Cheese Bliss at The Melt

We dined as a guest of the venue

There is one thing that I can’t live without, and that is cheese. I have walked past The Melt restaurant locations multiple times but have never stopped to have a bite to eat until recently. It was a busy week getting ready before a big trip to Mexico, and I wasn’t feeling like cooking, so I took the kids to The Melt for dinner.

Since I had to pick-up a couple of things at the mall, I took them to the Mission Viejo Mall location. The new Mission Viejo location is right at the mall entrance and features a large outdoor patio. The menu is simple and easily customizable for those with food allergies.

The one thing on the menu that immediately caught the eye of my younger son was the “hole in the bread.” My son loves it when my husband makes it for him at home, and he was eager to see how the chef at The Melt would prepare his favorite cheese dish. If you’re not familiar with a “hole in the bread” it is a grilled cheese sandwich with an egg inside – yum. My son ordered it with a side caesar salad and devoured every last bite. Did I mention that his salad had grilled cheese croutons? So cool!

Since my husband has been watching his diet, he ordered the chopped chicken salad. The salad was fresh, light and delicious.

It was the cheese and bacon fries that my daughter couldn’t resist trying, and she ordered them with a traditional cheeseburger. The fries were a little slice of heaven, and her burger was juicy perfection.

Finally, I went with trying the cheesesteak grilled cheese. The sandwich was out of this world and featured aged cheddar cheese, Angus sirloin, and grilled onions. I have been craving more of this sandwich ever since I sunk my taste buds into it.
