Mitchell’s Fish Market (Lansing, MI)

– “Lobster Mac + Cheese” –

Rating: ⭐️⭐️1/2 

Presentation: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I think this mac is pretty well put together. With a nice touch of color and a pretty symmetrical presentation, I would say it definitely passes the beauty test.

Flavor: ⭐️⭐️ 
From the presentation of the dish, I expected it to be pretty tasty. Unfortunately, this mac was incredibly bland. Not much going on at all in the flavor department.

Creaminess: ⭐️⭐️
Little to no creaminess in this mac and cheese. It was incredibly dry; even on the bottom there was strikingly little cream sauce. I would say it even felt like I was eating plain pasta at times. I was definitely disappointed. 

Cheesiness: ⭐️
The cheesiness was surprisingly subpar as well. The menu says that the mac uses gouda cheese, which should certainly be easy to pick out; I would never have guessed it to be gouda had I not read the menu. The scant amount of cream sauce in the bottom of the dish was fairly cheesy, and would’ve greatly improved the mac, had there been more.  

Overall Experience: 
Surprisingly poor. I wouldn’t have expected it from Mitchell’s, so it was fairly disappointing. Not only was the mac itself not so great, but the lobster was stringy and old tasting. Hopefully the mac I got was just having an off day, but if it wasn’t, Mitchell’s may want to give it some serious TLC.
