Hey Curvy Girly’s!
As you may or may not know, June 4th was National Cheese Day and I was on a mission to find the perfect Grilled Cheese Sandwich. I had friends and family looking up places, sending me emails, and reading through countless Yelp reviews which can be misleading because some people may like it, while others did not.
On National Cheese Day, I didn’t make it to any restaurant for my Grilled Cheese but I did make it on June 5th. While hanging out with my friend Sherrie(Pictured Below), we decided to have a day out in the world with no real destination except for a burlesque show that evening. We started our day at SK Donuts, since it just so happen to be National Doughnut Day.
As we sat in the car enjoying our Maple Bacon CroNuts, we started flipping through our phones to find that perfect Grilled Cheese…Maybe the word perfect was too much and was hindering us but, we kept searching and searching looking for pictures, reviews, whatever little gem that we would give us that “We Found it” moment.
After going over place after place, we decided to try this little shoppe in Silver Lake called Heywood Gourmet Grilled Cheese. The restaurant was located on Sunset Blvd situated between two amazing boutiques that I must go back to.
As you entered, you were immediately welcomed and the farm house feel of the place, made you feel right at home. We walked over the counter, looked up and there was this amazing menu board filled with choices of Grilled Cheese Sandwiches. Sherrie opted for the “Peking Pig”which was French Comte with Cripsy Proscuitto and Maple Bacon on Brioche. I decided on the “Holy Grail” which had Smoked Gouda with Slow roasted Braised Short Ribs and Kimchee on Brioche. Now, because I’m not a huge fan of Kimchee, so I removed it from the sandwich and added Maple Bacon.
Our sandwiches came with Homemade tomato soup, which you can tell that someone took care and proud in making because it was delicious and a salad that was dressed to perfection.
Yes, I can honestly say, that I think I’ve found the perfect Grilled Cheese at Heywood. Ive officially placed Heywood on my list of places to come back to again and again.
