Melt Mobile Food Truck Brings Gourmet Grilled Cheese to Stamford, Connecticut

12 Mar

The New Melt Mobile Menu, Starting 5/7/12

Update:  Guess who will be on the new Bobby Flay show, Three Days to Open starting July 20 at 10 pm?  Yup, details here about Melt Mobile working with Bobby Flay and the surprise cheese visit.  

Last April 1st we told you all about food trucks in Fairfield County, but they were all just cruel April Fool’s jokes.  Po’ Po’ Porridge…did you really think this was actually one?  Weirdos.  Well, Melt Mobile is no joke and is now open.

The original menu had 12 gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches, but they’ve tightened things up and are now featuring 8 sandwiches.  Now, these aren’t any old ordinary boring grilled cheese sandwiches.  These are re-donk-ulous.  Plus, they’ve got a killer tomato soup that rocked our worlds.  You’ll also be able to build your own sandwich with Applewood smoked bacon, vine-ripened tomatoes, caramelized onions, and sautéed wild mushrooms.  When Bobby Flay rolled into town we had all the add-ins and it was an amazing experience.  Find Melt Mobile at Veterans Park/Landmark Square on Atlantic Street, across from Old Town Hall.  Keep up to date with their FB page and you also might learn about daily specials and even if you can see them during a Friday or Saturday night.  Yup.  That’s why you’ve gotta check them out.

So, again, the sandwiches look really awesome and here are some of our favorites:

The Meatball 3 Cheese Squeeze:  Diana’s meatballs, basil marinara, Parmesan/Romano blend, ricotta, and mozzarella on grilled ciabatta.

The Fluffernutter:  creamy peanut butter, melted bittersweet Belgian chocolate, marshmallow fluff, and caramelized bananas on crunch Terra Nova bread sprinkled with powdered sugar.

The Pork-U-Pine:  Vermont cheddar, bbq pulled pork, caramelized onions, and sliced dill pickles on buttery grilled country white bread.

***

Please note they donate 2% of their proceeds to Umbrella Club of Stamford, an organization that helps community families and children in need.

So, which sandwich are you going to try first?  Confess your love…

      We were talking with James from CTbites yesterday and how they’d make a KILLING if they did some late nights and captured the bar crowds :) This is really perfect for people that work in Stamford and nearby. You’ll get there eventually! :)

    this is bad news for my cholesterol!
    mmmmmmm!
    Food trucks have always had a tough time in Stamford because the restaurants (who are paying outrageous rents have complained very loudly)…i love food trucks and miss some that i used to see on Atlantic (a hot dog truck with a red onion sauce to die for was one).

      Ah, a grilled cheese sandwich here or there will be okay for you, Señor Whitemist! ;) We saw a crepe food truck in Fairfield today, so it’s exciting to see this gourmet grilled cheese one! :) We really wish them lots of success, they are nice people and who doesn’t love grilled cheese? :) What was the name of the hot dog truck?

    Just wanted to say thanks again for giving What’s on the Menu? a shout-out. Hopefully, Stamford will be getting more food trucks! I’m dedicated to the El Charrito taco truck. With the coming of MeltMobile, it seems that maybe, just maybe, Stamford will join other towns and feed our munchies!! (would LOVE to see hot dog trucks downtown at bar-closing time) Thanks again guys!!! :)

      The trick is to just follow lots of good people on Twitter and FB. Eventually something comes out or is shared. Sometimes, though, we don’t catch it and someone else does, so you just congratulate them. :)
