Brooklyn Mac: Just Break Your New Years Resolution Already
So remember that awesome coffee place CUP, you guys? Wellllll, guess what just opened up literally next door? A MOTHER EFFING MAC AND CHEESE PLACE called Brooklyn Mac. They name all of their mac and cheeses after different Brooklyn neighborhoods, and they have 3 different sizes– which really just answers the question: “What kind of gluttonous pig will I be today?”
Just to give you an idea of what the hell we are exactly dealing with, I’ve tried both the “Williamsburg” and “Bensonhurst” macs– the former has sauteed mushrooms, scallions, and mozzarella, while the latter has spinach, mushrooms, ricotta, and mozzarella. Both were great, but I prefer the Bensonhurst. They also have a selection of meat toppings, vegan and gluten-free options, AND if you like that sort of thing, they can add an egg on top for an extra $2.
Mac and cheese purists might be shaking their heads in disgust right now, but guess what? You can customize your own, and the King’s Country one is just American cheese (sorry, but, ew) and cheddar. I don’t know who you think you’re fooling, aside from yourself, because you know you want some mac and cheese. If you want to not be as crazy, you can also get salads there, which are aight, I guess. Oh, and they also have an unprecedented selection of good drinks like Reed’s Ginger beer and some Korean drink that I can’t remember the name of that this one girl was going crazy over for like 5 minutes while I was waiting for my Bensonhurst.
