The Ms. Cheezious grilled cheese truck debuts this week, flanked with
a pinup girl logo. The menu showcases the classic comfort food, without veering
into overwrought combinations. They'll offer a crab salad and cheddar melt, bacon and blue cheese on
sourdough, an apple and havarti on multi-grain, and a ricotta and orange
marmalade on Texas
toast, among other things.
You can also custom build your own grilled cheese made with your
choice of eight cheeses and a selection of other toppings like tomatoes and
bacon. Combine it with sides like tomato
soup, gravy, chili, or sweet potato fries, and you have a meal.
Co-owners Brian and Fatima Mullins know that when it comes
to grilled cheese, sometimes basic is the best. In some of their pre-debut tastings, American cheese on white bread was consistently
rated most popular by their guinea pigs.
For those of us who love to eat cheese (and for the USDA's
Dairy Management Dept), these are golden days. American demand for cheese is off the charts,
according to industry experts. Thus, Miami now has a second
cheese-based food truck.
We still don't have any mac and cheese trucks, but I won't
to find out their exact locations during Art Basel.
