You know that part in "The Farmer in the Dell" where the cheese stands alone? Well, that part sucks, because the cheese should be getting together with bread, butter, and heat to make a delicious grilled cheese. Thankfully, people in San Diego know this, and here are their five most meltingly mouthwatering grilled cheese creations

Devilicious Food Truck's Butter-Poached Lobster Grilled Cheese @DEVILICIOUSFOOD Deliciously thumbing its nose at all the Chopped judges who whine about pairing seafood and dairy, this grilled cheese packs meaty pieces of lobster in with melted jack & cheddar cheeses, caramelized onions, and Roma tomatoes grilled between slices of sourdough

Add fresh tomatoes if you want to pretend to be healthy

GreenGo Grilled Cheese Gastro Truck's GreenGo 2 the Toilet 619.587.6058; @yosoygreengo There's nothing wrong with their Basic 5 (Provolone, aged cheddar, Swiss, Muenster & mozz), but there's also nothing wrong with going for the Carnivore and having them throw a hamburger patty in there. Further add-ons incluse goat cheese, applewood bacon & roasted bell peppers, along with "spreads" like ale beer chipotle mayo, much better than the ones the Chargers generally don't cover

Cheesy Amigos Gourmet Grilled Cheese Cart's Spicy Grilled Cheese 619.481.9444; @CheesyAmigos If you like your cheese spicy ("Go on," say Jeremy Piven's female admirers... ), this hot number has creamy cheddar infused with jalapeno, along with habanero & cayenne, plus a slathering of chipotle aioli on French bread

The Cheese Shop's Greek Grilled Cheese 311 Island Ave; Gaslamp Quarter; 619.232.2303 You'll forgive it for all the heroin it funneled into Baltimore on account of tangy feta cheese, chopped oregano, and tomatoes.
