A simple yet fullfilling delight that you would never turn your face to, if it was served to you by even the worst cook you know.
Toasta has been something that has been on my radar for some time now, seeing their food trucks out and about, but being a weekend worker I have not been able to get there. Luckily for me Toasta has opened up a small little place nested on the corner of the quiet streets of West Melbourne.
A simple offer of toasted sandwiches accompanied with a coffee or for those luxury types a beer or cider. Bringing things back to basics with a modern twist of flavour combinations.
Take for example the the 'Greg', thick bread slices filled with a mix of scrambled egg, capers and dill with a touch of mayo. Added as extra sliced bacon and pickles. Rich but an utter flavour bomb to experience. I would highly recommend to enjoy this with a beer for a lunch time choice,
Now the 'Mack Daddy' is the daddy of all the toasted sandwiches here. Cheesy mac accompanied with pulled pork, bbq sauce, caramelised onions and of course cheese. Stings of melted cheese pulls away from the first bite you take, and follows with a creamy salty taste everything that makes the world of eating perfect. Hints of succulent pork cuts through with the onions and bbq sauce.
This one was the one that did it for me today - my suggestion to encounter for a first try.
For those who like to overdose themselves in cheese goodness, then grab the 'Rami', gorgonzola and cheese blend melted together with pastrami, spinach and caramelised onions. This very rich but delicious toastie is one for the cheese fans. A beautiful salty cheese combination mellowed out with the slithers of pastrami is well enjoyed. I do have to say that when I say rich, it is intense, recommending it to be one to share.
Service here is welcoming and humble. It's a great escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. For something on the run or to take a quick lunch break it is a fabulous way to unwind.
Be sure to check out Toasta & co or find out where their food trucks are headed. It's worth the hunt and sure to be a crowed pleaser.
