It’s official: the French word for grilled cheese is grilled cheese. This is according to the OLQF, the keeper of the language in Quebec. To celebrate this occasion, instead of ordering up un sandwich au fromage fondu, I headed down to MELTwich for a grilled cheese avec bacon:
OK, let’s break it down. The bread is nice and toasty, the cheese is ooey-gooey kablooey, and, if there’s one complaint, it’s that there’s probably not enough bacon. On the plus side, at least I wasn’t in violation of any language laws. It turns out that the French word for bacon was already bacon!
