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)

Went back to melt cos my friend wanted to try it out. This time I got the Thermidor melt; it was good but I was expecting more shrimp or lobster in the sandwich. Also tried the chorizo balls and it was just meh for me.
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

Cheese cheese and more cheese. Been dying to drop by this place for the longest time because who can resist the oozing cheese their grilled cheese promises, and they did not fail. No, not at all.

I just like the classic for me. Grilled cheese with tomato puree on the side. First, the kamote chips are perfectly crispy and tasty. It's not too salty but a little sweet to be honest. It's the kind you would want to grab a bag of. The grilled cheese delivered as promise. Oozing cheese in toasted sourdough, the perfect combo for a great grilled cheese. Honey is drizzled on top of it to make it even perfect. I love the toasted bread but a little chewy at the middle where the cheese sits perfectly. The tomato puree is love because it's sourness removes that umay flavor of the grilled cheese.

My friends had Big Buff and Bacon Mac and Cheese. The big buff is stuffed with chicken, red bell pepper and cheese making it really big. Like literally! The spice the other ingredient brings lowers the saltiness of the cheese but nevertheless still gooey. The Bacon Mac is one big cheese haven right there. But it can be overwhelming and half of the sandwich is already enough to make you full.

I like the place and the friendly staff. For grilled cheese lovers, or just cheese alone, this is heaven for you!

I was curious enough to try this place out and although they offer other dishes, I tried their mac and cheese grilled sandwich.

What greeted me on the plate was actually 2 sandwiches with sweet potato chips and a side of maple syrup.

To be honest, the sandwich was just ok. Yes the cheese was gooey and creamy... but if you'll have just that, it would be too boring. So you have to add some honey to "spice things up".

Having to pay almost P400 is not worth it for this sandwich though 128533

After going around metro manila last weekend, we decided to have early dinner at uptown mall. It'll be my mom and sister's first time there too. Been a few weeks since my last visit and a couple of more restos have opened up but for that day we decided to try Melt.
I've always loved grilled cheese sandwiches and would even make them myself when I was a kid. So when I heard about the place that specializes in grilled cheese sandwiches, I immediately put it on my to do list!
We arrived at around 5PM which is yeah really early for dinner but it was ok 128522 we tried 3 kinds of their savory sandwiches - the bacon Mac and cheese, the Monte Cristo and the big buff. We also got an order of their butternut squash soup.
Service was great. There's even a selfie stick you can use to take pics and some props too!
Food arrived within 15 minutes and they were kind enough to cut it into 5 parts without us asking. Galing!
The Monte Cristo and bacon Mac and cheese came with maple syrup on the side. I think it really rounded off and complemented the sandwich well. The big buff on the other hand had blue cheese on the side. All of the sandwiches were served on a bed of sweet potato chips.
Food was great, really filling and servings were huge! I'm glad we came in as a group cos if it were just hubby and me, we would be umay soon.
Would like to try the roast beef next time!

Classic Grilled cheese was yummy. Not the best grilled cheese for me but their version is pretty good. Though really thick, I still liked the crunchy toasted bread. But of course, it would be so much better if the bread was a tiny bit thinner. 128517 The cheese added was not too much and it wasn't that strong so there was no umay factor. The tiny tomato soup (or sauce) on the side was a bit bitin. 128546

Curiosity kills the cat, but disappoints the Maus! (that's me hehe)
I was extremely excited to try Melt, and ordered their Beefy Chili Rice (first pic) and Beef Pot Roast. Was expecting to be overwhelmed by loads and loads of cheese but wasn't 128528 the serving was quite small (well, just enough for one per order), cheese was subtle, taste was good (but i am so underwhelmed by the lack of ooey goeey cheese 128557128557128557)
Looked over at the table beside us and gloated over their melted cheese-filled sandwiches... 128513

After trying Harry's Cafe, I went down to Uptown Mall and proceeded to Melt Grilled Cheesery which is located at the third floor veranda of the mall. 🧀

The staff greeted me and introduced me to their menu. I said that I want something light because I just had hotdog and I will meet my friend and have lunch after. 🧀

He said that I should try their bestseller Melt's Mac and Cheese Bars. For Php240.00 I got one. While waiting the staff arranged my table and asked me if I need anything after he served water. 128077🏼

The Melt's Mac and Cheese Bars arrived... 6 pieces fried Mac and Cheese Bars served with Sour Cream and Honey. The aroma smells good, I thought it's just an ordinary cheese sticks but its not... and it's not light... Each bar is very rich, flavorful and heavy. I like the honey dip much compare to sour cream, there's a tendency to become salty. 128521

After a not so good experience in Salvatore Cuomo, my |ooloo friends and I decided to go to Melt.

Melt Grilled Cheesery has an open kitchen, simple interiors and an overall modern-cozy feel. They offer pasta dishes, some appetizers, soups, salads, entrees, desserts and the star of the place - GRILLED CHEESE sandwich. They have a total of ten grilled cheese sandwiches in their menu, both sweet and savory.

We decided to try the following --

Mushroom Truffle Pasta with Parma Ham for 460Php

I am a big fan of truffle anything so it was automatic for me to order this. The pasta was al dente, the truffle cream sauce was rich and had just the right kick of that addictive truffle oil taste. Adding Parma Ham makes it more expensive but tell me, how can you resist Prosciutto and it's salty savory goodness? Loved this pasta!

Monte Cristo Grilled Cheese Sandwich for 390Php

I would love to love this sandwich because of all the right ingredients that it has - a medley of cheeses which was Melt's house blend, Parma ham, scrambled eggs, sourdough french toast - but then again something was missing. I loved that the cheese was gooey and the french toast had a good form but there wasn't enough Parma ham so it wasn't as savory as I would have wanted it to be. I wished they used some other kind of ham for a hefty meat serving instead of the expensive Parma ham. The sandwich came in with a side serving of maple syrup which was a little too sour than sweet. Maybe honey would be a better option.

Dulce De Leche Cheesecake for 235Php per slice

This slice of cheesecake was a piece of heaven! The crust was made of biscuits, resembling our childhood favorite Marie, instead of the usual graham. The cheesecake was soft towards the center because it has a lot of dulce de leche in it making it sinfully sweet, which was fine by me. You'll get a good sample of the cheesecake itself without too much dulce de leche when you scoop some towards the side. Rich, creamy and really good, something worth coming back for!

Our visit was overall good. I just hope that they'll do something about the flies in their restaurant. I know it's a common problem among Uptown Place Mall restaurants but then again, flies kill the ambiance.
