~ Crispy Mac & Cheese ~
What struck me the most about the presentation of this mac was its color – a very bright orange – which was definitely interesting, and more saturated than most. I guess I can’t say whether that was a positive or a negative to me, because while it was perhaps ~engaging~, it also struck me as suspiciously unnatural. Aside from its unique vibrancy, the presentation was pretty average overall.
There was not much flavor apart from that of the five cheeses; I think it could definitely use a bit more of something to jazz up the very mild/salty cheesiness.
Definitely creamy, but the sort of elastic creaminess that comes from a larger volume of cheese, and less from a cream sauce.
Um, wow – the fromage was plentiful. I think that there was enough cheese that it was as if each noodle was separated by a cheesy mortar like a bricks in a wall. This was yet another thing that realistically walked the line between being a good or bad with this mac, though I would place it just inside of good.
Everything had more or less the same mouthfeel, apart from the more crunchy, baked cheese around the edges. Penne was the pasta choice for this mac, which I am never a huge fan of because it tends to quickly lose its firmness when baked. As many do, the menu offers plenty of toppings to add that could assuredly provide different results – if you try some fun toppings, don’t hesitate to send me your personal review!
Pretty middle of the road in terms of the mac. On the other hand, I enjoyed my meal with my fabulous grandmother, which makes any experience great. Table & Tap offers awesome beers and cocktails, in addition to a lovely patio in downtown Flint that makes for a great summer dinner.
