Tuck into a tasty cheese toastie: Grill My Cheese
When it comes to toasties oozing with cheesy yumminess, it just doesn’t get better than Grill My Cheese. Their menu might be simple, but their sandwiches are scrumptious. In every toastie you’ll find a signature blend of artisan cheese on organic sourdough bread, plus you can choose to add an array of tasty homemade fillings. If this sounds like your kinda thing, you can find Grill My Cheese at Leather Lane Market on Tuesday through to Friday and the South Bank Christmas Market over the festive season.
