Early Report: Rebel Bite in Long Beach

Anyone can make a grilled cheese at home. Then there's Rebel Bite, a new restaurant in Long Beach that began as a food truck (now retired), where a grilled cheese might be loaded with marinated beef, caramelized onions, pickled cabbage, Bolognese sauce, and cheddar. Whew. Chowhound ligeroh was blown away by the Karl B. Marx Melt (previously described, pictured above) and the Fungi Formaggi Melt, with shiitakes, caramelized onions, and blue and cheddar cheeses. No word on the pizzas and pastas, though they look every bit as mammoth as the sandwiches.
