OM Grilled Cheese

Controversial grilled cheese joint gets a fresh start

OM Grilled Cheese wants to restore Kensington Market's faith in nostalgic, gooey pressed cheese sandwiches. The new shop replaces The Grilled Cheese, which shuttered earlier this year amidst allegations that staff were owed hundreds of dollars in unpaid wages and received threatening text messages when they tried to collect.

Despite sticking to the same genre of food, new owners Mark Andrade (ex-Greenwood Smokehouse) and Oscar Cabrera (not the former Blue Jays pitcher) want to distance themselves from the old place.

They've introduced a new menu featuring sandwiches like the The Lord Cheesus loaded with cheddar, brie, brick, havarti and mozzarella. Another dubbed Wine Country incorporates a mix of cheeses with guava jam, pickled onions, grapes and serrano ham.

Pickles and chips still come with each order - and you can still have your sandwich delivered to Ronnie's. Expect prices to range between $7 and $12.
