Melt Shop

As you know, Sara and I LOVE grilled cheese. So you can imagine how excited I was when I found a delicious shop in NYC that specializes in grilled cheese! I immediately texted Sara to tell her the good news, and that I would be taking her here when she visits!

You can find Melt Shop in three different locations in the city, two in Midtown and one in Chelsea. Because I wanted to blog about it, I decided to go there… a lot. Hey, I had to try a bunch of sandwiches before I found my favorites! After several months of trials and tribulations (yes, tasting a lot of grilled cheese IS as terrible as it sounds!) here are the winners:

First, may I present the fabulously decadent Truffle Melt! It has havarti, arugula and cracked black pepper and is drizzled with truffle oil on toasty sourdough bread. Yes, truffle oil. Sold!

Next, I recommend the Aged Cheddar melt with thick-cut maple glazed bacon. It’s the perfect mix of cheddar and bacon, you will love it!

I also like the Buffalo Blue melt. It has freshly-breaded boneless chicken tenders with pepper jack and crumbled blue cheeses, and is served with homemade buffalo sauce. It has a kick to it, and my only complaint is that the chicken pieces are a bit large!

I also LOVE the Tuna Melt! It has delicious tuna salad with celery, capers, sharp cheddar cheese and sliced tomato on white bread. I may or may not have ordered this more than once, you know… just to be 110% sure I liked it!

And my number one choice is… the 12 Hour Braised Pulled Pork! It is awesome! It even beats the truffle melt, and that is saying a lot because you know how much I love truffle!

The pork tastes amazing, and is topped with sharp cheddar, dill pickle and homemade BBQ sauce. I know it sounds weird, but the pickle adds the perfect balance to the sandwich!

Oh and I forgot to mention another important fact about Melt Shop. It has tater tots with dipping sauces!

The Shop Tots with Truffle Mayo Dip is to die for.

As many times that I’ve been there over the past few months, I still haven’t tried everything that I want to! Did you know Melt Shop has a Peanut Butter & Jelly milkshake?! It is definitely on my list!

Odds are, you’ll probably see me there…
