Grilled Cheese at the Brooklyn Flea

August 9, 2010

J and I went to the Brooklyn Flea at One Hanson in Fort Greene, looking for inspiration for our new home (we moved!). It’s very cool how you can see the bank features in the space, like the huge vault doors and high domed ceilings. Still, something about the space feels a bit off for the Flea. I preferred it under the Brooklyn Bridge.

While we were there, we decided to get some grilled cheese sandwiches from a vendor we’d never seen before, Milk Truck. J got the classic grilled cheese with tomato (boring), and I got the classic “with a twist” (made with Aged Wisconsin Gruyere, Champagne Pickled Onions & Whole Grain Mustard on Jewish Rye). Both were sub-par. We also got a chocolate-cherry milkshake which was terrible… we could barely get it up the straw because it was so thick. However, I wouldn’t write this place off. It seemed like the man behind the counter was frazzled beyond belief — we watched him make our “milkshake” and forget to add the milk. Thus, we had a blended cup of ice cream. Maybe it was just an off day? Have you had a better experience?
