Gone are the days of elbow macaroni covered in lumpy cheese sauce or macaroni and cheese made from a blue box. Many restaurants have promoted mac and cheese and removed it from the children’s menu.
There’s the classic ooey-gooey-cheese macaroni covered in breadcrumbs or a Ritz toppings – an always favourite. Then there’s the decadent mac and cheese with the same elevated quality to satisfy any palate. You can get your mac attacking with crab, truffle, chourico, or a host of other mouthwatering proteins.
