Monte Cristo: Gourmet Grilled Cheese On-the-Go

Monte Cristo joins the mobile food movement with the yellow and white polka-dotted, a gourmet grilled-cheese truck in which cinnamon toast is batter-dipped, griddled, and layered with two cheeses (cheddar and Gruyère) and Canadian bacon, then dusted with powdered sugar and splashed with lime for the Full Monte signature sandwich ($8). If that seems a wee bit over the top, you’re getting the idea.

For the No. 4, four Samish Bay cheeses are piled onto a torta roll with a spread of peach-jalapeño chutney ($8.99) for a tasty Caribbean take. The classic grilled cheese, with cheddar, Jack and Gruyère ($6.99), is a nice choice, even if I’m on the fence about the blueberry dipping sauce.

Just one major stumble to avoid—“Shrooms on a Shingle” ($8.25): The shingle (rosemary flat bread) was soggy under the weight of cheese and mushrooms, and the sandwich became glued to the paper plate.
