Mac 'n cheese never fails at being a good, comforting meal. Digging your way through the melted cheese into the creamy macaroni is somewhat of a pleasurable experience for us all.
Places serving lip-smacking mac 'n cheese:
Culture Club Cheese in Cape Town - decadent Camembert mac 'n cheese.
Clarkes in Cape Town - served the classic American way.
Mr big Stuff in Johannesburg - try their mac 'n cheese burger.
Flavour Café in Pietermaritzburg - Get your hands on their Cajun crumbed-chicken sandwich, topped with bacon, a 3 cheese mac 'n cheese and barbecue sauce!
Dropkick Murphey's in Durban - they serve incredibly tasty mac 'n cheese deep fried balls.
You may find it surprising that the dish has its origin in England and not The States. It's traditionally served with Béchamal sauce and Cheddar and baked in the oven to get a crispy top. In recent years it's become very trendy especially in millennial hot spots, and in true millennial style its been given many a twist as you will see in the photos below.
Kids love it, adults love it, the golden oldies love it - cheese for the win! One of the easiest meals to prepare if you're in a hurry, even if it's your first time behind the stove!
