Mac Truck: A Surprising Combination That’s Hard to Resist

Mmmm...cheesy.

Macaroni and cheese has always been one of my favorite foods, so it was almost a shock that it has taken me weeks to try the Mac Truck that actually specializes in some delicious combinations of the classic American dish.

As I walked up to the bright yellow truck, I had to know: What was the most popular mac & cheese? The guy at the window immediately pointed me to the buffalo chicken version and recommended that I top it with toasted breadcrumbs and, surprisingly, the spicy mayo.

“Not ranch?” I asked.

“No, spicy mayo. Trust me.”

And I have to tell you: I’m really glad I did! The macaroni and cheese had the perfect amount of spice for me which, honestly, isn’t too much. The surprise of the little bit of spicy mayo on top of my breadcrumbs was the perfect little touch.

The complete, delicious meal cost me just $8 and for an extra $2 I could have gotten the large size. Some of their other options that looked great included the applewood bacon, cheeseburger and pulled pork. The buffalo chicken, though, was absolutely irresistible. Oh yes, trust me on that one.

If you’re craving a little mac & cheese, then go sample one of these great meals from the truck that’s only been open since the summer — but definitely worth every penny. To find their full menu (did I even MENTION the amazing fried mac bites?!), check out MacTruckNYC.com or find their location updates on Facebook or Twitter. Happy comfort food eating!
