The Daily Melt just opened up it’s second spot in Midtown right next to the Five Guys. Their first restaurant is in Coral Springs where I originally planned to hit them up til I found out about this fella. I had taken a look at the menu online so I knew which 2 I wanted to eat. I added a Cup of Broccoli & Cheese Soup. The Soups are available in either Cup or Shot, which is great for those just wanting a little something extra. The Broccoli & Cheese Soup was a run of the mill soup that can be found at a Subway or Quiznos type establishment.
Both of my Grilled Cheeses (Bacon Melt & Coney Island Melt) were on Sourdough Bread but I could have gone the Wheat route. It wouldn’t seem right to have a Grilled Cheese on Wheat Bread anyway. The Bacon Melt had Cheddar, Crispy Bacon, Spinach, Roma Tomato with a side of ruffled pickles. The Coney Island Melt was a Hot Dog Grilled Cheese with American Cheese, Chili, Onions and Yellow Mustard (and those pickles on the side too). Neither of these two did it for me. The Daily Melt is claiming to be “The Ultimate Grilled Cheese” but these are the type of sandwiches that I could recreate at my home with better ingredients and results.
My friend who was with me ate the Meatball & BBQ Pulled Pork Melts. His words after the first bite of the BBQ Pulled Pork Melt was that this was “Mall Food”. Ironically enough, the first Daily Melt location is in Coral Springs Mall so that makes sense. If you do check it out, please let me know your thoughts below in the comments area.
