Toronto’s best Mac n’ Cheese Mac and Cheese is a delight, and whether it’s the most straight-forward classic or a fun twist, it’s hard to disappoint.
1. Bobbie Sue’s _ 162 Ossington Avenue
Bobbie Sue’s in Ossington specializes in takeaway macaroni. They offer Mac n’ Cheese in a variety of flavors and in two portion sizes. They all use cavatappi, from the classic five-cheese blend to bolder creations like blue cheese, Buffalo Chicken hot sauce, and pancetta. They even have vegetarian and gluten free options.
2. Thompson Diner_550 Wellington St West
The signature dish of this 24-hour restaurant attached to the luxury hotel restaurant in Wellington and Bathurst is pasta with truffles. Cavatappi (aka scoobi-doo noodles) are topped with melted Asiago cheese and Cheddar cheese, topped with toasted bread crumbs and a little truffle oil, all served in a small frying pan, great with bacon or crab meat choose.
3. The Gabardine _ 372 Bay Street
Tubular noodles are tossed in a sauce of cheddar, chevre, mozzarella and parmesan (plus a dash of smoked paprika) at this financial district’s favorite restaurant. Crunchy on top is vanilla breadcrumbs. You can also add prosciutto if you like. The portion of this dish is really not small.
4. White Brick Kitchen _ 641 Bloor Street West
Cavatappi is surrounded by four cheeses (provolone, cheddar, mozzarella and a fourth mystery cheese) and dried tomatoes (with the option to add bacon). Mac n’ Cheese is very popular in this casual corner of Koreatown, and is famous for its fried chicken and waffles. The macaroni is also dusted with crunchy Ritz cookie crumbs and served with garlic bread. That’s right, a huge collection of carbs!
5. Victory Cafe_440 Bloor Street West
One of Annex’s most popular hangouts has moved from Markham Street to Bloor, but the pasta is still as good. The colby, gruyere, and cheddar are melted into a sticky sauce that’s mixed with macaroni, caramelized onions, and sun-dried tomatoes. You can choose to order it as a main meal or as a side dish. Serve with garlic bread and a salad for a healthy feel, yes.
6. Harlem Underground_745 Queen St. West
This West Queen West restaurant is known for its African-American and Afro-Caribbean dishes. They specialize in pasta to go with the store’s Southern fried chicken and smoked BBQ chicken. As a main course, you can also choose to add some bacon or turkey to make it even more delicious.
