I don’t believe that there is anyone who doesn’t like a grilled cheese sandwich. It’s one of the best comfort foods regardless of how you make it and what you put in it. Some people like a plain, classic white bread with cheese.
Some like it with the crusts removed. Some prefer a heartier multigrain or whole wheat.
Some people like to add toppings galore, and some like to dip their finished sandwich in ketchup or a bowl of hot soup.
Cooked sandwiches made from bread and cheese in some form or another have actually been around since the Ancient Roman times, but the classic processed cheese and sandwich bread version is believed to have begun its popularity during World War II, when American Navy cooks made them by the thousands to feed the troops.
And undoubtedly, the best grilled cheese you’ve probably ever had was one that your mom made for you, until you’ve tried MELT Grilled Cheese.
Regardless of how you like yours made, MELT Grilled Cheese in the Upper Oakville Shopping Centre is the place where all your dreams of a great grilled sandwich will come true. At MELT, you can have your grilled cheese any way you want. Choose from white, multigrain, Asiago red pepper or Sourdough bread, and then choose your free toppings, including pickles, tomatoes, jalapenos, hot banana peppers, onions, lettuce and cucumbers, and the grilled to perfection.
‘The Classic’ offers exactly what you expect, with cheddar and mozzarella cheese that you can have plain or stacked with any of the toppings that you want. One of the favourite items on the menu is the ‘Tattooed Chicken’, featuring crispy or grilled chicken, cheddar, mozzarella, bacon, herbed tomato and MELT’s signature sauce. Vegetarians will love the ‘Grilled Vegetable’ with mozzarella, Asiago, Parmesan, Romano and feta cheese topped with oregano arugula, roasted peppers, marinated artichokes and grilled zucchini.
MELT also serves up a variety of side dishes, including daily hot soup, home-style Mac N’ Cheese, garden of Caesar salad, Texas Slaw, fries, and even a few twist on poutine, such as the ‘Porky Pig’ which combines the traditional fries, gravy and cheese curds with pulled pork and bacon.
