We have been fans of Melthouse Bistro located on Milwaukee's near East side since it opened. Yesterday was an opportunity to show our love and support our favorite business. A long running Wisconsin show called "Discover Wisconsin," that takes you around Wisconsin and shows you where to visit and eat, was filming a segment there. Fans were asked on Facebook to come and help celebrate.
Grilled cheese instantly takes you back to your childhood. Melthouse elevates their sandwiches to a whole new level by adding the freshest of ingredients and unique toppings from BBQ pulled pork to all veggie inspired creations such as my favorite: The Sergeant Pepper. They have three different price points depending on what kind of toppings you would like on your grilled cheese.
Wisconsinites also like their beer. There is an amazing cheddar beer soup which is to die for. I am a creature of habit so I usually order the same things every time.
With the veggie options, you don't miss the meat. The "Sergeant Pepper" has cauliflower and peppers and is my must have sandwich or the "Athena" which has eggplant and feta cheese. We got to try the amazing Wisconsin Cheese curds which my daughter nearly finished the entire plate by herself. They do have carnivore options too with pulled pork and hamburgers.
You can pair your sandwich with their famous tomato soup, coleslaw, or even fruit. They also have a kids eat free Sunday brunch we are very fond of. There are also a selection of locally crafted beverages and desserts.
Facebook said to be at the business by 10:30PM and we were the first ones there. We got a chance or I should say, my daughter got a chance to be on camera. She is a chatterbox and will tell you exactly what she thinks (even if it embarrasses Mom!) The episode is slated to air around November 16-17th.
If you are in the Milwaukee area, you have to try this place! It is a favorite for my family, and I am sure it will be yours too!
