Best Mac and Cheese in Vancouver

I've been craving mac and cheese for the past week. Where is a good place for some gourmet mac and cheese in Vancouver?

^ 4 cheese blend
Bread crumbs on top
Baked in the oven
Crisp top layer when it comes out

Adding lobster or crab meat also compliments it


And thats what makes it gourmet....people suddenly think KD when they hear about Mac and cheese

Exactly. Just because it's easy to prepare and come in microwaveable bowls, doesn't mean it can't be made gourmet. Why do you think bars/pub grub joints serve mac and cheese? They obviously don't make them using KD.

Shitty service too.

I'm a fan of the Mac and Cheese at Burgoo though, expensive but oh so cheesy

My own words..

The Mac Shack hasn’t really received great reviews since the opening two months ago. The talk has been mainly negative, and to be honest it hasn’t really given me that urge to come for repeat visits. That’s the most important factor for restaurants, the repeat customers. ...

Overall, I feel that the Mac & Cheese’s can be .. well, more cheesy. It feels cheap and skimpy if the cheese doesn’t cover the entire surface, let alone mixed up amongst the pasta themselves

Is it just weird if people add ketchup to their mac and cheese?

I've seen people mix in some savage ingredients: mustard, sriracha, chips, wieners, mcnuggets, steak, refried beans, peas, etc, etc. You're good man.

RE: Mac Shack
That's what I figured. A couple of friends went there and thought it was pretty good and found it cheap (?)..I always believe the opposite of what people I know say about restaurants and food now.

Damn, Mac Shack looked promising.

Boston Pizza actually has pretty good pasta imo..but by no means am I a pasta snob or anything. As a teenaged male, I'll eat anything.

Stay. The. Hell. Away. from Mac Shack. One of the biggest restaurant letdowns I've ever had.
You're better off making KD.

I got a free coupon from them for being one of their first 1000 followers on twitter

Free is always better than $16 before taxes

Ok.

First for pasta you want to use something that either

a) is macaroni

b) a macaroni with ridges.

2) the sauce.

1 liter 2% milk
2/3 cup of butter
2/3 flour
6 eggs
Shredded aged cheddar
Shredded Smoked Gouda (don't cheap out get the real stuff not the simulated smoke)
Shredded blue cheese (for bite)
Parmasen if you want.
shredded bacon + bacon grease.
paprika + nutmeg

Melt the butter in a sauce pan over medium heat. Whisk in the flour and heat it up until it turns into what looks like shredded garlic. After that remove from heat, and slowly whisk in milk fucking slowly, when the milk starts to dissapear and form a paste add more. Eventually itll turn into a liquid again. Then put over medium heat and whisk until it thickens into a rue. To test if its ready put a spoon in and see how it drips. Should be thickish.

Whisk in 6 well beaten eggs. Keep whisking over the element with the heat off. add a visible amount of nutmeg or paprika, then slowly whisk in the cheese over the element + bacon grease and chopped up bacon.

Mix in with macaroni.

You will thank me later.
