Grater Grilled Cheese Expands With Second Location Now Open In La Jolla

June 23, 2016

It started out as a food truck with a gooey dream and now there is two brick-and-mortar locations! Grater Grilled Cheese Bistro has opened their second San Diego branch, expanding from their Mission Valley location to a new storefront at 723 Pearl Street in La Jolla. In addition to grilled cheeses, the new Grater location will offer a full menu including deli sandwiches, salads, fries, soups and more.

Headed by chef Gaston Corbalá and his wife Natalie Garin, Grater is a family-run business that started as GreenGo Food Truck specializing in gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches and their popular lobster fries. Now with locations in La Jolla and Mission Valley, as well as their roaming food truck, Grater has plans to extend their concept throughout California. The sandwiches are constructed with a grated five-cheese blend and various ingredients held between fresh baked bread. Their best seller is the Puerto-Nuevo lobster grilled cheese with fried Pacific lobster, snow crab, and ale-chipotle aioli.

Grater Grilled Cheese Bistro is located at 723 Pearl Street in La Jolla and 5618 Mission Center Rd #1002 in Mission Valley. For more information, visit
