Say grilled cheese!

Another grilled cheese food truck coming to town via The Cheese Gypsy


The Cheese Gypsy is rollin’ into Halifax this spring—May 1 to be exact. Owners Mike Rossi and Robin Kelly have been planning the truck for years, but started making real moves this year. “We finally pulled the trigger last fall,” says Rossi.

The couple has been together for over 15 years. Rossi says Kelly is the “head of operations” when it comes to the food truck.

The Cheese Gypsy will be hitting up spots, “from Dartmouth to Peggy’s Cove,” with a bunch of stops in Halifax says Rossi. On afternoons and weekends the truck will roam over to Peggy’s Cove to fry up some greasy goodness, seaside.

On the menu: anything from lobster and cheddar to roast beef and double creme brie, melted between select artisan breads—all ingredients locally sourced. You'll be able to dunk your grilled sammie in Cheese Gypsy’s rustic tomato soup, or have a soup shot on the side.

Why grilled cheese, one might ask? Because “everyone loves cheese"; Rossi says choosing his favourite is like “asking someone which is the favourite child,” you just can’t.
