A few weeks back, R and I spent a couple of days in Portland, Oregon and loved it! It was gorgeous, clean and oh so very green! Of course, a large part of the visit was the food. :) One of the many places we ate at was The Grilled Cheese Grill. I loved this place… imagine eating in an old school bus! I loved the cheekiness of eating a grilled cheese in a school bus and playing trivia at the same time.
The menu is simple and everything is made with good quality ingredients, which I really appreciate. They have a section called the classics with sandwiches named the kindergartener, the pre-schooler and the first garder. How fun is that? You can also customize your sandwich with a variety of toppings to rock your boat.
The husband and I split three sandwiches (which was more than plenty, thank you very much!) and everything we had were true odes to the ooey gooey crispy goodness that is a grilled cheese!
I had The Popper which has roasted jalapeños, white cheddar and tortilla chips… yes you read it right… tortilla chips! My husband had one of the daily specials. Apart from this I managed to get in a single bite (seriously, it was just a bite!) of the classic grilled cheese and it was sheer heaven! We split a tomato soup that was homey and classic in flavor.
If you do have space, the Grilled Cheese Grill also offers sweet versions of their sandwiches like The Elvis! R and I had no space left to even contemplate getting one, so if you’ve ever tasted one of the sweets, do drop me a line about your experience!
Here are some pictures:
There’s the famous school bus/ dining area!
