When it comes to classic comfort food, it’s tough to beat grilled cheese sandwiches. Their buttery, melty deliciousness doesn’t disappoint, especially when you have a bowl of tomato soup to dip in. But even though you can find them practically everywhere, finding a really amazing grilled cheese isn’t so easy. That’s why we’re glad the “New York Post” did the detective work for us, here are their top five picks from across the country.
- Mission Cheese in San Francisco, CA - This artisan cheese bar finds the best American-made cheeses and makes their pressed sandwiches on hearty country levain. One favorite is the California Gold:
