I recently accepted that macaroni and cheese is my most favorite food. This is sad because I love all kinds of food... but I went to visit my grandma for the first time in 15 yrs last year, and the second thing out of her mouth was, Do you still like macaroni and cheese?
Funny part of that story is we were sitting at an applebees and I had a plate of their macaroni and cheese in front of me! I realized I don't have to be ashamed anymore, this is my favorite thing in the world and while my palate has definitely grown since I was a 12 year old kid, for example, gruyere and swiss and crispy bacon can take the dish to new heights.
So I am starting this thread to find out, where should I go to start my tour de mac and cheese here in Austin? I actually really like Pluckers with the spicy ranch and bacon added when I am feeling super fancy aka hungover, but what other places should I check out? Thanks for listening and now I am hungry.
PS: I accept recipes! I make a new recipe every year for christmas, and found a spicy one I like. Haven't reached that level of perfection yet though :)
