Restaurant Review: The Melt

Today I went with my friend Daisy to check out The Melt at the Irvine Spectrum. They are part of the grilled cheese craze!
I love their list of philosophies!
They have a very simple menu but still too many great sounding options!
Simple continues with the entire layout even in the cooking area!
They take your initials and you just watch the board to see when your order is up!
I don't know why I was so fascinated with their soda dispenser but I was!
I love the dispenser!
Daisy got the regular grilled cheese. For $2 more you can add a side salad or a cup of soup. She went with the sweet corn tortilla. The soup was perfect. Smooth like a bisque with the sweet taste of corn. You also get your choice of a side of chips or pickles.
I went with The Italian Job - fontina and provolone on housemade garlic bread. I added tomatoes to it and also added a cup of soup. I went with the seasonal soup which was sausage and peppers. The soup was smooth as well with the rich taste of sausage and pepper in each spoonful. So good to dunk the grilled cheese into the soup! The Italian Job was fantastic! The soft gooey cheese was melted perfectly and not too hot! The garlic bread was toasted perfectly as well! Just a great comfort food meal!

A great fresh meal that is relatively low cost. I was content, not overly full and definitely not hungry for anything else.
