Black Cat Bistro (East Lansing, MI)

– “Truffled Mac & Cheese” –

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2

Presentation: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Hey there pretty lady, come here often? Talk about a first impression. Although I cropped this a bit and you can’t quite see the plate, it was a very cool, asymmetrical number. Top that off with the flower garnish, and this is one lovely mac and cheese-wouldn’t you agree?

Flavor: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 
Recently I have learned that truffle oil + mac and cheese = transcendence. This mac (ft. truffle oil) is certainly no exception to my latest flavor rule. Very delicious. 

Creaminess: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Très creamy, as you may be able to see from the photo. The sole complaint I had about the cream sauce was that it was incredibly (even overly) thick and rich – very similar to an Alfredo. In general, I prefer lighter cream sauces, but to each their own. 

Cheesiness: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I will never question a four cheese sauce, especially when parmesan is involved. The menu did not specify which cheeses were specifically used in the mac, but whichever ones they are, they do a bang-up job. 

Overall Experience: 
Aside from the fact that I felt like I was going to burst after I ate this, I loved it. The Black Cat Bistro is a cool place with a great menu, making it an even better place to relish an exquisite macaroni and cheese entrée.
