Nordstrom officially opens their doors to the public on Sept. 18, but luckily for me, Potato had given me the inside scoop on Nordstrom’s VIP BFF premiere event and I had booked facials, bra fittings and makeovers for KitKat and I (all free of cost). After a whole morning of being pampered, picking off the delicious hors d’oeuvres and desserts, recieving mountains of free samples and enabling each other to make purchases (portion of the proceeds go to the Breast Cancer Foundation), KitKat and I hit the streets of downtown Vancouver with our high spirits and radiant glow. While we strolling around as advertising agents of Nordstrom with our gazillion shopping bags, we came across Mom’s Grilled Cheese Truck and KitKat suggested we get a sandwich to share as we haven’t officially had lunch yet (though we’ve been munching throughout the morning). I couldn’t resist.
Mom’s Grilled Cheese Truck has daily specials and classic grilled cheeses which you can customize. We ordered a classic grilled cheese on sourdough with havarti cheese ($8) and made it a super-deluxe with double smoked bacon and avocado (+$1.75 each).
The sandwich was served to us in a paper cone with 2 spears of pickles and kettle chips at the bottom. The bread had been buttered and the cheese was ooey gooey. The avocado was creamy and the double smoked bacon added just the right amount of smokey saltiness. While perfectly delicious on its own, KitKat and I enjoyed a little bit of sriracha ketchup with our sandwich. It totally added a whole ‘nother dimension. Moreover, the spicy, tangy sauce offset the heavy richness of the cheese.
KitKat and I only had half a sandwich each, but it was super filling. We didn’t even finish our pickles and chips. Nevertheless, we still had room for ice cream! I had caught wind that Uyu extended their milk tea soft serve for the week and that’s where we headed next. After our indulgence, we were off to pick up some wine and cheese to prepare for our epic night in with the girls. Basically, Netflix and chill. My kind of date night.
