When the dark and dreary days take over Vancouver, there’s nothing quite like a melty, oozy grilled cheese sandwich to cure those Winter blues.

Check out these local spots serving up incredible versions of everybody’s favourite comfort meal.

Best Grilled Cheese In Vancouver

Mom’s Grilled Cheese Food Truck

The popular food truck can usually be found near the Vancouver Art Gallery (Howe and Robson). Their grilled cheese is so good, it’s almost as if your mom made it. They always serve up a scrumptious daily special. Try the Jackson 3—the triple threat has brie, boursin, and gruyere. Or you can create your own grilled cheese masterpiece by selecting your own bread, cheese and deluxe ingredients (pickles, banana peppers, avocado, double smoked bacon) to kick it up a notch.

Burgoo

You have to try their gooey grilled cheese with melted mozzarella, gruyere, emmenthal and white cheddar cheeses on a fresh baguette. They have locations downtown (1100 Burrard), Kits (2272 West 4th), Mount Pleasant (3096 Main), North Vancouver (3 Lonsdale Ave), and Point Grey (4434 West 10th).

The Greedy Pig

On the last stop of our grilled cheese series, we visited The Greedy Pig. The Greedy Pig is a cool little bar in Gastown whose menu features an old fashioned grilled cheese with a twist. This cheddar based grilled cheese is served between two slices of soft white sourdough and includes a surprising hint of something sweet. We couldn't put our finger on exactly what it was, but it tasted like it could have been marmalade. Whatever this sweet little surprise was, it added a lovely touch to this otherwise simple sandwich with a flavour that complimented the cheese perfectly. If you're in the neighbourhood and looking to wet your whistle, be sure to pop into The Greedy Pig and give this delicious grilled cheese a try.
