When you add color to something it always tastes better. Case in point, check out the latest internet sensation – the rainbow toastie (a.k.a. the rainbow grilled cheese).
This genius invention was created by Kala Toas in Hong Kong. What what makes up this beautiful cheesy goodness? In a post, Hong Kong-based food blogger @hkfoodiexblogger explained that the grilled cheese contains four different cheeses and each color consists of a different flavor:
The toast costs $42 HKD [$6 USD] and those coloured cheese are lavender (blue), basil (green), tomato (red) and the yellow one is actually the combination of 4 kinds of cheese (mozzarella, cheddar, emmental, and gruyere). The toast was crispy but I reckon both the flavour of the lavender and tomato were subtle. The basil flavour was the most outstanding one comparatively but the cheese flavour was still not as strong as my expectation. It was also a bit oily in general. I would say the quality was rather average but we all cannot deny that it is photogenic.
Sounds like it’s time to take a trip over to Hong Kong.
