You know it’s October(fest) when the Morris Truck has a Beer and Brats Grilled Cheese on the menu. The Morris Truck is one of the better NYC food trucks when it comes to using seasonal ingredients.
The menu rotates pretty regularly, so you never know exactly what will be on the menu on any given day – but there will likely be at least one grilled cheese sandwich that suits your taste.
Our taste includes beer and brats, but they also had sandwiches with gouda, bacon & ramp butter, bbq chicken sausage with peach bourbon bbq sauce, and a “delicate” grilled cheese with truffle cheese, truffle butter and caramelized shallots. (Too bad we can’t get a sampler with some of each!)
Prices generally range from $8-10 for the specials, but you get a “classic” grilled cheese for $5.75.
You can be assured the Morris Truck will grill your sandwich to perfection. Depending upon the cheese, there’s also a good chance it will be oozing out the sides. Our ale cheddar cheese certainly did, and yes, there was the distinct taste of ale in the cheddar cheese (but it wasn’t like drinking a beer).
As with most grilled cheeses we’ve had at the Morris Truck, we wish there was more meat in the sandwich, but a) that’s often a common complaint of ours, and b) the cheese is the star of the show here, not the meat.
The hops aioli was not readily apparent, but the pickled cucumber was a nice addition. The tang played off the deep richness of the ale cheddar cheese.
You can find the Morris Truck on twitter here, on facebook here, and their website is here. They make the rounds of various business areas for lunch, so keep an eye out for the incandescent EAT sign on the back of the truck.
