We all have our favourite junk foods, and macaroni and cheese seems to be a guilty pleasure for so many of us. There is something about gooey cheese that makes everything in life just a little bit better. We are lucky to have some delicious restaurants in Montreal that serve even more epic mac and cheese dishes.
Whenever I'm sad, I crave macaroni and cheese that doesn’t come from a box. I don’t know what it is about the combined ingredients of gooey goodness that give me a certain comfort, but I've accepted that it's my go-to when I'm feeling down.
Throughout Montreal, I have tried quite a lot of mac and cheese dishes and have narrowed down my personal favourite to 10 spots, even though there are many more than these 10!
Each of the restaurants included on the list has found a unique way of making the meal. Some establishments stick to the classic and loved macaroni and melted cheese, while other eateries have pushed the limits.
Some of the decadent dish options include mac and cheese with minced meat, buffalo chicken, and even meatballs. Some other restaurants have added bacon or have even stuffed the mac into a won ton and fried it to perfection.
All of these carb-infused menu options can be found right here in our city. So, instead of complaining about the cold, why not warm up with this hearty and delightful dish?
