One cold day in late February, John picked me up from the office for lunch and as usual we were undecided about a place to eat. Then he remembered the GourMelt Grilled Cheese Truck and lucky for us, the food truck was parked nearby. I once heard an interview on the radio with (I believe was) one of the owners discussing the challenges of the food truck industry in Reno/Washoe County and since then I have been wanting to try their gourmet grilled sandwiches.
'Like' them on Facebook, they announce where lunch will be parked).
If I could fit it all of the ooey gooey sandwiches in my stomach, I would have tried each and every one of their melts but since I wouldn't be able to, I narrowed my choices from the menu down to the Italian (mozzarella cheese, Italian sausage, grilled onions, roasted red peppers, and grilled mushrooms on sourdough bread with a garlic Parmesan crust). Each grilled cheese sandwich comes with a choice of garlic Parmesan fries or homemade tomato soup (or you can substitute sweet potato fries for $1.00 more).
With our hot lunches tucked in a brown paper bag we sat in the car and ate at one of the nearby parks in downtown Reno and enjoyed our grilled cheese sandwiches. It was the perfect meal for a cold day.
Reno has Food Truck Friday's where locals and tourists can gather downtown on Friday evenings from spring through summer and enjoy the many food options around music and craft booth(s), and sip a cold brew. In fact, the idea was formed by the owners and operators of GourMelt Grilled Cheese Truck (the truck is also featured at the social gathering) and so I can't wait until the next time I get to try one of their many grilled cheese sandwiches!
