Best Mac n Cheese is in Bronx and made by Mexicans

driggs | Jan 24, 201302:47 PM     7

Curiosity drove me inside. What the hell was a Macaroni and cheese take out joint, and why was it in the South Bronx. I wasn't expecting much.

What I got was some of the best Mac n Cheese I have had. Almost burnt on the top but creamy on the inside. Each take out serving (Small or Medium) is carefully prepared, then packaged with two forks and put in a box. There are 7 or so varieties, from plain old 4 cheeses to Mexican.

I have had pretty much all of them, but prefer the Vegetarian (mushrooms and broccoli) and the Mexican (Spicy with ground beef).

Landin Macaroni & Cheese (705 Melrose Ave) is run by Sergio Sanchez and his two sons. He has lived in NY for fifteen years, having immigrated from Morelia Mexico.

When I asked him "what the hell is a Mexican guy doing making Mac n Cheese?" he replied, "I am always thinking. Always have ideas. I have worked in kitchens all my life and wanted a different place. I love Macaroni and Cheese."

Not many folks go to the Bronx. I do for my work so am happy to have a place to stop by on way home.

I also love they don't have a large serving. Just medium and small.
