Melt | Honolulu, Hawaii

Food trucks seem to be quite the rage these days in Honolulu. Melt is one that specializes in gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches and has been getting a lot of attention from the Twitter community. They were recently in Kaimuki, so I took my family by to see what all the buzz was about. The food was good and I definitely see myself going back the next time they're in my 'hood.

The owners typically don't reveal where they'll be more than a day or two in advance. Follow them on Twitter for their current location.

$2 buys you a small cup of their homemade tomato soup. It had just enough acidity to balance out the richness of the cheese.

I had to order the "Melt of Shame." It's a quarter-pound Kuahiwi beef patty with caramelized onions, served between two grilled cheese sandwiches. At $11, it's an indulgence, but so worth it. I left satisfied, without feeling overly full or weighed down.

  1. Oh boy, eleven bucks for a sandwich. Though I personally would cut my right hand off for anything local.
