The ooeyest, gooeyest mac and cheeses in Edmonton

Macaroni and cheese is, without a doubt, one of my comfort foods. And, is there really anyone who doesn’t like mac and cheese? Whether you’re eating it as a side, or a meal in itself, the phrase “mac and cheese” speaks for itself.

Urban Diner

12427 102 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T5N 0M2

The kitchen here prepares a just-like-mom-used-to-make “mac” and cheese. Except, instead of macaroni, they use another twisty pasta, the cavatappi, and sharp cheddar for the ooey gooeyness. Make this mac and cheese your own by adding your choice of grilled chicken, chicken apple sausage, hamburger mix or Nathan’s hot dog.

Wildflower Grill

10009 107 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5J 1J1

The chefs here give a seafood twist to this traditional dish. The truffled mac and cheese served with Atlantic lobster salad atop brioche crostini is to die for – truly. It’s one of the fancier mac and cheese dishes, but that just makes it even more amazing.

State & Main

5015 111 Street, Edmonton, AB T6H 4M6

They cook up a slew of comfort foods, and their mac and cheese is pretty delish. It has pieces of jalapeños, a blend of cheeses and fresh cream over the pasta. It’s baked with parm panko bread crumbs on top. To take it to the next level, add Cajun chicken, bacon or chorizo sausage.

Namaste India Restaurant & Cafe

10354 82 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T6E 1Z8

This fun pub serves up a hellava macaroni and cheese. With a double béchamel sauce and a panko crust on top, it’s heaven with every bite.

Brewsters Brewing Company & Restaurant

15820 87 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T5R 5Z1

Mac and meatloaf is a hungry man (or woman’s) meal. Imagine a meatloaf wrapped in BBQ bacon and mixed into a creamy bacon macaroni and cheese.

Zinc Restaurant

2 Sir Winston Churchill Sq NW, Edmonton, AB T5J 2C1

They serve up a chef’s special mac and cheese daily for lunch. It’s hard to say what you’ll get but based on past experience, you won’t be sorry. The hunter/gatherer mac and cheese is pretty awesome.

Blue Plate Diner

Main-12323 Stony Plain Rd NW, Edmonton, AB T5N 3Y5

This spot is an Edmonton staple. With a slight twist on the pasta choice, they use cavatappi pasta (corkscrew pasta), mixed with a delicious béchamel sauce, loaded with cheddar, mozza and asiago cheese, and topped with diced tomatoes.

The Hat Resto Pub

10251 Jasper Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T5J 1X8

This is one of the most interesting ways to serve up mac and cheese. The chef prepares it à la Japanese as four generous maki-style rolls stuffed with cream cheese, garlic, jalapeños and roasted red peppers. It’s panko-crusted for that perfect crust.

On a cold, snowy Edmonton night, nothing says lovin’ like a cup of hot chocolate. It’s no surprise this drink was originally dubbed the “elixir of the gods.” Regardless of the variety you select, or whether you opt for the simplest hot chocolate on the menu, all I can say is ... don’t forget the marshmallows.

Paired with a nice cup of coffee or topped with a scoop of ice cream, pie is unbeatable comfort food. And yet it faces stiff competition from cupcakes as the city’s dessert of choice. Well, pie is fighting back with old fashioned deliciousness as well as new and tantalizing flavours.
