Anyone who knows me knows I am domestically uninclined in almost every way. I prefer to focus my energy on other areas, that’s all. My skill level in the kitchen is pretty close to the bottom, so I can really appreciate simple classics like the always-tasty dish mac n cheese. When Jennifer and I were in New York for my birthday we went to the best place serving only macaroni and cheese: S’MAC in the East Village.
It was amazing. I mean mouth-watering amazing. You choose your cheese, meat, veggies or whatever toppings you want, then it is served in your own personal iron skillet. There are a few different sizes but we each went for one of the mediums since we were starving. I picked grilled chicken, broccoli and cheddar cheese while Jennifer went for a hamburger/cheddar combo. She said after she ordered she was afraid it would be some version of Hamburger Helper, but it turned out to be really, really good. We couldn’t quite finish our skillets, but ever since we went I’ve been comparing every mac n cheese I’ve had to this and none of them compare. It was by far the best. Now, if only I could do it myself….
