This week, June 11-18, is Tillamook Sandwich Week. I know, why is it not already on your calendar?! To celebrate, Tillamook is hosting its Loaf Love Tour and lucky for us, 5 restaurants in the Bay Area are partaking in it. Here’s the lowdown according to SF Weekly:
The American Grilled Cheese Kitchen
Tillamook signature chef Heidi Gibson is featuring the Mac ‘n’ Cheese Grilled Cheese ($8). In traditional American fashion, they vow to use a different mac ‘n’ cheese each day. According to Heidi, “By [next] Saturday, things should get interesting.” If you want to know ahead of time, check the Twitter feed.
