Vancouver: Mom's Grilled Cheese Truck

bitchin kitchen
:Streets of Vancouver - Sunday afternoon at Robson + Howe:

I got there just as they were taking the last of their orders. They make a mean grilled cheese - nice flaptop grill, buttery, cheesey.  But don't go on a weekend.

Monday to Friday they have daily specials of handcrafted grilled cheeses for about $9. Weekends they have mom's classic which comes to about $8 (I realize the Urbanspoon menu says $5.50, which begs the statement - holy jacked up prices). Mom's classic is just cheese, anything else is more $. So it makes sense to stick to the specials - they're interesting and you get value.

Mom's classic is good. Pick your bread (white, sourdough, multigrain, marbled rye), your cheese (cheddar, havarti, pepperjack, provolone, swiss):

They don't skimp on the cheese - ooey, gooey, bountiful goodness. But it's still more than I would pay for a truck grilled cheese.

Although surprise, as I picked up my sandwich, there it was, potato chips. 

Chips, grilled cheese and a really good pickle.  I'm semi-sold.  It's the price.  Truck food should be cheaper.
