It’s wet outside. Time for a grilled cheese sandwich.

I was walking down Market street feeling the giddiness that only the purchase of a new MUNI monthly pass can bring. Aww, yeah. With my MUNI pass, I own this town. Anything can happen.

It started to rain. But I was in the right place at the right time because The Ferry Building Marketplace was right across the street. Time for lunch. I got a window seat at the Hog Island Oyster Company.

When I sauntered in there I imagined I’d get a bowl of chowder or something, but I saw this on the menu:

Cowgirl Creamery Grilled Cheese Sandwich
with Fromage Blanc, Mezzo Secco and Cave Aged Gruyere served with pickled vegetable

Yeah. I know. Grilled cheese. You can make it at home, etc. But dude. Seriously. This sandwich blew my mind. I chased it down with that fancy, bottled ‘French Fashioned’ lemonade. The skies parted. More rain poured down. Jeesus, I was in pure heaven.

    Fancy grilled cheese – now you are talking my language!

    Exactly. I was going to keep this spot to myself. Save it up for a hot date or something, but since “my game is to have no game”… I thought it best to share.

    How much dough did this fancy grilled cheese set you back? Yeah, I know, it costs to go to Heaven, if only briefly on dairy highs.

    Oh, I don’t know. It wasn’t cheap, but neither were the ingredients. If you want to try one, let me know. My treat. You can pay for the oysters. ;-)

    I really liked the bread they used, the pickled veggies were divine, and of course it was served up on a lovely Heath Ceramics plate with a view of the Bay.

    Sounds like a hot date. I’ll take you up on it one of these days.
