No doubt, you always feel cooler when you're doing something on the DL, but eventually, you do realize you're going to have to play basketball again, right Greg Oden? For a street food slinger who's off the DL, and ready to start feeling legal, try the Toasty Melts Truck, launching Sunday.
From the folks behind a hush-hush, kinda-illegal, grilled-cheese-making cart that used a butane-fired pancake griddle, the TMT is their attempt to legitimize the operation in the form of a 26ft GMC behemoth that's ready to legally sling a plethora of melted goodness. Bread-and-cheese combos'll include their Panorama-breaded ABC Melt (Fuji apples, Zoe's bacon, and Dubliner cheese), the Godfather (Zoe's prosciutto, basil aioli, and mozzarella), and the classic three-cheese (white cheddar, Gouda, and Jack), plus a regularly changing soup option, which you should never ever let Elaine order. They'll also be slinging less traditional melted cheese'd edibles like a Green Onion Pancake Quesadilla and a collab Papalote Melt that'll incorporate salsa from said burrito joint, which's been known to get people crazy
Track 'em on Twitter and expect to see them at food-truck-apalooza Off The Grid (including this Sunday's launch at OTG's Whole Enchilada event at Dolores Park), plus hopefully corners like Van Ness & Clay, Sansome & California, and 1st & Howard -- though just the thought of having to guard the latter might actually explain Greg's supposed frailty.
