Meals on Wheels
As you know from reading this blog, I love sandwiches.
What I love even more is when a sandwich is delivered to me at my doorstep.
Enter, The Melt.
The other week here at my day job, we were given lunch from The Melt truck, which just so happens to be a tech-lover's dream as well.
In the front door of the truck sits a screen showing you the process of each sandwich ordered. It's a fun thing to watch, but also hard to tell which sandwich is yours as they weren't taking names on the day that we had our lunch.
Which lead to confusion later as sandwiches were being handed out to the wrong people.
Ah well, but was the sandwich delicious?
I ordered the Italian Job combo which included a Fontina and Provolone grilled cheese with a side of chips, a pickle and Italian sausage soup.
Oh, and of course I added bacon to the sandwich. Like that wasn't going to happen.
The sandwich itself had the perfect amount of cheese. Very melty, with the complementary flavors of Provolone and Fontina, but not too much that that I was choking on the sandwich with each bite.
The bacon added a bit of crispness along with the grilled bread to complement the softer insides.
Also, the sandwich was grilled after being covered in garlic and red pepper flakes giving it a nice dose of spice to the mix.
Overall, the sandwich was delicious and well made without overdoing any of its ingredients. My main complaint is just the process of getting sandwiches to customers, which in a large group it became quickly apparent that without taking names the order delivery became a bit confusing.
Not something that should keep you away, but one of the very few ways in which the truck service could improve.
Until next week, Dear Readers!
