~ Crispy Mac & Cheese ~

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2

Presentation: ⭐️⭐️⭐️

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.

 

Flavor: ⭐️⭐️⭐️

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.

 

Creaminess: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Definitely creamy, but the sort of elastic creaminess that comes from a larger volume of cheese, and less from a cream sauce.

 

Cheesiness: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

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.

 

Texture: ⭐️⭐️

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!

 

Overall Experience:

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.
