Adventures in Food: The Grilled Cheese Truck!  
Thanks to a suggestion from Mark, we decided to spend the day today tracking down the infamous LA Grilled Cheese Truck which was supposed to be located at the Brentwood Country Mart from noon to 2pm today.

We got there with lots of time to spare and was shocked by the LONG line that had already formed! We stood in line for about 1/2 hr and eventually was able to order our precious grilled cheese sandwiches. I ordered the Cheesy Mac Melt (which is actually a grilled cheese sandwich with mac & cheese & cheddar) -- SOO good! I also ordered a Dessert Sandwich (which is a grilled sandwich with roasted banana puree, nutella, and marshmellow).

But instead of me explaining them, I'd rather post pictures!!

What a great suggestion by Mark (who found out about the truck on Twitter! :)

With my 2 sandwiches after nearly an hour of standing in line.

My Cheesy Mac Melt (which has mac & cheese with cheddar!) SOOOOO good!

Tater Tots... which were SO delicious!!

It was an EXCELLENT combination! :)

The Dessert Sandwich - roasted banana puree, nutella, and marshmellows. YUM!!

So much more amazing food on this trip, but this post was a MUST! If you're in the LA area, go and seek out the Grilled Cheese Truck! It's amazing and they are such nice people! :)

LOL, this sounds like cult. The cult of grilled cheese.

Haha!! It almost is - you should've seen the amount of people willing to stand in the hot sun for hrs just to get their order in!! People were taking pictures, Tweeting stuff, while standing in line... NUTS! But, SO good! :)

It was SO amazing, Andrea!! We want to go back, but it seems like it's an all-day affair (the FINDING it, the standing in line, etc...) I don't hink we'll have enough time for the rest of this trip... which is sad. :( Best grilled cheese I've ever had!

Haha!! I did promise some food pictures! ;) It was the single BEST thing I've eaten so far on this trip! Can you imagine? Something as simple as a grilled cheese sandwich! :D

Mmm, carbs and cheese.

(and I'm eating apples and peanut butter for dinner because I didn't go to the grocery store today. Those pictures look so incredibly good.)

It was SOOOO good! I'm a huge fan of grilled cheese to begin with, but... oh my! That sandwich was heavenly! Mark & I are actually debating whether we want to try to go back on Monday (they didn't have tomato soup when we went and what's a grilled cheese without tomato soup?)

It was SO delicious!! In fact, Mark & I are going to try to find the truck one last time before we head home on Tuesday! :D I think it's going to be somewhere near Wilshire and that's on our way to the airport! :D
