Sighting: Turophilia

As I walked to the Yelp party at Soho Sushi, I spotted a gleaming Airstream trailer in the parking lot across from Jean-Robert’s table. I should have taken a picture in bright sunlight, but instead I walked by after dark and grabbed this shot.  Even in the street light, the shiny aluminum is blinding. “How long has that trailer been here?” I asked the valet. “Oh, a couple of days.”

So, welcome, Cincinnati, to Turophilia, which translates from Latin to mean “lover of cheese”. Appropriate, no? They make “eclectic quesadillas”, including:

The Bobby Woo: A sushi inspired dilla. Shrimp, avocado, wasabi-rice, cream cheese, monterey jack and topped off with spicy mayo!! MMM..delish!

The Black Keys: Because it rocks that much! Pesto, black olives, artichokes, onion, garlic-oil blend, mozzarella, and goat cheese. Add jalapeno for a lil’ more rock!

TY’s Cheesesteak: Marinated top round roast beef, red peppers, onion, garlic, white cheddar and monterey jack cheeses, and topped off with cilantro cream sauce.

Their only website is a Facebook person page (as opposed to a business page) and no hours are given.
