Restaurant Review: When Mac Met Cheese

I had wanted to visit When Mac Met Cheese for absolutely aaaaages. For starters, I'm fairly certain that mac and cheese is pretty much one of the best things that has ever been created. And on top of this, I tend to really like pop ups. Unfortunately for me, WMMC is the other side of London and isn't open on my one free day, Sunday, so it has taken me a long time to be able to get there. But finally, (after what ended up being a three hour bus journey because of some cycle thing) on Saturday I was able to get there to try it out.

As I'm sure you expect, it's a simple concept. They sell mac and cheese. And deep fried Oreos. But mostly mac and cheese.

I went with 'Mum's Classic' which includes mature cheddar, red leicester, parmesan and nutmeg. It was pretty much cheese overload which really set off the fact that I'm not actually supposed to eat dairy - but it was also most definitely worth it! There were a lot of strong flavours in my little box, and it tasted great.

However, the winner? I made my friend go with the weekly special, which was a fish pie variant including smoked haddock, garden peas, chives and a crispy egg. And it was so. good. to the extent that I ended up sneaking multiple spoon fulls. I would absolutely recommend this dish and could have eaten about six more boxes of it without being satisfied - but unfortunately, as it is the weekly special it has now been replaced! Though this week it is the turn of a roast chicken, cauliflour and gravy mac & cheese which still sounds at the very least intriguing!

If you like your mac & cheese or want to try some unique variants, then definitely check it out. When Mac Met Cheese is in Bayswater until July 4th so check it out when you can! For the rest of the information you can check out their facebook, here.

  3. This sounds amazing! I absolutely adore Mac'n'Cheese, but like you I'm not supposed to eat dairy. Craving it now though - I've adapted a recipe which uses a lot less dairy so I might have to go and make it! x
