Celebrate National Grilled Cheese Day!
by Sarah Silbert
According to the web, April 12th is National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day. Although toasted bread with cheese has been popular for centuries across the globe, the American version of grilled cheese first became popular in the 1920s when sliced bread and inexpensive cheese were made widely available. Today, the iconic sandwich comes in many fancy variations. One of my favorites in Boston is Roxy’s Grilled Cheese, a popular food truck that bills itself as “Boston’s Best Grilled Cheese.” Roxy’s prides itself on fresh ingredients and made to order cuisine, which you can tell from the first delicious bite.
In honor of National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day, my team and I took a journey to
the Roxy’ Grilled Cheese truck – which parks near the Westin Copley Place in front of the Boston Public Library on Boylston St. on Tuesday evenings and Friday afternoons. We ordered three of their signature sandwiches – the Rookie Melt, the Green Muenster Melt, and the Kinda-Caprese, along with sides of roasted tomato soup and handcut truffle fries. The truffle fries are to-die-for. Seriously, I’m developing a dangerous addiction! And the secret to that extra crispy bread? A secret mayonnaise spread!
This is one assignment the team and I were more than happy to take on! Have you been to Roxy’s Grilled Cheese or do you have another favorite food truck? Share with us the comments!
