This weekend was another foodie weekend with our dear friends, Ashley, Jason, and baby Ethan. We attempted to fit in as many culinary experiences as possible. I think we did a great job showing them our favorite treats in Cedar Park. Every place we took them was way more crowded than usual, which is a great sign for our favorite places. On Saturday, we headed to Whitestone Brewery with two missions: 1. Great beer and 2. To try a brand new food truck, Melted Grilled Cheese.
Whitestone was pretty busy that day so we immediately got down to business. We located a table and the boys got drinks taken care of. There was a Southern Rock style band jammin on the patio and they were decent. Once the beers were obtained, we headed out to check out the menu. As we read the menu, we were having a hard time because each option sounded better than the last one. Eventually, Mike and Ashley both picked the Hill Country Toast, I went for the Great White plus bacon, and Jason picked the Bulgogi Monster. For sides, we tried the toasted tots with queso mole and the Asian Crunch Salad.
We sat and enjoyed our beers while waiting for our food to be done. We were so excited when it arrived to our table. Everything was amazing. The Hill Country had pork, red onion jam, BBQ sauce, pepper jack, and tots all on Texas toast. The Great White had mozzarella, provolone, Parmesan, basil and roasted garlic. I added bacon on recommendation of the girl taking our order. The toasted tots were cooked to perfection with a thick creamy queso mole. Each bite was better than the previous and we all definitely enjoyed our comfort food.
Everyone who worked the Melted truck was super friendly and helpful. The other great thing about this truck is that it's grilled cheese with a mission. A portion of the proceeds from the truck go to helping social injustice abroad.
Once again, we had another great trip to Whitestone and another great weekend with our friends. We definitely look forward to trying more items off Melted's menu and hope to see them at Whitestone again soon!
