The Four Best Spots for Mac 'n' Cheese in Brisbane
The goo has gone gourmet.
April 30, 2015
Once a lazy comfort food saved for cold evenings of sneaky indulgence, the humble mac 'n' cheese is moving up in the world, now savoured as a prime and novel dish on any menu worth its cheddar. We've found the best places to enjoy this old favourite in public. Please, no track pants.
Now a well-known go-to for any comforting Americana-inspired dining experience, South Side Diner do indeed offer mac 'n' cheese. Better yet, it's the fancy kind, with green peas, leafy spinach and goat's cheese. What's more, you can wander over to the Diner on a cool Monday evening and indulge in their two-for-one offering, making this a delicious option for lazy weeknight comfort dining.
If you're looking to place a fine dining spin on your favourite cheesy dish, you can do just that at The Hilton. Don your finest duds and make a reservation to enjoy their mac and cheese with preserved truffles. This means you will get the primo truffle taste as you break through that sweet, stringy melted cheese. Extra napkins may be required if you want to maintain the high-class charade.
Sometimes the best cheesy pasta meal doesn't have to be the main star of your dining experience. Deep down, yes, you know it's your favourite, but why settle for one dish when you can pair it with a deeply indulgent NY-style burger at Red Hook? Their mac and cheese squares happily complement other mains on the menu, allowing you to enjoy the greater greasy experience.
Of course the already-impressive menu at Sixes has a mac and cheese offering. While this particular dish comes as a side, the additions of gruyere and smoked cheddar make for a pretty sophisticated take on old-style comfort food. You'll get a complex nutty, semi-sweet taste in among the many types of cheese, which in itself is something to be pretty excited about.
