I expected at a restaurant that purports to specialize in cheese to at least receive a fondue when I order one—not overly salty, watery cheese soup. I had to mix a load of honey & pepper in to mask the saltiness (which would have been tolerable had it been in fondue form, at the very least). The sides served with the "fondue" were (1) different from the ones stated on the menu, and (2) dry & bland.

Furthermore, their Big Buff (which was supposed to have buffalo chicken in it, hence its name) was stuffed with plain fried chicken, completely devoid of buffalo sauce. Luckily the waiters were apologetic & compensated for the shortcoming of the cooks by granting our requests for additional sauces & condiments. However even this was unable to redeem the food entirely. Sadly, the whole experience was rather disappointing.

Soooo delishhhhh

PLACE:

Wasn't able to try to dine inside since place was jam-packed.

FOOD:

Everything was soooo good.

Monte Cristo : This was soo good. You can see how cheesy it is and how gooey the cheese is. You can also hear the crunch of the toast in every bite. With or without the honey, this is sooo divine.

Mac and Cheese Sandwich : This was also so good. There's a generous amount of mac and cheese on it. A definite must try as well.

Chicken Parmigiana : Im actually not sure if it was indeed a parmigiana. I just tasted it from my officemate. It was also soo good. If you're the kind of person that can't live without rice, melt is still a place for you. They offer a wide range of great food.

Some of my officemates ordered pasta and sausages, wasn't able to take a picture of it but it was pretty good as well.

SERVICE:

Friendly and accommodating staff. Fast service as well

PRICE:

The food is definitely worth every peso.

VERDICT:

Did I enjoy it? Definitely
Will I recommend it? Definitely
Will I come back? Definitely YES

Cheese is love! 10084

Finally got to try this place and I loved it! (Biases aside because I love cheese! 🤣)

What I ordered:

- Tomato Soup
- The classic grilled cheese

Tomato soup came with a small piece of bread that had cheese on it. Soup was flavorful, one downside though is the serving size was so small. Wala pa ata sa 1/4 ng bowl. 128533

The classic grilled cheese came with a side of chips (not sure if its camote) and a tomato paste thingy. Tastes good and It really is instagram worthy. 🤣

Already ordered when I saw a raclette sign near the kitchen.. will probably try that next time.

Overall food was delicious. 10084

Melt opened about a year ago in Uptown BGC. Their speciality as the name of the restaurant suggests is melted cheese on bread, better known to us food lovers as Grilled Cheese Sanwiches.

Tried 3 items on their menu:

⚬Mac and Cheese Bars- Fried Mac and Cheese served with honey and sour cream dip

⚬The Classic Melt- Mozzarella and cheddar cheese melted between sourdough bread with tomato bits and sour cream sauce

⚬Chicken Roulade - Mozzarella stuffed chicken on top of pesto rice with sour cream sauce

Overall, I was quite disappointed with my visit. Their food tasted like it needed an extra kick of salt and spices. I wouldn't order the same items again. It'll take quite a while for me to return and give this store another shot.

Did not continue to eat here since the waitress Jumela decided it was ok to spill cold water on my daughter. Apologized but smiled then had the audacity to go back and apologize again while smiling... whew boy.... then when she turned back she looked at her other colleagues and cracked an "oops sorry" smile... my daughter is 1 and a half years old. Ice cold water on her head and back is not OK! Jennifer and Joshua of Melt apologized sincerely. Jennifer is their store head, who also provided us with a plastic bag for our daughters wet clothes, provided dry cloths as well to wipe her with.

I do not recommend this branch at all... food may be good. But if service sucks... nope... never again...

Was so happy to be back here at my favorite grilled cheese restaurant! My mom got the truffle carbonara while I got the classic melt. My order was amazing, no doubt about that. The truffle carbonara was good too but it just lacked a smidgen of salt in my opinion. My mom however found it just right. Can you guys tell how much I love this place??? 3rd review alreadyyyy 128525128514

Good place. Friendly staff.

We dined here just to try the Classic Grilled Cheese, it was okay. Medyo masasawa ka so it's good for sharing.

We just had one problem, we waited for 30mins for our grilled cheese because the waiter forgot to communicate it to the chef. That explains why 3 waiters asked us if we have already ordered, because apparently, the first waiter who took our order did not do his job well. -- at least you'll see the efforts of the staff who kept their eyes on us.

This grilled cheese will restore your faith in humanity. It will send your kids to college. It will resurrect Harambe. It was just that. darn. good. I hate myself for forgetting the name and can't seem to find it on the menu here in Looloo so I guess it hasn't been updated but it did have burrata cheese and shrimp in it with a small side of honey. This place brings tears to my eyes, it's the grilled cheese place of your f*ckin' dreams. 100241002410024

Mushroom truffle carbonara is a must try. Price is reasonable for the truffle pasta. Creamy and flavorful pasta. Highly addicting. 2nd time in Melt Grilled Cheesery in a month for this pasta.

So far, I've tried the Classic grilled cheese which is the one in the picture and it was SUPER good! Just wish it had more honey cause it started getting umay 2/3rds in. Don't order this unless you're really hungry cause it is pretty huge. 128540128076🏻

Nice interiors but price is a bit overpriced. 420 plus service charge for a sandwich. Food is delicious but the service is slow. Took long for a sandwich.

