The Melt

One of the newest restaurant locations to the Stanford Shopping Center, The Melt, brings a quick and easy place to grab lunch. It's a 5 x 5 menu: 5 combos, 5 sandwiches, 5 soups, 5 desserts, 5 drinks.

My favorite is The Mission, a Jalapeño Pepper Jack on Sourdough sandwich with a Sweet Corn Tortilla soup. The soup is creamy and full of flavor. The sandwich has a kick, not only is it made with jalapeño pepper jack cheese but it gets a sprinkle of jalapeño dust after being grilled. If you need something more added to your sandwich, you can add tomato or bacon, free of charge.

They aren't just a lunch/dinner restaurant, they also offer a breakfast menu consisting of egg-in-a-hole, waffles and cinnamon-raisin bread. I haven't had a chance to try breakfast there yet, but it is on my list.

Online ordering is a cinch too. Place your order online, print out your QR code, skip the line and scan it once you arrive. They won't make it until you scan, ensuring a fresh, hot meal.

The Melt is also an environmentally friendly restaurant.
"THE MELT also aims to be one of the most eco-friendly fast casual restaurant businesses in the country by only using plastic-free and independently BPI-certified compostable packaging. From soup cups to sandwich wraps, THE MELT packaging is made from 100 percent post-consumer recycled paper, contains no bleach or other toxic chemicals, and is lined with a plant-based PLA rather than polyethylene. This approach helps THE MELT offset carbon emissions associated with the manufacturing and transportation of all packaging, reduces landfill waste, and saves thousands of trees every year. Additionally, the restaurants are being designed by the James Beard Award-winning hospitality and architecture firm AvroKO, and are made entirely of recycled materials from the walls to the floors."
