If your sandwich maker was (or is) a George Foreman or a Breville then you’ll be familiar with the scalding a cheese toastie can give to the top of your mouth. So the next time you have an impatient craving - it’s so delicious, but also painful - think about heading to Morty & Bob’s in King’s Cross instead. Their grilled cheese sandwiches are some of London’s finest. The classic involves cheddar, Gruyère, and healthy handful of chopped onions.