If you are in need of Cheese..... I mean lots of cheese this is the right place to be, they will feed your soul with foodporn worth dishes

From basic sandwich dressed with melted cheese to rice meals that smothered with melted cheese up to carbonara that swim to melted cheese.... almost everything is decorated with melted cheese

The food (4/5, normal but thanks to hefty amount of melted cheese)
Ambiance (4/5 very clean and organized, every table has selfie stick)
Service (4/5)
Wine (2/5 extremely limited option)

My friend got the bacon and cheese melt and it looked awesome haha, guess I'll stick to that and the big buff next time 128522

Holy cheesus! It's cheesy heaven here! Best place to get ultra cheesy 🤣 . We Really enjoyed our sandiwcheeses! Fine I'll stop there. 128517. Seriously, They do live up to their name and they really deliver the flavor! Great mix, combinations too. They honey is an all time fave of mine & I'm glad I can have my fix outside home too! 128523. The tomato soup is a bit too tart for me still but nonetheless, it's good. The mac&cheese appetizer was awesome too. It's didn't fall apart & wasn't that heavy either. Good job, they made my cheesyheart, melt! 🤣128525

I actually thought that their sandwich are overpriced. 128514 My sister got their zbeef Pot Roast for PHP595 but I will be reviewing what I ate.

I got the Bacon Mac and Grilled Cheese for PHP395 and because anything bacon is 128165. It was a huge sandwich and good for sharing. The sandwich is composed of bacon which is maple glazed, three cheese mac, cheese and more cheese, sandwiched in grilled buttered sourdough bread and served with extra maple syrup on the side. Every bite was sooo good hindi mo gugustuhing maubos. I only ate half so I cam eat the other half during the movie. 128514

One server approached me and asked why I didn't finish my food and gave me a sad face. Haha! I said it was delicious that I'd like to have it at the cinema. Ayaw niya pa rin maniwala. Haha. I think this 5 Star rating is enough to convince.

If the other side of BGC seems clogged to you, the uptown area lets you breathe in and explore the place with ease. Here, we find Uptown Mall, another development by Megaworld, a classy and vibrant place to shop to and dine in.

What they offer customers here are a series of new spots with breakthrough concepts. One of them is a haven for cheese lovers called the Melt Grilled Cheesery. They came up with a full blown menu, consisting of a wide number of food options, from appetizers to desserts, with bits or loads of cheese in all of their dishes. What a novelty! This universal dairy with a number of delish variety gets the spotlight in this place.

I got to meet the owners, couple James and Chessie Torres who took pleasure in treating us for lunch last Sunday. I was with some members of my family–three of which are kids, and we all had a blast getting through stretches of cheese. It’s truly a place for everyone.

Let me start by saying that Melt Grilled Cheesery redefined sandwiches. We shared the classic melt and chili con queso sandwiches, which were both attractive and appetizing to try. Their presentation was perfect. The sandwiches were served toasted and warm, and they were packed with ingredients. Simply put, their sandwiches were oozing with goodness.

As for their pasta, I got their creamy linguini with Bolognese sauce, cherry tomato, garlicky confit, and one of my favorite cheeses, which is goat cheese. The noodles were firm and smooth that it can easily slip into your mouth in one slurp. I got to try out their classic take on the baked mac and cheese as well. The kids loved it as much as I do. Expect to taste some saltiness coming from the bacon flavor, and the sweet contrast of honey.

I loved the unique mix of their chicken Alfredo with mushroom rice. The meat was well cooked, and it wasn’t greasy, in spite of it being fried. Their rice was prepared with hints of fresh herbs. Topping it are a combination of cheeses that complemented too well with everything in the bowl.

For the meat lovers, this place has a variety of meats for your own picking. We got to try the slow braised barbecue pork. Despite the meat being a bit on the tough side, the bold taste of the barbecue flavor compensated for what it lacked in tenderness. This dish comes with a number of side item samplers for a balanced meal–buttered corn, violet cabbage, and truffle cream fries.

Finally, we had their Toblerone fondue to cap off our memorable get-together. We were silently giggling as we took the time dipping in our marshmallows and banana and mango slices to their rich Toblerone concoction. We actually drank some of it straight up! It was a fun experience indeed and one for the books.

Though my workplace is in BGC, I don't usually go to Uptown Mall for dinner as it's quite far from Burgos Circle. When my former colleague and I agreed to meet two weeks ago, we decided to try Melt Grilled Cheesery.

I knew this place would satisfy my love for cheese. Who wouldn't want cheese, btw?

** The Classic Melt (275php)
Mozzarella and Cheddar cheese melted between sourdough bread. This was overloaded with cheese as you can see in the picture. This came with chips, though I'm not sure if it's sweet potato or cassava chips, but it tasted really good too. The tomato puree can balance everything. This order is good for two not-so-hungry people, and best eaten while it's still hot.

** Good Morning Chori (365php)
This linguini, cream sauce, chorizo, and paprika combination is packed with flavors. The sunny side egg on top and arugula cherry tomato confit made it all the more instagenic! However, though I found this pasta dish generally okay, it has a weird aftertaste. Maybe because of the chorizo? Not really sure.

We opted to stay outside the restaurant as I think they don't have a nice exhaust. When I entered the restaurant I knew already that the smell of the kitchen will stick to my clothes. It's not a good thing as I still have to go to work. Anyway the servers were attentive and accommodating. They were generally fast especially for water refills. The place looks good too! I particularly like the wooden cutting boards display. 128539

P.S. For additional 30php, you can upgrade your sourdough bread to their premium black bread brioche. 128513
