” Mac-N-Cheese “
Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️ 1/2
This isn’t some fancy, city slicker mac & cheese – this here is hardworking folk that’s here to get the job done. Melted cheese covered the outside of the cup in a way that I’d ordinarily consider sloppy, but with the still bubbling cheese and a bit of steam, it simply registered as warming to the toes. Nothing here purports to be something it’s not.
Mildly cheesy with a buttery undertone and nip of pepper, this mac had a pretty classic diner/side mac flavor that I’m certain you can conjure up with ease. In other words, it tasted precisely as you’d expect it to.
Exactly as it should be; silky and smooth. If you order a mac like this and it’s dry and/or lumpy, it’s cancelled. This is the kind of mac you should be able to depend on, trust with your life, put down as your emergency contact; creaminess is a cornerstone.
Cheesiness: ⭐️⭐️⭐️ 1/2
Mild, cheddary, and plenty of stringy cheese pulls.
Definitely falls into the “soft foods you can eat after oral surgery” category, alongside applesauce and scrambled eggs. There’s no textural diversity here, but I’ll say it again: you know exactly what you’re getting when a mac and cheese like this gets set in front of you.
Sides vary quite a bit in function, size, and overall quality; this mac is a good archetype of what you’d generally expect when you order one. Cafe Eclectic has great food, and if you’re looking for a bite of comforting mac to warm you up on a colder day, the mac & cheese has you covered.
