Meltkraft Is Open in Center City
Grilled cheese specialist, Meltkraft has opened its second Center City location and first standalone storefront in Philadelphia. Meltkraft, which shares space with Valley Shepherd Creamery in the Reading Terminal Market has opened a bi-level location at 46 South 17th Street.
The grilled cheese shop offers a similar menu to the Terminal location, with favorites like the Valley Thunder sandwich of brisket and baked macaroni and cheese, as well as the Somerset, Gruyere, cured ham, cornichon pickles and wholegrain mustard. Of course if you are a grilled cheese purist, the classic is three Valley Shepherd cheeses and nothing else.
The Center City Meltkraft also offers Reading Terminal Market staples like Famous 4th Street Cookies and Bassetts Ice Cream. Down the road, the 17th and Chestnut location will offer Valley Shepherd mozzarella for sale.
Today was the official opening and the grilled cheese shop was already running a special of the Hula Kālua; Hawaiian pulled pork, Valley Thunder Cheddar, pineapple salsa, grilled in bacon fat and served on brioche.
Meltkraft is open seven days a week, from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
