Cheezy Goodness at Mac Shack
Who doesn't like Mac N Cheese? We've all been there, chowing down on the 99 cent box of KD during university. Fortunately, this is NOT that type of Mac N Cheese. For one thing, it's not made from a powder, and it's not the crazy orange that you get after being in the fake and bake just a tad too long.
We had a kid with us on this taste test, so his meal was the Mini Mac with a side of milk/juice/water. We picked milk...moo! And all this for only $6 and it comes with a freshly baked cookie too! Great deal for children!
We decided to go for the Bacon Cheeseburger, easily my all-time favourite pizza choice. So instead of being in a pie, it's baked into some macaroni?! As you can see from the image above, their macaroni are curly AND grooved! All the better to hang onto the sauce! Loaded with ground beef, cheddar and bacon, this was really good. Lots of cheddar on top and a handful of bacon too. I didn't think there was enough cheese, but that's a personal preference, I guess. I do like how it comes piping hot from the oven though.
We also got The Royale, or now renamed The Ultimate, which has tons of protein, with bacon, chicken, chorizo and shrimp mingling with peppers, broccoli and mushrooms in a gooey sauce of mozzarella and gruyere cheese. There's not much colour to the sauce, but there's definitely flavour. The chorizo slices and shrimp give a nice balance of salty and sweet, and the chicken and bacon are great for texture.
