Sacramento - Mac & Cheese

Bekah Jan 29, 2008 03:45 PM

Anyone know where I can get some good Mac & Cheese in Sacramento?

I've tried the Jack's Urban Eats version and it was not that great. I found it really dry and reminiscent of the Kraft powered cheese kind.

Help! I'm going through withdrawals....

Thank you!

    Plaza Hof Brau? Never had it but I do know they have it. And it looks good. Looks like the traditional cheddar cheese baked version.

        I really like the Mac & Cheese at Sandra Dee's in Midtown.

          Bella Bru has a mac-n-cheese "gratine" on their winter menu in Natomas. I have had it twice...so rich and creamy!

          California Cafe at Arden Fair has excellent mac & cheese, really rich and creamy, and their bread is addictive.

            Boudin SF at the Loehmann's Plaza has a Dungeness Crab Macaroni & Cheese that sounds interesting, but I have not made it over there yet.

              It is really good and the crab makes it decadent but it is not as creamy as traditional mac and cheese.

                I was running late this week and picked up Macaroni & Cheese from Taylor's Market in their premade dinner section. It was VERY creamy with a light cheese flavor. There was a little seasoning that also perked up the taste buds with penne pasta as the base. All in all, a very good M&C - but not traditional elbows and cheddar.

                    It could have been. Nugget also sells a pre-made macaroni & cheese. Their pre-made stuff is usually top notch.
