It should come as no surprise that a grilled cheese sandwich courtesy of the fine cheese mavens at Cowgirl Creamery is a truly excellent one. While Cowgirl Creamery Sidekick, their cafe-style counter at the Ferry Building, has many delicious, dairy-centric options, it's hard to order anything other than the grilled cheese of the day.
The sandwich changes daily, depending on available ingredients and the whims of its creators. A recent combination featured three cheeses: sottocenere (Italian truffle cheese), Cowgirl Wagonwheeel, and Pecorino Romano, pressed on thick slices of Acme sourdough loaf ($7). The sandwich, while rich, was surprisingly ungreasy—it had none of the grilled-cheese-glisten. The three cheeses worked together remarkably well; the truffle flavor was present throughout, but didn't dominate the cheeses' rich creaminess. The sandwich was prepared in a panini press of sorts, but the Acme bread still remained thick and fluffy.
