What’s your ultimate comfort food? For me, it’s Mac + Cheese.
As a kid, I’d get my Mom to make me the classic KD and I’d go to town with it. It was awesome and it was tasty and it was messy. But compared to these three spots in Toronto, KD looks like child’s play!
Over a dozen Mac + cheese options are available at Mak-A-Tak. Here, you can add several types of cheese, including smoked mozzarella, bocconcini and havarti. If that wasn’t enough, you can also top your Mac + Cheese with pulled jerk chicken, pull lamb shank and BBQ beef brisket. Take the Porcomania for example. It’s loaded with a 3 cheese blend, béchamel sauce, pulled pork and purple slaw.
The Mac + Cheese at The Carbon Bar is easily one of the most popular dishes. The béchamel sauce here is mixed with Gruyère, aged cheddar, mozzarella, home-made chipotle, onions and garlic with a dash of parsley and covered in bread crumbs. Well, you can understand why it’s so popular. This bad boy is rich, creamy and really delicious!
So the Mac + Cheese at Prohibition Gastrohouse is kinda ridiculous. Imported Vesuvio noodles are combined with a four-cheese blend, then kicked up a notch with black truffles, herbs and truffle oil. Oh and let’s not forget about the jalapeño-cheddar biscuit crust. One bite and you’ll be as hooked as I am.
Did I miss one? Let me know where YOU go for Mac+Cheese.
