We were actually looking for the Skillet food truck…but I guess my research skills are only subpar sinnnce we arrived at the brick-and-mortar diner. But it satisfied my need to have the oh-so famous bacon jam.
The diner was beautifully decorated. Airy and lots of natural light. Mason jars for water glass and kitchen towels for napkin. Lovely.
I got “the ultimate grilled cheese”:
Look at it.
On a side note – if I could make all sandwiches on brioche I would. Love that stuff. And of course, I got the added bacon jam for two dollas.
The bf got the burger:
Man, good thing I got the side of soup instead of fries. We could not even finish this behemoth portion of poutine. While the poutine was delicious in all its gravy, poutine-y goodness, we definitely felt like we had a brick in our stomachs after this. Sub the poutine with caution and make sure you have a good buddy to help you attack it.
Anyways, the burger. All of Skillet’s beef is locally raised at Painted Hills. The bf gave me a bite, it was delicious. I just tried the beef though, me and blue cheese = no bueno. Bf loved it, the combination of bacon jam, arugula, cambozola, and beef was perfection.
