Jan 28, 2013 – The brothers own and run MLTDWN, their homage to the grilled cheese sandwich. Ah, the grilled cheese sandwich. Is there anything that says …
Downtown Kingston is home to numerous dining establishments who devote their entire menus to one type of food or another. From gourmet burger bistros such as The Works and Harper’s, to delicious poutineries including Smoke’s and divine pizzerias such as Woodenheads and Atomica, there is no shortage of specialty restos to satisfy your specialty craving. Basing one’s entire menu on variations of a single dish can be risky business, but many successful restaurants thrive by employing this strategy. Over time, they become the first place we think of when we crave the best, gourmet (insert food type here). Therefore, it stands to reason that MltDwn, a new purveyor of gourmet grilled cheese, could eventually satisfy a craving Kingstonians didn’t realize they had.
When I think of comfort food, grilled cheese and Kraft Dinner come to mind. So when I came across a sampling of MLT DWN’s mac and cheese grilled cheese during the sidewalk sale in Frosh Week, I thought I’d died and gone to heaven. That little taste of heaven was on my mind for the following few days, and I found myself raving about it to anyone who would listen. Nostalgic of my Frosh Week experience, I had to try it out when I walked past the Princess St. restaurant the other day.
We predict that this original Kingstonian fast-food joint is going to go global. You won’t be able to resist the calorific goodness oozing from just about every conceivable twist on the humble grilled cheese sandwich…especially if it’s late and you’re stumbling back from the pub. Cheesetastic.
