While visiting Fort Lauderdale’s Wilton Manors one late evening we saw a sign for a restaurant simply called Grilled Cheese. How intriguing! When we walked in it looked like a Frozen Yogurt place, but then we realized it was two restaurants in one, with Grilled Cheese in the back down a hallway (almost like a secret location that only the locals knew about).
Small counter, small menu and a small amount of tables, but everything on the menu sounded good and we felt like this was just the right kind of place for us.
There are about seven different Grilled Cheese Sandwiches to choose from. Each one comes pressed in a Waffle Iron and is served with a small portion of Creamy Tomato Bisque for dipping (absolutely delicious).
They also offer a handful of side items. We had to try both the Sweet Potato Waffle Fries (served with Marshmallow Sauce $3) and the Disco Fries (Poutine – Fries, Cheese Morsels and Hot Gravy $5.95 for the Large Size).
Both side items were deliciously decadent and really soaked up some of the liquor we had been drinking.
The Sandwich I chose was the Manhattan Grilled Mac ‘n Cheese (Gooey American-Cheddar Cheese and homemade Mac ‘n Cheese stuffed in between two slices of Country Loaf $8.50). It was super-cheesy and was so good dunked in the Tomato Soup, like a grown up version of one of my childhood favorites.
I really, really like this place, and I am almost tempted to drive the three hours back to Fort Lauderdale just to have it again! Highly Recommended.
