We love the variety of food trucks that you can find here in Fairfield County. You’ve got trucks that focus on grilled cheese, meatball subs, pierogies, tacos, lobster rolls, burgers, fries, arepas, exotic foods . . . and now you can devour some brunch specialties. Oh hell yes, you heard right! The Brunch Box launched just four weeks ago in Stamford and has met with major success so far. In fact, they were so successful this weekend, that they sold out of their signature Portuguese Muffins that they get shipped especially for them from MA.

Burger month?  Pssshh, what Bounty Food Truck and its three owners have in store for you will make every single day burger day and have you quivering, falling to your knees in praise of the burger gods.  This, all from a brand new food truck that’s just entered into its first full-time week traveling around Westport.  The owners, James Edkins, Chris Vacca, and Christiaan Rizy, all from the Westport/Wilton area, are ready to make your mornings, days, and maybe even nights a little better.

The Chef:  Chris Vacca

Like any great food truck, it all starts with a talented chef who’s manning the grill, coming up with great menu choices, and pumps out awesome food quickly.  And, you could say Chef Chris Vacca has been around the kitchen a bit…22 years, actually.  Not only is he a graduate of the CIA, he has also traveled the world, and worked in culinary meccas like NYC (Park Avenue Cafe, Le Madri, Il Toscanaccio), Napa (Cantinetta Piero), Italy (Antica Trattoria San Lorenzo), and other European spots like Switzerland (Giradet), and he also owns Trevi Trattoria in Wantagh, NY.  He has worked at Michelin-starred restaurants and also has local connections, recently consulting at Zaza in Scarsdale and 323 Restaurant in Westport.  By his side are James Edkins and Christiaan Rizy who help run the food truck, offer up guidance, resources, business planning, organization, and help in growing the food truck into an even more successful business.  Bounty Food Truck all began because they loved seeing the mobile food truck scene thriving in NY and thought, hey, we can do that.  And do that they are…

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…
