Grilled cheese sandwiches. So simple and comforting, and turned into a recent trend. For a quick indulgent dinner on a weeknight, I went to the Dallas Grilled Cheese Co. in Bishop Arts. I’ve heard lots of mixed opinions about the food, along with some not-so-lovely write ups too. Upon sitting down at the restaurant, I even got a Facebook notification from a friend telling me to leave. Yikes!
Oh well, the order was placed and I was committed. My first tastes included the Grilled Bologna Sandwich on white bread, with fried bologna, cheddar and mayo. Bacon was added because duh. It was tasty, good amount of cheese. I liked it.
Next up, the Cuban. I didn’t come all the way here (oh you know, like it’s so far) for a basic grilled cheese sandwich. Nope nope. I splurged and got the Cuban, which has roasted pork, ham, swiss cheese, pickles, and spicy mayo on grilled sourdough. It was damn delicious.
In addition to the grilled sandwiches, I also got to try both of the tomato soups. I ordered the Tomato Ambles soup. It was good, but wasn’t mind blowing. It did the job and went well with my sandwich. I wasn’t a fan of the Rustic Tomato Basil soup. It was chunky and thicker than I personally like. Tasted like marinara sauce. Not really, my thing. I also got to sample the house fries. They look amazing, but weren’t great at all. Such a shame.
The place as pretty busy for a Thursday night and the hype is still there apparently. I like the sandwiches I got to try and I’m glad they were the star of the show (as they should be). The soups could use some work. What’s a sandwich without it’s favorite soup? Stay hungry friends!
