The Big Boy Grilled Cheese

Join me on my food adventures on Sean's Adventures In Flavor Town

Comics in the tables, jukeboxes at every table and snappy service, this can mean only one thing-lunch at The Templeton!  I had a lunch meeting and we needed to meet someplace comfortable so The Templeton was a perfect fit.

I went with something simple or so I thought-a grilled cheese with fries and a tossed salad (you get your choice of sides and for a couple bucks more you can get fries and a small salad).  As you can see this isn’t your typical diner salad.  This beautiful bunch of vegetables was a kaleidoscope of color and flavor.  The greens and veggies were all fresh and they use a strawberry vinaigrette that added a nice fruity flavor without being too sweet.

The grilled cheese and fries came to the table and I was hit with the complex aroma of cave aged Gruyère cheese.  This is one of those sandwiches that you eat with a knife and fork.  When I took my 1st bite it was a flavor punch of the thinly sliced raw onions and then the Gruyère cheese-it’s a smack down for your taste buds.  The bread was super crispy, the cheese was beautifully melted and did a great job of holding the toppings to the bread.  If you’re not a fan of big flavored cheese I’d suggest substituting another cheese like cheddar.  I called this the “big boy” grilled cheese simply because I wouldn’t serve it to a kid-they would freak out and spit it out!

Every meal I’ve had at The Templeton has been good and this was no different.  If you’re looking for a solid, no fuss meal I’d definitely suggest The Templeton on Granville Street any day of the week.
