Mac’s menu is very simple – yes, you guessed it, macaroni and cheese!!   London was in for a cheesy treat at ‘The Shop NW10′ last night and Sammy Shonn’s (founder of Mac met Cheese) judgement day had arrived…

love you:  I love the simplicity of Mac’s menu –  3 simple dishes to choose from – no if’s no but’s.   My favourite dish was Carlos the Cactus – mature cheddar, parmesan, mozzarella and jalapenos.   The flavours worked really well together and I loved the spicy kick at the end of each bite.   We added cherry tomatoes to our dish which gave the dish a sweet complement to the cheese and spice.

Portions are generous and affordable at £6.  Having a gluten-free option is a great value add for those that want to feel like they are weirdly trying to be carb free without compromising on enjoying the cheese.  Sammy’s girls, othewise known as his staff were all very friendly.

We finished off with deep fried oreos which we were very curious about and to our delight was delicious!  Be warned that one serving (if not, half) is plenty, we couldn’t finish ours as it is quite intense especially after eating macaroni and cheese.

leave you:  I found the ‘Cheesy Green Afro’ (Vintage stilton, Mozzarella, Broccoli)  too cheesy.  I love blue cheese but with the macaroni it just wasn’t enough to pack a punch, which resulted in the stilton leaving the macaroni with a very mellow flavour; perhaps outweighed by the mozzarella.  I love the idea of broccoli with macaroni, however, the broccoli disintegrated into the dish so it was hard to separate the vegetable from the macaroni.    Synonymous with pop ups and first time launches,  it was quite a wait to be seated and served which was forgiving considering it was Sammy’s first big event.  I expect this will change as Mac continues to make their way around London.

Sammy, thank you for having us – we wish you all the best with your cheesy venture – dream big and continue to change the world one macaroni at a time…
