Vancouver Bites’ Best of Vancouver, featuring Mac and Cheese

Rogue Lobster Macaroni and Cheese

I had the sad realization today that I haven’t written a Mac post in a long time. Don’t get me wrong, I haven’t stopped eating mac’n’cheese; I just haven’t blogged about it.

So without further ado, here are my current favourite Vancouver Macs.

I love Guinness. If I can both eat it and drink it at the same time—which is possible at Burgoo—then in good conscience, I am obligated to do so.

Acme Mac: Not Your Ordinary Mac'n'Cheese

I am about to make a bold claim: I have found the so-titled “Best Mac in Vancouver…So Far.” The Acme Café has now set the standard for Macaroni and Cheese. From here on out, all Macs will be compared with the Acme Mac.
