Gorilla Cheese: Warm up in the cold weather!

When the weather gets cold, I (like many people) start to lean on comfort food to warm me up. And, to be honest, what says “comfort food” more than a good old fashioned grilled cheese sandwich?

That’s exactly what I found when I visited Gorilla Cheese, a grilled cheese sandwich based food truck. As I made my way to their typical Tuesday lunchtime location on 47th Street, between Park and Madison Avenue, I couldn’t wait to try one of their delicious classics.

The menu was very varied: they had a delicious special sandwich of the day, specialty sandwiches and make-your-own classics where you can pick the cheese (American, Cheddar, Gruyere, Smoked Mozzarella, Muenster or Swiss) along with some additions (BBQ Pulled Pork, Prosciutto Di Parma, Killer Crumbled Bacon, Smoked Turkey, Caramelized Onions, Sliced Tomato, Sauteed Jalapenos, or Parmesan Sesame Herb Crust). But as I walked up to the truck, all I wanted to know was their most sought-after sandwich.

When I asked the three nice men working at the truck, they turned me onto their Specialty Sandwich #5, made out of smoked Gouda cheese, BBQ pulled pork and onion on wheat bread. I ordered it immediately, along with the highly recommended mac and cheese bites.

The first thing I did was trying those mini bites (there were four in my order) and they were downright divine. I mean, it’s pretty hard to go wrong with fried macaroni and cheese but they really excelled in their dish. Then it was on to the actual grilled cheese sandwich, which I found had the perfect combination of tangy sweetness from the BBQ pulled pork and the surprise of the onions was just perfect.

Not surprisingly, the Gorilla Cheese NYC truck is all about “taking comfort food and home cooking to a new level.” They serve up fresh local bread and tasty diverse cheeses made with lots of love every day. Plus, their daily specials (like the “Brooklyn Special” made with fresh asiago cheese, prosciutto de parma inside of a panini with aioli) make me drool. Finding a way to find the best kind of comfort food is easy, if you just follow them on twitter or Facebook. I mean, I’m definitely planning to indulge a couple more times after having their amazing sandwich!
