So yesterday I overdosed on cheese. MASSIVELY.
After months of being nagged by my sister, we finally went to “When Mac Met Cheese“, which is a… oh right – you worked it out for yourself. Nice.
Anyway – for us it was everything we dreamt it would be. Oodles of the pasta tubes covered in what must be the most heart attack inducing types of cheese.
What did we care? We’d trekked (some more than others) to the depths of Queensway, London (which by the way despite being right next to Notting Hill and Holland Park is an utter shite hole) and another ten minute walk from the station – IN THE RAIN I might add to When Mac Met Cheese’s delightful pop-up restaurant. Oh yeah, we had some determination in us alright.
Unfortunately, When Mac Met Cheese will serve its last mouthful of cheesy goodness next Friday 4th July, oh so apt right? – BUT fear not – I grilled (BOOM BOOM) the owner and found out that he plans to open a PERMANENT SITE later in the year in Soho – my beloved, FAVOURITE part of London EVAH – Soho. I can’t wait. I might have to rock up to the soft launch.
See below for glutton ridic. pics that need no words.
Elisha and I pondered over getting the Mum’s Classic alongside the Cheesy Green Afro as we weren’t sure about the addition of mushy peas and fish fingers – the owner told us it had been one of their most popular specials. We thought what the heck it’s something different. It was really nice but as we were eating it was clear to see which dish was the clear favourite – especially when I had to remind Elisha that she kept eating the Cheesy Afro and that we were supposed to be SHARING the dishes…
By the way – deep fried oreos. Whaaaaaaaat? It’s a THING.
Clockwise: Two macancinis (truffle and wild mushroom, jalapeño and cheddar), Fish Finger Mac & Cheese, Cheesy Green Afro
