Kappacasein, is located on top Stoney St, you need to get in there quick as it attracts long queues for both their two dishes. Money is collected whilst in the queue in exchange for a raffle ticket. Once it’s your turn you wait for your toastie £7 to be prepared by the staff. In the glass cabinet, you see the pile of grated cheese, tiny diced up onions and slices of sourdough bread. All ready to be placed in the sandwich grill, old dried melted cheese can be visibly seen all over the dials.
Receiving the toastie, you notice the thin sourdough bread being toasted until golden brown, chopped onions, and dried melted cheese stuck on the outside. The cheeses smell very strong along with the small onion pieces. The cheese toastie is made up of montgomery cheddar, onions, leeks, garlic in Poilâne sourdough bread. The taste, it is on the top scale as being ultimate cheesy, one of the cheeses is so pungent that lingers in your mouth, the onions are also strong. A bite into the toastie and strings of cheese pulls between the teeth and bread, sourdough thin bread is also extra crispy.
