I have a friend at work that I have lunch with every week. Even though he’s worked at the company longer than I have, I’ve be able to introduce him to more places in the past month than he’s experienced in the 4 years he’s been here! Today, I took him to Melt Shop, a new-ish grilled cheese place downtown. I first discovered it about two weeks ago and had a fantastic grilled cheese with maple bacon, but I wasn’t able to get a good shot of the sammy. I decided to bring my new partner in “lunch” to check it out.
This time around, I tried the loaded tater tots. The tots were covered with melted cheese, chopped bacon, jalapeno and sprinkled with parmesan cheese on top.
I dare you to tell me you wouldn’t love it. They don’t realize that they could make a mint on this alone if they were open late night around U street or in Adams Morgan. Sigh, in the meantime, I will enjoy it for lunch and run for dinner!
