We are in a creative writing drought here at Mom’s. Mom’s truck was off for some weekend repairs, and we figured an action picture on the road to the repair shop was riveting enough to post about. Yup, we need your help. If you have any ideas, please shoot us over your thoughts and help inspire us, please! Happy Monday, it’s always a great day when it’s Meatloaf Monday!!!
Happy New Year! What a great day it is out there today, sunny, the snow capped mountains on the North Shore and Mom’s grilled Cheese Truck back on the streets for the first day of 2013. It’s a frosty morning and it will be a cold day today, so it is the perfect day to get yourself down to Mom’s for a hot grilled cheese sandwich, or maybe Mom’s now famous Roasted Tomato Soup topped with basil mascarpone…….or a piping hot large cup of Mom’s homemade chili topped with cheddar! Mmmmmmm, hot comfort foods on a cold January day, sounds like the ideal way to start your 2013 off perfectly. See you today for lunch.
Welcome to your day, a rare snow fall in our normally mild winter city. Grab your scarf, slip your boots on, guys get your galoshes out and brave the snow, sleet and freezing rain for some warm comfort food at Mom’s Grilled Cheese Truck today. The chili will be nice and hot, warm tomato soup is ready and we’ll have all your favorite grilled cheese sandwiches as usual. By noon the forecast is back to our good old winter rain. See you for lunch today
If you really love grilled cheese, how far would you go to prove it? Well, some grilled cheese enthusiasts have actually been inked, yup, grilled cheese tattoos! Can you imagine! Sounds like something Will Farrell would do in a movie. On Google Images there are some great grilled cheese tattoos, not to be confused with Tattoo from Fantasy Island…..da plane, da plane Boss! Remember Hervé Villechaize in the classic TV show? Sadly, Hervé is no longer with us. Thanks to the beauty of YouTube, you can still enjoy his immense talent!
Well, there is no escaping the arrival of winter in Vancouver, as the rains have returned. It’s like someone flipped a switch last week and we went from summer to winter….such is life in the big city. However the good news is, Mom’s has the perfect recipe to chase of the winter blues. Check our Amer, enjoying his double Swiss Provolone. So good he can’t take his eyes off of it. get yourself down to mom’s today for a warm lunch and add a Roasted Tomato Soup topped with basil mascarpone. Mmmmmmmmm, soup is good food!

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.
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!
After a last minute cancellation of a group order for a lot of grilled cheese sandwiches by the folks at Oakridge Mall, Mom’s was left with a lot of wasted food. Instead of tossing it all away and wasting it, we decided to drive by Pigeon Park downtown Vancouver and offer some great Mom’s sandwiches to the homeless people. The sandwiches were a big hit!
