Those of you who walked by Soldier’s Arch tonight probably noticed the tantalizing smell of grilled cheese in the air. The smell comes from the newest food truck on Thayer, Fancheezical, which cooks up a variety of grilled cheeses and other comfort foods that include ingredients sourced from local farms.
The menu includes the BBQ ($6), a pulled pork sandwich with North Carolina BBQ sauce and a “secret cheese blend”; the Spicy Wheat ($5), a sandwich—not to be confused with the Spicy With—with jalepeno cheese; the Hill ($7), presumably named after our very own College Hill, which includes a mix of fresh pesto, tomatoes, and provolone and asiago cheeses; and the Crantastic ($5), which contains aged cheddar on cranberry walnut bread.
If none of the above selections appeal to you, you can build your own grilled cheese (B.Y.O.G.C.) Fancheezical even has vegan and gluten-free options for all you vegans, lactose- and gluten-intolerant folks out there. Every order comes with a small pack of gum, so your breath won’t smell like cheese for the rest of the day.
While the truck has only started churning out grilled cheeses (there’s only one review on Yelp!) and has yet to set a regular schedule, it plans to service Brown students on Wednesday nights and occasionally during lunchtimes. To get the latest updates from the truck, follow them on Twitter (@fancheezical) or “like” their Facebook page!
