.org. Dude, where’s my car?
We were on blogging vacation, but we’re back!! OK, some quick housekeeping items: Mom’s is now open 7 days a week, look for us at our usual spot located on the corner of Robson & Howe by the Vancouver Art Gallery. We are also open in the evenings too, from 6 through 9PM. Get yourself down here for a warm spring-day lunch visit today, see you soon!
Yes, it is Meatloaf Monday, a hearty slice of homemade meatloaf surrounded by melted mozzarella and marinara sauce on crusty French bread. This is probably Mom’s most famous grilled cheese and offers the best filler for your lunch time hunger on a cold and wet Monday. Business and school is back to normal today, so we look forward to seeing you for a nice warm lunch, some comfort food like Mom used to make..
Mom’s big give away last Friday was a big success except for one problem…..our winner has not surfaced. Babu, where are you? People who win the lottery sometimes take some time to contemplate life and what their next steps will be. However, grilled cheese isn’t exactly a life changer, is it? Somnath (a.k.a. Babu), come on down and start your free grilled cheese sandwiches for a year. We’ve left you a voice mail as well. Babu, where are you?
