Last night, my friend and I went on a quest to find the Grilled Cheese Truck in Pasadena. We failed miserably. I'm not sure how we missed a bright orange truck, but after circling CalTech twice, we gave up and decided to try The Hat (no pun intended). Although I'm more of a Philippe's french dip kinda gal, I had to taste The Hat's famous pastrami, which, judging from the countless framed newspaper clippings, rivals Langer's Deli. The pastrami was great. A quintessential man's sandwich. A manwich. This rings true especially since we were outnumbered by crowds of trucker-esque men. And we got our grilled cheese, too!
