Grill Master Cafe has a giant menu, I mean, it’s the Big Pink of Food Truck menus. While trying to figure out what to order I decide, why rack my brain? I make the critical decision to order the 5 that interest me the most. The Grill Master Burger and the Frita Cubana are a given, but the Grill Master Hot Dog, Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich and Homemade “Idaho” Fries with Cheese & Bacon round out my five choices. I was still looking over the menu while everything was being prepared thinking I still could have gone with a Pincho or a Croqueta Preparada.
The first thing ready was the Fries which are fresh cut. The Fries are not blanched (fried twice, the first time to get the outside crispy) which is the popular method to make fresh cut Fries at places like Five Guys and Outback Steakhouse. My mom used to make me Fries like this and I of course liked them (unless I want my mom to read this and kill me).
The Grill Master Dog (which I believe is the National Deli brand) is topped with Julienne Potatoes, Sauteed Onions and a Special Sauce. It’s not a small Hot Dog by any stretch but I think that when I have it again I’d add some more of the Sauce or Mustard. I loved the Julienne Potatoes and the choice of Hot Dog was a good one. The Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich is Philly via Miami.
The steak itself has some very Cuban flavors and are thicker pieces of meat than the run of the mill Cheese Steaks you’ll eat everywhere. It’s topped with the usual suspects of Grilled Onions and Cheese, definitely worth a try. What’s left? The Grill Master Burger and Frita Cubana.
These are both freshly prepared and not the frozen stuff. Both are great and if you needed to choose between them I’d give a slight advantage to the Burger for an underlying sweetness that really adds to its taste. The corn dusted buns on both were good also. Frita purists might have an issue with the bun and the fact that there’s cheese on it, but the meat is right on target. It might take me a few more trips to work my way through the menu so I’ll keep you posted. I’ll hope you’ll keep me posted too.
