Cheese Meats Bread

Feel like a grilled cheese? Head over to Uwajimaja and you'll find Cheese Meats Bread. I initially wanted to visit because I saw they serve a grilled cheese filled with mac and cheese. That item seemed unique and like something you can't find in many spots. But silly me, I ordered the wrong thing and ended up with just a classic grilled cheese filled with Hills Bacon. Don't get me wrong. It was tasty with that crispy bacon, lots of melted cheese and good quality bread. But its something I could have whipped up at home for a lot less.

My husband had the French Dip grilled cheese. It had the Cheese Meats Bread cheese blend, gruyere, braised beef cheeks, onion marmalade, French white, and onion broth. Each sandwich came in a box and was served with a side salad. Just be aware of the Buffalo Ranch dressing. It was so spicy that the salad was almost uneatable. I would suggest getting the Vinaigrette if you don't do spicy well. We also had the tots which came in a large Chinese take out box and were hot, salty, and crispy. We washed it all down with a bottle of good old Coca Cola.

The owners are the same people who own 8oz Burger which I've heard good things about. These guys are great at paying attention to details and using the best ingredients to bring their products up a notch. The space is really small with only a counter with five or so stools. But I loved the cheese grater light fixtures overhead. If there's no room just pick up your food and eat in the food court.

So if you're hanging out in Uwajimaja in Chinatown and don't feel like eating Asian cuisine, then Cheese Meats Bread may be just the thing to nosh on.
